The Keter Apollo Plastic Shed: Questions you may have
We understand that when going through the process of buying an important item for your garden, you like to understand the product fully before making a final decision. Below we identify and answer any questions that we think a potential buyer may have for us.
What can I store in the shed? This particular model is designed for outdoor equipment, tools, garden toys and garden furniture storage. Although these are what the designers had in mind for this outdoor shed, in reality you can store anything you like inside as the plastic construction ensures that all of your items are kept dry and protected from the elements.
There is a skylight roof? Yes, there is a skylight roof. This shed has been cleverly designed to allow natural light to flood into the shed during daytime hours. This is a unique feature not seen on traditional sheds, only highlighting the modern nature of the design. There is also a ventilation panel, allowing a certain amount of fresh air into the shed.
How secure is the shed? Due to its robust nature, this shed is very secure for your belongings. For security purposes you may wish to add a padlock to the double doors to give you peace of mind.
Can I add hooks or shelves? If you are storing smaller items such as tools, you may wish to add hooks or shelves for easy storage solutions. Unfortunately due to the plastic construction that is not possible, however some freestanding shelves and storage may be the solution.
Overall, we think this is a fantastic shed with many modern features that won’t be found on traditional wooden sheds. An excellent purchase for anyone wishing to buy a shed that will last them for years.
