The 6’5 x 2’3 Trimetals Senator Metal Storage Unit is one fantastic looking storage unit that would serve well as a place to keep your mower, some bikes, children’s toys or even just general clutter that does not have a home. Everything you place in here will be kept safe thanks to the strong galvanised metal body which is coated in high quality PVC. This is a unit that can stand up against bad weather, thieves, and it is even fire resistant. If you want to keep things safe and secure then this is where you will put them. It offers a generous amount of space for storage, but it does not require a big area to be placed into which makes it a storage unit which will easily fit into gardens that do not have a whole lot of space.
By using top of the line materials such as galvanised metal, you can be sure this is a storage unit that is going to last. Trimetals actually give you a 25 year guarantee – that is how sure they are of these materials. One of the stand out features of the storage unit is the spring loaded opening of the lid and front, making getting things in and out no hassle at all.

Let's Take a Closer Look...
Shed Type And Roof Size
For the people who want to have a safe and secure place in their garden to keep all their items either off the lawn, out of the house or just safe from the elements, Trimetals is here with their Senator Metal Storage Unit to give you a good amount of storage space in a cool, strong and modern style that does not take up a vast amount of space in your garden. There is 6 feet 4 inches of width along with 2 feet 3 inches of depth which is more than enough to keep things like the lawn mower or the kids garden playthings out of the way and safe from rain. There is a surprising amount of height inside the unit with the back being the tallest part at, 5 feet 2 inches and the front being 4 feet 2 inches.
The roof that Trimetals use at first sounds a little on the unusual side as it is more of a roof/lid/door all wrapped into one. Like we said it does sound odd, but it actually works and works very well. When the unit is all closed up the roof is a pent style roof. This kind of roof works wonders at keeping the rain out by always making sure it runs off the front.
Cladding, Frame And Floor
The materials that the 6’5 x 2’3 Trimetals Senator Metal Storage Unit is made from are nothing short of top of the line. The whole unit is comprised from galvanised metal which has been coated in PVC that is fire resistant and it also looks incredible. Trimetals take great pride in their storage unit being roughly twice as thick as comparable storage units and when you give this thing a little tap or nudge, you really can feel right away just how solid and strong it is.
Talking about the frame at first is a little bit awkward as there is no frame to talk about, but the reason for this is that there actually is no need for one. This galvanised metal is strong enough on its own that it does not need a frame getting in the way and eating into your storage space.
The flooring is made from the same kind of galvanised metal that the rest of the storage unit is. This is incredibly durable and will be able to take a whole lot of weight. So no matter what you are thinking of storing inside of here, we are sure this can take it.
Treatment Requirement And Warranty
Low maintenance is what the 6’5 x 2’3 Trimetals Senator Metal Storage Unit gives you and that is something we are very happy with. This has been crafted to last many years and do so without you really having to do anything. There is no treatment required, you just build it and then let it be. Of course if you want it to keep looking sharp you may want to get the bucket and sponge out, but that is the most you have to do to keep this in tip top shape.
Trimetals offer you a 25 year guarantee that is how sure they are of the panels that are used on this storage unit. This is one of the longest guarantees that we have seen and any company that is willing to cover you for this long is good in our book.
Doors And Windows
We briefly mentioned up above that the door and roof are kind of the same, well here we will take a closer look at it. There is no actually door here instead we have a roof and a front panel that are spring assisted so when you want to get into the storage unit you pull on the handle and the whole front panel and roof open up. You then have easy access to everything that you have inside. We love this as it really does make storing things and getting them out to use very easy. Being spring assisted means that there is no strength required just a gentle pull to open and a push to close that is all you need to do. The ease of access makes this something that would be easy for kids to use to store their outdoor toys.
Trimetals do not use any windows on this storage unit and we, to be fair, do not have anything negative to say about this as we feel windows would have drastically affected how strong and secure the unit was.
Security And Privacy
The 6’5 x 2’3 Trimetals Senator Metal Storage Unit is one tough and secure way to keep things safe. Made with very strong materials it also has a couple of slots where you can easily add a padlock which is great if you plan on storing a bike or something else valuable inside.
This is a very private storage unit and it would be near impossible for someone to peek inside. You can keep expensive things inside here and be certain that no one will know they are inside.
Customisation Options And Extras
This storage unit is only available in one colour scheme – a two tone green with one being olive green and the other a little darker. Because of the materials that are used there is not anything you can do to customise it on the outside, but that good amount of space you have inside can be organised just the way you want it.
For an extra £33.99 you can add a wooden floor to the storage unit to give the floor a little bit more of a flat surface to stand things on.
So, How Does It All Stack Up?
We could not be any more impressed with just how high quality the galvanised metal is and also the PVC which has been used to coat it.
Longevity Of Materials9/10
We think that this is going to be a storage unit which will last way past the 25 years the guarantee Trimetals gives you. The way it has been designed and the materials used will certainly ensure you get a lot of use out of this.
This is not the largest storage unit, but like anything that has dimensions like this the storage space available can be made to feel much more if you plan before you start to put things inside.
Ease Of Installation7.5/10
You and a friend will have a pretty stress free time slotting and bolting this together. The instructions are easy enough to follow and as long as you have the kettle on it will be a fairly good experience which in around 2-4 hours will see this standing with pride in your garden.
Value For Money8/10
Sure this is a little on the expensive side, but just look at what you are getting for your money. You are getting a strong, sturdy, waterproof and fire resistant place to store your belongings. So we actually do not think the price tag is out of line at all here.
Final Thoughts: The 6'5 x 2'3 Trimetals Senator Metal Storage Unit would be ideal for a number of different people. From those with not too much space, but want somewhere safe to store things, to those who already have a shed, but just want that little extra storage space that is more secure to keep the more expensive items safe. We feel that this is one very strong and reliable storage unit which when you consider just how many years use you are going to get out of it and how high quality the materials it is made from are, the price is actually more than fair. We are sure that no one who buys this is going to be disappointed as it really is a fantastic storage unit.
