6 x 5 Palram Skylight Plastic Amber Shed: Questions you may have
A plastic shed may not have one hundred percent of the charm and tradition of a wooden shed but they do their very best to combine a stylish exterior with a durable and long lasting storage solution. Their popularity continues to grow and they can offer many features that a wooden shed cannot. In this section we have a look at what the Skylight shed has to offer and how it can provide an effective storage solution for you.
Exterior: The Palram shed has an attractive exterior in natural colours that will allow the shed to blend into the garden with ease. It is constructed with polycarbonate panels and a strong galvanised frame. It is water and weather resistant, as well as being completely maintenance free; ideal for those looking for an easy storage solution for their garden.
Interior: The 6x5ft interior is on the small side but will provide enough storage space for those garden essentials or could alternatively be used as a bike storage shed. There is a floor ramp to allow easy access for wheeled items such as lawnmowers and bikes and the flooring is non-slip. An interior shelf is available as an optional extra and freestanding shelving could be used to create extra storage for smaller items.
Doors: The double doors give an opening measuring 131cm, allowing easy access for the items stored inside. The doors are made from aluminium and provide strength and security for the shed.
Security: For security purposes there is a latch on the double doors which may be locked with a padlock. A padlock may be purchased separately at a modest price.
6 x 5 Palram Skylight Plastic Amber Shed: How easy to build?
The Skylight shed will arrive at your door in a flat-packed package containing all of the panels, roofing, fixtures and fittings required for a straight-forward assembly process. You will need to provide your own basic set of tools and although DIY experience is a plus, it is definitely not a requirement. Due to its smaller dimensions, the Amber shed could possibly be built by an individual, however for safety reasons and efficiency we recommend that two people work on assembly together. A comprehensive set of instructions will be provided and we expect that the shed could be built within an afternoon.
