Shed type and roof and size
This is a metal storage shed that measures up at 9 x 11. This means that you have a width that is certainly respectable for a small storage shed at 277 cm. The depth of the building is obviously important too, and this measures up at 310 cm. So there is plenty of space available inside for you to store a variety of items.
When it comes to the use you can get out of it, the lack of a window means it makes a great security shed. If you have some valuable pieces of garden machinery for example, it’s a perfect place to store them. And as it’s big enough to store bikes, you have space and added peace of mind.
A lot of work has gone into this small building. You want reliability and strength with a storage shed, and this one has it in spades. We like the fact that the whole unit has been made with hot-dipped galvanised steel. This stuff is basically rust proof, and this is where you have the longevity aspect. The roof has been galvanised, so there’s no chance of rain water causing a problem. It’s just good quality, and it means you have long life for the building.
There is also something extra here that adds a lot of value. The roof is high, high enough for you to move around in the storage shed. So there’s plenty of use to be had. It’s a pent roof too, so you get speedier run-off of rainwater.
Cladding and frame and floor
That galvanised steel makes a big difference, and it has essentially brought a shed that is completely rust-proof. You get a lot of life out of metal sheds these days anyway, but the zinc that has been added to this frame means that rust won’t be an issue. On top of that, you don’t have to worry about treating it or any maintenance. It’s just strong and reliable.
A foundation kit is supplied, so you can easily get your own flooring organised. It isn’t a big job, and it gives you some flexibility in this area.
Treatment requirement and warranty
With galvanised steel throughout, you’re looking at a shed that is completely maintenance free. That means no work to keep it going. It’s tough and it’s durable. The metal panels are rust free for life.
Doors and windows
No windows, and that’s a benefit for a storage shed like this one. But you do have sliding doors that are actually rather neat. They open sideways smoothly, so you have quick and easy access. This makes a big difference when you’re trying to get bulky stuff in. One neat feature can be found in the doorway in the shape of a porch. You can keep that flooring clean by scraping your boots on the way in. It’s a small feature, but we think it’s a nice touch.
Security and privacy
Those sliding doors are lockable. You also have that added security with the lack of windows. Generally speaking, this shed was built for safe and secure storage and we like the sense of stability and security the unit has.
There is nothing here as regards customisation, unless you consider the choice of flooring. It’s a basic storage shed, and we feel it has all it needs anyway.
Quality of construction
Longevity of material
Final Thoughts: This is a truly useful shed. The security aspect is fantastic, and we like the fact you can comfortably (unless you’re over 6’2) enter and exit the unit. It’s a tough and durable storage shed, perfect for storing bikes, without any worries at all about rust or erosion.
