Our verdict on the 6’4 x 2’9 Trimetals Ramped Metal Bike Shed Cream

The 6’4 x 2’9 Trimetals Ramped Metal Bike Shed Cream holds a 25 Years guarantee and is treated using a galvanised process [1].

Base material: steel [2]

Our experts say this has 1 stand out feature. A stand out feature is something found on over 70% of the top 10% of products in a particular category or is an exceptionally good feature as rated by our panel of experts.

1. A galvanised treatment like the one used on this shed is one our experts are happy to say is one of the best around.

Below is a brief overview of how some of the key points of this shed fairs across the market.

Treatment/Guarantee

The galvanised treatment process used here is the best type of treatment out of 2 [3] types we’ve identified on same-size sheds that you’ll see getting used on 13% [4] (547 of 4,360) of all sheds analysed, as well as being used on 30% [5] (129 of 436) of the top 10% of sheds. You’ll also find the galvanised treatment showing up on 36% of 6′ x 3′ sheds (44 in total [6]), and when taking the average Expert Score of those 6′ x 3′ sheds (94), the 6’4 x 2’9 Trimetals Ramped Metal Bike Shed Cream is just above the average with an Expert Score of 95.

On a metal shed, the guarantee that the manufacturer offers is usually a very good indicator of the quality of the building. The longer the guarantee the more the manufacturer believes in the quality of the building they have produced. Typically we see manufacturer guarantees for metal Sheds ranging from zero right up to a 30 years guarantee.

This metal shed comes with a 25 years guarantee. Most metal shed come with a 10 years guarantee (36.47% of them) [7].

For this particular brand (Trimetals) they offer 12 [8] different types of guarantees on their metal sheds, with the 25 years guarantee on this being the longest they offer. The 25 years guarantee is found on 91.67% of Trimetals metal sheds [9], with a 15 year guarantee on 8.33% of its metal sheds. It is great that this shed was given one of the highest guarantees offered by the brand, and this shows the manufacturer has a lot of faith in the overall quality of this part of their product range.

When looking at comparable 6′ x 3′ metal sheds (we found 123 of them) the most popular guarantee length offered by manufacturers was 10 years [10]. 44.72% came with a missing guarantee, 36.59% came with a 10 year guarantee, 16.26% came with a 15 year guarantee and 2.44% came with a 25 year guarantee.

Cladding

The steel cladding(walls) used here is an about average form of construction for walls and is the only type [11] we’ve identified on same-size sheds, that you’ll also see getting used on 14% (592 of 4,360) of all sheds analysed [12], as well as being used on 29% (128 of 436) of the top 10% of sheds [13]. You’ll also find the steel cladding showing up on 37% of 6′ x 3′ sheds (46 in total) [14], and when taking the average Expert Score of those 6′ x 3′ sheds (93), the 6’4 x 2’9 Trimetals Ramped Metal Bike Shed Cream is just above the average with an Expert Score of 95.

Flooring

The manufactures of this shed chose metal for the floor construction, we rate this one of the best forms of floor construction and is the only type found on this size of shed [15]. This type of floor construction is used on 1% of all sheds we analysed, and 3% of the top 10% of those sheds. Even though the Expert Score of this shed is 1 point lower than that of the average for 6′ x 3’s floored with a metal material (95 vs the average of 96), you can be sure it’s not due to the flooring because this one of the highest scoring flooring materials available on 6′ x 3′ sheds. 4% of 6′ x 3′ sheds (5 in total) use metal construction for the floor.

The height of this shed is 1330.0mm (4′) which is 23% less than the average 6′ x 3′ shed, giving you 310.0mm (1′) less headroom.

Public-Facing – Extra security measures might be more of a concern if you’re placing your building in an area that is more public-facing than a garden. Features such as security windows or even having no windows at all, and the ability to lock all opening doors are usually much more important when you have something that is more public-facing. We found at least 3 sheds that have options that you might find a better fit if this is a concern you have.

More Child Friendly – If you have children and you are looking for something that has that little extra in terms of durability then tougher glazing options might be a better option. Here we have at least 3 other options that will fill those needs.

1. Galvanised: Galvanising steel or Zinc Galvanised steel as it is sometimes called refers to the process where steel is immersed into molten zinc. This is where a series of zinc-iron alloy forms a series layers via a metallurgical reaction between the iron and zinc, providing a robust coating which is an integral part of the steel.

Galvanised steel is among the most corrosion resistant due to its sacrificial protection and self-repairing properties. According to the Galvanizers Association they say “Hot dip galvanising offers coverage both externally and internally within hollow sections, it self-repairs when damaged, sacrifices itself to protect the base metal, is environmentally sustainable, has good impact and abrasion-resistance and a maintenance-free life of 50 years or more. Galvanised steel is widely used in applications where corrosion protection is needed and can be identified by the crystallised pattern on the surface (often called a ‘spangle’).” 

2. Steel: Is the “world’s most important engineering and construction material” according to the World Steel Accosiation. When it comes to garden structure steel is often a very strong and durable metal, although if it is untreated then it is prone to rust and corrosion. Steel is an alloy of iron mixed with less than 2% carbon and 1% manganese and small amounts of silicon, phosphorus, sulphur and oxygen. When steel comes into contact with water and oxygen there is a chemical reaction and the steel begins to revert to its original form – iron oxide (that’s Rust to the layperson). Steel must be coated in a protective layer to stop this reaction, for most garden applications this consists of powder coating or the more stable and long lasting use of galvanising the steel first.
