Probably the highest-specification heavy-duty plastic shed available today, the 8×5 Lifetime Special Edition Heavy Duty Plastic Shed offers you exceptional garden storage and is backed by a superb 10-year guarantee. Built from 20mm high-density polyethylene (HDPE), reinforced by heavy-duty powder-coated steel, this garden shed is robust, durable and will provide your tools and equipment with complete weatherproof protection. Furthermore, it is completely maintenance-free, so theres no need to waste your valuable time and money on re-treatments. The sheds UV-protected qualities mean it will never discolour, fade or crack; all you need to do is occasionally wipe it down with a damp cloth to keep it looking pristine.

This premium plastic sheds flooring is also made from 20mm HDPE, so is equally hardwearing and completely slip-resistant. The steeply-pitched HDPE apex roof is reinforced by heavy-duty steel trusses, facilitates excellent rainwater run-off and will keep your stored items completely protected from the elements. An internal spring latch and deadbolts allow you to quickly obtain stored items through one of the doors, or gain full, storage-friendly access through both of them. These double doors are fitted with a hasp and staple (padlock not included), so rest assured that your valuable tools will always be safe from unwanted attention.

Once inside, youll notice that the interior benefits from an abundance of natural light, thanks to 2 small skylights and 1 large, latch-and-lock, opening window. Made from polycarbonate, this glazing is completely shatterproof and far safer than conventional glass perfect for your busy garden. Youll have no problem customising your garden storage, either, for 2 peg strips, 2 corner shelves, 2 30×10 shelves and 1 90×9 heavy-duty plastic shelf all come as standard. Should you desire, you can purchase further peg strips and shelves as optional extras. Installation hardware is included to help you achieve a straightforward assembly. Free delivery is available to most UK addresses.
