The perfect place to house your garden tools, lawnmower and outdoor furniture, the 8×6 Lotus Anthracite Grey Apex Metal Shed is stronger, more durable and easier to assemble than standard metal sheds.Supplied with a superb 15-year antirust guarantee, this high-specification shed is the result of 2 years’ intensive research by industry experts, who have designed a shed for you that trumps its competitors in every respect. Boasting superior bracing throughout, as well as wrap-around corner panels, this garden shed is built from high-tensile, hot-dipped galvanised steel, with a heavy-gauge galvanised steel frame and base rails, so will prove unbeatably robust, impervious to rust and provide complete protection for your stored items for many years to come.

This garden storage shed doesn’t just boast brawn, but beauty too, for the traditional apex roof and stunning anthracite paint finish ensure an incredibly attractive appearance. Furthermore, the whole shed is near maintenance-free, saving you money and leaving you more time to do the things you enjoy.Not only suitable for the garden, this 8×6 shed is also perfect for caravan parks, where non-combustible storage units are compulsory. You gain storage-friendly access to the interior via an entry/ exit ramp and sliding double doors, which include padlockable steel door handles (padlock not included), so you can rest assured that your prized possessions will remain completely safe from unwanted attention.

These doors also boast a completely redesigned track layout, improving both its strength and stability, and which you are sure to notice by the deliciously smooth door glide. With dimensions of 198cm x 245cm x 185cm, this metal garden shed also features ventilated gables, which provide you with a pleasant working environment and your valuable tools with optimum storage conditions, as well as a generous wall height to suit even our tallest customers.

This ground-breaking, new garden shed might be painstakingly designed and constructed from leading-edge materials, but there’s one further thing that puts it at the head of its class: thanks to pre-drilled holes; a clear instruction manual; comprehensive video guide; and readily-available technical support, you will find it easier to assemble than any other metal shed.You can also purchase a variety of optional extras to personalise your new shed, including a window panel, Hilti screw kit, metal foundation kit and timber floor kit. Take a look at the Accessories menu to find out more.If you do not have an existing level base, you will require a Timber Floor Base Kit OR a Metal Foundation Kit.

Please read the section below on choosing between the two kits. You will NOT need to purchase both. Please also note that this shed is supplied WITHOUT flooring. If you desire a floor you will need to purchase the timber floor base kit or add your own with the help of the metal foundation kit. We stock models, with the same extraordinary specifications, in aluminium white, anthracite grey, heritage green, and in a range of sizes.
