Pictures 1, 2 and 3 shows the standard 11'x12' shed. Pictures 4 and 5 show close up views of the 4" thick ridge beam and the external cladding. Picture 6 shows the 6" wide door threshold slotted over the foundation rail and fixed into the plastic base.


These great value metal sheds are approximately 11'x10', 11'x12' or 11'x15' with an attractive grey coloured external finish. Heavier than most other comparable metal sheds, all framing and cladding is hot dip galvanized steel. The cladding and doors are also resin coated on both sides. Large sliding double doors in the 11' wide wall are included with lockable handles and a heavy duty threshold. Strong foundation rails are also included. The strong roof structure features 4" thick rafters and ventilated gables. All fixings and instructions are included. Options include a unique choice of base options and a selection of base anchor fixings to ensure that your shed is fixed down securely. Accessories include shelves, tool racks and tool hooks.

GALVANIZED STEEL CLADDING: These great value buildings are made with galvanized steel throughout. All framing and cladding is hot dip galvanized steel. This is a process by which steel is coated with zinc to protect it from corrosion. The cladding is subsequently coated with epoxy resin, partly to protect the zinc coating itself and partly to add colour. The factory finish is described as primer although a top coat is not normally needed. The combination of a zinc coating with epoxy resin provides durable protection even if the surface is scratched.

STRONG FRAMING: In common with all other steel buildings, including even the largest sports stadia, retail superstores and warehouses, steel cladding sheets are surprisingly thin. The strength of steel buildings is provided by the frame, although the corrugations of the cladding sheets do provide a degree of extra strength. These metal sheds feature strong galvanized steel framing members and the completed frame is rigid.

HEAVY PACKS: As a rough and ready rule, the heavier a metal shed is the stronger it is. Our sheds are heavier than most similar metal sheds which is why we publish the weight. The packs are very heavy but surprisingly compact, especially the cladding sheets which are packed tightly together.

DOOR SIZES - HEIGHT AND WIDTH: The door height listed above is the approximate head clearance height. The actual clear height of the opening is approximately 1" or 25mm less due to the door threshold. The approximate door opening width listed above is the minimum clearance which is safe to use when considering whether to purchase this building. We recommend allowing at least another 3" or 75mm all round any large objects to ensure easy access on a regular basis. In practice the actual opening width may be a few inches wider if the doors are set up with care.

SIZES - DEPTH AND WIDTH: Sizes are sometimes rounded to the nearest nominal size for ease of reading but the correct external sizes are listed alongside the price. The sizes listed alongside the prices are the external roof sizes. The external wall sizes may be smaller. The first dimension listed is the width and the second dimension is the depth. The width refers to the angled gable walls at the front and rear including the door wall. The depth refers to the side walls. All sizes are approximate.
