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.
FREE GALVANIZED STEEL BASE BEAMS: The galvanized steel base beams are fixed to the foundation rails of your shed, providing a choice of two floor options. The base beams can be used as floor joists to support a timber floor or as shuttering to make laying a mortar screed easier. The beams can be laid directly onto any hard flat surface including paving, concrete or decking. The steel frame is easy to assemble and the correct size to suit your shed.
A timber floor can be constructed with either tongued and grooved timber boards or man made boards such as plywood, OSB or chipboard. Alternatively, a mortar screed can be laid using the steel beams to divide the floor into small sections, which makes laying a level screed easier. Each section is filled with mortar and levelled with a piece of wood stretched across the surrounding steel beams. The foundation rails and beams include flanges which are buried under the mortar screed to ensure that your building is anchored down by the screed.
Everything you need is included except the mortar or the timber boards, which are widely available from DIY stores or online. The easiest way to make a screed is using pre-mixed mortar. You just add water and stir before use. Alternatively, it may be cheaper to buy the sand and cement separately and mix the mortar with 1 part cement to 4 parts sand. Based on the internal area of your shed you will need around 40-50kg of mortar per square metre.
FREE CORNER BRACKETS: Corner brackets are recommended for any metal building which is subject to frequent use or sited in an exposed area. The corner brackets strengthen the corners and also make it easier to fix your building down into a solid base. The kit includes 4 galvanized steel corner brackets. Screws are included to fix the brackets into the foundation rails. Screws and nylon plugs are also supplied for fixing into bricks, concrete or paving slabs.
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.
SIZES - DEPTH AND WIDTH: The sizes are listed alongside the price. The first dimension listed is the depth and the second dimension is the width. The depth refers to the sloping wall. The sizes listed alongside the prices are the external roof sizes. The external wall sizes may be smaller.
