Description

Being traditional in style the 8x6 Apex Security Treated Shed has an apex roof, smooth planed finial and barge boards for a handsome appearance. Perfect for your general garden storage.

The door has safe and secure hidden hinges and is fitted with a secure hasp and staple latch for increased security. It is also braced with double "Z" framing for added strength and security, and can be hung on either side too. The absence of windows in the 8x6 Apex Security Treated Shed allows you to store your garden items more securely and out of sight.

Manufactured from square cut overlap timber boards to help rain water run off the building, and allows flexibility and movement in the 8x6 Apex Security Treated Shed. The floor is a solid hardwearing sheet material and the roof is finished with a weatherproof black sand roof felt, creating a long lasting build.

The timber is FSC certified timber from sustainable sources on this 8x6 Apex Security Overlap Shed, and it is dip treated and guaranteed against rot for 10 years, provided the shed is isolated from ground contact and is regularly retreated with timber preservative.

  • 10 year guarantee against rot

  • Strengthened door with extra diagonal framing
  • Hidden door hinges and hasp and staple latch for extra security
  • The barge boards are manufactured from smooth timber

  • 8mm overlap cladding, 8mm-10mm solid sheet roof and floor and 28x28mm framing
  • And finally we have added a finial on the apex sheds simply to make them look better!

Shed Base Options

Wooden Shed Base

Wooden Shed Base Kit

As an alternative to laying slabs or concrete, this shed base is a faster, more cost effective DIY solution suitable for use on uneven ground.

The wooden shed base consists of a pressure treated framework and galvanised steel spikes. The pressure treatment ensures that the framework is robust and is guaranteed to resist rot for an impressive 15 years. Galvanised steel spikes are then secured to the framework. They are designed to sink straight into the ground, so installation is simple and quick.

 

Plastic Shed Base

Plastic Shed Base Kit

Quick and simple to install, the 8x6 plastic shed base kit is ideal for avoiding the hassle of laying slabs or concrete when preparing a base for a new shed. Its interlocking design makes it easy to put together and, though lightweight, it provides a very strong and durable base for the shed. Made from 100% recycled plastic, this shed base is eco-friendly. Also, it can be reused if the shed is repositioned. The base allows for ventilation and drainage under the shed, helping to keep the shed floor dry.

To install the base, simply interlock the square grids together and lay onto a firm, level area of ground. We recommend using 15kg of 10m pea gravel per square (gravel not included). Each square is 500 x 500 x 50mm. This pack contains 20 squares and heavy-duty, commercially-graded weed membrane.

Dip treated sheds

What are the Benefits of a Dip Treated Shed?

Dip Treatment Process Explained

Dip treatment is a tried and tested method of applying wood preservative to timber products, and the process is fairly straightforward. First, the timber is dipped into a cylinder containing a powerful wood preservative. The preservative is then absorbed into the surface of the timber and, after it’s removed and left to dry, it will be thoroughly protected it against both rot and fungal decay.

After the dip treatment process is completed, the timber will have a lovely orangey-brown hue, ensuring it will become an attractive feature of your garden, as well as complementing most fence panels. Of course, you can choose to stain your dip treated shed another colour upon assembly. If you’re interested in an affordable, practical, and sturdy dip treated shed, why not take a look at our featured products below?
