Description

The 8’x6’ Forest Overlap Dip Treated Pent Wooden Shed is built in the UK and boasts a smart modular design, making it incredibly easy to assemble and supremely strong.

This garden shed is part of a comprehensive range of sheds, expertly designed and built by one of the UK’s leading shed manufacturers. Its intelligent modular design means it is delivered in smaller sections, making it far easier to assemble than other garden sheds. This modular design also results in more extensive 28mm shed framing, ensuring an incredibly robust structure and far greater resistance to warping.

The shed walls are constructed from 7mm overlap cladding, which allows the natural movement of the timber throughout the changing seasons and aids efficient rainwater run-off. Wherever the panels join together, cover strips are used to ensure the structure remains completely weathertight.

A 14mm pressure-treated solid timber floor with bearers not only provides a long-lasting, effective barrier against ground moisture, it allows for the storage of heavier tools and machinery too. The 8mm OSB pent roof comes with a black sand felt covering to keep out the rain.

Access to the shed is gained via a single door, which can be hung with a left or right-hand opening, to suit the garden’s orientation, and includes double-Z framing to prevent the door from dropping. Tamper-proof hidden hinges and a hasp and staple plate, designed for a padlock (padlock not included), help keep stored items safe.

Once inside, 2 PET-glazed windows allow plenty of natural light. These windows are made from recycled materials, virtually shatterproof and will never discolour or become brittle. They can be fitted either side of the door, offering even more versatile garden storage.

All of the timber is FSC®-certified, which is the only wood certification scheme endorsed by the major environmental charities. Not only robust, weatherproof and ethical, this garden shed’s clean-cut lines result in an incredibly attractive appearance.

Fixtures, fittings and clear instructions are included for a simple assembly, although a professional installation service is available to purchase as an optional upgrade. A pressure-treated shed base can be purchased as an optional extra too.

This wooden shed is supplied dip-treated and should be coated in a quality wood preservative, annually, in order to maintain its handsome appearance and validate the excellent 10-year anti-rot guarantee. A pressure-treated model is also available, which does not require treatment and is backed by a fantastic 15-year anti-rot guarantee.

Delivery is free to most UK addresses.

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.

The wooden shed base consists of a framework that is made from UC4 incised timber which has been pressure treated. The pressure treatment ensures that the framework is robust and is guaranteed to resist rot for an impressive 15 years.

Size of base: 7.5cm (h) x 236cm (w) x 182.6cm (d)

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 10mm 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.

Why choose a Dip Treated Forest Shed?

When you buy a new shed, you want to invest in a shed that is robust, durable and practical. Forest Dip Treated sheds offer you all this along with great value for money.

Forest branded dip treated sheds have a number of features to ensure maximum durability and strength including boarded wooden floors, security door hinges, extra framing and so much more.

The best overlap sheds we've ever made

FLEXIBILE WINDOWS

Same size panels are interchangeable - you can choose the window placement to suit your garden allowing flexibility for your garden design.

FLEXIBLE DOORS

Doors can be positioned to the left or right of the shed. Single doors can be hung to be left- or right-hand opening.

  • treatment

    Dip treatment coats the timber in a preservative which protects the wood from rot and fungal decay. When supported by annual applications, this treatment provides at least a decade of protection.

  • floor

    Strong 14mm pressure-treated boarded timber floor. This wooden floor is built to withstand storage of heavier items as well as years of footfall. The floor is further strengthened by pressure treated bearers. A timber floor is far superior to the OSB that comes with standard sheds.

  • extra strength

    The design of our sheds features more extensive framing than standard sheds. This results in a more robust build. Larger apex models also feature a metal truss bracket that adds further strength to the roof and ensures best alignment.

  • cladding

    Straight edge overlap cladding provides consistency and strength as well as providing the traditional style we all know and love. The high-quality cladding means the panels are less likely to warp or develop gaps.

  • windows

    Our windows are glazed with shatterproof PET glazing, made from recycled materials, which will not yellow or become brittle over time. PET is more robust than the styrene used in standard sheds.

  • doors

    Our doors feature double Z bracing for extra strength, security and to prevent the doors dropping. This is superior to the basic ledge bracing on standard sheds. Our doors are also fitted with hidden security hinges and a padlock-ready hasp and staple.

Comes with a 15 year anti-rot guarantee.

Pressure Treatment. No need for annual retreatment.

Smaller sections make transportation and handling easy.

Quick and easy construction.

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?
