8' x 6' Forest Apex Shed
Product code: SHS25407
The 8’x6’ Forest Overlap Dip Treated Windowless Apex Wooden Shed is UK-built and features a clever modular design, which makes for easier assembly and a stronger garden storage shed.
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 apex roof features a sturdy metal truss bracket for extra strength.
This Forest Shed is supplied without a roof covering, unless one is selected. The selection includes 3 weather-resistant roof covering options:
- A green mineral felt which offers a better finish than standard black sand felt.
- A premium PolyFelt with twice the tear resistance of industry-standard shed felt and a 15-year life expectancy.Standard felt is only expected to last 5 years.
- The leading-edge SkyGuard EPDM Roof Membrane Kit, with its extraordinary 20-year guarantee and 50-year life expectancy, provides unbeatable weatherproof protection. The kit comes with a membrane, adhesive, applicator and sealant.
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, while the windowless design acts as an additional security measure. Once inside, high eaves offer plenty of headroom and make it easy to store taller items.
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 traditional design, smooth-planed barge boards and finial 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 and a set of 2 unbreakable PET windows can be purchased as optional extras too, as can a lean-to kit for extra sheltered storage space. Please be advised that this lean-to kit is pressure-treated for a longer life and so is a different shade of timber to the shed.
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. This can be purchased with or without windows and a lean-to kit.
Delivery is free to most UK addresses.
