Modern PVCu and Heavy Duty Plastic Garden Storage Sheds

Every once in a while Trade Window Services Ltd come across a new product that makes us sit up and take notice, especially when that product utilises the dynamic properties of modern plastics and PVCu’s. In this case, the information came from a seemingly unlikely source – the specialist Metal Sheds website,

When most people think of garden sheds they think of traditional timber structures with an apex roof, a single door, side window and weatherproof green mineral felt roofing. The wooden shed has been around for decades and no doubt will continue to be the default choice for garden storage for many years to come.

As the name suggests, Metal Sheds Online exists primarily to promote the virtues of secure metal outdoor storage buildings. They also warn readers of what to watch out for when buying cheaper or inferior metal storage products. (For example, for a guaranteed rust proof finish always buy a metal shed that has been hot-dipped galvanised rather than electroplated.)

Perhaps unexpectedly, Metal Sheds Online offers some keen insights on PVCu and heavy duty plastic sheds. Modern plastic sheds have been developed over many years to provide an excellent alternative to traditional timber sheds. Plastic sheds from reputable retailers such as SM Garden Sheds are manufactured from UV resistant materials that will not crack, warp or succumb to the vagaries of the British weather. Plastic sheds are available in a wide range of sizes, styles and designs, and at prices to suit every budget.

Metal Sheds Online particularly drew our attention to the Lifetime range of plastic garden sheds. Lifetime sheds are manufactured from steel reinforced polyethylene. Made from recyclable components, many of the parts are pre-assembled with steel bracing built into double skinned wall panels for added strength. Lifetime sheds feature high eaves and rounded top double doors, robust button catch door handles, and optional skylight panels. They are weather and stain resistant and look attractive in any garden.

Lifetime also manufacture a fantastic range of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) garden workshops and plastic garden storage containers – all available from online retailers, SM Garden Sheds.
