- Brand: StoreMore
- Product Code: SML052
- Availability: In Stock
A result of two years research and development into light clad metal sheds, the NEW Lotus Sheds are a welcome addition to our Metal Shed range. Designed to offer a low maintenance and durable garden storage solution for smaller gardens or for use on caravan parks where non-combustible sheds are compulsory, the Lotus 8 x 5 shed is constructed using hot-dipped galvanised steel throughout and carries a 10 year manufacturer's warranty.
The shed features high 178cm side walls with ventilated gables, and the frame and base are made from solid heavy gauge galvanised steel. Double sliding doors provide great access making it easy to store and retrieve bulky items, and the door glide has been completely re-designed to provide a more stable and well balanced door opening.
Designed for simple, straightforward assembly in the quickest time possible the shed is supplied with a user friendly manual with easy to follow illustrations.
It is essential that these sheds are anchored to a suitable solid base to protect against wind damage. We can supply an optional Timber Floor Kit or Soft Ground Foundation Kit if required (See details below). A leaflet with instructions on how to create a base is available on request.
This shed is designed to be installed by two people on a DIY basis but can take less experienced DIY people several hours to complete. Home installation is therefore offered as an optional extra and is recommended to ensure a professional finish. The installation team will book a date with you to carry out the installation and will install the shed and the foundation kit within 3 weeks of your order being delivered.
Do I need to buy a base for my shed?
- The sheds need to be positioned on level ground upon a damp proof membrane.
- The Timber Floor Kit provides you with a quick and cost effective shed base. Simple place the floor on your level ground over your damp proof membrane and attach the shed to it.
- The Soft Ground Foundation Kit is a steel grid which you install over your damp proof membrane before attaching the shed to it (see illustration below). Once installed, you can fill with concrete or cover with marine ply to create an internal floor.
- If you already have a concrete or slab base with a damp proof membrane, you will not require an additional base but should purchase the Solid Ground Anchor Kit which includes the necessary number of Hilti anchor bolts to secure the shed to the ground.
