Metal bike storage sheds are becoming quite popular with one of their main features being that they do not need to be treated like wooden sheds. Often coming with warranties of 10-25 years, this is something which wooden stores can’t match. And this is without having to do anything. For the bike owner who would like to do the least amount of work then this type of outdoor bike storage can be particularly attractive to them.
You will find that these bicycle storage sheds come in a large range of qualities and examples are the cheap shed ranges. These are inexpensive domestic garden sheds which could do a job of keeping your items dry in your garden. You may be able to fit a padlock to these to deter the casual thief but by their very nature and inexpensive price tags will not stop any professional thieves, so you need to be wary of these types of buildings.
Some of these cheap ranges have vents, but not all, which help to reduce condensation and if you build a purpose-built base with a DPC (damp proof course) built in then condensation should not be a such a problem. Most of these cheaper bike sheds are made abroad and are compactly packed for easy home delivery.
You could then look at the SafeStore Silver range of metal garden bike storage sheds. The walls on these buildings are shaped to give the appearance of wood so you can have the advantages of a metal shed with the look of a wooden shed. Robustly built and come complete with a fire certificate, which is great if you are buying one for a mobile home park. The quality of these is so good they offer a 25-year guarantee, totally surpassing most other garden bike sheds makers. Made in the UK you can be sure you are helping other British workers and helping to reduce imports into this country.
If security is the key to your requirements then the SafeStore Gold secure steel motorcycle sheds should be your choice. Although the price range is substantially higher than the more basic metal bike storage sheds, you will find this is reflected in the thickness and construction of these buildings. Most are made from extra thick 1.2mm thick Galvatite steel and with door and with surrounds reinforced with 1.6mm steel box section the thieves have no chance. The larger garage have a robust 5 point (pick resistant) locking system offering you unrivalled garden security.
Besides the high quality and high security offered by these SafeStore Gold secure steel garages, they all come complete with a steel base-floor which none of the other ranges do. This means that when the bike shed is built you have a secure steel box which can’t just be lifted up. Supplied in large panels for ease of construction. Make in the UK as well many of these steel motorcycle sheds are made to insurance rated standard 1. The SafeStore Gold have an optional assembly service available as well.
If the above is not suitable for you and you are looking for a slightly larger building then you could consider a Capital Steel Buildings. These are made in the UK to any size (literally) to suit your requirements. In a choice of colours and various options including steel roller doors, personal doors, skylights and insulated panels you can be sure these will meet your exacting requirements. These also come with a 25-year guarantee against rusting so you know you have a long lasting building.
Another popular choice are concrete bike sheds which are very strong and very secure from the point of view of stopping thieves getting in. Available in a range of sizes and styles they are all assembled free of charge. All you have to do is to provide a solid, level concrete base for the garage to go onto.
Timber make good outdoor bike storage units and is another good option. They are very flexible in the size of building available. However, only buy wooden bike sheds made from Tongue and grooved timber as this will stop thieves getting into the building by ripping off the outer cladding. Always ensure your make sure the hinges and door is secured using security screws. Most wooden bike sheds will be erected free of charge.
Other advantages are that metal is not attacked by harmful termites or timber rot. It’s harder for mice and other crawlies to make their home in a metal shed and the roof felt does not need replacing as it is not used.
All in all its worth giving metal bicycle sheds some consideration before making your choice of a shed. As I have said before always try to see the shed before buying and be very aware of the cheap metal sheds seen in the catalogues in the high street. You NEVER have an opportunity to view these and it’s not until they arrive in your garden that you realise why these sheds are so cheap. A well-known fact is that a cheap shed is not necessarily the best value shed.
