Steelmates Garden Sheds Features
Special Features of Steelmates Garden Sheds
Note:Almost all the imported sheds are from China, and the manufacturers in China are all adapting same type of design. No matter which other supplier you get shed from, they are all going to be like the one shown in photos marked as "other sheds".
1. Stronger Structure
Steelmates garden sheds are configured with 0.4mm colour steel panels or zinc coated panels, and double folded 1.2mm frames. All frames are in U shape, comparing with L shaped framing from other suppliers. For bigger sized sheds, extra supportive cross bars are included for added strength.
2. Higher Wall Panels
Wall panels height determines the height of the shed, especially the entrance height. Because larger package increase cost of transportation, kitset sheds are commonly equipped with wall panels less than 1.7m long. Steelmates sheds have minimum 1.8m tall panels. It gives you more head room, and no more watching your head when you enter or exit the shed.
3. Quicker Assembly
- Pre-assembled doors. All other kit set sheds' door panels are the only parts that are not pre drilled. Reason is that the door panels are the only parts with diagonal bracing, no machine can precise pouch the holes. It is very common to spend hours just to complete the doors. However, for every shed Steelmates supplies, it comes with assembled door/doors, with hinges fixed. It is just a matter of fixing the hinges onto the door frame.
- Majority of kitset garden sheds does not have the combined frames and panels. The installation starts from bottom up, where the bottom frames are set first, then panels are fixed onto the bottom frames. During this process, the panels are not free standing. A second person is required to hold the panels while the installer fixes the screws. The big shes can not be finished within a day, so the unfinished structure will need to be left overnight, unless spending extra amount of time to properly secure the structure, you will see damaged parts in the morning, or trashed in some worst cases. Steelmates garden sheds, on the other hand, starts the assembly by assembling the side walls, the panels are capped with top and bottom frames. This procedure can be completed indoor. The finished wall panels are then brought outside, with two screws every corner, the shed will be free standing within 10 minutes. What's left to do are only the roof panels. Since the Steelmates supply the door assembled, all the field work can be finished within a day, no matter how big the shed is.
