The Double Door 8x6 Delamere is a premium garden shed offering excellent garden storage. The Delamere is a dip-treated, shiplap, apex shed which is part of Forest Garden's The Better Shed range offering a stronger build and better features than other wooden sheds.
Expertly designed and built by one of the UK's leading shed manufacturers, The Better Shed's 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 Delamere's walls are constructed from 12mm shiplap cladding. Shiplap is a constructed using interlocking tongue and groove boards which offer a tight, weather-resistant finish with great strength and warp-resistance than overlap construction. Shiplap also features a scallop which aids water run-off and provides an attractive finish. Where the panels join together, cover strips are used to ensure the structure remains weathertight.
A thick 14mm pressure-treated timber boarded floor with pressure-treated bearers not only provides a long-lasting, effective barrier against ground moisture, it allows for the storage of heavier tools and machinery too. A timber floor is far superior to standard OSB flooring as it is more durable, more attractive and won't sag.
A metal truss bracket adds strength to and improves alignment of the roof beams. Made from 8mm OSB, the roof is finished with felt. Please note that felt colour may vary.
Storage-friendly access to the 8x6 shed is gained via wide double doors, which include double-Z framing to prevent them from dropping. Tamper-proof hidden hinges and a hasp and staple plate, designed for a padlock (padlock not included), help keep stored items safe.
Once inside, high eaves offer plenty of headroom and the opportunity to store taller items, while 2 PET-glazed windows allow for natural light. These windows are made from recycled materials, virtually shatterproof and will never discolour or become brittle. They can be fitted in a choice of positions.
All of the timber is FSC®-certified, which is the only wood certification scheme endorsed by the major environmental charities. Fixtures, fittings and clear instructions are included for a simple assembly.
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.
