One of the first things to consider when thinking about a new shed, is whether to go with timber or steel. While appearance is an important aspect, it’s vital that your shed is durable and protects your valuables too. And that’s not all… so here we outline some of the main benefits of choosing a steel shed to help you make an informed decision.
Metal is not an easy material to damage and provides long lasting protection. All KiwiSpan steel sheds are made with galvanised steel which protects your shed from corrosion and rust. Steel sheds have proven themselves over time to be robust – an investment that will add value to your property for a long time to come.
The occasional hosing down and cleaning of gutters is really all that’s needed, saving your time, energy, and money.
Steel sheds provide a higher degree of protection against theft with sturdy openings and steel cladding that is harder to penetrate. If your shed will house valuable stock or supplies, a steel shed is the way to go.
By its very nature metal is fire-retardant and needs very high temperatures before melting. A steel shed is a far more sensible option in dry, fire prone areas, and in sheds where there is a risk of a fire starting due to the type of activity being undertaken. For example, sparks can be created from mechanical work, or where there is a lot of electrical activity, or even in sheds where high temperatures may result from industrial activity. With a commercial steel shed, you can enjoy peace of mind that you and your valuables will be protected against the risk of fire.
It’s easier to achieve a clean modern look with the square lines and straight edges of a steel shed. With a huge variety of colours on offer, and a choice of profiles, you can design your steel shed to complement and fit in with any existing buildings on the same site.
