Asgard manufacture very strong and secure Metal Storage units for garden equipment, bikes, motor cycles and mobility scooters, Nathan James Dodd reviews their impressive range.
Made from polyester powder coated heavy duty galvanised steel, Asgard products are highly durable, weatherproof and comes with a ten year warranty. They are particularly useful for valuable items due to their strength and security.
Smaller units are just right if you have a selection of equipment found in most gardens, a hose, mower, spade etc. With double doors opening at the front, the Vangard is very practical especially if you have an allotment. The larger Asgard Access Garden Store has an opening top as well as double doors.
There are several bike stores, both horizontal or vertical to save space, a twin store for two bikes and another that is double ended. Your valuable bicycle will be secure with pick resistant three point locking, and the unit can be bolted to the ground with supplied securing bolts.
The Flexistore range is a very good alternative to the traditional garden shed. At 5ft wide, the longest version is just under 11ft. Pre-drilled to fix heavy duty shelves and hook packs, the door is reinforced and the shed well ventilated without compromising security.
Very popular with schools and similar organisations, Gladiator and Centurion sheds come with integral metal floors, shelving and hooks. They already possess plenty of internal space but both can be lengthened with extension modules giving unlimited storage.
Particularly useful is the optional metal ramp. With no lip to step over, access is very easy for heavy items. Simply slipped under the shed the ramp is held in place and the door will close over the top.
Asgard's two dedicated motorcycle secure garages with large double doors include the ramp as standard, togeher with a metal base, plywood flooring, shelving and hook rail for your helmet and clothing.
A unique ventilation minimises condensation, the vented side panel allows exhaust to escape and there's an electric mounting plate on which a socket can be fitted to provide mains electricity.
