Forest have been making high quality timber garden products for over half a century and at GLEE David Coton had the chance to see their brand new storage range that has recently been launched.
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.

David Coton was recently invited to the exclusive launch of Grange's new products for 2018, the result of significant investment that the garden structures and fencing firm have received from their Polish parent company.
David Coton suggests that there are plenty of gardening jobs that need to be done in November, from why you shouldn't throw away your fallen leaves to how to take care of your vegetable patch.
In October, David Coton is getting the garden prepared for the onset of colder weather but, at the same time, the arrival of spring bulbs in the garden centre is a reminder that you should also now be planning ahead for next year.
At GLEE this year David Coton visited the VegTrug stand to find out how their specially designed space saving planters can encourage us to grow more of our own food without the use of pesticides.
