With security very much in mind, Asgard manufacture heavy duty metal storage units for garden equipment, bikes, motor cycles and many other items that need to be kept out of the reach of thieves. David Coton reviews their impressive range which is all designed and built in the UK.
Made from polyester powder coated heavy gauge galvanised steel in a choice of three colours, Asgard products are rust resistant, weatherproof and come with a ten year warranty.
The range of Flexistores might well be the answer if you want a traditionally styled apex roof garden shed, there are three sizes each offering spacious interiors, three point door locking and integral ventilation. The Asgard Compact will fit into anyone's garden, on a balcony, or in a similar small space, and will accommodate a large number and variety of tools and domestic items. Larger and wider, the Vangard is also easily accessed through double doors, and the Access has an opening top that is gas assisted for convenience and is supplied with two discus padlocks. An Annexe garden shed has additional security features including double folded joints to withstand forced entry and door surrounds that will resist a crowbar, while the impressive Centurion, Securestore and Trojan sheds have proved popular with sports clubs and schools due to their strength and large capacity.
There are several Asgard bike stores approved by both the police and insurance companies. They have a secure deadbolt locking system and boast reinforced steel panels. Horizontal or vertical to save space, there are single and twin bike lockers and another that is double ended which is ideal to be located at the side of a house. These units can be bolted to the ground with supplied securing anchors and, if you have a holiday home, the fire and water resistant Addition bike store is specifically designed to sit under your caravan windows. There's even an E-Bike Store which is fitted with a mounting plate for electrical sockets so that your bike can be charged while safe inside.
Again with heavy duty galvanized steel panels and built-in metal floor, security is provided by a robust 5 point locking system approved by the police and locksmiths. Asgard's two dedicated motorcycle garages have large double doors and include a ramp as standard. There's plenty of room to work on your bike, a mounting plate for electrical sockets, shelving for tools and a hook rail for your helmet and clothing. A unique slotted side vent system allows exhaust fumes to escape and plywood flooring helps to prevent tyre damage.
If you need to store gas bottles, the three Asgas Bottle Stores will neatly secure them. Designed with the assistance of Calor Gas, they have a utility company style lock which allows suppliers to quickly change empty canisters. A ramp gives easy access, there's a rear rail that will anchor bottles internally and the lift up top allows you to inspect the regulator.
