John Kandel and Robert Hall with the new Lotus Wheelie Bin Store

As the days march past ever more quickly I find it’s time to return again to our annual trade exhibition GLEE at the NEC. Never a company to let the grass grow under their feet I visited the StoreMore stand to see what was new for the season ahead. And the answer is plenty!

John Kandel took the time to firstly introduce me to the new Lotus Wheelie Bin store finished in their new Anthracite Grey. There are plenty of Wheelie Bin Stores available in wood but this version is in metal, as is the rest of this range of sheds and stores.

Double or Triple Wheelie Bin Store?

Choose from the Lotus Double Bin Store or Lotus Triple Bin Store which hold 2 and 3 of the 240 litre bins respectively. Strong, durable, rot and rodent proof, these high quality metal bin stores not only look smart and are long lasting but also are great value for money. They exhibit the heaviest gauge, hot dipped galvanized steel in this category and are an innovative design with fewer parts and quicker assembly. This range is renowned for being progressive in producing a product that is more consumer friendly in its design, assembly, and functionality. 

The top lid is hinged for easy access to dispose of your rubbish and recycling but they have a wide access front double door that is complete with its own easy to use door closure.

New Metal Bicycle Store

The Lotus Bicycle Store is of similar design with all the same positive characteristics of the Bin Store. The Bicycle Store is also finished in Anthracite Grey and at 6ft x 6ft will hold up to 4 bicycles. Again access is easy with the wide opening double doors that are both braced internally.

Additional Sizes and Colours for Apex and Lean-To Shed

The Lotus Shed range is already strong in covering most bases but now the Kandels have added 6x4, 8x5 and 10x7 sizes to the Apex Range finished in Anthracite Grey. Also new is the 5x8 size in the Lean-To Shed range and the 4x6 and 4x8 are now also available in Anthracite Grey.

Big Plans Need Big Solutions

Probably the most exciting new addition, in my opinion, is the Lotus Double Hinged Door Garage. It has a full 2 metre wall height and an apex height of 225cms. The garage comes in a standard 10ft width and is available in 15ft, 17ft or 19ft lengths. The Anthracite Grey really makes this garage look substantial as well as it being very solid. Easy vehicle access is obviously important and has been considered here along with integral ventilated gables and a limited 15 year Manufacturer's Warranty which all Lotus products have as standard.

Accompanying the Garage is an equally impressive Hinged Door Workshop with Pent style roof. It shares the same 2 metre wall height and the same 250cms overall height of the Garage. Again this is available in 15ft, 17ft and 19ft lengths. If you really need to get stuck into a job and need the space to work as well as to store your tools this unit has to be a major contender. Again finished in a very modern Anthracite Grey which is easy on the eye and stylish too.

John tells me that these new products will be available from November 2018 to the UK market and we look forward to adding these to GardenSite.
