As an excellent alternative to conventional products, Trimetals' storage solutions blend top quality manufacture with contemporary style. Their range has now been extended to include two new maintenance free sheds and Robert Hall has all the details.
You are probably familiar with Trimetals' sheds and cabinets that cater for bikes, motorcycles, mobility scooters, even gas cylinders, as well as boxes that are ideal for caravan sites and patios.
Benefiting from Japanese design and engineering, all three are ideal for anyone looking for safe and secure storage. They are precision made using Galvalume, smoother than galvanized steel but with the same corrosion-resistant qualities, and key features include a reinforced integral floor and a key operated lock.
At just over 6ft tall with a compact base, Guardian sheds will enhance any location. They are weatherproof and fire-resistant, and their styling is complemented by a very durable polyester painted two-tone finish which has a ten-year guarantee against rust perforation.
As with other Trimetal sheds, the assembly is straightforward and shouldn't take more than one hour. You'll then be able to fully appreciate easy access through the D33's single hinged door or the smooth sliding doors of the larger models.
Inside there are two strong metal shelves fitted as standard, and up to four extra ones can be added. So everything in a Guardian shed can be efficiently organized whether these are cushions, children's toys, sports gear or larger items, even bicycles.
Considering their attractive appearance and well thought out design, it seems to me that these new Trimetals' Guardian sheds will prove a very useful addition to anyone's garden, patio or outside space whatever the size, providing contemporary long-term storage for all your garden and leisure items.
