Requesting a greenhouse without glass is one of the more unusual inquiries that our Marketing Department has received, but it was all in the cause of art and we were pleased to help out local designer Julian Bull create his latest installation.
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. Now two new sheds are being added to their range - the 'Guardian D33' and 'Guardian D43' that join the 'Guardian D63'.
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.

Gardening really is good for you. Whether this is backed up by research findings or a fact that you intuitively know is true, there's no doubt that even only a few hours a week in the garden is beneficial for both mind and body.
Borderstone's impressive range of ornamental stoneware has always proved popular on GardenSite, and partners David Coton and Andrew Hall recently paid a visit to their manufacturing and distribution base in Nottinghamshire.
After the recent record breaking spell of hot weather, David Coton was glad to see recent rain freshening up the Garden Centre, but the sweltering heat is set to continue and he has these suggestions for some of the jobs that need to be done in the garden during August.
