Description

This 6' wide by 8' deep Palram Skylight Shed offers ample space for storing gardening tools and essentials.

The Skylight range boasts the use of lightweight yet highly durable materials, making installation as easy as possible but with protection against harsh weather conditions, rot, rust and UV rays.

Its main frame structure is crafted from aluminium, while the outer panels are constructed of polycarbonate - a long lasting and strong material which is classed as 'virtually unbreakable' by Palram. The convenient slide and lock panelling system aids quicker installation when compared to other brands and it can also be moved and relocated as and when needed in the future.

A specially designed roof allows sunlight to illuminate the inside of your shed with a soft natural light as the rays pass through the top. Vents on the front and back allow air to circulate and minimizes condensation.

To top it off, a floor is also included with an anti-slip design, making it a safer environment for moving in and out with ease.

Overall pretty good - excellent customer service

First the bad bit; our shed arrived minus some major parts. The good news is that the customer service was great, and the missing parts were despatched immediately. To be fair the missing parts were a manufacturer problem, as it was clear that the package was intact, so the supplier would have had no way of knowing the parts were missing. As others have said this is DEFINITELY a two person job, and do not attempt to install it if there's any wind blowing. The plastic parts are a heck of a lot tougher than they first look though, and once assembled with the aluminium supports the shed is robust enough. I've previously built both a timber and a metal shed, and would say that assembling this is on a par with a timber shed, but with much lighter components. The metal shed I assembled has literally hundreds of screws, nuts and bolts, and was tedious to put together. The captive bolt and nut system this shed uses makes it very easy to screw parts together, and I found that all the parts were very accurately sized, making it easy to get the shed dead square as long as the base is flat and square. The shaded light through the roof panels is a definite plus, and allows a surprising amount of light in. Clearly this is not as secure a shed as some other types, so if you live in a high crime area I'd perhaps look at something more sturdy, although having said that it's hard to find any shed that's robust enough to keep a determined thief out of. Overall, if you're looking for a maintenance free, lightweight, fairly easy to erect shed, then I'd recommend this model. The 8ft x 4ft version seems plenty large enough, and if you wanted to add some shelves, a bit of foresight when assembling the walls, and dropping some of the spare captive bolts down the slots in the wall extrusions would make fitting shelf brackets, or even a wall board for fitting tool hooks, easy.

Had to replace all screws with nuts and bolts, I can't believe sheds (at this price) still come with screws as standard

As previously stated, I can't believe that such a large shed arrived in a small, lightweight box. In addition, like other reviews have said, please don't attempt to build in windy conditions. Me and my 16 year old daughter managed to erect it in about 6 hours. It was very easy to assemble and came with clear instructions. My only gripe is that the shed came with screws and not nuts and bolts for security reasons.

Was worried at first flimsy and definately at least a two person job

Purchased this item to replace a rotting wooden one. Not easy to put together as sides are flimsy until put together as a whole. Sides are a little out and can't shut doors properly yet but will try to resolve

A good shed

Very flimsy panels until the frame is fitted. With two people it was a little difficult when the wind gusted. One incorrect side panel was delivered, but not discovered until the shed was fully assembled. It was noticed that the averlap lines were not in line with the rest on that side.

Stronger than at first thought

I was suspicious that this would be a flimsy but took a chance and ordered it so I can use it for storage this autumn. After spending a few hours putting it up, (the instructions were easy to understand but I'm a bit slow and it might be better to bribe a friend to help), my suspicions were unfounded as it is very robust, we'll see how it does if we have any gales but I'm pretty certain it will be up to the task.

No Fuss and No Maintenance

Hang in with this shed as the inherent strength is not obvious until it is fully installed. I love the fact it's virtually indestructible and the autumnal colouring suits. And hopefully no maintenance either which is a real bonus :- )

Rigid and waterproof. Good value shed.

The shed arrived on the due date. Could not believe that all the parts were in such a flat box but they were. Each part is numbered and 2 of us completed the task in 5 hours without rushing. After a torrential rain storm there were no leaks so I am very pleased. Quite rigid once finished and very light inside with the skylight roof.

Flimsy but fortified shed...........so far!

OMG this is sooooooo Flimsy! You will think that it will never be strong enough to support itself. Took 4 hrs with 2 people to erect with no problems. DO NOT ATTEMPT on a windy day unless you have lots of pairs of hands to hold panels. As you put the metal struts to link up with the panels this then gives strength to the structure. Really looks good in our garden and hopefully no maintenance for 10 years.So far so good, have had some rain and when checked no leaks, but we did use sealant everywhere. Only gave 4 stars as only been up 2 weeks. Will give another review in about 6-8 months to see if its worth 5 stars.

Peter Spencer Asked:

Do you sell a suitable base for your plastic sheds?

We Replied:

Dear Peter Thank you for your question. The Palram Skylight shed range comes complete with a floor and anchoring bolts ready to bolt the shed to a stable hard area. We do sell a range of pressure treated wooden base frame kits with metal spikes which allow you to install the base frame into the ground with the supplied spikes and then erect the shed on top. These can be found from following this link: /Timber_Shed_Bases/ Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701.

David Allan. Asked:

This shed looks just the job! 1. How long realistically will it take to erect? 2. I live in the north west of England, how long after purchase would delivery be and would someone need to be here to sign for it? 3. Is the 6 X 8 Palram in stock?

We Replied:

Dear David Thank you for your questions. 1. We would recommend at least two people with an estimated installation time of around 4-5 hours, however this could be less or more depending on experience. You may see the instructions beforehand by viewing this link in your browser which may give you a better idea: /pdfs/7c230b807d2a1459b21f03076cfb8875.pdf 2. Delivery is normally within 5 working days to mainland England, and slightly longer to parts of Scotland (please see the delivery options on the product page to see where we deliver to if you are not within mainland England). And yes, the package(s) would need to be signed for when delivered. 3. At this time of writing, we do have this shed available and in stock. I hope that this information helps. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please don't hesitate to reply to this answer via email or call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Andy.

Ray Wigzell Asked:

The roof sections seem to slide in. I want to erect the shed in a corner with one side beside a garden 6ft fence how can I assemble the roof on that side?

We Replied:

Dear Ray Thank you for your question. We would normally recommend a 3ft space around each side of the shed in order to make installing it as easy as possible and to give you access to the roof to fix the panels. If you don't have this space, you could potentially attempt to install it in a nearby location, and then using the help of 4 people, lift the shed up from each corner and carry it to its desired location, before bolting it down to the ground. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren
