Why Choose a Saffron (aka DuraMax) Shed?
Being around since the 1980s, and originally known as DuraMax, the people behind Saffron have over 35 years of experience when it comes to sheds, that’s why they’ve fast become a popular brand within the UK for those looking for a durable shed to match their garden.
Saffron Metal Sheds
A key feature about every product within the Saffron metal shed range is that each steel panel has been galvanised and hot-dipped, which means it has multiple layers of protective coating painted on top, including a natural green or modern anthracite black colour finish. This coating is what makes the shed virtually maintenance free as it won’t fade, discolour, chip, crack, peel, warp, rot or rust, plus, you’ll never need to treat, paint or stain the shed as you would with a wooden variety.
To prove just how effective and durable Saffron have designed their metal sheds to be, a 10-year manufacturer’s guarantee is offered as standard, highlighting the quality and belief that Saffron has in their own range.
Saffron Plastic Sheds
So the Saffron plastic shed range appeals to you more over their metal variety? That’s not surprising as the clean lines coupled with their fire retardancy properties make them a very attractive proposition for garden storage. The strong metal frame that is incorporated in the structure adds to the rigidity which is further enhanced with the thickness and quality of the PVC that is used as the cladding. Most models have double doors and either an integral floor or a Foundation Kit.
You will know what size best suits your needs and you will also have a budget in mind so all I really need to do is outline the difference between the different models. Unfortunately, the names only add to the confusion with Saffron, Woodbridge and Woodside all in the mix to make sense of?
The first to arrive within the plastic range was the 8ft x 6ft Saffron. In essence, the ‘Mate’ refers to their principal range that features sheds that are 6ft wide at the apex, where the double doors are fitted. The DuraMate 8ft x 8ft and 8ft x 10ft are essentially the same shed but 8ft and 13ft deep, respectively.
Next onto the UK market was the little 4ft x 8ft Saffron, cleverly named to sit nicely alongside the Saffron range the SideMate is ideal for a side entry, or against a wall. It is a Lean-To shed that has a door that can be fitted at either end for maximum flexibility.
Then it was time to manufacture a 10ft wide shed at the apex, and here there was plenty of room to add the customary double doors. They might have called it WideMate (you can see why I don’t work in an advertising agency) but instead opted for Woodbridge. I don’t know the reasoning or sense for this but it is an attractive name nonetheless. Maybe they thought it would appeal to the UK buyers better.
Now all sizes were covered, except maybe a small size for small backyards, as the Americans like to call it. Along came Little Hut, originally in two sizes but now only offered in the 5ft x 3ft option. This too features double doors and has its own integral floor.
Finally, a two-tone wood effect option that mixes different widths and different sizes. Hence the name Woodside which is a great looking shed but with more kerb appeal built in.
