The floor of the steel garden shed is made of 18mm plywood (¾ of an inch) sourced from a legally and sustainable forest (PEFC). The timber is screwed on to the supporting steel runners, described above, to give a clean firm finish. The timber is not touching the base, clay or concrete, so it is not subject to dampness induced rotting.
The standard shed has a PVC double glassed window on the front gable. In the standard 8 or 10 foot sheds half of the window opens. Extra windows can be fitted on the side or back if required.
The roof cladding is treated with an anti-condensation membrane to prevent dripping in cold conditions. Condensation occurs as the temperature falls and the air cannot maintain the same level of humidity. The condensation develops on the coldest surface in this case the roof. The anti-condensation non woven felt fabric absorbs the moisture to prevent dripping. The moisture will evaporate naturally as temperatures rise the following day.
