Description

A dip treated, apex shed offering you great value for a superior build, the Windowless 4x3 Kielder Shed is part of Forest's Garden's innovative shed range: The Better Shed. The Better Shed is stronger, easier to build and boasts adaptable features designed to offer the best shed for you and your garden.

The Kielder has sturdy 7mm straight-cut overlap cladding which allows for natural timber movement in changing weather conditions and is supported by a 28x28 frame. As with all of The Better Shed range, the Kielder is modular. With smaller panels, there is more framing than in standard sheds, resulting in a much stronger build. The modular design also means the panels are less prone to warping. Joins in the modular construction are protected by outer weather covering strips to prevent any water ingress.

All of this small shed's timber has been dip treated to offer a 10 year guarantee against rot and fungal decay when supported by annual retreatment.

While most sheds come with an OSB floor as standard, this garden shed features a super 14mm boarded timber floor. Far superior to OSB flooring, this wooden floor is built to withstand storage of your heavier items as well as years of footfall. The floor is further strengthened by pressure treated bearers.

The roof is made from 8mm OSB and covered in a durable roof felt. Felt colour may vary. Reflecting the high quality of this shed, the roof is finished with smooth planed barge boards and a decorative finial.

You can rest assured that your stored contents will be secure. The single door of this shed features Z-bracing for increased strength while the hidden hinges cannot be tampered with from the outside. The door is fitted with a hasp and staple closure, ready for you to add a padlock (padlock not included). The single door can be left or right hand opening.

For further security, the shed is windowless - making it an ideal security shed.

This garden shed has been manufactured in the UK from UK-grown FSC-certified timber.

Instructions for a straightforward self-assembly are included or you can leave it to the experts and opt for our installation upgrade. This shed should only be built on a level, hard surface and ideally placed on a shed base.

Free delivery to most UK postcodes.

All boast a timber floor, 15% more framing and are easier to build. Whichever you choose, you can be sure you've chosen The Better Shed.

Why choose a Forest Kielder Shed?

When you buy a new shed, you want to invest in a shed that is robust, durable and practical. Forest Dip Treated sheds offer you all this along with great value for money.

Forest branded dip treated sheds have a number of features to ensure maximum durability and strength including boarded wooden floors, security door hinges, extra framing and so much more.

The best overlap sheds we've ever made

FLEXIBILE WINDOWS

Same size panels are interchangeable - you can choose the window placement to suit your garden allowing flexibility for your garden design.

FLEXIBLE DOORS

Doors can be positioned to the left or right of the shed. Single doors can be hung to be left- or right-hand opening.

  • treatment

    Dip treatment coats the timber in a preservative which protects the wood from rot and fungal decay. When supported by annual applications, this treatment provides at least a decade of protection.

  • floor

    Strong 14mm pressure-treated boarded timber floor. This wooden floor is built to withstand storage of heavier items as well as years of footfall. The floor is further strengthened by pressure treated bearers. A timber floor is far superior to the OSB that comes with standard sheds.

  • extra strength

    The design of our sheds features more extensive framing than standard sheds. This results in a more robust build. Larger apex models also feature a metal truss bracket that adds further strength to the roof and ensures best alignment.

  • cladding

    Straight edge overlap cladding provides consistency and strength as well as providing the traditional style we all know and love. The high-quality cladding means the panels are less likely to warp or develop gaps.

  • windows

    Our windows are glazed with shatterproof PET glazing, made from recycled materials, which will not yellow or become brittle over time. PET is more robust than the styrene used in standard sheds.

  • doors

    Our doors feature double Z bracing for extra strength, security and to prevent the doors dropping. This is superior to the basic ledge bracing on standard sheds. Our doors are also fitted with hidden security hinges and a padlock-ready hasp and staple.

Comes with a 10 year anti-rot guarantee.

Dip Treatment. Boards are dipped in anti-fungal solution.

Smaller sections make transportation and handling easy.

Quick and easy construction.

Dip Treatment Process Explained

Dip treatment is a tried and tested method of applying wood preservative to timber products, and the process is fairly straightforward. First, the timber is dipped into a cylinder containing a powerful wood preservative. The preservative is then absorbed into the surface of the timber and, after it's removed and left to dry, it will be thoroughly protected it against both rot and fungal decay.

After the dip treatment process is completed, the timber will have a lovely orangey-brown hue, ensuring it will become an attractive feature of your garden, as well as complementing most fence panels. Of course, you can choose to stain your dip treated shed another colour upon assembly. If you're interested in an affordable, practical, and sturdy dip treated shed, why not take a look at our featured products below?
