Shed Base Option

Plastic Shed Base

Plastic Shed Base Kit

Quick and simple to install, the 8x6 plastic shed base kit is ideal for avoiding the hassle of laying slabs or concrete when preparing a base for a new shed. Its interlocking design makes it easy to put together and, though lightweight, it provides a very strong and durable base for the shed. Made from 100% recycled plastic, this shed base is eco-friendly. Also, it can be reused if the shed is repositioned. The base allows for ventilation and drainage under the shed, helping to keep the shed floor dry.

To install the base, simply interlock the square grids together and lay onto a firm, level area of ground. We recommend using 15kg of 10mm pea gravel per square (gravel not included). Each square is 500 x 500 x 50mm. This pack contains 20 squares and heavy-duty, commercially-graded weed membrane.

Why choose a Premium Tongue & Groove Shed?

For a premium shed with a build you can trust, choose a tongue and groove shed. With their weathertight interlocking construction and long-lasting pressure treatment, Forest’s tongue & groove sheds provide you with reliable, durable and handsome garden storage. If you can afford a slightly higher initial spend, these premium sheds will save you time and money in the long run.

Premium Tongue and Groove Construction

WELL MADE IN THE UK

The majority of timber we use is from trees grown in sustainable forests in the UK.

ASSEMBLY SERVICE AVAILABLE

Our assembly service is available on selected products. Take a look at the options when purchasing your shed.

  • treatment

    More effective than the surface coating provided by dip treatment, pressure treatment forces preservative deep inside the timber. This results in 15 years of anti-rot protection WITHOUT the need to re-treat. This will save you around £200 in money and time.

  • floor

    Far superior to OSB flooring which can sag, a tongue & groove floor will withstand years of heavy storage and footfall. The wooden floor provides greater support for the building and has a much more attractive finish.

  • extra security

    Increased security is provided by a key-operated rim lock and hidden hinges, providing safety for the shed’s contents and peace of mind for you.

  • cladding

    Boasting a premium tongue & groove construction, this shed features 12mm tongue & groove boards which interlock to create a sleek, weathertight finish that is robust, durable and handsome. The tight construction also resists warping.

  • windows

    Providing ventilation and light for a pleasant working and storage space, the opening windows are shatterproof and secured with high-quality latches. To suit your garden, the windows can be placed on either side of the apex models.

  • doors

    Stronger and more secure than the basic ledge-braced doors on standard sheds, these doors are reinforced with double Z bracing. This higher quality build also makes them less likely to drop or warp.

Comes with a 15 year anti-rot guarantee.

Pressure Treatment. No need for annual re treatment.

Smaller sections make transportation and handling easy.

Made in the UK.

Pressure Treatment Process Explained

The Pressure Treatment process for timber has been applied to products for a number of years; the key benefit of this process is that the preservative is forced under vacuum pressure right deep into the heart of the wood and the grain structure. The preservative becomes an integral part of the wood; giving a long life and protection against rot.

This process also means that you never have to apply preservatives to your garden shed, and it allows the natural colours of the timber to show through and so your shed blends easily within your garden. Surprisingly, our Pressure Treated Sheds are only slightly more expensive than our Dip Treated Sheds.

step 1 Vacuum

Timber is loaded into chamber and a vacuum empties timber cells of air.

step 1 Flooded

Cylinder is flooded under vacuum with preservative.

step 1 Pressure

Preservative is forced deep into timber using hydraulic pressure.

step 1 Vacuum

Another vacuum extracts excess preservative.

step 1 Dry

Timber draws in surface excess of preservative under low pressure, then is left to dry.

NO NEED TO RE-TREAT - SAVING YOU TIME AND MONEY!
