When it comes to garden sheds, Plastic is the new Wood

Posted: May 10th, 2013

Essex Trade Windows web partners, SM Garden Sheds, have long been an advocate of plastic and PVC garden storage products. With everything from plastic garden storage boxes to PVC garages available through their on-line catalogue, SM Garden Sheds have found plastics and PVC to be a versatile, robust and practical material.

It needs to be stressed that SM Garden Sheds also carry an extensive range of timber garden buildings and metal sheds and garages but their latest line in garden sheds is a plastic product that is proving very popular.

Lifetime Heavy Duty Plastic Garden Sheds are built to last. Manufactured from high density polyethylene (HDPE), Lifetime sheds are exceptionally low maintenance and are UV-protected to resist fading and cracking. Lifetime garden sheds feature powder coated steel reinforcements and a pitched apex roof for efficient drainage. With double opening, pad-lockable hinge doors and a unique button catch opening mechanism, these plastic sheds are the perfect garden storage product.

Modern plastics like HDPE are 100% recyclable and do not create harmful emissions during production. Lifetime’s powder-coated finish makes these plastic sheds resistant to chips, scratches, and wear-and-tear. Powder-coating prevents rusting, corrosion and protects steel parts from UV-damage, making it a great all-weather finish.

PVC and plastic sheds from SM Garden Sheds come in a range of sizes and designs from the 5′ x 3′ ‘Little Hut’ to the accommodating 10′ x 13′ Woodbridge plastic shed.
