The 5 x 7 ft Flexistore represents one of many walk-in heavy duty steel sheds engineered by Asgard. A construction weight of 184 kg defines the thickness of the substantial steel-gauge meanwhile collaborating with Crime Prevention Authorities and the Steel Industry assist in producing significantly secure storehouses.
Flexistore 5 x 7 ft Shed
3 colour schemes along with brown & ivory conclude Flexistore’s guise. In the main, prevalent garden green complements lawn & landscapes and represents the favoured choice meanwhile 5 feet across the frontage expanding 7 ft deep provides a capacity to securely shelter & serve a multitude of gardening equipment, lawn and plant supplies, irrespective of their expense.
Three weatherproof coats backed with 10 years anti-corrosion warranty safeguards the steel to endure 4 season weather-aggression, from persistent rain-showers to the scorch of sunburn not forgetting all the damp atmospheres in between, a variety of conditions that predominantly lead to the sudden downfall and limited life of their competition.
Comparable to a resin composition, maintenance merely involves retaining Flexistore’s stylish charm. Fulfilled by an occasional lickety-split soapy scrub describes their leisurely convenience to upkeep. During the summer months, we periodically unreel the garden hosepipe, clip in the shower adaptor & wash the shed whilst soaking the plants, maintaining’s basic & speedy.
Asgard significantly improve quality of production by limiting delivery solely to the UK market, they do not export. Decreasing carbon pollution sidesteps competing with the worldwide dominance of insubstantial metal shed constructions in favour of producing superlative steel structures that are not purely driven by expenditure.
Inspect Flexistore’s Features
Heavy Duty Weatherproof Steel
Engineered from thick-gauged steel constitutes Flexistore’s make-up to which the 29 stone heavyweight construction comprises wall panels, an apex roof, single door and built-in floor.
Integrating a steel floor is a seldom constituent of the common metal shed yet this pivotal part of Flexistore’s structure significantly enhances break-in protection and delivers storm-force resistance to movement. Subsequent to anchorage, Asgard sheds become close-to immovable.
The overwhelming majority of metal and resin sheds incorporate metal or aluminium frameworks to which their panels secure followed by further reinforcements of steel trusses, girders and beams to bolster roof support whereas Asgard’s substantial steel walls independently provide roof support without requiring additional fortifications.
In the mission to assure long-term resistance against weather assault, a heavy-gauge steel construction far outweighs conventional wood in terms of being unsusceptible to a breakdown of composition however it’s imperative the metal is armoured with a shield of defence to combat rust development.
Reassuring certainty against corrosion Asgard certifies conviction through 10 years of warranty cover, virtue of galvanising the steel in molten zinc followed by treating the covering with iron phosphate prior to finishing with a toughened powder-coat of weatherproof polyester to which the colour pigments are added for display.
Locking-up Assures Ultimate Security
Incorporated into the door locking mechanism regards three-way security. At the side of the access handle a steel-lever engages into a steel-latch in the door architrave meanwhile simultaneously two shoot-bolts engineered from 10mm thick steel bars embed deep into the top & bottom surrounding framework determining top notch safe-style security.
The Locksmiths Association assist Asgard’s key-lock design where Euro Cylinder Locks are fitted to operate the 3-way locking system. Asgard’s pick-proof locks represent a thieves worst nightmare because once the structure’s strained through drilling and attempted break-ins, the lock shears away rendering the facility inaccessible no matter how insistent the challenger becomes.
Not forgetting kids and toy storage, the Flexistore represents child-friendliness on account of the handle being operable from the inside meanwhile a synergy with the Police Force and Steel Industry continually update & advance Asgard’s security conscious designs.
Virtue of precision engineering, vulnerable entry parts are enhanced with double folded steel suchlike where panels adjoin and intruder hot-spots surrounding the doors internal perimeter further to reinforcing corner joints. These designs aid the creation of stringent blockades for crowbar access & prevent forced leverage.
Creating Flexistore’s vault-assured garden storehouse is attained by internally steel-bolting the structure together thereby hiding every constructional screw from being tampered with outside the unit.
Advertised as unique by metal shed standards and a first for my eyes regards Asgard’s integrated heavy-gauged steel floor, entailing the principal part of Flexistore’s structure. The flooring is where the wall panels bolt onto commencing construction and where anchorage is undertaken.
Combining all this security defence together with industrial grade steel results in one weighty secure unit to safeguard expensive gardening equipment. What would move this away from the ground once anchored? – A bulldozer, maybe!
Flexistore’s Effective & Sturdy Features
Flexistore’s roofing constitutes equivalent weight-gauge steel as the walls comprise, impermeable and galvanised further to containing a weatherproof polyester overcoat assures total resistance to variable weather invasions.
An apex arrangement embracing an adequate incline generates instant drainage during cloudbursts and prevents puddle progression meanwhile the steel sheets overlap the walls forming eaves putting an end to rainwater dribbles finding access inside.
Inherently, metal sheds are renowned for producing condensation and saturated walls especially under duress of clammy conditions. Suppressing unhealthy internal atmospheres involves generating an outside air-current to steadily circulate the interior virtue of drilling ventilation holes on opposite sides of the shed up in the roof-eaves to create the free-flow.
The Flexistore incorporates additional steel air-vents above the entrance, accomplished by precision engineering small covered fissures to ascertain the airflow remains constant. Positioning a shed away from shrubbery and leaving motorbikes & equipment suchlike chainsaws to cool down before storing inside benefits maintaining healthy internal environments.
Optionally, a heavy-duty steel ramp can be purchased to sit at the door entrance to assist rolling in weighty lawnmowers, bikes and mobility scooters etc. No fixings are required, the threshold simply slots under the entry and stays in position.
This 5 x 7 ft Flexistore can accommodate up to 12 steel shelves, these can be purchased at any future date. Pre-drilled, they rigidly secure to the walls with steel screws and are capable of supporting hefty gardening gear. Steel hooks in packs of 10 likewise screw into the walls in pre-drilled positions for organising long handled spades, rakes & brushes etc adjacent to the walls meanwhile steel eyelets can also be acquired for fastening bungee cords or ropes to restrain items against the walls.
Purchasing an 18mm thick OSB2 timber floor is worth considering to prevent scratching the metal base during use, attain a more grip-able walkway and subdue internal noise levels. Asgard cut to size this type of flooring to fit the Flexistore and include a metal fixing strip. There’s no complications installing, the timber simply lays into position over the base after anchoring.
Flexistore 5 x 7 ft Measurements
Remarkably Clear-Cut Assembly Process
Foremost importance relates to stationing heavy duty steel sheds on solid levelled ground suchlike patio paving or concrete foundations including materials suchlike asphalt or tarmac etc. Make sure the substrate has a minimum 2″ thickness and is level thereby averting subsidence and a tilt to one side.
Once the foundations are prepared, construction becomes very straightforward as the video demonstrates. Commencing from the base, the wall panels simultaneously bolt to the steel floor & adjacent steel sheets, followed by the roof and door.
Unusually, anchor screws are supplied for driving screws into the substrate to rigidly anchor Flexistore’s base to the ground. This fast-forward video demonstrates the efficiency of an Asgard assembly. On account of cleverly designed precision engineering and heavy-gauge steel, parts are minimal therefore construction’s swift.
