Grosfillex PVC Sheds & Summerhouses
Strangely enough, the lack of a built-in floor benefits a Grosfillex shed, they are purposely designed without due to their diverse usage potential enhanced by customizable features to aid creating one’s own divine personal out-of-the-home retreat.
A thickset heavy-duty resin floor common on all quality plastic sheds isn’t particularly suited for living accommodation. Grosfillex prefer you to fit your own choice of flooring dependant on your accommodation desires and services required.
If traditional shed services are intended then concrete or wood decking provide and ideal base however if preferences are to design an outdoor kitchen dining summerhouse situated within a BBQ area or serving as a beach hut for swimming services etc, a floor laid with attractive easily-cleaned non-slip floor tiles make sense.
If however, intentions are to create a home-office, games room, art studio or design your own garden’s most luxurious hideaway retreat isolated from home-life’s busy surroundings, then perhaps desirable wood-flooring or stylish floor-tiles to match one’s decor and seating fabric determines requirements.
There’s a one-step ruling required in preparing the perfect resin shed or summerhouse foundations, its making sure they are solid and level.
A level base eases the assembly process dramatically as the facade panels and doors align with ease plus the perpendicular shed stance averts leaning stresses to one side of the shed generating a flawless construction. Grosfillex advise to lay concrete foundations at least 10 cm thick for the larger sized models, thus further increasing their stability.
Many Grosfillex summerhouse assemblers increase their foundations area around the outer perimeter of the shed especially in-front of the doors opening, creating a decked or patio area for seating outside their summerhouse frontage delivering the best of both worlds regarding indoor/outdoor seating accommodation.
Grosfillex Construction and Composition
Constructing a Grosfillex shed regards securing the metal-rail base perimeter trim to the corner posts whilst anchoring them down onto the solid level foundations. The PVC sheets simply slot, slide and secure into the vertical metal framework, a series of steel struts which secure into the base perimeter down below and metal roof infrastructure up above producing overall rigidity to the final construction.
Recommendations regarding exposure to high winds relate to strengthening the shed’s anchorage system by virtue of an additional anchoring kit, a straightforward installation regarding a series of steel cables consisting of clamps, links and tensioners that inconspicuously secure the anchorage within the corners on the shed.
Each PVC sheet encompasses a dual walled resin lining equating to 26 mm thick panels, each consisting of a grooved edging conformation enabling a straightforward slot-into-place assembly procedure whist securing with the vertical struts and adjoining facade panels delivers their rigidity.
The PVC’s resin mix and molding procedure creates a semblance of horizontal or vertical wood panelling dependant on shed model whilst new design techniques regarding heliographic printing processes exhibit a textured grain effect throughout their wonderful summery pastel and deep tinted shades. Blended within the resin mix regards a UV stabilisation process, defending the colours from fading and surface-cracking when sunburn rays attack, resisting the demise in appearance bleaching effect endures.
The beauty associated with a PVC manufacture relates to their virtually maintenance-free benefits. A light spray-hose down with water or mild detergent mixed with warm water and scrubbed with a soft brush regards their simplistic cleaning ability. Their whirlwind wash generally takes minutes to reinstate Grosfillex’s wondrous looks.
PVC is resistant to weather decay, whether stood in blazing hot sunshine, downpours of rain or an abundance of heavy snowfall Grosfillex make-up is immune from deterioration and rotting therefore cost effective, requiring no future re-painting or re-varnishing conservation duties whilst their PVC manufacture is 99% recyclable delivering near perfect environmentally friendly credentials.
Peace of mind regarding serviceability, construction and manufacture is delivered by a 10 years Grosfillex limited warranty guarantee.
Grosfillex Roof Structure
All sheds and summerhouses within the Grosfillex range have an impressive roof structure, a nice angled pitch delivers an effective yet immediate rainwater drainage system whilst the lavish overhang the roof has extending beyond the facade averts any possibility of rainfall entering in where the walls adjoin.
The roof’s manufacture regards twin lined PVC panels similar to the wall’s make-up. Each roof sheet secures around a metal framework that’s further reinforced by a central ridge beam running across the internal section of the apex peak in addition to robust triangular supports securing the front & back fascias to the roof panels and roof ridge providing overall well bolstered support.
The same resistance to weather decay advantages the walls possess equate to the roof panels. Unlike the quick demise in structural format roofing felt succumbs to when affected by damp conditions, PVC is not affected by cold, heat or wet conditions. Grosfillex sheds and summerhouses immunity from weather deterioration delivers the requirement we’re all searching for nowadays, no future re-roofing projects.
Customising Your Personal Space
Once the foundations are prepared, your choice of flooring is laid and the shed is assembled, customising the interior relates to either turning it into a home office space, a peaceful art studio, a luxurious she-shed space deigned into the perfect escape route away from busy home-life surroundings, maybe a games room for the kids, a man-cave for the grown up kids, a dining kitchen to assist BBQ services or simply the traditional services a utility shed harbours such as gardening equipment and outdoor gear.
Stacking boxes, stand-alone shelving or office shelving units suit a whole host of storage services to accommodate requirements. Hanging items on the walls is also catered for with the Grosfillex Mounting Kit. Each kit contains six sections that secure within the vertical metal struts supporting the wall panels. Whether shelving is required or hooks to accommodate tall items like long handled gardening tools & coats etc or wishes are to hang pictures to customise your own personal space, screws can be screwed in to accomplish all these tasks.
Sturdy doors open into all Grosfillex sheds, they all contain windows in different styles dependant on the model of shed to allow daylight to bask the interior. Like home-from-home a traditional handle operates their opening mechanism whilst a key locks the doors providing security when unoccupied.
Grosfillex sheds vary whether windows are incorporated into the facade. Utility sheds are absent from windows in the facade to increase their storage potential for gardening services and outdoor equipment etc. On the other hand, if the popular services regarding a chalet dwelling, summerhouse, home-office, art studio or games room situated at the bottom of the garden, additional integrated windows in the shed facade illuminate daylight to the interior whilst dependant on shed model, some windows have an opening feature to deliver fresh air.
Air-vents are built-in to the internal sections of the facade in several places. Generating fresh air current they eliminate any notion of a sweaty plastic environment whilst eradicating problems relating to condensation building up and dripping on the inside, a particular problem inherent with metal sheds. Rather a fresh ambience is created through the well ventilated Grosfillex sheds and summerhouses, aiding to deliver a pleasurable internal environment to your private space.
Grosfillex PVC sheds and summerhouses incorporate a slightly different roof design in comparison to the majority of quality plastic sheds containing their steel truss systems and translucent skylight strip embedded within the apex roof ridge.
With intentions to create the perfect unobtrusive expanse of summerhouse ceiling height delivering a more light and airy feel, rather than being obstructed with steel beams stretching out across the apex width, the main roof support regards their roof ridge to where the roof framework adjoins hence Grosfillex sheds are absent from a skylight. Instead, larger more homely windows built into the facade and windows in the doors deliver an abundance of daylight to the interior. A wonderful homely design feature.
