An Apex Shed is a quintessential feature in many British gardens, offering a blend of practicality and aesthetic appeal. There are a myriad of benefits associated with the Apex roof shed style. So let’s take a look at what an Apex shed can offer you.

Functional Benefits

  1. Maximised Space and Storage: One of the primary benefits of an Apex Shed is the maximisation of space and storage capabilities. The unique design, characterised by two sloping sides that meet at the highest point, creates a spacious interior. This additional height not only offers more headroom but also allows for the storage of taller items, making it an ideal solution for storing garden tools, bicycles and ladders. The design also allows the installation of shelves and hooks, further enhancing its storage capabilities.
  2. Durability and Longevity: Our Apex Sheds are constructed from Tanalised timber, which offers durability and longevity. Tanalised timber undergoes a preservative process, where wood is treated with Tanalith E, a water-based wood preservative. This treatment helps protect the shed against fungal decay and insect attack, ensuring that your Apex Shed remains a lasting fixture in your garden.
  3. Weather Resistance: The distinctive roof design of an Apex Shed offers excellent resistance to various weather conditions. The apex roof allows rainwater to run off easily, reducing the risk of water pooling and seepage, which can lead to wood rot and decay. This feature is particularly beneficial in Britain’s often unpredictable weather, providing peace of mind that the shed’s contents are protected.
  4. Extra Height and Comfort: The extra height provided by an Apex Shed is beneficial for storage and adds an element of comfort for the user. The increased headroom makes moving around inside the shed more comfortable, especially for taller individuals. This extra space can be particularly appreciated when engaging in tasks that require standing for prolonged periods, such as potting plants or working on DIY projects.

Environmental Benefits

  1. Eco-Friendly Material: The use of Tanalised timber in constructing Apex Sheds also has significant environmental benefits. Tanalised timber is a more eco-friendly option compared to other treated woods, as the Tanalith E preservative is free from heavy metals and other harmful chemicals. This makes the shed more environmentally friendly and safer for both humans and wildlife.
  2. Longevity Reduces Environmental Impact: The durability and longevity of an Apex Shed, owing to the Tanalised timber, also contribute to its environmental friendliness. A longer-lasting shed means less frequent replacements, thereby reducing the demand for raw materials and the associated environmental impact of manufacturing and transporting new sheds.
  3. Resistance to Insects and Rot: The enhanced resistance of Tanalised timber to insects and rot not only extends the life of the Apex Shed but also reduces the need for chemical treatments over its lifespan. This aspect further underscores the environmentally friendly nature of these sheds, as it minimises the introduction of harmful chemicals into the garden environment.

In conclusion, the Apex Shed is a versatile and practical addition to any garden. Its unique design maximises space and storage, while the use of Tanalised timber ensures durability, longevity, and resistance to weather elements. Moreover, the environmental benefits of Tanalised timber, such as its eco-friendliness and reduced need for chemical treatments, make Apex Sheds a sustainable choice. Whether for storage, a workspace, or simply as an attractive garden feature, an Apex Shed offers a multitude of benefits that cater to both practical needs and environmental considerations.
