Q5. Are Absco Sheds suited to high wind areas?

A: Most Absco sheds are rated W41C (C1) to withstand winds up to 91mi/hr. Cyclone Kits are available for some models that when fitted. When installed the product is rated to W50 (C2) & can withstand up to 111mi/hr.

Q6. The predrilled holes do not align?

A: In some cases the pre drilled holes may not align up on your shed panels. To rectify this, use the screws provided and insert the screw at an angle and tighten. This will re-align the holes and allow the panels to screw together as instructed.

Q7. What is the installation difference between Premier & Regent Ridge Beam?

A: When installing the ridge beam to Regent and Premier Sheds, please note that both screw holes in the ridge beam aren’t required. The Regent Shed uses the inner most holes, whereas the Premier uses the outermost holes. When it comes time to fit the gable pieces onto your Regent and Premier sheds it is important to note two different approaches. For a Regent Shed the gable piece screws directly into the ridge beam, whereas the Premier Shed gable screws through the peak brace.

Q8. How do I install the gable brace?

A: Firstly, install the gable brace to the wall then install to the ridge beam. Please be aware if there is no hole present – pre drilling is required for this component.

Q11. Does my shed come with a floor?

Q12. Does my shed come with fixtures to bolt to a concrete slab?

A: No, Anchorset is an optional accessory which includes bolts and nuts to secure your shed to the concrete slab.

Q13. Do I need to bolt my shed to the ground?

A: Yes, all sheds need to be secured to a concrete slab, timber floor or some solid structure.

Q14. How can I make my shed water proof?

A: Extreme weather conditions make it difficult to keep water from entering the shed through gaps, doorways and entries. Best way to prevent this from happening is to rebate your concrete slab and use rubber seals which can be purchased from your local hardware store. The use of silicon around the base of the shed and in the channel system may increase the chances of water being trapped inside your shed.

The majority of the shed will require a Drill/ Drill bits (3mm/4mm) /screw driver/ ladder/ pop rivet gun. Gloves, eye protection, boots and work stools if possible to make construction easier.
