How much does your shed weigh?

With weight comes security and durability and that is why weight is an important factor of our Asgard metal sheds. Our sheds are made with thick galvanised steel which helps makes them strong, supportive and weatherproof, this also means that even our smaller Garden sheds can weigh up to 15 stone.

Do you know how much your Asgard Shed weighs?



Weight is measured in many different ways and usually we use two weight measurements; Kilograms and Stone. Our metal storage sheds are also measured in our weight category rating, the Asgard sheds are graded in categories 1 - 6 and even our category 1 sheds are extremely heavy which is a small part of what makes our Garden sheds and Bike storage so strong.
