Bolting your Asgard shed to the ground

How to bolt your Asgard metal storage shed to the ground  

All Asgard sheds are strong, secure and heavy, so many customers don’t bolt their unit to the ground.  However, you may wish to have that little extra security by fixing your unit down to the ground.  So here is how to do it:

Bolting an Asgard shed to the ground is very easy.  All Asgard storage sheds are supplied with an installation kit, including anchor bolts.  

All of our sheds have pre drilled fixing points in the corners (8mm diameter), ready for anchoring the unit to the ground.

Tools you will need:

Power driver (electric drill).

6mm Masonry drill bit.

13mm Socket.

Brush or hoover (optional).

 

Before you begin: - Important points to note for fitting your Asgard shed to the Floor:

-          The unit must be secured into a good solid concrete. At least 75mm deep - Why do I need a base?

-          Before fixing the unit, plan where it will go before bolting it down.

-          Check for pipe work under the ground.

-          We recommend the use of safety goggles when carrying out this work.

-          You mays also want a brush and a hoover to clean as you go (optional).

 

1:     Each Asgard shed has a pre drilled base, ready to bolt the unit to the ground.

*You will need to clean debris from the hole as you drill.  Take care not to drill the metal base of your shed or you will remove the protective coating.  If you do damage the metal work, you MUST treat the hole with a rust inhibitor.  Failure to treat the area will invalidate your warranty.

3:     Thumb tighten the bolt into the hole.
