Creating a base for the Flexistore 1533
If you are thinking about purchasing the Flexistore 1533 Garden shed garden shed, before your shed arrives, check that the location and the foundation that you will place the Flexistore1533 Garden Shed is suitable for installation.
1) Is your chosen location suitable?- check that there are no plants/bushes close to the unit.
Be sure to make sure there are no plants or bushes surrounding the metal shed as this will cause excessive moisture to enter the unit through the shed vents and can cause dampness.
2) Is the foundation firm and suitable?- Prepare a solid concrete foundation for the shed to sit on.
This metal garden shed is made from galvanised steel panels and weighs 284kg, it needs to be fixed on a solid base to prevent it moving around after installation. We recommend using a concrete or tarmac foundation which is at least 100mm deep and is wider than the base of the unit. Please note that the base of the Flexistore metal shed measures at 1730mm x 3770mm.
Alternatively you can use paving slabs or flagstones which are stable, solid and fixed to the ground (i.e. not sitting on top of gravel).
Make sure that the concrete foundation is completely dry before installing the unit on top.
