How Safe is Your Garden Shed?


By Adam Meyna - 4th May 2011

Worried about storing your expensive bike, lawn mower and faithful tool kit in your Garden Shed?

Garden Sheds and Garages are ideal places to store those additional valuables that take up far too much room in your house. However, security can be an issue.

Purchasing a Garden Shed from Crane Sheds and Summerhouses, instantly helps reduce the security issue, as all our Garden Sheds are made using expert workmanship and high quality timber producing a more secure and stable structure. Excellent quality timber, combined with strong floors, efficient joinery, doors and windows are all essential in creating a robust building.

Windows are a popular choice, as they allow the light to flood in and can create a more relaxing ambience. If windows are favoured, ensure toughened glass is fitted, as this is much harder to break compared to single glazing. Window bars (ideally steel) mortised into the top and bottom window transoms can increase the security, preventing anyone from climbing through the window if it did happen to get broken.

All Crane Garden Shed doors are designed using t-hinges with non returnable anti-vandal screws which offer that extra level of peace of mind, as unscrewing the door is a popular way of breaking into sheds.

Crane Sheds and Summerhouses prefer to use their own Masterlock, which is a heavy duty sliding bolt with fully encased 7 lever lock which is anti-sawing, anti-picking, anti-cropping and anti-prising so all aspects covered!
