- Sliding doors at one end of the shed provide easy access and means that machinery stored at the back of the shed isn’t boxed in.
- The open-front configuration provides adequate light through the shed shed during the day without the need for hi-bay lights. This configuration is also the most versatile configuration for a storage shed as it is also suited to hay storage or grain storage.
- A custom gutter system prevents the downpipes being damaged or broken when loading or unloading the machinery as downpipes are only required at each end of the shed, rather than down the face of each column.
- Bay spacings of 9 metres makes loading and unloading the shed easier, faster and safer.
