Saffron DuraMax DuraMate® PVC Shed

The DuraMax DuraMate® PVC (vinyl) shed is a fire-retardant plastic clad, steel framed garden shed. It is easy to assemble, weather-resistant, maintenance-free, and will never rot or rust, hence the manufacturers 10-year limited warranty. The DuraMax DuraMate is available in 2 sizes – approx. 8×6 and 8×8, all are approximately 8ft wide (only the depth from front-to-back varies). All sizes feature double-doors on the 8ft end, and are supplied in a neutral ivory colour. DuraMax® PVC products are manufactured in the U.S.A. to stringent quality standards. The PVC resin is unique to DuraMax®, and as well as being fire-retardant, it won’t fade in harsh sunlight. This is due to special UV inhibitors and modifiers.

Quality Construction

DuraMax® vinyl sheds are clad with the highest quality, fire-retardant PVC onto a galvanized steel frame. All DuraMax buildings are virtually maintenance free, and come with a 10-year limited warranty. The DuraMax DuraMate is designed to have lasting good looks, and won’t rot, rust or mildew. It doesn’t come with a floor, however a foundation kit is now included, making it easy to flood-fill with concrete or fit a timber/plywood floor surface. A skylight window is included as standard.


All DuraMax® buildings are weather resistant, and won’t rot, rust, mildew, or dent. The fire-retardant vinyl walls won’t need painting, and the ivory colour won’t fade. Occasional cleaning of the main building, and a touch of oil on the hinges will keep your building looking great for many years.

Doors, Windows and Locking System

The DuraMax® DuraMate has wide (61″) hinged double-doors on the 8ft end. Door handles include a padlock eye ready to secure the shed (padlock not included). Optional window units are available, however this shed comes with an integral roof skylight as standard.

Straight-forward Assembly

These DuraMax® buildings are supplied in flat-pack form with comprehensive, easy-to-follow instructions. The assembly is uncomplicated (only basic tools are required) and no professional experience is necessary. Normally 2 people can complete the job in a few hours. A firm concrete base is recommended to make a sound job, however foundation kits are also available to make an easy job.

Optional Extras

This garden building is supplied as a full kit, complete with all necessary fixings, fastenings etc., however you can purchase a Hilti Fixing Kit or a Foundation Kit to make things easier when installing. An optional window kit is also available.
