Lifelong Steel Buildings
Offer ends 31st October 2018!
The Lifelong Apex steel shed is a stylish, robust and secure steel shed made to last with PVC coated galvanised steel cladding fitted to a rigid 40mm x 40mm box steel frame. Available in a wide range of sizes from 6ft x 7ft up to 12ft x 23ft 3in.
The Lifelong Apex steel shed is not to be compared to the metal sheds available in catalogues or many garden centres. These buildings are extremely strong and built to last. PVC coated galvanised steel cladding is fitted to a painted steel box frame, on-site, by Lifelong trained installers.
We also offer this model in a pent style. Click here to view this model.
PVC Coated Galvanised Steel Cladding
Strong steel cladding fitted to a rigid 40mm x 40mm box steel frame available in 4 attractive colours.
A strong steel single door fitted within the box framework meaning the door cannot be lifted off it's hinges.
The sliding bolt lock is fitted onto the main door for additional security, ready for you to fit a padlock of your choice.
A white, opening, double glazed window is included as standard and fitted to the front of the shed in a position of your choice.
Included is a 18mm OSB timber floor.
No painting, treating or worrying when garden shrubs start to grow up the building.
No Concrete Base
While we would still recommend a base, the Lifelong Shed can sit on the ground providing this is reasonably level and clear of obstruction.
The roof cladding is treated with an anti-condensation membrane to prevent dripping in cold conditions.
Delivery and Installation Included
No extra charge is required for delivery and installation and your shed can be delivered and erected in one visit by our professional team in 2 to 3 hours.

Without doubt the most popular size in our range of Lifelong sheds, this building is 2.5 metres wide and 3.1m deep.
The door and window can be interchanged to suit your location or we can leave windows out entirely if you prefer for additional security.
This is a roomy building, very secure and sturdily built with maintenance free PVC coated steel cladding in olive green finish.
It's on display at our Coleshill branch, one of a selection of our sites which have demonstration models of these exceptionally strong buildings. In order to find out where you can examine the quality of construction just click on the 'where can I see one' tab at the top of this page.
There is a window on the LH side which you can't see in the picture but on this side you can see the translucent roof sheet which is a useful addition to the standard building. The double front door is also an option as single doors are supplied as standard.
Late evening and the tools and equipment are put away and padlocked in for the night !
This mushroom coloured Lifelong shed has the standard window and single door ( contrast it with the picture above which has double door and no windows. )
Metric size is 2.5m wide x 5.1m long.
This is the 2.1m wide x 2.1m deep Lifelong Apex in Olive Green finish, one of four colour choices available. This one is pictured at our Wolverhampton display centre, one of over 30 GBC branches nationwide.
Please use the 'where can I see one' link on this page to find out where your nearest branch displaying the Lifelong range is located.
This sturdy padbolt is fitted to every Lifelong building and slides into the box section steel framework so it can't be prised out to gain entry. There's a fold over hasp which means you can fit your own padlock ... but don't lose the keys as you can't lift the door off its hinges or lever it open.. it's just too strong and secure !
Lifelong sheds are built on site to exacting standards. These are definitely NOT the steel sheds you can get from catalogues or some garden centres.
They utilise high quality PVC coated galvanised steel cladding which is bolted to a rigid painted 40mm x 40mm steel framework on site. You can see some of the key features in this picture such as the draught proof packers in the ends of the cladding and the sturdy framework.
Contrast this with the flimsy steel sheds you see elsewhere which have no floor and poor quality sliding doors and you'll realise what good value for money Lifelong sheds offer.
All Lifelong sheds include installation by the factory's expert fitting teams.. one of the other major benefits of buying Lifelong steel.
This 8ft wide Apex is perfectly suited for storage of garden machinery, bikes, as a workshop, or just for general storage.
Because the doors are so strong and secure and can't be lifted or prized off their hinges, you can be sure your contents are well protected.
The 18mm heavy duty OSB floor is an ideal finish and can be easily swept and maintained.
You can see how much light the translucent roof sheet on the RH side is allowing into the rear of the building.
Lifelong sheds are built around a rigid, heavy duty box section steel skeleton which makes them secure, heavyweight and longlasting.
Because of the nature of the floor frame construction we can install Lifelong Steel buildings onto slightly uneven surfaces with the use of packers to level the building up.
This is against our usual advice for timber sheds which is to prepare an absolutely level base of slabs or concrete but with Lifelong it could save you the cost of a new base if you are installing onto an old hardstanding which has become a little uneven.
Shown here from the inside you can see the white, double glazed maintenance free PVCu opening window supplied as standard with Lifelong steel buildings.
Smaller models may have a single pane window. Black PVC windows are an additional cost option.
For additional security you may wish to specify the building without a window and perhaps specify the optional translucent roof sheet.
This Lifelong shed has been installed onto a gravelled area rather than a conventional slab base.
It's obviously important to get the building square and level to ensure that the door and windows operate properly but once the rigid steel frame has been levelled up the rest of the installation is straightforward.
This building has an additional window in the side, just visible in the picture.
