Frequently Asked Questions

EXPAND ALL COLLAPSE ALL

If the building is shorter than 2.5m tall at the eaves you should not require planning permission (unless it’s more than 50% of your garden or to be put in your front garden). Planning permission rules can vary by area, so we strongly recommend checking your local council rules before ordering from us.

Though a base isn’t necessarily as important for a metal shed as it would be for a wooden alternative, having your metal shed sat on a base can still provide a whole host of benefits.

While a base isn’t needed to prevent rotting or rust over time, good foundations can prevent your shed from sinking into the ground. Moreover, if your lawn isn’t level, building a shed of any material on top of it can lead to major issues concerning structural integrity in the future - something which a base can comfortably tackle. This building includes a foundation kit to provide a solid base for your shed and increase its structural stability.

Yes, it comes with comprehensive and straightforward step-by-step instructions to make the building process enjoyable and stress-free.

There are a number of advantages that can be attributed to metal sheds:

They provide superb security: Metal sheds can provide extra protection against thieves, as they feature reinforced hinges that prevent forced entry. Similarly, the doors and walls offer thick steel panels which cannot be easily broken into.

Maintenance-free: The amount of time spent maintaining a metal shed is almost non-existent. Courtesy of galvanised steel, the metal is protected from the elements, preventing the formation of rust.

Very affordable: Metal sheds represent a cheaper option than the wooden alternative. So, if space is most important to you, then a metal shed offers a sizable garden storage option that won’t break the bank.

Lotus Hera Apex Metal Shed

Our Lotus metal sheds come in a range of sizes, all at a reasonable price. And the Hera apex is no exception, at a comfortable 7x4 size for just £399, available with fast delivery. With a tall product height for added headroom, lots of storage space, and galvanised steel cladding for protection against the British weather with minimal maintenance, the Hera Apex is a quality metal building that suits any storage need and any garden.

Metal Garden Storage

For larger items like garden tools, lawn mowers, and even bikes you want secure storage. A shed allows you to not only make sure everything's safe and in one spot, but to make the most of the rest of your garden space. The Hera metal shed offers reliable storage that'll keep your belongings safe and dry.

Apex Metal Shed

Apex roof metal sheds typically slope to either side of the shed door (or face) with slight roof overhangs. This roof style allows for increased headroom on the inside as well as excellent water runoff. And with a ridge height and eaves height under 4m and 2.5m, respectively you won't require planning permission.

The roof material on this traditional apex design is weather-resistant and offers the Hera a sturdy roof to top it all off.

Windowless Design

A windowless design, especially in a metal shed, is perfect for extra security. So if you're housing valuable bikes and tools in your Hera shed, you can keep your belongings in and prying eyes out. Plus, wide-opening double doors with lockable handles offer natural light whilst you're working - perfect if you're looking at metal garden workshops.

Air Circulation

Air circulation is highly important in all sheds, especially metal models. That's why our Lotus sheds have functional vents included as standard. This helps with thermal regulation on hot (and cold) days as well as allowing air vents to circulate air and prevent condensation or even damp.

Weather Resistant

The durable metal the Hera is made from is designed to stand up to even harsh weather conditions and offer durable protection year-round. This is the ideal choice for homeowners who want a virtually stress (and maintenance)-free shed. Unlike wooden sheds, metal sheds won't require treatment or much attention at all.

Assembly

Your Lotus building will be delivered in flat pack form with pre-measured and cut steel panels that can be assembled in a couple of hours. Simply follow the thorough assembly instructions provided with your order.

Convenient 7x4 Size

A 7x4 offer ample storage for everything from a couple of bikes to lots of garden equipment. With double doors for easy access, you'll also find that the Hera apex is a cheaper option than many wooden sheds of a similar size.

Galvanised Steel Construction

Galvanised steel construction is well-known for its durable properties including preventing the formation of rust and corrosion. That's why we've used galvanised steel cladding for our Lotus Hera to give you long-lasting quality.

Steel Foundation Kit
