The Globel® Apex shed has internal sliding double doors as standard. Metal handles are designed to accept a padlock (not supplied) when both doors are closed together.
Globel® metal sheds are supplied in flat-pack form with comprehensive assembly instructions. Metal sheds can be notoriously difficult to assemble, however this assembly is uncomplicated (only basic tools are required) and no professional experience is necessary. Normally 2 people can complete the job in 4-5 hours. A firm concrete base is recommended to make a sound job, however it can also be fitted to the optional steel foundation kit, or timber floor kit. Assembling your building yourself can be very satisfying and it has several advantages:- you probably won’t have to wait as long for delivery, you can assemble it on a day suitable to you, and you’ll save money! All sheds come with full assembly instructions, fixings and fastenings, but to give you a rough idea, here is an animated step-by-step assembly video.
