Duratuf's waterproofing pedigree is legendary! The 'No Leaks' roof system is unique to Duratuf, and the timber frame means no flashings at the bottom of the wall that might trap water and cause corrosion. Click the icons to find out more
One Piece 'Press-Bent' Roof
The innovative 'Press-bent' gable roof design is a brilliant design that is, "toot-toot", unique to Duratuf Garden sheds. You see, the less joins there are, the less opportunity for leaks! Its quite simple actually, but you will only find it on a Duratuf. Remember, less joins means less leaks.
Gutter for Water Control
When the rain hits the roof, it's got to go somewhere. So, instead of our sheds being designed to trap the water on the roof (like others do), we decided to use special Duratuf gutters to let the water flow off the roof. The gutter then directs the water away from the door area.
Extra Thick Hi-Tensile Steel Cladding
When it comes to steel cladding, we aren't trying to go as thin as possible. It's just not the Duratuf way. Duratuf full timber framed garden sheds have 0.4mm thick hi-tensile anti-rust steel. That's up to 60% thicker than some competitors, meaning that it's not only stronger, but your shed will stay looking better for longer!
30 Year Steel Warranty
When buying a garden shed, it is important to have peace of mind that it is going to stay looking good for a long time. That is why we guarantee the integrity of out steel cladding for 30 years. And, being a NZ Manufacturer, we are here for you in the unlikely event that you have a problem with your cladding. Conditions apply.
Shed Lighting Options
Lighting and ventilation can be important if you are spending time in your garden shed. Natural light from clear roof panels or windows are the perfect option. And if all else fails, simply switch on the solar shed light! Click on the icons to see the options.
Need ventilation AND light? Choose a louvre window! Comes complete with an aluminium louvre mechanism and the glass panes to fit. Unlike other shed windows, the Duratuf window kit includes extra framing for the inside to make it rigid and secure.
The Duratuf fixed window is the best way to get natural daylight into your garden shed. Place the window closest to where you will be wanting the light. The fixed window comes complete with the glass window pane and extra timber framing.
Clear Roof Panel
A Clear Roof Panel provides uninterrupted UV free daylight which is perfect for a workshop situation. For gable roof sheds, you can choose from single side or double side options depending on your requirements. Note; Clear panels may condensate more than steel roofing.
Your Choice Of Gable Roof or...
Kiwi gable sheds have roof sheets that are press-bent in the middle to eliminate the centre join. This ingenious design means that the roof sheet spans from one side of the shed to the other without any joins at the gable. This gives the Kiwi shed added strength and rigidity as well as being exceptionally weatherproof.
The sloping roof design means that water runs off to the rear. This is ideal when used against a fence so that the water run-off is away from the door area. The mono-pitch roof looks clean and modern. The Fortress range has lean-to roof as standard on all of it's models.
Premium Clear Roof Panel
Duratuf Clear Roof Panels provide UV free natural daylight inside your shed. this is perfect if you are using your shed for a workshop and need light while the door may be closed. For gable shed models you can choose from either single side or both sides of the roof. Please note that clear roof panels may condensate more than a steel roof during cold weather.
Raised Floor Modification
The unique design of all Duratuf sheds allows them to be easily modified for use with a raised concrete pad.
This modification causes the wall cladding to overhang a concrete floor slab, which creates excellent weather-proofing, something that can't be done with non-timber framed garden sheds.
Note: When you select the raised floor modification option, the head height of the product will be lowered by 30mm. This change in dimension may be important to consider if you have specific requirements for the use of the product. This only needs to be specified when ordering a Kiwi range shed.
Timber Floor Kit
Duratuf Timber floor kits create a strong, level working platform that fit inside the shed and on top of the bottom plate, not underneath like other sheds. This has a number of advantages including: It creates a level access into the shed. The cladding extends past the floor level and stops water leaking back into the shed. The extra weight inside the shed provides exeptional hold-down ability. The Custom made Duratuf Floor Kit has everything you need including thick gauge timber floor boards, ground treated H4 joists, galvanised nails and an attractive doorway flashing.
Organise your workspace with the Duratuf Built-in Tool Board. Different sizes are available to fit into the end wall of most sheds. They come cut to fit and complete with ply, extra framing and installation hardware.
It’s a bloke thing - a built-in workbench that’s solid enough to mount your vice on and tough enough to take the hard knocks. Different sizes are available for most models and are custom built to fit into the end wall of the sheds.
Fixed Pane Window
The Duratuf fixed garden shed window includes extra framing and the pre-cut glass all ready to install.
The perfect option to provide both light and ventilation to your garden shed. The aluminium window kit includes the pre-cut glass panes and extra framing, creating the best shed window system in the market.
Door Security Upgrades
Keep intruders at bay by upgrading your shed doors to keyed locking handles. These are not only more secure, but also easier to open with one hand if you are holding an armful of gear as you enter.
Bolt Down Kit
If your shed is to be attached to a concrete floor or base, the Bolt Down Kit allows you to securely anchor your shed without damaging either your concrete pad or the timber frame of the shed. The kit consists of hot dipped galvanised steel brackets, with Dynabolts to anchor into the concrete floor and screws to attach to the bottom frame.
