Add Doors and Windows
We can add a pedestrian access door (810mm W x 1920mm H) and fixed or opening aluminium joinery windows (970mm W x 520mm H) in multiple locations on your Lifestyle shed.
Secure Roller Door
Quality NZ made roller door provides uninhibited access for larger items while giving you peace of mind knowing your valuable gear is safe from theft.
Horizontal corrugate cladding and wide gauge box flashings create a modern yet classic design aesthetic that looks striking on any landscape.
Hi Span Laminated Roof Beams
For the ultimate in strength and durability.
Robust Timber Framing
Built to withstand New Zealand’s wild weather conditions. The full timber frame adds strength and rigidity.
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 Lifestyle 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 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.
Concrete Base Specs
If laying a concrete base make it 20mm smaller in both width and depth than your chosen model. Lifestyle sheds over 10m2 require a concrete slab that meets the NZ Building Code to be compliant. Which means damp protection must be laid underneath the slab, it must be at least 100mm thick in the centre and 200mm thick around the edges, and be at least 50mm above ground level.
High Wind Zone Rated
Built with safety, strength, and durability in mind, the Lifestyle shed range has a timber-reinforced heavy-duty construction, engineered to NZS 3604 High Wind Zone specification.
The Lifestyle shed can withstand most of Mother Nature’s wear and tear, but for those Very High Wind Zone areas, we offer an NZS 3604 Very High Wind Zone shed upgrade kit.
For more information regarding wind zones, visit the Branz website: https://www.branz.co.nz/branz-maps-zones/
Snow Load Rated
Live in New Zealand’s high country where snowfalls are regular? We have you covered with a NZS 3605 standard 1 kPa engineered load rating on all our Lifestyle sheds.
However, for those higher elevation areas with severe snow, the Snow Load Upgrade Kit is a perfect addition to your Lifestyle shed, with a 2kPa upgrade Snow Load kit option to suit NZS 3604 standards, reinforcing the sheds inner roof structure.

Lifestyle sheds are delivered in a single crate as a ready to build kitset and come with comprehensive assembly instructions.
If ordered with a timber floor kit this will be packaged separately.
Lifestyle sheds are a great project for a competent DIYer, otherwise we recommend hiring a builder or an assembly service.
Plywood Floor Kit
Made from 15mm H3 plywood with ground treated H4 joists. Comes complete with galvanised nails and an attractive treadplate doorway flashing. For Ponsonby and Fendalton models the plywood floor sits inside the shed on the bottom plate. For Marlborough and Kaipara models the bottom plate sits on top of the floor, and waterproofing is achieved with a DPC membrane.
Timber Floor Kit
The custom made Duratuf Floor Kit has everything you need including thick gauge 150mm timber floor boards, ground treated H4 joists, galvanised nails and an attractive treadplate doorway flashing.

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. Please note that clear roof panels may condensate more than a steel roof during cold weather.
Aluminium Fixed Window
A high quality NZ manufactured aluminium joinery fixed window is perfect to let extra light into your shed. You can choose to have it match the cladding colour, the door colour, or any other available colour you prefer. The flashings surrounding the window must match the other flashings on your shed. Window measures 970mm W x 520mm H.

Window measures 970mm W x 520mm H.
Pedestrian Access Door
Take your accessibility up a notch with a pedestrian access door (810mm W x 1920mm H). The door is steel framed and can be the same colour as the shed, the roller door, or whichever other colour you prefer.
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.
Peg Down Kit
The Duratuf peg down kit is perfect for anchoring your garden shed on ground such as grass, dirt or metal. The 6 x H5 treated pegs are driven into the ground and screwed to the bottom plate with the stainless steel screws provided. A timber floor kit can then be fitted over the top if required.
This innovative mains free shed alarm is easily fixed inside the framing of your Duratuf shed. Features an ultra-loud 130db siren.
5 Tier Shelf Unit
Maximise your storage space with this bolt free interlocking kitset shelf unit. Each shelf support has a 350kg load rating with quality MDF shelves. With a galvanised frame it is built to last - an ideal complement to your Duratuf shed. Approximate Size: 900mm W x 400mm D x 1800mm H
