GUARDING YOUR GEAR
Semi Timber Frame
A garden shed without a timber frame is like a human without a backbone. So to create a shed that stands up to New Zealand's harsh environment, without being harsh on the pocket, we've used 'timber where it counts'. This design philosophy combined with streamlined manufacturing processes allows us to offer a range of garden sheds that are a step above the rest in value for money.
Proudly Made in New Zealand
All Duratuf semi timber frame garden sheds are manufactured by the dedicated, hardworking team here at our Hamilton factory. We take pride in every shed we build, so you can trust that you'll get a level of quality and service that is truly unmatched. Please buy New Zealand made and keep your country pumping.
5 Popular Steel Colour Options
We offer 5 colours option, so it is easy to find the right colour to suit your property.
Advanced Water Run Off
Surely everybody wants a weatherproof garden shed? It’s important then, that water flows away from your shed to ensure your valuable gear is kept dry. The unique design of our sheds ensures that water is not trapped on or around them.
Duratuf timber frame sheds feature a unique construction method where the cladding is nailed to the top and bottom plates. This method ensures that water runs away from the shed easily as there are no channels to trap leaves, dirt and water that will leak, or sit and corrode the cladding. (Fig. 1)
Conventional shed designs require a channel at the top and bottom of the shed to hold the cladding together. (Fig. 2)
Treated Timber Top & Bottom Plates
Duratuf Semi Timber Frame garden sheds incorporate a treated 45 x 45mm timber plate top and bottom that locks together at the corners.
As well as providing superior strength, it creates an excellent platform to enable you to shelve out your garden shed, hang up your valuable gear and maximise your storage capacity.
0.3mm Hi-Tensile Cladding
Duratuf Semi Timber Frame garden sheds feature a hi-tensile, deep ribbed 0.30 gauge steel cladding. Roll-formed in our factory in Hamilton, New Zealand, it is available in a classic non-rust Zinc/Aluminium finish, or your choice of four popular colour options.
For your further peace of mind our Semi Timber Framed sheds are backed up by a full 20 Year Warranty on all steel cladding. (Conditions apply)
4 Step Assembly System
An easy 4 step assembly system process of putting together a Duratuf Semi-Timber Framed Garden Shed. This type of assembly system saves time, reduce frustration, and ensure that the product is assembled correctly and functioning as intended.
Big On Roof Strength
With bigger garden sheds, it’s especially important that they have a strong framing system to support the larger walls and the bigger roof span.
Duratuf's gable roofed sheds not only have the timber wall frames for strength, but also a strong timber ridge beam structure to support the bigger span. Don’t settle for anything less!

Clear Roof Panel
Duratuf Clear Roof Panels provide UV free natural daylight inside your shed. Perfect for if you're 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.

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.
