Double checking shed door heights

Double-checking your shed door heights is an absolute necessity, and this is one of the biggest mistakes our customers make. You know what you need to keep in your shed so before you even start looking for a new garage or shed, make sure you measure everything you intend to put in it. This way you will have the appropriate clearance to get everything in through the doors. 

Standard roller doors simply don’t fit most boats, trucks or trailers. Therefore, if this is what you are finding a storage solution for make sure your shed is designed with the right sized door heights. 

The clearance or headroom required by a roller door has many influencing factors and can vary anywhere between 200mm and 550mm. Influencing factors are the size of the roller door, the positioning (whether it is on the gutter side or gable/peak end) and if there are multiple rollers side by side. 

We have had many customers come back to us, upset because they either didn’t measure the items they wanted to fit in their shed, or they did not take into consideration the space lost due to the roller doors. We recommend you send the dimensions to your sales representative and double check your quote to make sure they have also incorporated the right dimensions. It can be quite a costly and upsetting mistake if you get this measurement wrong.

The team at Wide Span Sheds have the expertise to help you design a shed to suit your needs, however, we need you to help us out by providing us with the correct dimensions. Any other information that you can provide certainly helps us find the perfect shed for you.
