Why choose a Wide Span Shed if you are in a cyclonic region

Living in a cyclone-prone area comes with its unique challenges and risks. Choosing the right shed and preparing for severe weather can make all the difference to the safety of your assets and family.

At Wide Span Sheds, we understand the importance of durability and resilience in the face of harsh weather conditions along the coastal regions of Australia. Here are compelling reasons why Wide Span cyclone-rated sheds and garages are the ultimate choice for your specific needs and the safety of your goods and loved ones:

Customer Experience & Reviews

Witnessing the aftermath of a severe cyclone truly gauges a shed's resilience. After Cyclone Yasi in 2011, causing AU$1.5 billion in damages, many structures succumbed. However, Wide Span Sheds' 14 x 7 shed owned by Ray Wilson in Tully Heads emerged unscathed, as documented in 'Queensland Country Life' in April 2011. This real-life testament underscores the importance of a shed's durability. Mr. Wilson is just one of many happy customers who have purchased a Wide Span Shed. See more here.

Whether it's storage, workspace, or a combination of both, our buildings provide a secure and practical solution for your cyclone-prone region.

Preparing your Shed for Severe Weather 

In addition to having a cyclone rated shed, there are ways in which you can prepare for extreme weather conditions. For all Queenslanders who are at risk of the tropical cyclone that is heading toward the coastline, the Government has created a guide of ways in which you can get ready. See some examples below:

  • Check the condition of your roof and repair if needed.
  • Keep gutters and downpipes clear of leaves and other blockages.
  • Trim trees and branches that are close to your buildings. Always check with your local council first.
  • Repair any broken seals around windows to make sure water can't get inside.
  • Keep yard clear of leaves and rubbish. Remove vegetation around fence lines.
