The team at Wide Span Sheds are known for providing Australian farmers with quality steel farm sheds of all shapes and sizes. We are a trusted steel building supplier, and that is because we have a genuine love and appreciation for rural buildings of all kinds.
ZINCALUME® steel is a popular choice for many farmers, and why shouldn’t it be? It is a high quality galvanised steel that has the lifespan of up to four times that of other galvanised steel products. It is a product of iconic Australian brand, BlueScope Steel and it simply looks amazing.
Wide Span Sheds believes in providing an efficient service and when it comes to the delivery of your new steel building, we don’t want to keep you waiting. In most cases, you should receive your shed within 4 – 6 weeks from when your building goes into manufacturing.
Wide Span Sheds supply our steel buildings in kit form, which allows our customers to either erect the shed as an owner builder (permits may be required), or to employ the professional services of a qualified shed builder.
The price of your steel garage will depend on a range of things; such as the layout you select, the design criteria, whether or not you make changes, optional extras, right through to the design and delivery (if you are located outside of our delivery zones). We do not hide these costs from you, and our sales representatives will make sure you are aware of any additional fees throughout the sales process.
One of the things Wide Span Sheds strongly recommends is that you find out what is required by council before you purchase a new garage, shed or kit home. You may need to submit a development application or apply for a building licence; the requirements can differ greatly depending on where you are located.
The smartest of investors like to do their research first – that’s why we have created our online virtual tours. Potential customers can look through our buildings in the luxury of their own home, in their own time.
The evolution of the industrial steel shed or commercial premise has been extraordinary, and these buildings have really evolved over the past 50 years. We’ve seen many iconic buildings made from this powerful building material, and we have witnessed firsthand these buildings withstand strong gale-force winds and immense pressure from the natural elements.
Australia has seen it’s fair share of cyclones in recent years, and Cyclone Yasi is one that changed the shed industry forever. The absolute devastation it caused called for a review of steel sheds designed for cyclonic regions, and the building standards in these areas were significantly increased.
