If you are after the latest news, product information or DIY tips for everything to do with your shed or kit home, read over our latest blog posts below.
Let’s take a journey back to early 2006.
There are so many details we need to consider in order to select a shed that is right for you and the site it is intended to go on. That’s why your Wide Span Sheds representative will ask you lots of questions. They are basically trying to understand your needs, and get accurate information so they can give you an accurate quote.
BlueScope Steel is a trusted Australian brand; an icon that has been producing high quality steel to the Australian market for half a century. BlueScope Steel take what they do very seriously, and they conduct regular testing and analysis on their steel products, working tirelessly to better improve and align their products with Australia’s changing climate.
As with Terrain Category and Topography Factor, the Shielding Factor also plays an integral part in determining the site design criteria for a particular location. As the name suggests, it looks at structures that will potentially ‘shield’ your shed or garage from the wind.
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.
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.
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 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.
