Wide Span Sheds is proud to be a ShedSafe accredited steel kit building supplier. ShedSafe is an independent industry body that conducts reviews of supplier engineering plans and calculations, to ensure they comply with the Building Code of Australia. This ensures that site-specific criteria are met, in particular, the considerations required in regards to wind regions and loads.
Safety and Compliance
Safety is always the number one priority at Wide Span Sheds. We are a family-owned business and understand how important it is to ensure that your family is kept safe. As a result, years of research have been invested into ensuring that our steel building kits withstand the test of time and Australia's harsh climate and conditions.
We provide strength in our pre-engineered range of designs through added structural integrity as standard. All Wide Span Sheds structures are supplied with extended purlin and girt overlaps, as well as our unique rafter-over column haunch system. Every structure is designed 'site-specific' taking into consideration factors such as wind region, shielding, importance level, terrain and topography, snow and earthquake loading. Each factor is assessed before designing and quoting your steel building.
Why did ShedSafe Form?
With Australia's unpredictable weather conditions, the structural integrity of any building is critical. A number of recent severe tropical cyclones uncovered a large number of buildings that didn't adhere to industry standards, which required the Australian Steel Institute to take action.
The outcome was the formation of ShedSafe, an industry accreditation that provides customers with an assurance that the steel buildings they purchase do in fact adhere to the Building Codes of Australia.
Why Choose ShedSafe?
ShedSafe is managed by the Australian Steel Institute, Australia’s peak steel industry body. By choosing a ShedSafe accredited supplier you have the extra confidence that your building design will, in fact, have structural integrity and meet the BCA standards. The body also recommends that all sheds must be constructed by licensed professionals approved by the local regulatory authority.
