Rowlinson Security Shed Apex 7×5
This Rowlinson Security Shed 7 x 5 is part of their Security shed range. The security sheds are typical garden sheds with a little something extra – no standard glass window, more secure door furniture and door hinges. Rowlinsons also offer the Security Apex 6 x 4 and Security Apex 8 x 6
The wall sections are clad with a 12mm finished shiplap cladding. Constructed with plywood for the roof, the shed’s floor is made of tongue and groove (TGV)boards. It is vitally important (as with all buildings) that the building is placed on pressure treated bearers to ensure the timbers are not in ground contact. More details are in the enclosed assembly instructions. The building is supplied with mineral felt for the apex pitched roof. Both windows and the double doors are glazed with 3mm toughened glass.

Supplied Finish & Painting
The shed is supplied ready stained but Rowlinsons describe this as “only a preparatory treatment. To VALIDATE the guarantee, the building must be properly treated with a recognised external wood preserver WITHIN 3 MONTHS of assembly and RE-TREATED ANNUALLY thereafter”. Ro with a dipped finish, and the timbers must be further protected by the application of a quality wood stain/preserver.
Shiplap buildings come ready stained but this is only a preparatory treatment, to validate the Rowlinson guarantee, they state the building must be properly treat
ed with a recognised external wood preserver within 3 months of assembly and then re-treated annually. We would recommend treating these products as soon as practically possible, 3 days is better than three weeks is better than 3 months! Rowlinson’s recommend that a suitable wood preservative is applied to both sides of the floor before assembly. The whole of the building’s timbers should be treated with your preferred finish of Woodstain or paint as soon as possible after assembly. Ensure your chosen finish is suitable for use with planed (as opposed to sawn) timber.

Adequate provision must be made to avoid ground contact and ensure air can circulate underneath the building. Placing the building on a concrete pad or slab base is acceptable provided that the building is not allowed to sit in pooled water during wet conditions. If the building is to sit on soil or grass it MUST be erected on pressure treated wooden 50mm x 50mm or similar bearers (These are not supplied in the kit). Rowlinson Garden Products recommend using pressure treated bearers with all buildings on any type of base
