We launched our No Bull Sheds range at Fieldays last year. We were pretty chuffed John Key took the time to come and check us out.
At Waikato Sheds we’ve been in the business of designing and building sheds for a pretty long time now. We do the whole, fully customised shed offering. It was really through feedback from people we spoke to, and seeing that many standard steel sheds provided by other suppliers didn’t cut the mustard, that we created No Bull Sheds.
There’s a whole lot more to a steel shed than meets the eye. We were pretty concerned about claims that some of the ‘well known’ brands were making about quality that we knew weren’t quite right. The thing with a steel shed is it has to be built out of the best. Steel is a fantastic product, but then there is steel and then there is good steel. There is construction, and then there is good construction.
We focus on keeping the price down with our No Bull Sheds range but, there’s no way we compromise on quality. All our sheds are built with only the highest quality components, they are built tough and designed to last. They are manufactured from New Zealand Steel. Steel made right here in New Zealand to suit New Zealand conditions. Check out their website. They are the only steel manufactures in the world to create steel out of iron sand. Other international steel manufacturers come here to learn from our guys at New Zealand Steel. We should be proud of that and know that our steel is some of the best in the world. And that is what we use at Waikato Sheds. Only the best.
Every shed we create is engineered to meet the New Zealand building code, wind zone compliance and has our manufacture warranty.
We also operate under the Shed Safe trademark. ShedSafe™ is an industry benchmark accreditation scheme for steel shed design initiated by the Australian Steel Institute (ASI) for Australian shed suppliers. ShedSafe™ accreditation came about after the ASI learned that most sheds that had structural failure during Cyclone Larry were not built to the standards set by the Building Code. Evidence of under-engineered sheds was discovered, putting people and property at risk.
Using a ShedSafe™ accredited company like us, and the only in New Zealand, provides you with increased confidence that the engineering guidelines set by the strict Building Code are adhered to.
Waikato Shed Company is an authorised distributor of Fair Dinkum Sheds. Fair Dinkum Sheds is currently one of only six companies in Australia that has gained accreditation, and the only company that operates in both Australia and New Zealand that has gained this accreditation.
ShedSafe™ accreditation cannot be purchased – it has to be earned.
To earn accreditation Fair Dinkum Sheds underwent a rigorous auditing and certification process by the ASI’s panel of independent engineers and specialists. Being ShedSafe™ accredited is a commitment that buildings are designed to adhere to the Building Code.
So when you go to by a shed, think about the quality, longevity and warranty you need.
