As a bridge between traditional outdoor garden shelters and garages, the Fortress Shed was created. The Fortress Shed is slimline and is equipped with a roller door and a level roof, as well as a sturdy framework that makes it extremely resistant to break-ins. Downpipes and gutters are included, as well as strong internal bracing composed of tough, high-tensile BlueScope steel. Council approval is required for this outdoor shed.

Anchors: 16 anchors (4 packs) are required and are available for additional purchase
Absco Sheds come with pre-punched holes and labelled parts for a faster and easier assembly and an easy-to-follow assembly video.
Absco’s Australian made sheds are DIY kits, and do not come with a base or floor. All sheds need to be securely anchored to a concrete slab and anchors can be purchased separately. For this model, you will require 16 anchors (4 packs) to safely anchor it in your garden. Watch: how to lay a concrete slab..
Allow 1 day to build this shed, 2 people are required. We recommend downloading the Absco Sheds Assembly App to watch the assembly videos prior to installing.
Absco recommends using trestles and timber to keep your product off the ground to avoid any damage while installing. It also helps working at waist height to avoid bending over.
What is included in the box?
Each DIY shed comes with all components required to build along with a fittings pack that includes all screws, joiners and pop rivets. Each shed comes flat packed for cheaper shipping and easier handling. The Fortress shed also comes with downpipes and gutters as standard.

These Sheds are supplied without a floor and are best suited to be anchored with one of our anchor kits to a concrete slab. Alternatively if you are renting your property, plan to move it in the future or putting it onto another flat surface (grass, dirt, bricks or road base) you can fasten them to a temporary wooden base (e.g. railway sleepers buried in the ground) or using ground anchors.
