The 10 x 7 Mercia Absco Premier Metal Shed in Zinc is a robust, galvanised steel shed that offers an impressively spacious inside and looks fantastic in any garden. If you need somewhere to keep items like gardening tools or bicycles but never want to encounter the common issues of timber sheds (such as warping, splitting, or rot) this metal shed may be an exciting find. The construction of this shed ensures you will never need to repaint it or add further protection from the elements, and it has achieved stability even at high wind speeds.


Extremely strong and high-tensile “Bluescope Steel” is used in the construction of Absco products, which is more durable, rigid and robust than the material used for many other metal sheds. A Zinc coloured “Colorbond” paint layer adds extra durability to the shed’s exterior and is a popular colour choice, especially in more modern gardens, but will also blend harmoniously in a range of garden settings. The materials used in this shed ensure that you won't need to worry about yearly treatments, painting, or repairs; simply wipe down the shed on occasion to keep it at its best. A 30-year guarantee against rust and corrosion provides you with assurance that your shed will last for years and years to come.

The shed can be locked by attaching your own padlock to the sliding padbolt on the hinged single door, so you can secure its contents. The door is braced for extra strength and security. The high ridge height of the reverse apex roof ensures users have plenty of headroom and offers plenty of flexibility in terms of the items that can be stored.

Many metal sheds you will find on the market are notoriously frustrating to construct; however, every effort has been made with the Absco range of sheds to ensure that assembly is as straightforward as possible. Its SNAPTiTE assembly system makes every panel fit together tightly and with relative ease, while using far fewer screws than similar metal sheds in this price bracket. Pre-punched holes also speed up the installation process and make assembly easier. The edges are even rolled for extra safety when handling and constructing your product.

Many customers choose a metal shed because they are fire retardant. In caravan parks, holiday parks and campsites, for example, fire regulations require storage that is non-combustible. If this is a case, a metal shed could be ideal, though we do recommend that you double check with all relevant authorities before any purchase. The shed is supplied flat packed with instructions and all the fixings that are required to complete assembly. If you would prefer, you can also choose to have your shed constructed quickly and correctly by our expert team of fitters.

Base Information

The 10 x 7 Mercia Absco Premier Metal Shed in Zinc does not come with a floor and it must be anchored firmly to a suitable base. We recommend anchoring it to a pre-laid and level foundation of concrete, flagstone or timber. Please follow all instructions carefully. A shed anchor kit is available to purchase on this page. Make sure you include the correct number of anchor kits for your chosen size of building.

This shed requires two anchor kits to secure the shed in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. Anchor kits can be purchased as optional accessories or can be sourced from most well-stocked DIY stores.

Booking Delivery

You will be required to book your delivery date at the time of placing your order (except for Metal Shed). Our 'Request a Delivery Date' service is available to the majority of areas and you'll find that the majority of the UK postcodes are FREE but some areas may incur a delivery surcharge and some postcodes are not covered at all. Select a 'requested delivery date' by entering your postcode in the 'Request a delivery date' section above. You will also be notified at this time if your area incurs a surcharge or delivery is not covered in your area.

Prior to Delivery

On the morning of your delivery date, you'll be sent an update by text with an estimated 2-hour delivery slot (this update can only be provided where a mobile number has been supplied on the billing address section at the time of checkout) together with a link to the manufacturer delivery portal where you'll be able to track your order.

Please note: Mercia Metal Sheds ONLY - your order is delivered by a courier you will not be notified prior to the delivery. If you are not in on the day of the delivery you will be carded and asked to contact the courier to arrange a new mutual delivery date. The estimated delivery lead time for Mercia's Metal sheds is identified on the product for the metal shed. Lead times are on working days (Monday - Friday) excludes Bank Holidays. These estimated lead times are provided by the manufacturer. Some remote areas will take a little longer.

Upon Delivery

Your order is delivered either kerbside or driveway and will be delivered on either a 3.5T, 7.5T or 18T Lorry. Unfortunately due to health and safety and insurance liabilities the driver will not be able to take your goods around to the back of your property but may upon request place the product at the side of the house if there are no access or restriction issues. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product to an unsafe location. Unfortunately, we will not be able to go through your property.

We would recommend against arranging for a third party to install the building before it's been delivered and checked that all parts are present, as we cannot be held liable for any third-party costs.


Orders with Assembly 

The lead time for our installation option is around 12 weeks from the date of order. With the installation option, the majority of orders will have their delivery and installation on separate days; there will be a small number of orders which will have delivery and installation on the same day. You will be advised by the manufacturer's installation team which category your order falls into.

Depending on the installation option for your order, you will be contacted within the delivery timescale and given a date for either delivery/assembly on the same date or a separate date for delivery and assembly.

Customer Reviews

Write A Review
"Not for the faint hearted but worth the effort. Arrived in a fairly small but heavy box, unlike a wooden shed does not come pre assembled in any way. Quite flimsy until erected then very strong, would recommend, excellent shed but requires preparation and thought. Would buy again excellent value when compared with wooden equivalent."
