Description

Would you like to protect your bicycle against the long-term damage caused by the elements? This well-build and affordable bike store, from reputable garden building manufacturer Mercia, offers a reliable place to keep up to two adult bikes outdoors. A durable timber cladding that is more often found in high-quality garden sheds is utilised to great effect, as our deep dive into the features of this product hopes to outline below! If you need a straightforward solution to bicycle storage, this model will do the job without encroaching on your precious garden space.

Features

This bike store may be compact, but it features many details to ensure it is an ideal place for storing bicycles throughout the year. For example, a set of double doors means that you won't need to awkwardly struggle when placing bikes inside. These doors feature a hasp and staple style door catch that is padlock-ready in case you would like to make your store more secure in case of theft by adding your own padlock.

In its aesthetic sensibilities, this model evokes the look of traditional garden sheds, with an apex roof that uses mineral felt and a decorative finial. This will bring some rustic charm to any garden, as will the 7mm overlap timber cladding that is often found in Mercia's fully fledged garden sheds. This high-quality cladding uses horizontal timber pieces that are each angled and overlapped to maximise the run-off of rainwater. All timber used is FSC certified – meaning it is sourced from sustainable forests – and is dip-treated for a good level of initial protection from the potential threats of rot or insect infestation. We strongly recommend taking the time to protect your timber further once the bike store is assembled at home, by applying a high-quality wood preservative such as those found in the Protek range that are available for order through elbec.

In the case of the 3 x 7 Mercia Overlap Apex Bike Store's roof and floor, a rugged oriented strand board is utilised for its excellent water resistance and overall strength. Firmly holding these various elements together is internal framing that uses 28mm x 28mm timber.

Additional Information

Every bike store has already been treated with a water-based timber treatment for the necessary level of protection from rot and insect infestation during transit. To receive the full benefits of the 10-year anti-rot guarantee that Mercia offers with this product, elbec recommends applying a high-quality wood preservative such as those found in the Protek range, available for order with the bike store. As well as giving you the fun option to customise the colour of your bike store, Protek's products will help protect your timber from the effects of weathering. Be sure to read the full details of the care instructions provided by Mercia to understand how to retain the coverage for the duration of the guarantee period.
Full assembly instructions are provided with the bike store, which will arrive in a disassembled state with all of the parts and fixtures needed to complete the structure. We always recommend enlisting the help of a handy friend to make the assembly process run more smoothly. It is reasonable to expect the bike store to take one or two afternoons to put together, depending on your prior experience of similar projects.

Key Features

  • Double doors are ledged and braced for improved strength, and open wide to allow easier access of items
  • Traditional apex roof that features protective mineral felt and a decorative diamond-shaped finial
  • 7mm cladding using FSC certified timber that horizontally overlaps to help
  • 8mm oriented strand board utilised for roof and floor

  • Low height is suited to bicycles and will not loom over the surrounding area
  • 28mm x 28mm internal framing using equally robust timber

"Excellent products for the price ranges, and great customer service
I ordered two sheds from Elbec, which came from two separate companies. The prices were the most competitive I found. Delivery was without a problem, quality totally acceptable (these were a bike shed and a workshop) and the instructions simple enough for me to use (never built one shed before...) When complete even my builder was surprised by how well I'd done (OK, my three small children and a teenager helped - but it's not rocket science...) Just ordered several more sheds (big garden) and the customer service was excellent, highlighting a better product for less money.
