The 6 x 12 Skylight Plastic Apex Shed in Grey offers space in abundance for your garden and is packed with excellent features that make it a smart purchase. Palram, the manufacturer, make some of the best value sheds around, offering a superb balance between affordability and quality. With a shed this large, you have excellent flexibility over what you can store inside. The 6ft width ensures that while a large shed, the footprint is not unmanageable, providing extra flexibility over where you can locate it. Whether you need serious space for large items of garden furniture, or simply need overflow storage from your home for bikes, toys and tools, this could be the ideal solution. The Dark Grey colouring is a popular choice in a more modern garden aesthetic, but also blends well with a variety of garden types.


It is constructed from polycarbonate panels built around a sturdy aluminium frame. These materials, although lightweight and easy to handle, come together to make a really sturdy building once erected. The other real advantage of polycarbonate is that it is exceptionally difficult to break or shatter, is waterproof and is very low maintenance, needing no treatment and only the occasional wipe down to keep it looking its best. The panels are even UV treated to prevent fading, discolouring or cracking over time.

An innovative slide and lock panel system makes constructing a Palram shed as straightforward as possible. The unique skylight roof panels allow in light whilst remaining “opaque” from the outside. In short, this means that light will enter your shed during the day to make finding things easy, but your belongings will remain safely hidden away from prying eyes. A sliding padbolt is supplied, to which you can attach your own padlock, allowing you to further secure your shed’s contents. Hinged double doors allow easy access, even for larger items that you wish to store.

Unlike many similar metal or plastic sheds, Palram sheds are supplied with a robust, “easy-grip” floor, keeping your belongings dry and preventing slips and falls when entering after wet weather. This should be anchored to a solid base, preferably concrete. Integrated ventilation encourages air circulation and will help to prevent the build up of condensation inside. This excellent package is protected by a 10 year manufacturer’s guarantee, giving ultimate peace of mind that this first-rate garden shed will last for years to come.

Additional Details

The 6 x 12 Palram Skylight Plastic Apex Shed is supplied flat packed with detailed instructions and all the fixings needed to complete assembly. For additional strength and weather resistance, it is highly recommended that this garden building is anchored down to a solid base. Make sure to follow any and all care and assembly instructions included to ensure your warranty remains valid.

"purchased a Palrams 12 x 6 plastic shed…
purchased a Palrams 12 x 6 plastic shed very pleased with it took a little while to assemble but instuctions good also online as well,a quick delivery in these difficult times thankyou elbec"

"Great looking shed. Plastic is a lot thinner than expected but very strong. All parts labeled well,hubby didn't watch video he followed written instructions. It took us about 4 hours to build as lots of parts. Myself and hubby are both short (under 5ft5) so would suggest 3 normal height adults needed as found it difficult at times. Do not build in even a slight wind as panels blow about whilst trying to construct. 3rd person is ideal to hold other panels whilst building the shed. "

"A stylish shed which when it comes seems flimsy but when assembled is quite Saturday. All the pieces are well engineered and fit without the need for adjustments. The skylight roof appears solid on the outside but inside it throws out sufficient light not to need an internal light. My only criticism is that they recommend sealant on the roof apex bar joints but do not supply it but overall I am well satisfied with it."

"Great size, poorer quality than expected.
We bought one of the 12x6 skylight plastic sheds. Initial delivery time good, arrived before expected. However, disappointed with floor and panel quality. It took 11 hours to erect with the most vague instructions even those parts that are numbered don’t always correspond to the pictures on the instructions, poor quality, and this was near impossible with just two people. There was also a very slight breeze which made it even harder as the panels would constantly blow around, you are always in fear of the panels snapping until you have the main struts in! However It is spacious and neat, but we will see how it fairs in the winter months. Not recommended."

"Palram Skylight shed 6 x 12
Delivery from Elbec was very quick, even considering the current Covid situation. Delivery straight to my chosen point in the garden which was appreciated. Two large boxes. I erected the shed in about 6 hours. It is amazing how, once constructed, the product is very sturdy and practical. Everything fitted together with ease, provided the instructions were carefully followed. I'm looking forward to filling it with my garden gear."
