The 6 x 8 Skylight Plastic Apex Shed in Amber is a spacious garden shed that provides plenty of extra storage for your garden at a fantastic price. It is packed with quality features that make sure it is a superb investment for your garden. Palram, the manufacturer, make some of the best value sheds around, offering a superb balance between affordability and quality. In short, there may be slightly cheaper sheds on the market, but they cannot compare to the durability and long lifespan of a Palram.

A shed of this size also provides a useful balance between space inside and how much room it will need in your garden. Although it is more than spacious enough for more serious storage needs, it is not an obtrusively large garden building, fitting comfortably in medium-sized or even smaller gardens. Whether you need somewhere for the family bikes, sheltered storage for your tools, or perhaps simply the existing storage spaces in your home are full to bursting, a 6 x 8 shed could provide the perfect solution. Undoubtedly, this size of shed is one that suits a wide variety of outdoor spaces with its versatile footprint. This version features an apex style roof, for a classic shed appearance and extra head room, and its amber colouring is commonly chosen by customers looking for a more traditional garden look.


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 8 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.

"It's a great shed that can be erected in a limited space. My only disappointment was with the instructions which are not clear and the poor printing of part numbers on the plastic sheets. My wife and I erected it but it did take about six hours. In the end we had a shed that looked exactly like the picture."

"Just finished building this 6x8ft skylight shed with my son. I kept an open mind when building this having been used to a wooden shed for many years. It’s rigidity comes when you start assembling the roof and increases as you progress. We found assembling the roof struts first then lifting onto the shed far easier than the guide suggested. Certainly pleased with the finished item. I just need several shelves now!!"

"Shed arrived 10 working days following order. As previously stated boxed item is very heavy and definitely requires 2 man lift.Easy build again requiring 2 people. Shed looks good & is sturdy once secured to ground. Pleased with purchase; only niggle did not receive any communication regarding delivery update resulting in package being delivered when no one home. "

"Arrived within 5 days after placing order, box is very heavy so requires 2 man lift when delivered - Have to protect your backs people!

Once you open the box do not be put off by the amount of parts, once you get going it all becomes apparent and if you get stuck just take a step back reread the instructions and all will become apparent.

The build defo requires 2 people, but i recommend 3 people especially when doing the sides (1 person to hold the sides whilst the 3rd person assemblies the front)

Once assembled this looks a great little product and really is sturdy."
