            The 6 x 8 Skylight Plastic Apex Shed in Grey 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 grey colouring is commonly chosen by customers looking for a more modern 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.

            By Simon on 27th March 2021
            "when you first get this 6x8 shed in a moderately sized box you think surely not, you take out a few bits and start to think you've been royally had over for the price of it, albeit cheap from Elbec. so you start putting it together the extruded aluminium manufacturing is pretty good, and once you start sliding the extremely flimsy panels into the aluminium supports and start fixing it all together you slowly come round to realising its not to bad. I.E never have to paint or look after, as others have said read instructions over and over, it was breezy when I did it but needed only some help from partner. Doors are noisy obviously if left open and what I'm mostly worried about is if the side panels will rattle lots in moderate winds annoying the neighbours? as also said really disappointed with the base as its just polycarbonate on concreate so makes crunchy noises when walking over if it would have been a solid rubber base would have been so much better, plus it needs covering with rubber, carpet, wood, whatever to make walking on it safe. overall I'm still in two minds if i should have got wood for about same price, I'm lazy so in long run plastic probably better. obviously only being ally supports most people will be racking this out as you wouldn't/couldn't hang anything on the plastic or supports without a decent wooden subframe inside, which is cheap and easy to do. eventually sides may need siliconing up to remove rattling and after 1st rain pour i can confirm 99.9% water proof as some blew in where where side panel meets upturned base/floor, again some remedial strips of ally along the outside or whatever is at hand will finish off where it meets the ground. if I wasn't lazy for the upkeep of wood i'd buy a wooden shed, but being grey. maintenance free etc etc this isn't a bad spend, guessing it could be a lot cheaper though for what you get."

            "Purchased what I was hoping to be a no maintanance shed, which was replacing my wooden shed. It has not dissapointed. The structure although looks at 1st sight flimsy is both strong and durable when put together. It as a little tricky if like me not great at DIY, but is achievable with a bit of patience and time. Allow a day to put up! but once up, the design, quality and strangth is far superior to my wooden shed....so now I can sit back and enjoy my maintanance free shed for years to come....would definately recommend this product, but a little tip is rely on the instructions but also watch a viseo on youtube to assist"

Assembly of the shed is really easy, but as suggested, needs two people to keep it steady during assembly. Once completed it is really sound and secure.

            "let down by missing screws The delivery time of the plastic shed was acceptable considering the issues caused by Corona virus. Husband managed to erect the shed on his own with just a bit of help from myself holding panels together while he screwed. The shed is a bit flimsy but adequate for our needs and looks good from the outside. I would have scored an extra star but there are some screws missing and we are concerned that should we get windy weather the shed could blow down and possibly blow away. I have emailed elbec several times and phoned them but no sign of the screws. I was told they were despatched 6 days ago. I appreciate corona virus is causing issues but I am only waiting for 10 screws that could be sent in normal post Hi Susan Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry we understand how frustrating it must be. It had been actioned and Palram should by now be in touch with you directly to resolve as quickly as possible. Kind regards elbec garden buildings"

            "Pros - The skylight roof is amazing - it lets in much more light than the glass windows in the side of a wooden shed. The shiny finish inside is nice, and from the outside the shed looks very smart. Overall, the build was fairly straightforward, and most of the instructions were clear and simple. Cons - Some of the instructions only make sense once you’ve made a mistake and re-read them with the benefit of hindsight. The three sections of the floor do not click together or seal, so there are gaps to trip over or loose small items into. (I’ll be laying a rubber floor covering to resolve this). Overall - It’s a good shed, but you really do need to take the time to study the instructions, and make sure your base is perfectly flat and level. Also, a socket wrench will make things a lot easier than using a spanner! "
