The 7 x 3 Absco Pent Metal Shed in Grey from Mercia is cleverly designed to take up minimal space in your garden while offering plenty of storage. It could even fit at the side of your house, in an alleyway or in a tight corner thanks to its design. As a metal shed, it boasts the huge advantage that it requires minimal maintenance during its lifetime. That means no yearly treatments, no painting and no running repairs. Simply wiping the shed down occasionally and removing and debris from on or around it should be more than enough to keep it at its best.

Superior quality, 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 Grey 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.   

A pent roof adds to the slightly more contemporary feel of the Absco Metal Shed and ensures effective water run off. A generous ridge height for a shed of this size ensures that you will gain a surprising amount of additional storage from a garden building with such a compact footprint. The shed can be locked by attaching your own padlock to the sliding padbolt, so you can secure its contents.

Many metal sheds you will find on the market are notoriously fiddly 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 the case, a metal shed could be ideal, though we do recommend that you double check with all the relevant authorities before any purchase.

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 is supplied flat packed with instructions and all the fixings that are required to complete assembly. You can also choose to have your shed constructed quickly and correctly by our expert team of fitters if you would prefer.

Base Information

The 7 x 3 Mercia Absco Pent Metal Shed does not come with a floor and it must be anchored firmly to a suitable base. We recommend it is anchored 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.

The estimated delivery lead time for this product is identified on the product page above. Lead times are in working days (Monday - Friday) excludes Bank Holidays. These estimated lead times are provided by the manufacturers and are not guaranteed - due to fluctuation in demand - but are provided in good faith and are representative of delivery at that time. Some remote areas will take a little longer.

Upon Delivery

Your order is delivered either kerbside or driveway and will be delivered on a 17 ton lorry (the size of a Refuse Cart).

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.
