The 8 x 16 Skylight Plastic Apex Shed in Dark Grey offers a fantastic amount of interior space for your garden, which has even seen some customers purchase it as a home workshop. Packed with excellent features, a Palram Plastic Shed is undeniably a smart purchase. Palram makes some of the best value sheds around, with just the right balance between quality and affordability. Plus, with a shed of this size, you have excellent flexibility over what you can use it for. The extra width on this 8ft version gives you the extra room you might need to use it as a workshop, or great flexibility if you want to store larger items. 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.

The shed 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 8 x 16 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.
