The Rowlinson Tongue and Groove Apex Security Shed is an ideal choice if you need a durable storage solution.


For a robust construction, the Rowlinson Tongue and Groove Apex Security Shed features a solid board roof and 12mm shiplap cladding and framing. The hinged double doors allow easy access to larger items such as garden furniture and lawnmowers, and the tongue and groove floor helps to support these heavier items. Not only does the apex roof make an attractive feature, but it also offers extra headroom and storage space, so you can comfortably retrieve your items. The Rowlinson Shed has a dipped honey-brown finish which is sure to blend in with any traditional garden. Designed with security in mind, the Rowlinson Shed features a single window high on the gable end to keep your garden equipment safe from prying eyes, a welcome feature, especially on an allotment. The double doors have security hinges and a padlock protector to which you can attach your own padlock, allowing you to further secure your shed’s contents.

Made from timber that has been pre-treated with a water based timber treatment for protection during transit only. In order to activate the stated guarantee, it is necessary that you treat the garden building with a high quality, water-based, timber preservative prior to or immediately after construction. This will protect the timber from weathering and will need to be repeated accordingly in relation to the manufacturer’s instructions.  Here at elbec we would recommend our Protect Royal paint which is supplied in many different colours (click here to view the range).


The Rowlinson Tongue and Groove Apex Security Shed comes with a 10 year guarantee against rot, so you can be confident that the building will last. It is supplied with all fixtures and instructions to assemble it yourself. We recommend it is anchored to a pre-laid and level foundation of concrete, flagstone, or timber. Please follow the instructions carefully.
