Outstanding Weatherproofing

Duratuf's waterproofing pedigree is legendary! The 'No Leaks' roof system is unique to Duratuf, and the timber frame means no flashings at the bottom of the wall that might trap water and cause corrosion. Click the icons to find out more

One Piece 'Press-Bent' Roof

The innovative 'Press-bent' gable roof design is a brilliant design that is, "toot-toot", unique to Duratuf Garden sheds. You see, the less joins there are, the less opportunity for leaks! Its quite simple actually, but you will only find it on a Duratuf. Remember, less joins means less leaks.

Gutter for Water Control

When the rain hits the roof, it's got to go somewhere. So, instead of our sheds being designed to trap the water on the roof (like others do), we decided to use special Duratuf gutters to let the water flow off the roof. The gutter then directs the water away from the door area.

Extra Thick Hi-Tensile Steel Cladding

When it comes to steel cladding, we aren't trying to go as thin as possible. It's just not the Duratuf way. Duratuf full timber framed sheds have 0.4mm thick hi-tensile anti-rust steel. That's up to 60% thicker than some competitors, meaning that it's not only stronger, but your shed will stay looking better for longer!

30 Year Steel Warranty

When buying a garden shed, it is important to have peace of mind that it is going to stay looking good for a long time. That is why we guarantee the integrity of out steel cladding for 30 years. And, being a NZ Manufacturer, we are here for you in the unlikely event that you have a problem with your cladding. Conditions apply.

Shed Lighting Options

Lighting and ventilation can be important if you are spending time in your garden shed. Natural light from clear roof panels or windows are the perfect option. And if all else fails, simply switch on the solar shed light! Click on the icons to see the options.

Louvre Window

Need ventilation AND light? Choose a louvre window! Comes complete with an aluminium louvre mechanism and the glass panes to fit. Unlike other shed windows, the Duratuf window kit includes extra framing for the inside to make it rigid and secure.

Window

The Duratuf fixed window is the best way to get natural daylight into your garden shed. Place the window closest to where you will be wanting the light. The fixed window comes complete with the glass window pane and extra timber framing.

Clear Roof Panel

A Clear Roof Panel provides uninterrupted UV free daylight which is perfect for a workshop situation. For gable roof sheds, you can choose from single side or double side options depending on your requirements. Note; Clear panels may condensate more than steel roofing.

Solar Light

The perfect complement to your garden shed if you need to go and fossick around in the dark. The solar panel mounts easily on the roof facing the sun and the 10 LED light has a magnetic back to adhere to the steel cladding. Simple to fit as it requires no mains power.

Gable roof
Lean to

Your Choice Of Gable Roof or...

Kiwi gable sheds have roof sheets that are press-bent in the middle to eliminate the centre join. This ingenious design means that the roof sheet spans from one side of the shed to the other without any joins at the gable. This gives the Kiwi shed added strength and rigidity as well as being exceptionally weatherproof.

Lean-To Roof

The sloping roof design means that water runs off to the rear. This is ideal when used against a fence so that the water run-off is away from the door area. The mono-pitch roof looks clean and modern. The Fortress range has lean-to roof as standard on all of it's models.
