Guardian Range Garden Sheds

Economy and quality fused together! Our innovative Semi-Timber frame design provides much of the same strength and weatherproofing benefits as our Full-Timber range, but at a price that offers market leading value for money.

Tougher with Timber

Semi Timber Fram Render v2

Stronger Semi Timber Frame

A shed without a timber frame is like a human without a backbone. So to create a shed that stands up to New Zealand's harsh environment, without being harsh on the pocket, we've used 'timber where it counts'. This design philosophy combined with streamlined manufacturing processes allows us to offer a range of garden sheds that are a step above the rest in value for money.

Anti-Rust Hi-Tensile Steel Cladding

Unlike other cheaper garden sheds, Duratuf Guardian garden sheds are made with hi-tensile steel covered in a multi-layer protective coating. Meaning it is not only stronger, but will stay looking better for longer!

20 Year Steel Cladding 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 our steel cladding for 20 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.

Semi Timber NZ made v3

Proudly Made in New Zealand

All Duratuf garden sheds are manufactured by the dedicated, hardworking team here at our Hamilton factory. We take pride in every shed we build, so you can trust that you'll get a level of quality and service that is truly unmatched. Please buy New Zealand made and keep your country pumping.  

Water Run off v2

Advanced Water Run Off

As with all buildings, it is important that water flows away from your garden shed. Trapped water can potentially allow water ingress and then ultimately, corrosion of the steel cladding. Unlike many other sheds, Duratuf Guardian sheds do not have steel channels at the base of the wall. This allows water to drain away unimpeded.

Semi timber door and a half v2

Easy Access Door and a Half System

The innovative ‘door-and-a-half’ system on Guardian gable roof garden sheds creates a practical extra wide door for everyday use. When you need to load those bigger items such as motorbikes and ride-on mowers, simply open the half door too.

Semi Timber Easy Assembly v3

Easy 4 Step Assembly

Our Guardian garden sheds are a doddle to put together if you're up for it, but we do have assembly services available should you want to let somebody else do the hard yards.
