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
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.
Popular steel colours
We offer a variety of colours that are popular for steel cladding in the New Zealand marketplace, so it is easy to find the right colour to suit your property.
Classic unpainted steel finish
Popular deep black colour
A deep brown/charcoal named after the sand commonly found on west coast beaches
Contemporary pale green common for roofing
Sandy colour great for coastal locations
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.
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.
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.
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.
Timber Floor Kit
Designed to fit snugly inside your Semi-Timber framed shed, the floor kit includes all materials and fixings needed for easy installation.
Clear Roof Panel
Duratuf Clear Roof Panels provide UV free natural daylight inside your shed. Perfect for if you're using your shed for a workshop and need light while the door may be closed. For gable shed models you can choose from either single side or both sides of the roof. Please note that clear roof panels may condensate more than a steel roof during cold weather.
Bolt Down Kit
If your shed is to be attached to a concrete floor or base, the Bolt Down Kit allows you to securely anchor your shed without damaging either your concrete pad or the timber frame of the shed. The kit consists of hot dipped galvanised steel brackets, with Dynabolts to anchor into the concrete floor and screws to attach to the bottom frame.
Peg Down Kit
The Duratuf peg down kit is perfect for anchoring your garden shed on ground such as grass, dirt or metal. The 6 x H5 treated pegs are driven into the ground and screwed to the bottom plate with the stainless steel screws provided. A timber floor kit can then be fitted over the top if required.
