The Shed Company is proud to announce that our extensive range of steel kit sheds has achieved certification and accreditation under the ShedSafe program. ShedSafe sets the highest standard for Australian-manufactured steel sheds, subjecting the engineering plans and calculations provided by our consulting engineers to rigorous scrutiny.
This comprehensive review ensures that our shed designs align with the requirements of the Building Code of Australia, ensuring safety and quality. While the official rollout of the ShedSafe accreditation program is pending in New Zealand, rest assured that our pre-engineering processes adhere to the same principles that have made Fair Dinkum Sheds a trusted name in Australia and The Shed Company likewise in New Zealand.
Safety and Compliance
At The Shed Company, we prioritise safety above all else. As a family-owned business, we understand the importance of safeguarding your loved ones. With years of research, we've fortified our steel building kits to withstand the test of time and endure the harshest New Zealand climate and conditions.
Our pre-engineered designs offer inherent structural integrity as standard. Every structure from The Shed Company features extended purlin and girt overlaps, along with our unique rafter-over column haunch system. Each design is meticulously crafted to be "site-specific," considering factors such as wind region, shielding, importance level, terrain and topography, snow and earthquake loading. We assess each of these variables before designing and quoting your steel building, ensuring a solution that's tailored to your needs.
The Origins of ShedSafe
The genesis of ShedSafe can be traced back to Australia's unpredictable weather conditions, which highlighted the critical need for structural integrity in all buildings. Severe tropical cyclones exposed numerous buildings that failed to meet industry standards, prompting the Australian Steel Institute to take decisive action.
The result was the formation of ShedSafe, an industry accreditation program that assures customers that the steel buildings they invest in are fully compliant with the Building Codes of Australia. These same conditions apply to the New Zealand landscape meaning ShedSafe delivers a peace of mind that your shed or building will stand up to the weather conditions we know we will get.
