Flexible & Super Strong

PALRAM SkyLight™ Shed panels are flexible and super strong. The polycarbonate used is one of the strongest materials available, as you can see from the video below: 


Quality Construction

PALRAM Polycarbonate panels are made from the strongest materials available on the market. Polycarbonate sheets are flexible and very easy to carry, yet retain high quality and strength for many years, without changing its color or shape. It is very light, easy to handle, and completely safe. DIY installation is easy due to the straightforward step-by-step assembly instructions. The manufacturer offers a 10-Year warranty on this model, however despite coming with a padbolt (ready to accept a padlock), this shed isn't really designed to be highly secure, therefore you should consider additional security measures if storing valuable items.

Palram sheds are maintenance free and washable. Unlike wooden or metal sheds that may be damaged from rust, rot, peel, colour fading and excessive weather wear and tear, Palram’s Skylight Shed require zero attention and are cost effective – no painting or surface treatment are needed.


6ft and 8ft wide Palram Skylight™ sheds are fitted with double doors as standard. 4ft wide models are fitted with a single door is fitted to the gable of the shed, and can be hinged to the right or the left depending on your preference.

The Palram Skylight™ plastic shed comes with a padbolt ready to accept a padlock (not supplied), however this shed isn't designed to be highly secure. If you intend to store high value items, we recommend that additional security measures are in place.

Reviewer: Gary and Alison Thompson from Wigan   

So disappointed in these sheds (bought 2) at £900 each the quality is very flimsy and will definitely not stand up to British weather. Panels are extremely thin. Would not recommend as they are not substantial or fit for purpose.

Reply: Please don't worry... These buildings are EXTREMELY STRONG. The framing is made from high quality aluminium which won't rist, and the panels are made from UNBREAKABLE POLYCARBONATE which are designed to flex. There have been many thousands of Palram buildings sold in the UK, and they will last for many years.

Reviewer: Rob Hastings from N. Ireland   3 Stars

I purchased a Palram SkyLight Apex Shed 8 x 12 (amber colour). I chose it because I needed a fairly large storage space to fit a concrete base that I’d had made in my garden. I also wanted a shed which was low maintenance. With its tough polycarbonate panels, the Palram fits the bill in that regard, as I won’t ever need to show it a paintbrush. The design of the Palram shed is also attractive and looks well in the garden setting in the amber colour I chose.

One of its best selling points for me is the translucent roof, which magically lets light into the shed interior while looking like a regular dark-coloured shed roof from the outside. The shed also seems to hold in any warmth from the sunshine, suggesting to me that anything I put in there is unlikely to get damp, especially if silicone is applied all around the area where the floor meets the bottom of the shed.

Unfortunately, I do have several criticisms about the shed, mainly with regard to assembling it. Firstly, I’d advise anyone to only attempt to build this structure in weather conditions that are calm and almost totally devoid of anything but the lightest breeze.

Prior to purchasing the shed, I watched a video of two men building a Palram with apparent ease. This was not my experience and somewhat misleading in my opinion. You do definitely need at least two people, as any wind can start to lift your partly-constructed shed as if it were a sail, especially once you’ve started putting the polycarbonate panels in place. This is a particular problem with a shed as large as the 12 x 8 model, given that it does not come with a plastic floor to hold the base of the framework together, unlike the smaller models.

The instruction manual also leaves something to be desired in terms of clarity in places. I couldn’t help thinking at times how much easier it would be if the instructions had been made from photographs rather than line drawings, but I imagine the manufacturers are trying to keep costs low. Unfortunately that leaves the poor customer to comprehend the not-always-clear illustrations.

The quality of the parts provided was generally good, though several of the aluminium parts came slightly bent in places. I also felt that some of the plastic parts, like the components which join the threshold at the shed door to the rest of the frame, should really have been made of metal, as they have to take a considerable strain, especially until the shed is anchored into its final position. To be fair, the manufacturers did replace several of these parts when they broke.

The shed’s relative lightness made me look into getting extra securing points put around the bottom to ensure it stays put in windy conditions and doesn’t end up like Dorothy’s home at the beginning of ‘The Wizard of Oz’!

I was also helpfully advised by A1 Sheds of an anchoring kit that is available if you wish to strap the shed down from the outside.

In summary, the shed really does look attractive, has a maintenance-free advantage over wooden sheds and features a brilliant roof design that allows daylight inside without the need for windows. On the downside, it is not easy to assemble and several of the plastic parts should really be made of metal for better robustness.
