About Our Shed Bases

Our environmentally friendly shed bases are manufactured in the UK from 100% recycled plastic. Owing to its unique formulation, our flexible but strong blend of recycled plastic makes every foundation both weather and UV resistant. Its resilience against the sun, heat and rain means that your shed base will not break down or rot over time which may be the case with more traditional foundations such as wood or concrete. With a specially designed cell structure our bases have a very large load baring capacity (up to 420 tonnes) as well as being fully permeable which means that rain and other liquids are able to drain away naturally from your garden building, reducing the chances of surface water being absorbed and potentially rotting your shed.
