Using a tape measure which measures in feet and inches (if you only have a metric tape measure which gives you the sizes in metres or centimetres, you can follow this link to help convert the size into imperial) first measure across the width of your desired Plastic Shed Base area, making a note of the result. If your measurement is an "odd" measurement e.g. 5 feet and 4 inches, round up to the next whole foot, making 5'4" a rounded 6'.
With the tape measure, measure the length of the area to be covered by the shed base and make a note of the result.
Using a calculator (or your brainpower if you're super-smart!) multiply the two numbers together. E.g. 6' x 4' = 24 square feet. As our panels are nominally 1 square foot, this number gives you the number of panels you need to create your shed base. So a 6' x 4' shed will require a 24 panel shed base.
If you can't see a product on our website which matches your size requirements, you can simply purchase the number of panels necessary for your shed base area. To save you the trouble of looking for the product listing on the website, you can click here to take you there directly.
We are frequently asked by our customers if our shed bases can be combined to create a bigger area, which they can, however you need to be sure that you are selecting the right quantity and size of shed base kit. It's a very easy mistake to think that for your 12' x 8' shed you can simply purchase two 6' x 4' shed base kits. However if we do the maths, the problem quickly becomes clear:
12' x 8' = 96 square feet (96 panels)
6' x 4' = 24 square feet (24 panels)
2 x 24 = 48! Half of the amount needed for your base.
12' x 8' is also equal to FOUR 6' x 4' bases.
4 x 24 = 96
