Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

How many panels do I need?

To calculate the number of panels you will need for your plastic shed base, you will need to multiply the length and width of your shed/shed footprint. For example, if your shed is 6 foot by 4 foot, you would multiply the two by each other to get a total of 24 panels. Each panel is 1 square foot.


How do I secure my shed to the base?


A lot of people have this worry, especially when installing a metal or plastic garden building. A lot of sheds are supplied with ground anchors which can be used and placed directly through the panels and into the ground. If ground anchors are not supplied with the shed, we sell anti-pull anchors on our website which can be used.


Will a plastic base take the weight of a large log cabin?


Our Plastic Shed Base panels have been tested to hold up to 420 tonnes per square meter so it will have no issues when it comes to holding a large cabin or garden building.


Which way up should my plastic base be installed?


The open cell side should be placed upwards to allow for the panels to be filled. The gravel retention struts need to be placed on the ground so that the gravel/soil will not be dispersed under the panels.


Do I need to secure my base to the ground?


This is optional, if you feel that you would like to secure your base further, we would recommend using the anti-pull ground anchors available on our site.
