These fixings secure your shed to a slab base or concreted area. They fit through pre-drilled holes in shed's base rail. Kit supplied with masonry drill bit. These are included if shed installation is paid for.
Wooden Floor Kit
Comprises of pressure-impregnated treated tongue & groove boards and bearers. Includes nails for assembly and screws to screw through base rail of the shed into the wooden floor boards. Ideally the floor kit would be assembled on a flat, level slabbed or concreted area.
