Asgard Storage launches the Saracen Compact Garden Shed

Secured by Design (SBD) member company Asgard Secure Steel Storage has added a new shed to their SBD range - the Saracen, a compact 5x4 walk-in garden shed, offering SBD status, full-width access and an apex roof, tall enough to stand up in.

Chris Raby, Head of Engineering at Asgard, said: “The Saracen may look familiar from the front - it has all of the Centurion family's great features but is much smaller - only 5ft x 4ft. For me, the Saracen makes a great tool shed especially when kitted out with shelves across the back of the shed.”

What is the Saracen designed for?

The Saracen is designed for people with smaller gardens or limited space. Whilst it’s ideal for gardeners with easy access to wheelbarrows, pots, spades etc, its proportions are also fantastic for keen DIY’ers and trade professionals, who may need to store everything from a tall ladder to a lot of valuable smaller tools and equipment. All of this is made easier with the Saracen’s full-width rear shelves.

The Saracen garden shed is also now electric-ready with a grommet hole and electrical mounting plates to add power to the shed, helping charge tools while keeping them securely stored away.

Measuring 5ft wide x 4ft deep, this walk-in shed has an internal apex roof height of 6ft 6”, making it comfortable for most users to walk straight in.

What makes the Saracen Shed Secured by Design accredited?

The Saracen joins Asgard Storage’s collection of high-security sheds that are accredited by the UK Locksmith Association, Loss Prevention Certification Board level 1, and of course, Secured by Design (Police). The Saracen garden shed has all the same great features as their Annexe, Gladiator, and Centurion ranges including; a 5-point shrouded locking system that includes deadbolts, an EN1303-rated pick-and-drill resistant euro cylinder lock (tested to the highest level of durability, temperature and corrosion resistance), and a handle that is designed to shear off in an attempted attack, helping to prevent entry.

The secure garden shed is manufactured in the UK from reinforced galvanised steel and features strong welded hinges and an integral base for full 360-degree protection. For an extra layer of protection, all Asgard sheds can also be bolted to the ground to prevent any thieves from prying up the shed.  

Andy from Asgard commented: “Our high-security sheds have been called ‘bomb-proof’ and ‘tanks’ by customers for a reason! They do offer full protection for valuable tools, helping to deter and slow down any opportunist thieves. Cyclist Monica Dew had her Annexe SBD accredited shed aggressively attacked and we were glad to hear they didn’t get in - a great testament to our high-security sheds”.

Alfie Hosker, Secured by Design, said: “Asgard continue to develop and expand their storage range with these additions, which can fit several applications. It is testament to the quality and security of their products that they have once again achieved certification against the rigorous LPCB LPS1175 intruder attack test standard to demonstrate their security robustness”. 

Is the Saracen easy to put together?

The Saracen shed is easy to assemble and install, with fully illustrated step, by step instructions though Asgard do offer a full installation service. See the installation team build the Saracen here 

What colour option are available?

The Saracen range of sheds are available in three colours - contemporary grey, natural forest green, or light cream / ivory to complement all garden designs. Durable and long-lasting, this all-metal shed is designed and made here in the UK. Delivered free to most of the UK mainland and supplied with a 10-year anti-perforation warranty.
