Homeowners who need a small shed, or a custom shed for their property should check out the range at Duratuf. The company makes kitset sheds designed to deliver for New Zealanders’ diverse needs. Their sheds are high quality and easy to assemble.

Duratuf has a range of high-quality steel or wood sheds for every situation. Their range covers small steel sheds designed for garden tools, through to cedar sheds that look great and are built to last. Their new Lifestyle Range is available in a wide range of colours, with a secure roller door and a timeless design.

Designed to meet the needs of a range of Kiwi lifestyles, the Duratuf Lifestyle Range is the ultimate in stylish, secure storage. With models such as Ponsonby, Marlborough, Kaipara and Fendalton, this range can suit high density suburban living to sprawling country estates. The extensive range will appeal to all types of homeowners.

Duratuf Lifestyle sheds have 0.4mm thick hi-tensile anti-rust steel. This makes the shed not only stronger, but looking better for longer. The new Duratuf Lifestyle Range can be accessorised with a plywood floor kit.  It is made from 15mm H3 plywood with ground treated H4 joists. It comes complete with galvanised nails and an attractive tread plate doorway flashing. For Ponsonby and Fendalton models the plywood floor sits inside the shed on the bottom plate. For Marlborough and Kaipara models the bottom plate sits on top of the floor, and waterproofing is achieved with a DPC membrane. Built to withstand New Zealand’s wild weather conditions the range has a full timber frame that adds strength and rigidity. 

Duratuf provides more than just the best garden sheds – they also offer provide detailed assembly instructions that are available for free. New Zealand’s Building code does not require building consent for single-storey detached buildings, so long as they do not exceed 10 square meters in floor area. The instructions provided by Duratuf are simple and easy to understand. Once the shed arrives, clients can easily look at the instructions, and round up the necessary tools and dive in to build it.

Duratuf sheds are designed and manufactured in Hamilton at a new purpose built facility in Te Rapa. Being a 100% New Zealand owned and operated company, they can also help clients customise sheds to suit their needs.
