Palram's 6x5 Skylight Plastic Anthracite Shed provides you with a robust, straight forward to assemble and maintenance free space to store your indoor and outdoor items and equipment. 

The maintenance free nature of the product makes it a preference for those who do not wish to continue retreating their sheds. With virtually unbreakable, high impact polycarbonate panels and rust resistant aluminium framing adding additional strength to the structure, you can be sure your outdoor items will be safe and secure.

The roof and side polycarbonate panels provide 100% UV blocking protection, ensuring anything you store isn't going to be damaged by the sun's rays. The panels that make up the roof allow for light to transmit into the shed, giving you a light source for when you can't find what your looking for. Externally, the roof panels still retain an opaque appearance, so privacy is assured.

Well, you wouldn't want to erect this shed on a windy day that's for sure. Its very lightweight. However, once built I think it will be ok.

Not enough screws sent.
A bag of stuff not sent.
Manual is an absolute nightmare to read

Overall I am very pleased, assembly wasn't too bad only fiddly bit was the front small side panels where the doors hinge to as the didn't slide into the corner frames so you had to hold them upright whilst screwing in the internal corner brackets. If these had of slotted in it would have been a lot easier.

Not received shed don't no wot it is like

This is a great shed, can in no time and was fairly easy to assemble (even with a few gusts of wind). It is spacious and the double front doors make access to everything very easy. It also looks great too.

It's a good looking shed, took around 5 hours to build with help of another person
Panels are tough but are very flimsy. Once the shed was complete, which was done as per the instructions, i noticed that after securing it to the concrete flat slabs i noticed the doors moved out of line so closing the doors i have to lift the right side door up so i could thread the bolt through to the other side. I have added an alarm for the inside because the doors feel like i could kick them inwards with force to open them if i wanted to. Also had to seal the bottom panels to the floor because i could see a bit of daylight through the bottom and and was worried that water could get in
Are they worth the money? wouldn't pay over £300 again cos it is too flimsy to be honest.

Had it for 2 weeks so i will see how it stands up to high winds and heavy rain

Excellent quality and very good value for money

easily put together by 2 people in an afternoon.

A bit wobbly until all parts are assemble but then very sturdy.

Parts well labelled and spare fixings if required which is rare in my experience.

This shed was a bit of a courageous purchase. I do not know anyone with a plastic shed. I have to say that it is fantastic. Maintenance free is a big winner. Easier to put up than I thought, I checked out a few of the youtube videos beforehand, the space and light inside is marvellous. Cannot recommend this enough. Well done Garden Street for a great price and well done Palram for a great product.

Great value for money, a fairly straight forward build but ideally needs 3 people to put up. The skylight roof feature is great as it let’s in lots of light so doesn’t require any lighting or use of a torch to find things inside. Easy to keep clean.

Fabulous shed that will not need any maintenance. It was a little flimsy to build on a slightly windy day, but with two people working on it, it only took an afternoon to build. The stability of the shed improved as soon as the cube shape was completed. I particularly love the skylight feature of this shed.

Extremely happy with my Palram 6x5 shed. Was built in an afternoon, and now feels perfectly sturdy. I particularly love the skylight feature.

Extremely happy with my Palram 6x4 shed. Arrived promptly, and after watching a YouTube video on how to build, the instructions seemed easy. Between myself and my mother, we had it built in an afternoon.
The skylight roof is a perfect compliment to the shed, to allow light in, without having windows.

May 22, 2019 | Tania Fright


Shed arrived promptly, I was extremely surprised at how small and compact the packaging was.
Unpacking and checking all parts was easy, and finding a video of how to build on YouTube first, helped understand the instructions easily, and building was overly simple after that.
The shed feels flimsy as you are building, and you definitely need a 2nd person to hold parts upright until it becomes a cube, but once all 4 walls are erected, it is very stable. It must be built on an exactly level surface, otherwise the doors may not open and close easily, but putting a wedge under one corner rectified this simply.
Value for money - it is very early to say, as I have only had it built for a week, the value comes from longevity, however, with no maintenance, I am hopeful that this will be great value. I am also hopeful that this will not have condensation like my metal shed. I do like the skylight feature of the shed, as windows for daylight just wouldn't work in the location I have it positioned.

Overall, I am extremely happy with my Palram Skylight shed.

It was easy to put up and once up and fastened down quite sturdy.
On the whole a good shed for price paid .

We assembled the shed within 4 hours using just the instructions, at times it is a little tricky and definitely requires 2 people.
Once finished we were pleased with the end product, the roof is semi translucent and let's good light in on the inside.

Tricky to erect because the panels are very flexible - definitely a two person task - but became much more sturdy and stable once the corner fixings were fitted. Looks good and has already withstood heavy rain and gales without a problem (though we did choose to bolt it down to the foundation in case). The double doors, translucent roof and low-line door threshold are all welcome features. Looking decent value for money so far.

Decent value for money; looks good; double doors a distinct advantage; appears weatherproof (though not yet subject to torrential rain and gales); well ventilated; relatively secure once padlocked (though I seriously doubt the video claims that no damage results from striking with a hammer or baseball bat).

As per other reviews, the panels are somewhat flimsy but the whole structure becomes much more rigid when the corner brackets are in place. Definitely needs two people to erect the 6x5 version, maybe 3 on a windy day, and I recommend reading the instruction manual carefully before starting out. All in all, quite satisfied with the end product - much superior to our previous wooden unit.

Shed arrived on time. Have now installed it and it looks good.
Shed is a little flimsier than I imagined.
There was 2 problems ,the supplier did not supply one of the correct parts required for the doors. I phoned Palram Customer Service who said that they would send me the correct part, however as I had nearly completed the shed, I modified the incorrect part to suit and completed the installation of the doors. Most of the aluminium frame components had some damage and had to be straightened before use.As yet I have not heard from Palram and have resolved the problems myself.

November 18, 2018 | John Reddy

Very flimsy. Took forever to put up and doesn’t feel very good quality. Lots of panels slightly the wrong size which makes putting together harder. Took two of us two afternoons, until you get to the roof you ideally need three people to hold everything together.
Looks good once up but feels flimsy still. Thought the panels would be more rigid.
Wouldn’t buy again.

a bit flimsey needed some modifications which cured assembly problems

October 29, 2018 | Stephen Humphrey

Great Shed. The instructions supplied are a little poor but watching a video online made it easier to put together. Defiantly a 2 person job putting it up. I recommend writing the part numbers on scrap paper by the parts laid out on the floor to make it easier.

A Good company to deal with arrived on time

Thank you

Palram SkyLight Plastic Anthracite Apex Shed 6X5

Hard to assemble. Online videos on youtube helped us to built it. Sides are fragile so you have to pay attention not to bend any panel which are very wobbly! It looks nice but you can't put anything on the walls as they extremely thin. It is an ok product but i wouldn't recommend it. I would probably pay more next time and get a wooden one.

Palram SkyLight Plastic Anthracite Apex Shed 6X5

Awful to put up, holes not in the right place. Because it was a bit windy when we erected it the shed moved right across driveway so we were trying to keep panels in place whilst adding more panels , the bar which shuts the shed is so flimsy and on the inside the bars to shut one-off the doors is very flimsy. Wished I'd paid a bit more and got a better one. I do. Or. Onside theses sheds worth the money.

Palram SkyLight Plastic Anthracite Apex Shed 6X5

Excellent product with clear easy to follow instructions. Can be assembled by one person but ideally requires 2 as some panels were large and not wieldy. Looked superb on completion!
