By Palram, the 6ft x 8ft Skylight Plastic Shed offers an array of quality features, and the practicality of a plastic shed. The metal framing hosts polycarbonate panels, to give a maintenance free storage solution.

The magic of this shed (as with Palram's range of skylight sheds) comes in the polycarbonate panels. These are designed to withstand high impact collisions, as the force of such impact is absorbed through the elastic nature of the plastic. This combined with the facts that over time they won't discolour, fracture or rust makes it ideal for those looking for a long term, low maintenance storage solution. 

The design of the model is based on wooden sheds, through apex roof styling and mock horizontal log design to the exterior. The amber colouring also helps to maintain a natural feel to the shed.

The roof panels have been designed in such a way that whilst appearing opaque from the outside, inside they allow natural daylight to enter the shed providing you with a light source while your looking for the right tool or pot for your garden.

Review Summary - 4.2 out of 5 based on 23 ratings.
Sort reviews by:

Like previous reviewers my first thought as it unpacked it from the box was ‘flimsy’ but once the strength of the frame is tightened the shed is quite solid. I would recommend two person construction as until the frame starts to assemble the panelling can be quite tricky to manoeuvre. The rubber floor I would have preferred to be a bit thicker just to feel more robust underfoot and more solid for the anchor points. Once erected the height and space is good and the double door access is great. The skylight roof really does let plenty light in so nice feature. Overall, it looks good and the lack of maintenance is what’s most important to me. (The hinges and the door locking brackets should have more secure fixings as to access the shed you simply unscrew them! - padlock? - hence 4 stars).

This is the third time I've written a review because my original one was not posted. The shed looks good. Took two people to assemble it but it was straightforward enough. My husband is happy with it.

Delivery finally turned up. Instruction book is clear but check you have all the parts! Once assembled very sturdy product.

Finally assembled a year after purchasing. Done as a one man job with only the door frame side requiring multiple pairs of hands. A little pre-assembly advice of parts in the instructions would be helpful. Happy with my purchase.

The shed was relatively easy to put up as a two person job. Although the panels at first feel very flimsy, once braced and fitted they appear sturdy and hard wearing. The feature of the skylight gives the shed an all round brightness, and increased storage space as you can use all of the wall room without factoring in windows.
In comparison to a wooden shed I would hope this will be maintenance free and last for as long, if not longer, than the wooden variety, but time will tell.
All in all an excellent purchase which I am very pleased with.

The shed arrived within two days and at a great price. Installation was relatively easy, but the tight space meant that the roof had to be installed in a rather unconventional manner... The shed colour is nice, blending with our yellow brickwork and oak fencing. One thing that could be improved is the choice of sizes: a 6x9 would have fitted perfectly.

I was able to do some of the initial steps on my own, although it does require a two person operation for most of the construction. Assembly is quick and relatively easy, with the instructions taking you clearly through each step. Although initially appearing very flimsy, once constructed the shed looks and feels robust and solid. I have found that having the shed on a perfectly flat surface is vitally important. During the night the ground I had prepared had obviously settled, meaning that the doors are now a little difficult to close, but this hopefully should be resolved by levelling out the ground again.
The shed appears to offer good value for money in comparison to its rivals, and hopefully should give many years of service.

Relatively easy to put together, althought tight spacing made the roof a little difficult. Water-tight after heavy rain, so pleased with construction. Colour works in our garden and shed fits well beside the garage. I would like to to have had the choice of a 6 x 9 size as this would have filled the available space perfectly.

parts all numbered, instructions are good, roof could be more translucent

This shed was reasonably easy to put up with the help of my 2 daughters it was up in 6 hours. Once built it does seem sturdy even though the polycarbonate panels look flimsy out of the box but I am quite optimistic that it will last quite a while. The floor panels do not sit flat as other reviews have stated and have been a trip hazard more than once, it is a bit expensive for what it is and it doesn't have the solid feel of a wooden shed but overall I am pleased with it.

Good shed, it’s quite fiddly to put up and you definitely need two people but once it’s up and bolted to flags it’s quite sturdy.

December 28, 2018 | Richard Miller

It looks very nice when up, but I'm not sure it's as strong as it makes out. Rained hard and no leaks. You would be best having an electric screwdriver and you apparently need silicon or caulk for the seam on the roof joint. Light panels are good letting good light through in the day. Overall for the price I (my wife loves it) am pretty pleased now it's up. Time will telling it's durability.

Not as sturdy as I thought it would be. Not a nice brown either. Rather disappointed.

Palram SkyLight Plastic Amber Apex Shed 6X8

disappointed on:
1 - although having agreed a delivery date in advance the shed did not arrive as planned (the add on shelfs did!) . Had to escalate to get delivery 3 days later. Was not prompted by supplier .
2 - late delivery meant issues re availability of assembly resource
3 - key lower door frame component missing - quality control lacking
4 - dent in main roof ridge cross bar component - quality control lacking
5 - assembly is definitely a 2 person job
6 - not clear on purchase that assembled frame shed has to be bolted to the ground for security and safety as to not blow away (components not supplied)
7 - overall structure stands up well when all aluminium pieces connected though polycarbonate wall roof panels appear a little flimsy in the flesh compared to image given on assembly sales videos
8 - overall self assembly is a challenge and definitely not on a windy day of any kind unless many hands to hold in place
9 - should visit demonstration site to see product in flesh to understand what you are getting.
10 - neat design allows add shelves to be installed after main assembly

Palram SkyLight Plastic Amber Apex Shed 6X8

Great value for money shed. Seemed quite flimsy when unpacked but my husband and I spent an afternoon putting it together (and we are still speaking!!) and it is very sturdy once all together. Did watch online video re assembly which was really handy. Do read the instructions fully to make life easier, but would definitely recommend this shed.

Putting this shed together did take a little longer than we expected, but if you follow the instructions properly it's all straight forward. Once erected the shed feels very sturdy and looks great. I'm very pleased with it and would recommend it.
