When you buy a shed from a ShedSafe accredited builder, you know that you are getting the best and safest shed for your needs.

In a recent post on their website, Action Sheds Australia told consumers in no uncertain terms that they are putting themselves and their families at risk if they buy a substandard shed. The post implored readers to be careful where they purchase their sheds, and to always purchase from a seller that is accredited by ShedSafe.

Action Sheds Australia is accredited by ShedSafe, and the company is a big believer in ShedSafe accreditation. They offer a full line of storage sheds, commercial sheds, industrial sheds, machinery sheds, farm sheds, and barns, and every shed they build is built to ShedSafe standards.

ShedSafe accreditation is a two-tiered process. Not only must the manufacturer be accredited, but the seller must also be accredited. For the manufacturer to be accredited by ShedSafe, they are reviewed by an independent third party, who ensures that the plans, structural calculations, and engineering principles are compliant with ShedSafe standards. The manufacturer must also produce documentation that they went through the process.

The seller’s accreditation process includes training that teaches and qualifies them to use information supplied by the customer to recommend the correct shed. The seller inputs criteria such as the intended use, distance of the site from the coastline, possibility of extreme weather, surrounding terrain, angular orientation of the site, and other structures near the shed site.

The seller then uses ShedSafe’s algorithm to calculate the maximum wind speed for the site, and uses it to recommend a shed design. This ensures that the consumer is protected, and that the shed a customer buys is the correct shed for their use and site characteristics.

The purpose of the two-tier accreditation process is to ensure that the consumer buys a safe shed, and that the seller is educated and qualified to recommend the right shed for the right site criteria. The process allows consumers to feel secure that everyone involved in engineering, manufacturing, building, and selling their shed has been accredited through ShedSafe.

The post on the Action Sheds Australia website explains the accreditation process, and walks the reader through the steps of getting a quote from a ShedSafe certified seller. The post goes on to explain to consumers why they became ShedSafe accredited and why they think consumers should always buy a shed from a ShedSafe accredited seller.

Max Italiano, Owner of Action Sheds Australia, is very firm in his commitment to safety: “We may appear to be in the business of selling sheds, but we’re really in the business of helping people. We have seen a lot of companies selling substandard sheds, and we wanted to ensure that we only provide the safest and best sheds on the market. ShedSafe accreditation is a great way to do just that.”

Italiano continued, “In a bad storm, a substandard shed can turn into one or many projectiles. This can severely compromise the safety of your house and the people inside it. Buying a shed with the ShedSafe seal of approval is the best way to ensure that your shed is going to be sturdy enough for its intended use, and that the contents inside of it and the buildings around it are safe from the elements.”

Italiano concluded, “When you buy a shed from a ShedSafe accredited builder, you know that you are getting the best and safest shed for your needs.”
