The Tall Wall Highlander range from Absco. It provides additional height in the walls (approx. an extra 200mm).  A great solution for those tall individuals &/or those who will like to spend some time in the shed.  The garden sheds are manufactured from low maintenance ribbed steel sheeting and are designed to add value to your home. The roof has a slight overhang to add to the overall appearance.  The gables are situated in the side walls, with the door(s) in the front non-gable end. The door(s) are hinged for added security & are reinforced with internal bracing for strength & rigidity.

Materials: Absco products are manufactured from Australian made Bluescope Steel. Sheeting is available in Zincalume® (silver / galvanised finish) or Colorbond®.   Colorbond® Sheds have no external galvanised or Zincalume® trim pieces or channels, unlike some other products on the market.

Safety Edge: All ABSCO metal sheeting for sheds has a rolled safety edge to minimise the possibility of cuts & mishaps.

Easy To Assemble: The SNAPTiTE® World Wide Patented fast assembly system is used.  Snaptite is an innovative design (exclusive to ABSCO) that dramatically reduces the time & effort required to assemble a shed.  It reduces the number of fasteners by 75%.  This is accomplished by a design that allows for the wall & roof perimeter channels to permanently lock into the wall & roof sheets, without the use of any tools or additional fasteners. Absco sheds assemble up to 80% faster.
