The NewUrban Shed

Introducing the new Urban Shed for 2023. Designed, engineered and manufactured in Japan by Daiken Co., the Urban Shed is unlike any shed or outdoor storage cabinet in Australia!

The Urban Shed is perfect for backyards, courtyards, decks, terraces and other outdoor areas that remain in view of your internal or outdoor living spaces. If you need that extra outdoor storage, it doesn’t need to be an ugly industrial or agricultural looking box any more!

From its contemporary, stylish good looks, precision Japanese engineering and total quality Japanese manufacturing, the Urban Shed offers a unique solution for your outdoor space.

That flimsy, hardware store shed just doesn’t cut it anymore!

Daiken Co. is Japan’s market leading supplier of sheds and outdoor storage structures. With a proud history of over 100 years, and a number of factories throughout Japan, we are confident we have sourced the best possible supplier to change the game in the Australian shed market.

    Structurally, you will not find a better made shed.

    The Urban Shed provides unrivalled strength and structural integrity due to its unique reinforced panel composition. The ceiling of the Urban Shed is strong enough to hold 60cm of snow, at 1,200N/m2.

    The Urban Shed is constructed from pre-painted galvanised steel, supplied by Nippon Steel, Japan’s leading steel manufacturer.

    The pre-painted steel is supplied to Daiken in large rolls, ready to be transformed into a vast range of components that are then used in over 40 different sizes/ models of the same shed type at their factory near Narita Airport, Tokyo.

    The pre-painted steel is Galvalume steel sheet. It is an aluminum-zinc alloy-plated steel sheet developed by the Bethlehem Steel Corporation in the US.

    The plating consists of 55% aluminium, 43.4% zinc and 1.6% silicon. By adding the galvanization (galvanic protection) of zinc to the long-term durability, and heat resistance of aluminium, Galvalume steel sheet has a durability of about three to six times longer than galvanized steel under various conditions of use. For more detailed information on the specific steel used click here.
