We’re passionate about all of the products we sell at Trimetals, from our range of superior quality metal sheds and garages to our Police Approved cycle storage units and new range of Patio / Decking boxes.

Keep your bicycle secure and safe from thieves!

January 16th, 2015

Cycling is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK, it is now also a very popular pastime to help keep healthy and a viable method of transport for commuting (especially in cities such as London where there has recently been a huge investment to promote the benefits of cycling).

People are also spending considerably more on their cycle and equipment and many dedicated cyclists often own more than one bike, maybe a road bike, mountain bike and possibly also a hybrid.

Unfortunately, cycles (unless they are the clever foldable versions) are not that easy to store, they take up a fair amount of space and if used regularly must be kept accessible i.e. they cannot be placed at the back of a crowded garage.

Better safe than sorry! – Three tips for securing your garden

November 14th, 2014

Of all the items that can be stolen from an individual’s property, gardening tools and equipment are perhaps the easiest for prospective thieves to take. They generally offer a good level of value to thieves, with minimal risk involved in the act of theft, especially when compared to items of comparative worth that are contained within your house.

To counter this risk, we’ve collected some useful tips on how to best protect your garden, along with the tools and equipment stored within, from thieves.

Wooden and plastic sheds vs metal sheds – how they compare

October 21st, 2014

Purchasing a shed can be a great way to add much needed storage space to your living quarters. However, choosing which type of shed to use can be a difficult and confusing decision.

We’ve listed the pros and cons of each type of material to help you find which shed is best for you.

Wooden Sheds

A wooden shed is the most traditional of the three and can be customised to create a very specific size or shape.  They can be painted any colour to match your house or surroundings, and they can easily be dressed up with unique features such as trellising  or window flower boxes.

One man’s Titanic (shed) achievement

August 19th, 2014

Anyone who owns a shed knows these are not just places to store tools and equipment – they are part of our homes and used for a variety of different purposes. Having said that, I was quite sceptical when I heard about one man’s shed. Apparently, it contained a perfect recreation of the Titanic’s interior.

Ok, that’s not entirely true. Obviously, he hasn’t constructed a bridge, cargo deck, passenger quarters etc, but his recreation of the historic ship has certainly raised one or two eyebrows. Rather cynically, I logged onto the Derby Telegraph to find out more.

Trimetals – The cycle storage choice of Thames Valley Police

July 30th, 2014

We are pleased to be working alongside Thames Valley Police to keep bicycles safe and secure with the Trimetals Protect a Cycles Pro range.

The Thames Valley force has installed Trimetals cycle stores at the new neighbourhood police office in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire. When the station was relocated from a site which had a structural garage, to a new facility where space was more limited, secure cycle storage became a must-have. In terms of security, Protect a Cycle Pro simply cannot be bettered.

Storage Box or Shed – Which is best for my garden?

July 16th, 2014

With the rate at which everyone accumulates possessions seeming to increase exponentially, it’s fair to say that in today’s world, space is at a premium.

This is no different in the garden, as space can quickly be eaten up by large equipment (lawnmowers, hedge trimmers), garden furniture (lounge chairs, picnic tables) and sporting equipment (football nets, bikes).

One of the most obvious (and certainly most effective) fixes for a cluttered garden is to store the offending items in some form of garden storage solution.

Patio Storage or Lawn Storage – Where do I put my Garden Shed?

July 1st, 2014

A Garden Shed is an important feature in any garden, allowing for a wide range of potential uses. Many people use their sheds for the all weather storage of outdoors tools and equipment, from lawn mowers to power saws. Other more green fingered shed owners will utilise their garden sheds for the potting of plants, and to store their various gardening tools and implements. The sky really is the limit in terms of utility; but new shed owners quickly find that their shed becomes an integral feature of their garden.

Are you ready for National Shed Week?

June 16th, 2014

Did you know the first week of next month is National Shed Week (1st-6th July 2014)? – a time when enthusiasts and fans of everything shed-related come together and celebrate the wonders of these little huts.

Sponsored by wood care solutions company Cuprinol, National Shed Week has been running for the last eight years and has gathered quite a following. Consequently, it seems likely that this event will be continuing for some time.

However, those who are new to gardening or don’t own a shed might question the merits of such a celebration. After all, aren’t these huts just part and parcel of any house?
