Fair Dinkum Sheds, one of Australia’s leading distributors of residential garages, carports, barns, farm sheds and industrial and commercial buildings, is leading the industry to be one of the first businesses to receive The Australian Steel Institute’s (ASI) new industry benchmark for steel sheds – ShedSafe®.
ShedSafe® accreditation, which was officially launched in November 2010, came about after the ASI learned that most sheds that had structural failures during cyclone Larry in 2006, were not built to the standards set by the Building Code of Australia (BCA). Since then, further evidence of under-engineered sheds has also been discovered in areas across Australia – putting people and property at risk.
ShedSafe® accreditation cannot be purchased – it has to be earned and Fair Dinkum Sheds underwent a rigorous independent auditing and certification process by an ASI appointed panel of independent engineers and specialists.
Being ShedSafe® accredited is a commitment that buildings designed for each of the 150 nationwide distributors of Fair Dinkum Sheds adhere to and complies with the Building Code of Australia (BCA).
Primarily, ShedSafe® is about safety for the consumer and it serves to protect the investment in a shed and its contents. Consumers can be confident in the fact that Fair Dinkum Sheds ensure that all standards set by the BCA are incorporated into the design process of each shed. They are able to provide a shed design suitable to specific sites and locations, whilst also taking into account anticipated usage and environmental factors such as wind load on the structure.
But there is no such thing as a standard Fair Dinkum Shed. All designs can be customised according to your needs using our exclusive MultiBuild® software. This allows you to change the design on the spot as well as incorporate options such as sliding or roller doors, personal access doors, garaports, lean-to’s, mezzanine floors and more. MultiBuild® software will update your quote and drawings instantly based on ShedSafe® engineering principles so you are assured your customisation requirements do not impact the safety of the structure.
