Characteristics of Motorcycle Sheds
A motorbike shelter is an absolute necessity when you have a motorcycle but no garage to keep it in. With no garage available to protect your motorcycle from the natural elements like sun, rain, wind, frost and snow you need a motorcycle shed where you can keep it out of harm’s way for some time or for as long as you do not use it.
The motorcycle shed manufactured by different companies and those that are available in the market use various kinds of materials in their construction. The cheapest and the simplest form of motorcycle shed available in the market is made from iron rods and plastic sheets. This type of motorcycle shed is very easy to erect anywhere as the main structure is composed of iron rods only. The iron rods look like the outlines of a tent when they are erected. Once you cover the iron structure with the plastic or polythene sheets the construction truly looks like a tent.
To enter into the tent you can lift the flaps on either side which will allow you access to the motorcycle inside which will stop rain or snow from entering the shed when they are closed. This type of motorcycle shed is very portable also. You can dismantle this motorcycle shed whenever do not require it and store to use it later on. Or you can simply dismantle it and carry it with you wherever you go so that your motorcycle always has a roof over its head.
The motorcycle sheds made from other materials like rigid plastic sheets, wooden boards or metal sheets are more of a semi-permanent or permanent nature. They are designed in such a way that they can be an extension of your garage or your home or they can be a stand-alone structure in one corner of your garden. These structures have straight walls on three sides, slanted roofs and doors fixed with hinges to the structure. These structures are strong enough to withstand rain, hailstorms and snowstorms and can keep your motorcycle safe and sound.
While ordering for these types of motorcycle sheds you have to decide on what exactly you want to use the shed for other than keeping your motorcycle inside it. You have to decide beforehand where you want to set it up because the dimensions of the motorcycle shed will depend on the space available beside your house, garage or garden. If you want the shed to have enough space for allowing you to a carry out minor repairs which do not require heavy equipment then you have to choose the shed accordingly.
Again to have enough light in your motorcycle shed for carrying out repairs you need a shed with windows in the side walls. If they are not available then you have to make alternate lighting arrangements. The motorcycle sheds available in the market come in different sizes also. You can stand up straight inside some of them while there are others which have just enough space for your motorcycle only.
