Show Your Shed Some Attention This Summer

Rundown Garden shed Never under appreciate the importance of your garden shed. It has likely taken a battering from hail, snow, and torrential wind this year already.

And although it may look a little bit tired right now, you’ll soon be back in there come the sunshine. Therefore, we think you should pay it a little attention and some TLC. With the help of Bristol Storage we want you to take pride in your shed and show it off this season. Take a look at our top tips below:

Our Top Tips to a Stunning Shed

Some men take sanctuary in their man sheds – it’s the one place they can unleash their masculinity and get away from the obstacles life throws at them. So make sure you get the most out of your shack with these easy maintenance products and tips.

Keep It Tidy

The last thing anyone wants out of their safe haven is another disorganised, clutter filled room, meaning that you can’t utilise its full potential.  Why not take a look at these products that can lend a helping hand:

  • If you have a small shed then have no fear – it’s not the size that’s important. Our Adjustable Steal Shelving is perfect for getting the most out of small spaces. Its scratch resistant feature means you can safely storeShelving solutions from Bristol Storage anything like saw blades or gardening tools worry free. The thick steal shelving can withstand a staggering amount of weight with minimal maintenance so you can reuse it again and again.
  • If you’re lucky enough to have a bigger shed, why not keep it in order with our clever shelving solutions? Perfect for those on a budget, these solutions are robust and super easy to put together.
  • More of a gardener than a DIY kind of person? We think you need to check out this tool wall. Shelving doesn’t have to be unsightly; we make our designs as sleek as possible to fit in with home life. All gardeners know that there will never be enough room for all your gardening tools, so why not invest in some storage containers or shelving to maximise the space in your shed?

Now we’ve got the shed tidied up, you’ll need somewhere to work.

Somewhere to Work

What better way is there to boost your productivity than having a high quality, durable work bench to not only keep you safe, but to maximise your creativity? Every household has the same basic needs; new items need to be built, or old items need to be fixed. But these aren’t the kind of activities that you can simply carry out on the kitchen side or the dining table. No – you need to treat your newly organised shed to its very own workbench.

  • The risk of developing strain-related injuries whilst working on a workbench is pretty high which is why it’s crucial to make sure you get one with an ergonomic design to best fit you. Most industrial heavy duty workbenches can be adjusted according to the task being completed. Take a look at our dual workbench which is available in a number of different sizes, as well as an additional shelf for even more storage space.

Keep it Organised

Finally, you have a newly tidied shed with a handy workbench but the crucial piece of the puzzle is to maintain all that effort with some organisational skills.easy wipe racking strips

  • Whilst you’re getting down and dirty with a whole summers worth of DIY, gardening and tea breaks, it is easy to forget where things go and how you’ve organised your shed. With the ability to be tailored to any length you want, our easy wipe racking strip is fantastic for writing labels on and colour coding your new boxed and organised tools. The wipeable finish enables these strips to be reused shed loads of times!

SEMA Seal of Approval for Bristol StorageThis month Bristol Storage Equipment Ltd are very pleased to announced that we have qualified as a member of the SEMA distributor group; The British Trade Association of the Storage Equipment Industry.

Despite always ensuring that we comply with the latest standards of SEMA guidelines this recognition is a fantastic achievement and just another reason that our customers can rest assured that all our products and services are of the greatest quality.

As always, the Bristol Storage installation teams are SEIRS registered and all work that is carried out runs in accordance with the SEMA Codes of Practice. Every member of SEMA has achieved or is committed to achieving certification BS EN ISO 9000 in interface with a Quality Assessment Schedule (QAS 2000) which deals with the specific requirements of design, manufacture and installation of the principal products supplied by the Association members.

Who Are SEMA?

We don’t like to brag, well maybe we do a little, but it isn’t easy to get accreditation from SEMA and there are currently only a handful of businesses who hold it nationwide. Companies must have been in business for a minimum of 2 years and hold a distributorship from a recognised manufacturer of storage equipment.

This is all very well, but who are SEMA we hear you ask? Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) are an organisation committed to promoting and extending the safe design, installation and use of storage equipment manufactured and supplied by its members. Their seal of approval not only benefits customers but the industry, through the distribution of technical advice and information on trading opportunities.

SEMA have established codes of practice that must be adhered to in order to conform to the latest health and safety regulations in relation to the installation of racking, shelving and all other forms of storage equipment. SEMA guidelines also cover product design and health and safety legislation. Ensuring that standards are adopted by public and professional bodies in accordance with the interest of the industry, it is crucial that your storage system is built to meet such requirements.

Rigorous Qualifying Criteria & Independent Audits

Here at Bristol Storage Equipment we've had to demonstrate a high level of commitment to safety standards and ensure that we adhere to industry codes of practice. But did you know that members must commit to a random audit of their work in order to be accredited? What better way to truly ensure great products, installation and service than knowing a company has been professionally and independently audited, and at random too. And the whole process that is audited, from quotation to sign-off.

What Are The Benefits?

As mentioned previously SEMA ensures the provision of quality products and system as well as a systematic and well-managed delivery. Below are just a few of SEMA seal of approval benefits for our customers:

  • Products are designed and tested to recognised and approved standards
  • Consistent level of product quality and supply.
  • Quality storage equipment products and systems that meet customer requirements
  • Products are designed, manufactured and installed in accordance with a system that is subject to a 3rd party assessment.
  • Storage products designed, manufactured and installed in accordance with recognised safety standards.
  • Increased customer/operator confidence in products and systems supplied

Bristol Storage Inspection

Bristol Storage are leading inspectors of pallet racking and mezzanine flooring within Bristol and the South West. We understand the importance of keeping your pallet racking and shelving maintenance up to scratch and that the safety of your stock and personal are of the utmost importance.

Regular inspection can help reduce both insurance premiums and maintenance costs. Inspection can also induce investigations into the cause of any damage to racking which can result in improved operating methods and reduced maintenance costs. Our team recommends the Annual Pallet Racking Health Check to ensure your pallet racking meets the current health and safety regulations as well as the SEMA codes and guidelines.

Even more, the Bristol Storage installation teams are all SEIRS registered. The Storage Equipment Installers Registration Scheme (SEIRS) is one of the most important measure brought in by SEMA. The industry specific training programme has been designed by industry professionals in order to train installation teams in line with the SEMA installation guidelines and codes of practice. It is highly recommended that any installation, relocation or removal of storage equipment is carried out by a SEIRS qualified installer which ultimately ensures the safety of your warehouse storage equipment in adherence with SEMA guidelines.

Get in Touch

Now that you know Bristol Storage are qualified members of the SEMA distributor group, what better time to get in touch. With many years of industry experience and a track record of delivering quality warehouse racking systems and mezzanine flooring the team at Bristol Storage can help.

The Easter Bunny To Visit Bristol Storage

We love Easter.FREE Egg with Every Online Order


Apart from Christmas it is the only time of year when it is completely acceptable to eat our body weight in egg shape chocolates. And since the arrival of these delicious treats in supermarkets everywhere since February, we’ve probably already had our fair share.

Pallet Racking

Pallet racking is a great solution for small warehouses and overcoming the pitfalls of your currently unorganised system. These reliable and durable systems utilise the available space in your warehouse ensuring that you can store away high density, and high volume bulk inventory.

Why wouldn’t you want to be able to access your storage easily and conveniently? Besides, it makes economic sense to make use of every space in your warehouse, doesn’t it? And in doing so you can continue to encourage improved safety measure as employees and your inventory itself isn’t jeopardised by poorly stored items.

Mezzanine Flooring

Rather than the extortionate costs of extensions of even company relocation you could maximise the use of your current warehouse with mezzanine flooring. The additional space works great in offices, retail, and production space where you can make better use of redundant space.


With a range of shelving options available at Bristol Storage you can organise your offices, warehouses and even homes with a variety of products. These clever storing solutions, which are simple yet effective, come in a range of designs specific for industrial use, stock rooms, mobile options and even you home garages.

Steel Partitions

Do you want to redesign the layout of your workplace, either temporarily or for the long term future? Steel Partitions are an ideal choice when you need to create designated areas within your current workplace.

If you can’t make decent shelving, then is it worth the time to FAKE it?

We’re not just fans of all things warehouse racking here at Bristol Storage HQ – we’re also pretty partial to a bit of clever domestic shelving solutions you can use at home – well, its all about maximising your space wherever you are, isn’t it?

So we’d like to present our most favourite “fake” built in shelving ideas we found online:

Ikea Transformation

This is literally “centsational!”

The author, Kate, who blogs over at her Centsational Girl blog, writes up on turning four Ikea Billy shelves into one fitted built-in bookcase and it looks absolutely awesome.

Check out her blog post as it provides easy instructions (with photos) on how you can build the same in literally a weekend!

Built in Bookcase

Another built in book case, all the way from Ashli in British Columbia (nice part of the world!). We love the final finish – looks stunning and really makes the room - why not take a look for yourselves here?

Custom Built-ins

Turning Ikea furniture into custom built-ins – Erin and her husband show how they changed 2 “plain” Ikea Hennes glass door cabinets into exquisitely fitted cabinets with just a few simple modifications.

Wallpapering Furniture

A really detailed piece on spraying and wallpapering onto Ikea furniture to create a jaw dropping piece of built in bedroom furniture. Lovely, Jenny shows some real creative flair in converting this piece of Ikea furniture into a custom fitted shelving system (a.k.a fitted wardrobe!)

Floor to Ceiling

Chris took up the mantle after seeing Centsational Girl’s blog post (see link at the top of this piece) and she has come up with quality floor to ceiling shelving that looks great!

With clever coving and using the wall’s original skirting board as the bookcases base you’d never think it was 2 standalone bookcases.

So what clever storage and shelving have you seen recently? Let us know!
