Better Doors – The Tuff Shed Difference

Nov 20, 2020 |  Featured Stories

As the only moving component on our buildings, we take extra care with our door to ensure its lasting quality. After all, you need a door that’s built Tuff so you can keep using your shed for years to come. Our patented door design does just that.

It won’t twist, it won’t warp, it won’t sag.

We start with a steel frame, sandwiched between LP Smartside® Siding and OSB wood sheathing. It’s then secured to the building with our specially designed, heavy-duty hinges that are rated at 500 pounds each. Our patented, ergonomic locking handle is made to fit your hand comfortably, can be opened from the inside even when locked, and is designed to last.

Our Hardware

A door is only as strong as its weakest component ­– that’s why our door hardware is second to none. Our hinges are rated at 500 pounds each, with more than enough strength to keep your door hanging straight and strong for years of work. The hinge pins are made from a cold-drawn steel bar for added strength, and Derlin® bushings fro smooth and consistent rotation every time. With zinc plating that’s ASTM corrosion rated, it’s designed to stand up to anything Mother Nature brings. In fact, we have so much faith in our hinges that we encourage you to hang on your door for a while and feel the strength.

And what would a great door be without a handle to match? Our teams worked for years to design the ideal ergonomic, locking handle. The patented handle design ensures that your shed locks securely from the outside, without any chance of locking you inside. And if you ever find yourself in need of a set of replacement keys, just give your local team a call.

Customizing Your Door

Just like the front door to your home, the door on your shed is the perfect place to show off your style. From black hardware, transom windows, decorative trim, accent paint, double and Dutch doors, there are 583,200 possible design combinations. We’re not only focused on the strength of your shed, but the style of it as well. No matter how many options you combine to create your ideal door, the strength and quality is never compromised.

In fact, we’ve chosen many of these options to add value and more usability to your new shed.

If you’re designing a shed for storing garden tools and outdoor gear, consider adding double doors that make it easy to move large items in and out of the building. For secure natural light, the in-door transom windows are a great solution. And if you’d like to match the style of your home, our accent paint options and black hardware will match nearly every home.
