Handi-Pod™ Frequently Asked Questions

The door on the Handi-Pod™ sheds can only be installed on the right side, with hinges on the right side.

The design of the Handi-Pod™ means that this is the only place the door can be installed.

While the downpipe on the Handi-Pod™ sheds does not have to be installed, the gutter is an integral structural component that must be installed.

At this stage, the Handi-pod™ is not available with an optional window.

The Handi-Pod™ has been designed to stand a generous 2.04M tall. Any additional height may adversely impact its wind resistance and result in the door not operating correctly.

If you have a damaged panel, please contact Stratco on 0800 787 282 for advice.

It is always recommended to check with your local council or authority before erecting your Handi-Pod™.

Whilst it is possible to install any garden shed on bricks, it is not recommended, as this will not meet the standard for wind resistance. In order to comply with warranty and also meet New Zealand wind standards, there are two approved methods for installing any garden shed:

  1. Before building the shed pour a concrete base that is larger than the area of the shed by at least 200mm in each direction. The base should be poured so the concrete outside the shed floor area slopes away from the shed to help prevent water entering the shed.
  2. Substantial concrete pads may be used at each anchor location as an alternative to a complete concrete floor. It is recommended pads are minimum 250mm x 400mm deep and embedded into a firm natural soil base.

Handi Pod's™ come with a 10 year paint warranty and 15 year structural warranty. It is important to adhere to the maintenance guidelines listed in the Handi-Pod™ installation guide.

The Handi-Pod™ is designed with DIY in mind. You’ll need some tools and a bit of knowledge of how to use them. If you know your way around a drill and a rivet gun, then you should be good to go. You will need a few things before you start:

  1. Rivet gun
  2. Caulking gun and silicone (For waterproofing the gutter and downpipe connection)
  3. Cordless drill (for drilling rivet holes and screwing metal screws)
  4. Hammer drill if your cordless drill does not have a hammer function (for drilling into the concrete slab for masonry anchors)
  5. 10mm masonry drill bit
  6. Ladder
  7. Tape measure
  8. 5mm drill bit, 5/16” hex head driver, and #2 Phillips driver (all supplied with your shed)

Yes – when correctly assembled, and mounted on an approved concrete base, the Handi-Pod™ will resist normal rainy conditions. The Handi-Pod™ will not be waterproof in the event of flooding and the interior may condensate depending on weather conditions.
