There are a few different options with regards to the flooring. We recommend the option of a Colorplus Steel Framed Shutter Board Floor (R750 per meter squared). This is for units up to and including a 2,4m x 4,8m.
Larger steel floors are available but often a concrete slab is more suitable for the larger units.
If you choose a Colorplus floor for your smaller shed , there are some extras available such as adjustable legs (R150 each) and specialised concrete holding down blocks (R150 each) necessary on loose soil and grass.
All Gauteng units come standard with a Colorplus Steel Framed Shutter board Floor

Once the shed has been erected and secured to the
cured slab , you can lay square pavers / bricks.
A sheet of plastic should be placed under the
pavers / bricks to stop water permeating up.
You can screed inside. Using a 4 to 1 river sand and cement mix, apply a 35mm screed inside the shed.
Concrete Slab instructions -If There is No Existing Floor
Place and peg formwork 300mm wider than shed. Example 2,8m x 4,8m shed=3,1m x 5,1m. Ground must be level and compacted
