A1 ShedBAR Shed Door Locking Security Bar

The A1 ShedBAR Door Security Bar is a very strong, reversible locking security bar lock for shed and workshop doors of all sizes. This extremely strong security bar is made from 10mm thick solid steel, which has been hot-dip galvanised to stay weatherproof for up to 25 years. It is available in 7 sizes - 95cm, 1.2m, 1.5m, 1.8m, 2m, 2.5m and 3m, and is suitable for single or double shed doors measuring up to 2800mm wide (with bespoke sizes being available if required).

The A1 ShedBAR is one of the simplest to fit, easiest to use, and strongest security shed bars available today, with each bar being made from 40mm wide x 10mm solid steel. Each end bracket is 40x40x110mm and is crafted from a single piece of 5mm thick steel, and is supplied with M6x60mm cup-squared steel security bolts. For even more strength, additional brackets can be purchased to create an effective thickness of 10mm. There is an oval hole (approx.12x18mm) in one end of the security bar to accept a padlock (not supplied). The A1 Shed Door Security Bar is suitable for any building (wood or metal) with outward opening hinged doors.

Quality Construction

Each A1 Shed Door Security Bar is made from heavy 40mm x 10mm hot-dip galvanized steel. The shed bars are extremely heavy, with even the lightest bar weighing in at well over 3kg!

No Maintenance

Each security shed bar is hot-dip zinc-galvanized, and has a manufacturers 25-year guarantee.

Straight-forward Assembly

The A1 Shed Door Security Bar is easy to fit. Just drill 4x holes (2 each side of the door) and fit the brackets using the M6x60mm bolts supplied. The bar slides into place then you secure it with a padlock (optional). The security bar itself is is designed with a unique lip at one end, which allows it bar to be angled into position... ideal if your shed is located between two obstacles.

Top Tip: If you have a very wide door (or double doors) we recommend fitting one (or two) additional bracket(s) to the face of the door(s). This inexpensive upgrade will dramatically increase the strength of your shed doors, and its security.

The brackets can be reversed to allow more room for larger doors (see recommended sizes below), however please note that the door may not open fully, and your padlock may not sit comfortably. Please check that the length of bolts are going to be appropriate for your shed, as you will need to purchase longer bolts if you have heavy framing.

Additional brackets are available for extra strength... they can be positioned along the length of the bar, or back-to-back at either end, creating an effective bracket thickness of 10mm (see below).

Delivery lead time shown is typical for most areas, however this is approximate and cannot be guaranteed, so please check before ordering if delivery time is critical. **Bespoke lengths (includes 3000mm bar) will take longer to make and galvanize, therefore please add at least 7-days onto your chosen delivery time. NOTE: All bars are supplied galvanized, without any branding or logo, image above shows bar with an etched company logo for photographic purposes only. 
***For the best user experience, the brackets should be positioned in the recommended position (Layout A), however you can turn the brackets around to gain another 35mm (B) or 70mm if required (C), although this will impact on how far you can open your door, and the size of padlock you need to use.

Superb addition to your shed's security

Using this bar coupled with a 5-lever closed shackle padlock my bike insurance company agreed to fully insure my bikes within my shed. I purchased two additional brackets to mount to the face of the doors to vastly increased the security. Very easy to fit (took about 30 mins in total).

The additional brackets came with the wrong size bolts but Gerry from A1Sheds apologised and immediately sent the correct size. These things happen but it was resolved very quickly

Reviewer: Gareth Peace from Edinburgh   4 Stars

Shed bar very happy

Ordered the a1 shed bar paid the extra for 2 more brackets and the padlock. Would reccomend getting the 2 extra brackets but the lock is a little cheap the bar itself is solid. Wasn't happy with delivery paid extra for next day took nearly 2 weeks I should have that refunded.

Reviewer: Robert Batchelor from Hampshire   5 Stars

Bar arrived before expected, very pleased with prompt delivery and quality of product.

All items present, great quality and well packaged.

Will certainly make my shed almost impregnable, would buy from A1 Sheds again.

Reviewer: Alan Pocock from Coventry   5 Stars

Great product. Arrived very promptly. This product is a no nonsense, solid as a rock, bit of kit. I'm no great handyman but found this bar very easy to fit.

Reviewer: A Kirkpatrick from Port Seton   5 Stars

I'm delighted with my shedbar. It's absolutely solid, and is perfect for keeping my cleaning chemicals secure

Reviewer: Daniel Guzman from London   3 Stars

The bar itself seems pretty darn solid and like something that would take some doing to get through.

The problem is in the brackets provided...

I bought an extra set so that I would not have a weak point but the brackets are quite poorly molded and therefore do not fit together well. This essentially makes getting the bar in and out extremely hard to almost impossible.

Shipping took well over the advised time, about a 5 business days. I wish I did not pay for expedited shipping.

Reviewer: Robert Burrows from Selly Oak   5 Stars

Bar received ok and fitted today. Result: Very pleasing. Thank you for prompt delivery.

Reviewer: Leeson Griffiths from Cambs   5 Stars

Tough as old boots, easy peasy to fit. I purchased the additional brackets, braced the other side of the door/wall with 2" timber to spread any prying load and it really is as solid as a rock! You would have to be pretty determined thief to even try and beat it! 5*

Reviewer: Alex Kirkpatrick from Port Seton   5 Stars

Very happy with the A1 Shed security bar! It is absolutely solid... easy to fit, and simple to use, but the best thing is the peace-of-mind I now have. Thank you.

Reviewer: Veronica Collier from Chinnor, Oxfordshire   5 Stars

Thank you so much, my shed bar arrived 23hours and 55mins after placing order. Fantastic service! V. Collier

Reviewer: Grant Hughes from Prestonpans   5 Stars

Very good product and service. This is my second bar, and I would recommend highly.

Reviewer: J Barrett from Cardiff   5 Stars

Very strong, good delivery, easy to fit, looks invincible. 5*****

Reviewer: David Reid from Croydon   5 Stars

Very strong and it was easy to fit. I chose the 2-5 day delivery as I was going on holiday, but I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived the next day. My shed has thick framing, so I would have preferred slightly longer fixing bolts (however this wasn't a problem as I just countersunk the nuts). Thank You
