Description :

Closed Cell Backer Rod is a round, flexible, closed cell polyethylene foam with an exterior "skin" used as a backing and thickness control device for elastomeric and other cold-applied sealants. The backer rod becomes an integral part of the joint into which it is installed and therefore is available in a range of diameters to accommodate joints from 3/16 inch to 1-5/8 inch. It limits the depth of the sealant, therefore preventing excessive use of sealants. Because the sealant will not bond to the "skin" of the rod, it can stretch and recover with joint movement, with minimal stress being put on the points of adhesion to the substrate.

Having splashed out on new garden furniture, the last thing you want to do is watch it sit outside being spoiled by the elements or worse still, stolen. Securely storing your garden furniture and possessions is relatively simple and in many cases inexpensive. Obviously the more secure you want to make it, the higher the cost, but it doesn’t have to cost the earth to be safely stored.

Garden storage is available in a variety of materials nowadays, with plastic options proving to be just as secure as wood, metal or stone structures – something that wasn’t the case several years ago. If you are planning to invest in a new storage structure for your garden, bear the following suggestions in mind and it may help to keep costs down – something we’re all looking to do wherever possible at present – without compromising security.

The first important consideration is the location. The best thing you can do is to locate your shed or structure as close the home as possible. Many opt to have their sheds at the far end of the garden, well out of the way. The flaw to this is that intruders can break in and be on their way out of your property before you’ve had the chance to react. At least with a structure close to the home, sensor lights monitoring the doors and windows will pick up people breaking into your storage.

This means you don’t need to spend extra money on expensive locks as the standard ones will prove to be effective. Also, you get extra stability by building your structure against the house walls, a real bonus for the plastic options.

Secondly you should consider the lighting that you’ll require. Putting in full time lighting will add to your electricity bill, especially if you intend to use the lights as garden lights while you have late night parties with friends. If at all possible, think about using solar powered kits that will automatically switch themselves on when it goes dark. Fitting a sensor light will prove to be an effective deterrent to burglars.

Finally, a good quality padlock can prove to be just as effective an anti-intruder device as an alarm, and comes at a fraction of the cost. Dead bolt or steel padlocks that fit the door firmly can prove particularly difficult to open with bolt cutters.

Obviously these are only the cheaper options for securing your garden storage, but there are plenty more methods out there. If you have the cash to spend, expensive options can prove to be brilliant but many security measures can be taken at a fraction of the price.
