Secured by Design member company, Asgard Secure Steel Storage, continues to support prominent UK athletes by providing them secure outdoor sheds to safely store their sports equipment, with Olympic & European Curling Champion Eve Muirhead becoming the latest sporting star to opt for an Asgard shed.
Eve Muirhead OBE is an Olympic Curling Champion, winning Gold at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, following a Bronze medal win at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Her success is not only in the Olympics, she’s also a European Champion, winning the 2011, 2013, 2017 and 2021 championships too. Her role within the Curling team is a ‘Skip’, the captain of the team.
After discussions with the Asgard shed experts, Eve chose the Annexe Secured by Design accredited shed, a compact and secure sports equipment storage shed measuring just 6ft wide x 3ft deep. With security being a top priority for Eve, the Annexe’s reinforced hinges, doors and panels, plus a 5-point locking system with EN1303 rated pick-and-drill resistant lock and snap-off handle design was perfect to store her large range of sporting equipment, including bikes, golf clubs, curling brushes, balls and more.
The Annexe is certified to Loss Prevention Certification Board level 1, and approved by the UK Locksmiths and Secured by Design. Alongside Asgard’s galvanised steel carcass with an integral base which can be bolted to the floor, the Annexe’s low compact design finished in a ivory finish is non-obtrusive, making it ideal for small spaces and patios.
Eve said: “Absolutely delighted with the Asgard and the service! It’s provided me with more secure space, which means I can get even more golf clubs, bikes and curling brushes which I really don’t need!”
Andy, Asgard Storage, said: “Eve has picked a great shed in the Annexe, one of our older designs now, but still a popular choice – Secured by Design approved and Loss Prevention Board Tested, the Annexe is a real tank of a shed – its low profile makes it very discreet in any garden, so very popular in smaller areas.”
SBD Technical Manager Alfie Hosker said: “I am absolutely delighted that yet another Olympian is so pleased with their Secured by Design accredited Asgard bike shed. It’s testament to the quality of the product and the reputation Asgard bring in this area.”
The SBD accredited Annexe Shed has recently been put to the test with thieves unsuccessfully targeting professional athlete Monica Dew’s bike shed, giving up after failing to get into the unit.
