What’s The Difference Between An Anchor Kit And Peg?

What’s the difference between anchor kit and anchor pegs and when do you use them? When you have an existing concrete slab where you’ll be putting up your shed, you will need anchor sets (also called concrete fixing kits) to bolt down your shed to the slab to keep it secure and in place.

An anchor set from Absco consists of 8 anchors. The kit consists of steel angle, dynabolts, and nuts and bolts for permanent fastened down fitting of the shed.

Absco and Durabuilt shed models has the anchor set as an accessory that you may add to your shed order although there are selected models from both manufacturers that comes with anchor sets for free.

The anchor sets are included in the shed kits for all Spanbilt models.

Anchor pegs are mainly used when you place your shed on a soft surface such as the grass or pavers. The pegs are tapered metal that you can drive down a malleable surface. Only Durabuilt offers this as an option for their shed models.
