Another great looking box from Keter, and we can say that this one has plenty of good features too. It looks great, and we think this is important due to the fact that it is part of your garden furniture. But there are also other aspects that make it a great buy.
The box measures up at 129.5 cm in width externally, and this goes down a little to 114.7 cm internally. When it comes to depth, you are looking at 70 cm externally, and down to 59.5 cm internally. So you have a 10 cm reduction, for example, on depth. This is a little much, but not really enough to cause problems with your enjoyment.
Other features include an automatic opening and closing mechanism that takes the work out of using the lid. This is great news if you have bulky items that you are trying to store.
You can also sit on it. Using it as a seat is great, and you can have two adults comfortably using it for this purpose.
Materials and floor
The unit has been manufactured using UV resistant poly resin. This is very strong stuff and it is particularly robust against sunlight. UV rays can cause items to crack and peel, and at the very least lose their colour. No such problems with this box, which is completely resistant, and therefore offers much more value through the long life of the item. The floor has the same materials in it too, so you get a very long lasting box.
Treatment requirement and warranty
That poly resin takes away all need for treatment, so you don’t have to worry about getting it taken care of with tubs of anything. It is maintenance free. All we recommend is that you do give it a clean every now and then for cosmetic reasons.
Doors and windows
Security and privacy
You can buy a padlock to make the box even more secure. Its got a great lid, but a padlock would add that extra level of security.
A great place to sit, and the weight of the unit helps. The UV resistant materials means you have an item that will last for years.
Longevity Of Materials 10/10
Again, the build quality ensures resistance even in the hardest sun and rain. Watertight and UV resistant, this is a great box.
You get a nice and healthy 400 L here. We are going to take a point off for that nearly 10 cm reduction in depth internally though.
Ease Of Installation 10/10
Very easy to install and shouldn't take more than ten minutes.
It is very good value for money. The storage capacity may worry some people though, so if it is a specific size you are after this may not be right for you.
Final Thoughts: This cannot be fauted on price. The seating is excellent and the build quality is impeccable. The size may be an issue for some, but it is still worth considering.
