It’s not often that we can say this, but this is a fantastic looking storage box. The unit looks great, and it also doubles up as a handy seat, so you have lots of flexibility and usage out of the product. You get a box here that also has plenty of space in it too. The unit is 145 cm wide, and this makes for a very spacious and useful box when it comes to storage. The width reduces a little internally to 138 cm,and this is a little bit of a sacrifice, but not enough to cause a real problem. The depth of the box is 69.7 cm, and this goes down a little internally to 59.6 cm. Again, no great loss.
The unit is also distinguished because it has an automatic opening mechanism, and this means that you have a little more flexibility in your usage of the unit. This is a nice touch,and something we really appreciated, again due to the price being so low.
The box is big enough to handle most of the items that you will find in a family garden at the end of a long summer day, including large cushions, toys and even tools.
Materials and floor
This is where the real value comes in. The box has been made using UV resistant resin, so you have an item that simply is not going to suffer in terms of the sun. This means no cracking or peeling, which is great news if you have ever had a box before that has simply lost colour or cracked in the sun’s heat. It’s a refreshing change and is indicative of the quality of the materials used.
The floor has exactly the same treatment so you have even more quality built in here.
Treatment requirement and warranty
Due to the nature of the excellent build quality here and the UV resistance you don’t have to worry about any treatment and the box is basically maintenance free. Every now and then you will have to clean it, but this takes seconds.
Doors and windows
Security and privacy
By all means, buy a padlock to fit and enjoy enhanced security but we’re guessing that this is a very simple box you will use to store items casually.
Uniformly Impressed here. UV resistant materials and a generally solid exterior, as well as enough strength to seat two people comfortably.
Longevity Of Materials
That UV resistance brings you protection all year round and ensures the box keeps both it’s looks and its solidity.
You have 455 litres of storage and this is incredibly useful. You can simply store whatever you want in there and this is quite literally capable of managing most gardens odds and ends. Its a generous amount and we appreciated that.
Ease Of Installation
No problems here at all. Should take you no more than a few minutes.
We can't fault this box. The mechanism that allows for easy opening and closing is just the icing on the cake.
Final Thoughts: A very high quality box that allows for an excellent return on your investment over time. This is a great box to use for your garden storage and there is real quality in the build.
