Below is a brief overview of how some of the key points of this garden storage fairs across the market.

Guarantee

On a plastic garden storage box, the guarantee that the manufacturer offers is usually a very good indicator of the quality of the building. The longer the guarantee the more the manufacturer believes in the quality of the building they have produced. Typically we see manufacturer guarantees for plastic Garden Storage ranging from zero right up to a limited lifetime guarantee.

This plastic garden storage box comes with a 10 years guarantee. Most plastic garden storage come with a 15 years guarantee (26.04% of them) [3].

For this particular brand (Lifetime) they offer 11 [4] different types of guarantees on their plastic garden storage, with the 10 years guarantee on this being the longest they offer. The 10 years guarantee is found on 47.37% of Lifetime plastic garden storage [5], with a 5 year guarantee on 10.53% of its plastic garden storage. It is great that this garden storage was given one of the highest guarantees offered by the brand, and this shows the manufacturer has a lot of faith in the overall quality of this part of their product range.

When looking at comparable 7′ x 9.5′ plastic garden storage (we found 9 of them) the most popular guarantee length offered by manufacturers was 15 years [6]. 55.56% came with a missing guarantee, 11.11% came with a 15 year guarantee, 11.11% came with a 10 year guarantee, 11.11% came with a 3 year guarantee and 11.11% came with a limited lifetime guarantee.

You’ll also find the high-density polyethylene (hdpe) cladding showing up on 22% of 7′ x 9.5′ garden storage (2 in total) [10], and when taking the average Expert Score of those 7′ x 9.5′ garden storage (75), the Lifetime Plastic Outdoor Storage Shed 7×9.5ft is just above the average with an Expert Score of 77.

Public-Facing – Extra security measures might be more of a concern if you’re placing your building in an area that is more public-facing than a garden. Features such as security windows or even having no windows at all, and the ability to lock all opening doors are usually much more important when you have something that is more public-facing. We found at least 3 garden storage that have options that you might find a better fit if this is a concern you have.

1. Polycarbonate: Is one of the toughest plastics available. The excellent toughness and thermal stability make Polycarbonate one of the most widely used thermoplastics. This durability makes this ideal for garden equipment and extremely durable plastic garden structure. Polycarbonate is also used for things such as riot shields, vandal proof glazing, safety helmets and headlamp lenses.

According to data from the British Plastics Fedaration the physical properties of Polycarbonate are that it is very good when exposed to high heat with a maximum continuous use temperature of 125 °C. This is coupled with the outstanding Notched Impact Strength data of 60 – 80 Kj/m². 

2. High-Density Polyethylene: Polyethylene (Polythene) is one of the world’s most popular plastics. It is an enormously versatile polymer which is suited to a wide range of applications and is often used for things that need to be extra durable like garden containers (they often are made from high density polyethylene). The polymers’ low cost, high rigidity and ease of blow moulding has also made the material a natural choice in gardening furnishings and garden storage boxes and cabinets. You will also find it used on things such as park benches and waste bins.

According to data from the British Plastics Fedaration the physical properties of High-Density Polyethylene are that it is not very good when exposed to high heat with a maximum continuous use temperature of 65 °C. This is however offset by the outstanding Notched Impact Strength data that showed ‘no break’.
