Keter’s Store-it-Out Midi regards a cheap plastic garden storage facility, affordability generates vast global sales, decay resistance delivers sustainability throughout the ever changing weather conditions without succumbing to damp & heat deterioration, it’s super-easy to clean, arrives flat-packed yet is a doddle to construct.
Before we get rolling with the Midi it’s important to accept this is a low cost unit therefore robustness accompanied with top security is obviously not on the agenda here. It does have a slightly waver-able plastic structure however it delivers weatherproof credentials for outside storage accommodation, hence the Store-It-Out name.
It’s surprising how many purchasers expect a Fort Knox construction reading through the 1-5 star reviews; not at this price. The Midi is probably the lowest priced unit out there, just compare the competitions prices, it all becomes apparent.
We became disillusioned with the upkeep work demanded by our last wooden shed, their inability to stand up to damp conditions no matter how many re-coats of varnish we nurtured the wood with, they still become susceptible to decay setting in. Once the rot eroded the floor we escaped the hassles and opted for resin’s ease of maintenance.

Store-it-Out Midi Composition
Environmentally friendly recyclable polypropylene resin constitutes the make-up of the Midi delivering a weatherproof design. It’s Cheap & Cheerful.
The impervious composition goes through a UV stabilisation process to armour the make-up with protection to overcome plastic’s underlying issues associated with colour fade and cracking when left unsheltered from the onslaught of sunburn preventing bleaching, splitting, peeling and blistering.
The colour pigments added result in either a beige/brown, grey/black or espresso brown shade dependant on the chosen model.
The facade’s formation arrives in sheet form. Internally a ribbed structure produces stability whereas on the outer-surface the manufacturing procedure moulds a semblance of vertical wood panelling incorporating textured grain resulting in an effective outer-appearance.
Each resin panel interlocks with the floor and next sheet through a quick snap into place technique and secure with screws. Assembly’s fast, pleasing inexperienced DIYers.
If you fully immersed Keter’s Store-it-Out cabinets they would leak through their interlinking gaps so they can’t be described as fully waterproof yet their composition is impervious to rainwater and the design is weatherproof for the elements falling down upon them, aiding to maintain a dry internal space, critical for storage preservation.
Washing down with a soft brush, warm water and detergent shifts deep-seated grime however most just shower them down with a light hose whilst watering the plants, this is my job on a summer’s evening, completed in minutes.
Polypropylene resin resists rot & decay and requires no future maintenance roles with regards to re-coats of varnish or paint, putting an end to yearly conservation issues.
