Duotech’s well respected outdoor patio storage sheds pioneer an innovative manufacture engineered through a groundbreaking composition of polypropylene, embracing a charming weather-resistant rustic guise that’s uniquely customizable and a cinch to build.
The reason for writing this post is to relay how basic the High-Store’s construction procedure smoothly assembles into a finished patio store in relaxed double-quick time. Before the construction video, a brief summery of the weather-resistant manufacture that delivers Duotech High-Store’s advantages.
If you wish to skip the description, scroll down the page (above the pros & cons) where you’ll find a highly detailed reality video demonstrating every assembly step that efficiently constructs the High-Store. These stores can be built, stocked & serving outdoor accessories within a few hours.
Duotech’s Weather-Resistant Design
Duotech’s High-Store represents an approximate 4½ x 2½ ft spacious weatherproof outside storage cupboard comprising easy-access lockable double doors, designed for locating on a patio or home-yard’s seating area accommodating outdoor gear suchlike patio accessories, gardening equipment and BBQ utensils etc. Retaining appearances merely involves a light scrub or hosepipe shower.
Constituting Duotech’s cutting-edge polypropylene manufacture ensures 4-season weather protection against decay, designed rot-resistant and UV protected thereby withstands fractures & combats colour-fade brought on by the onslaught of sunburn meanwhile the composite comprises a specially designed resin talc formula providing a paintable surface, unparalleled in the resin shed industry.
Decorating the surface with recommended acrylic emulsion delivers a washable durable surface meanwhile opens up a wide spectrum of resplendent colour shades that enable brightening-up the creation of your uniquely designed enchanting patio oasis or simply leave the silvery tones the way they display.
The only downside regarding painting is that over time, the paint will fade and require a re-coat however preparation will merely involve a pre-wash & dry before painting owing the the High-Store’s immunity from rot.
Each wall sheet & door enhances sturdiness virtue of dual-sided internally reinforced panels incorporating assembly-friendly tongue & groove edging meanwhile grain-textured molding complements the silvery tones to exhibit the guise of rustic weathered charm.
The High-Store provides the opportunity to install two wooden shelves, their measurements are presented at the end of the instructions. Shelf supports are included but not the shelves. Assuming shelves are desired, a favourable alternative regards self assembling a bank of those popular tiered shelves commonly advertised for organising garages. Purchased at DIY stores, their support for hefty weights enhances storage advantages.
Presenting High-Store’s Assembly Strategy
I stumbled upon a video created by the Ultimate Handyman demonstrating how efficiently Duotech’s High-Store constructs, worth viewing for tips if you’re contemplating building this patio store as he illustrates the entire assembly process from start-to-finish. In fact, it’s that detailed this video could replace the instructions, a huge thanks for the demonstration!
I’m a huge fan in addition to a YouTube subscriber of the Ultimate Handyman, he presents clear directions for completing a wide range of home-based DIY projects. A few jobs we’ve accomplished around our home thanks to his help regard plumbing fixtures, joinery, basic electrics, tiling, suspending ceilings, even plastering to name a few.
Whenever an appliance or fixture becomes broken I always explore his installation videos to learn how it’s done. He clearly defines and demonstrates how to accomplish around the home tasks efficiently. He’s helped us out of plenty of scrapes in the past when we’ve become baffled during an installation procedure, my basic DIY skills have certainly improved thanks to his informative presentations.
Surprised me why the Ultimate Handyman opted for a resin construction when he could have effortlessly designed, cut and fit together a similar structured wooden shed on account of his DIY credentials however like he mentions, Duotech is weather-resistant and sidesteps continuous time-consuming re-coats of varnish required for conserving an outside unit, not to mention wasting warm sunny days.
Opening rusty tins of wood-stain accommodating the top shelf and spending toilsome hours brushing away on rotting wood represents merely one dilemma. Topping off an outside wooden cabinet usually involves roofing felt which soon disintegrates. We all understand what implications unfold once rainfall enters inside, he obviously decided to evade forthcoming weather related issues similar to this blog’s passion.
Albeit a fairly new entrant onto the resin shed market, Duotech’s High-Store receives exceptional feedback, especially in the UK. Unfortunately feedback stars have been knocked off in the USA due to poor delivery conditions however on account of High-Store’s competitive pricing structure it’s already jumped sales into the best-selling league, it’s one popular patio store.

Duotech High-Store Features
Particular significance concerns locating the patio store on the correct groundings to ascertain the high vertical structure stations sturdy and serves appropriately.
Flat foundations without underlying crevices accompanied by a solid substrate determine firm footings for the base to adhere to strenuous storage stresses suchlike parking a mower entails without succumbing to subsidence meanwhile assures unyielding & inflexible anchoring can be established.
Foundations of solidity like wood deck boards, paving slabs or spreadable materials suchlike concrete, asphalt or tarmac found occupying many home-yards aptly provide the required substructure however whatever your preferred substrate is, make sure it’s laid level.
Crucially, levelled foundations ensure a perpendicular stance arises, one that refrains from encountering leaning pressures plus a vertical standing functions flawless door swings.
ABC Structured Assembly
The High-Store arrives in one large box containing all the parts and instructions.
The box comprises two back / two side panels, two doors, one base & lid in addition to a multitude of vertical strips that interlock with the base & roof whilst simultaneously adjoining the facade panels. Accompanying the main elements regard a selection of different sized screws for fixing the unit together as well as the door hardware.
The beauty relating to the Ultimate Handyman’s installation video is that he visually shows in explicit detail which way up the panels & struts install, fasten & face further to which particular screws are required for each process. Although instructions are a necessity I would be quite confident in constructing the High-Store by means of watching this video on a tablet, pausing whilst implementing what’s shown, due to the thorough demonstration.
He explains top tips regarding drill power settings for automatically screwing in the bolts as well as initially starting off organised, virtue of arranging all the parts in order to the sequence of assembly steps further to basic things most of us are in a rush to ignore suchlike splitting the screws up into small boxes to save frustratingly fumbling around wasting construction time.
Importantly, each screw should be just nipped up tight, an over powered torque setting on a drill driver can over-tighten screws therefore the setting should be adjusted to low to prevent jiggering and rounding the thread.
We found the main element with regard to efficiently building a resin shed entails initially starting off organised. It’s surprising how productive & systematic the building process becomes spending 5 minutes placing the parts orderly prior to commencing.
Weatherproof advantages relate to the ‘one-sheet’ resin manufactured lid & base, adjoining multiple lid sheets usually entails rainfall leaks, virtue of faint gaps. Additionally preventing rainwater seepage regards the roof’s slight overlap, the walls abutment interlocks within the roof’s internal boundary groove prior to securing with screws, the same scenario occurs down at the base.
Keter advise to secure the High-Store down to enhance sturdiness during windy weather. The type of grounding bolts are specific to your foundation material therefore absent. Wood screws secure onto decking whereas concrete anchor bolts deliver firm grounding onto materials suchlike tarmac & paving etc, either way they’re additional requirements.
