Keter’s Patio-Store regards the new-age of stylish low-maintenance resin designs represented within the outdoor patio storage cabinets range. Keter’s expanding DUOTECH™ range now constitutes: Walk-In Sheds, Horizontal Sheds, High-Stores, Deck Boxes and this delectable Patio-Store.
DUOTECH™ represents an innovative resin design, resistant to weather decay, boasting durability and weatherproof credentials critical to protect storage against the outdoor elements whilst displaying the gorgeous look and feel of rustic wood.
This new type of manufactured facade first entered the market with Keter’s Oakland Garden Sheds. After receiving first class feedback the High-Store was born also acquiring wondrous reviews, leading Keter to expand their range across multiple outdoor storage solutions.
We decided to side-step the hassles wooden storage facilities entail by moving into the quality resin style after yearly upkeep duties associated with wood rot, weather decay & yearly re-varnishing, a problem wood is prone to when subject to the outside elements, not to forget the frequent frustrations roofing felt succumbs to. Hassles now replaced with the minimalist role of a quick wash down.

Keter’s Patio-Store Features
Although Patio-Store’s attraction displays a sublime silvery-grey weathered-wood appearance, DUOTECH™ design also enables decorating with a splash of colour, enhancing accents to complement any garden’s scenery due to the delivery of a paintable surface derived from Keter’s unique resin-talc formula.
The composite polypropylene make-up from the roof, walls and built-in floor eliminates future conservation issues, resisting rot & decay problems whilst manufactured to prevent fading, dents appearing and peeling. A simple wash-down to restore the shine regards their only maintenance.

DUOTECH™ is purposely designed stronger than their preceding ranges accompanying higher quality finishing touches which flows through reviews to high acclaim as does their ease of assembly regarding a tongue & groove construction process however huggins of screws are required to build Oakland sheds, not that this presents too much of problem here but there are quite a few.
DUOTECH™ Facade Composition
The walls display a silvery vertical panelled shimmer whilst up close to the touch, a feel of textured wood transpires however the beauty of maintaining the glamorous looks in minimal time lies in the resin surface, a simple wash down or wipe over with a wet cloth is all it takes to bring back assembly day’s pristine finish.
Manufactured from polypropylene resin delivers an impervious weatherproof surface, each tongue and grooved section is molded into two resin sheets bound together by a corrugated reinforced internal structure intensifying their robustness.
This versatile storage unit is unsusceptible to weather decay, resisting rot and rust, UV stabilised prevents bleaching and cracking when subject to sunburn attack whilst due to the sturdy make-up of the dual walled skin, the resistance to denting prevents that unattractive appearance developing, an issue thin skinned opposition & flimsy metal constructions are prone to.
What’s Your Chosen Colour?
DUOTECH™ delivers a paintable surface, a first for an outdoor resin composition allowing customising in your chosen colour to enhance any outdoor’s surroundings in your personal style.
The types of paints recommended are: Exterior water-based acrylic paint either in a Solid, Light-Shade, Satin or Semi-Gloss finish however like any paintable surface, after a while this will probably require re-painting due to weather-fade, albeit without decay issues to deal with.
Robust Patio-Store Features
The resin top benefits structurally being one complete impermeable piece of double lined resin. Extending beyond the facade escapes the occurrence of water seeping in at the top of the walls providing a barrier against rainfall, resulting in maintaining a dry internal environment.
Once the shed is constructed the top assures stability offering supplementary storage space. Items can be placed on top or a feature can be created: For example, planters displayed across the top accentuate additional enhancements to suit surroundings.
The floor adjoins the walls creating a true built-in feature providing enclosure to the outer environment resulting in a clean internal space enhancing storage preservation qualities.
Patio-Store’s built-in floor regards a manufacture of polypropylene, molded into a thickset bed purposely strengthened to cope with storing weighty items whilst a sloped threshold enables the easy rolling-in of a small lawnmower and other wheeling equipment.

Maintaining Keter’s Patio-Store
Keeping the pristine finish regards the most basic of operations. An effortless wash down with warm water containing washing-up liquid usually suffices by using a soft brush or cloth. Many just lightly spray them down.
Any ingrained dirt usually comes away with mild detergent however now and again we add white vinegar into warm soapy water to remove any stubborn marks. Works great for us.
No rust or rot is associated with this type of resin manufacture therefore weather decay isn’t an issue. If wishes are to refrain from panting then only a wash down is required without involving re-coats of varnish, paint or wood preserve.
If you decide to brighten up your patio by adding a splash of colour however, over time the colour may fade requiring future re-coats yet without the hassles of rot to deal with.
