Putting together the Grande-Store is a breeze! This nifty triple-wheelie bin storage unit effortlessly assembles itself to give you a sleek and compact solution for housing three wheelie bins. It’s made with Duotech’s weather-resistant resin in a stylish silver design.
The Keter Grande-Store is here to make your life easier! Not only does it serve as a recycling station for your backyard, but it’s also incredibly versatile.
You can use it as a storage space for your gardening equipment, a parking spot for two adult bikes and two kids bikes, a shelter for outdoor toys. Maybe, a place to store your patio essentials and barbecue gear or a spot for your sports equipment. Perhaps, a home for your work tools, or even a dry-log store for those chilly winter months. The options are endless!
Ever since Keter introduced their amazing Oakland sheds to the market, they’ve received fantastic feedback. This led them to expand their DUOTECH™ range, offering a variety of outdoor storage solutions, including deck boxes, tall storage units, and low-height facilities like the Grande-Store.
We decided to say goodbye to wooden sheds because we were tired of the constant maintenance and roofing issues. With the Duotech material, you no longer have to spend hours dealing with rot and re-varnishing. Now, all it takes is a quick and easy spray with a light-pressure hose to keep this type of weather-resistant resin in top shape.
Grande-Store’s Handy Features
With dimensions of 6 ft wide, 3½ ft deep, and 4 ft high, the Grande-Store is the perfect solution for hiding those unsightly wheelie bins. Its stylish silvery tones add a modern touch to any outdoor space, while the recyclable material ensures it won’t decompose over time.
To enhance the Grande-Store’s trendy appearance and weather resistance, the fascia is made with double-lined panels for extra durability. It’s also reinforced with a sturdy steel infrastructure.
Inside, you’ll find ample space to store a variety of items, including your wheelie bins. Make sure to measure your trash bins and storage ideas using the internal measurements provided in this post to ensure they fit perfectly.
The Grande-Store incorporates these handy features:
To make your wheelie bin experience even more convenient, the Grande-Store comes with a lid-lid chain opening kit. This nifty feature allows you to attach the bin lids to the Grande-Store’s lid, so when you swing open the Grande-Store lid, all the bin lids open together. This means you can dispose of your rubbish without touching the bins, promoting a hygienic environment.
Air vents are strategically placed on either side of the Grande-Store to keep waste odours at bay. These vents continuously circulate fresh air, preventing any unpleasant smells from building up inside the storage unit.
Thanks to hydraulic pistons, opening and closing the lid becomes a doddle. The wide double doors at the front of the Grande-Store make accessing your bins super easy. The heavy-duty floor is designed to handle heavy trash loads and has a sloped entry threshold, making it effortless to wheel the bins in and out.
If you want to customize the appearance of your Grande-Store, you’re in luck! The DuoTech™ walls can be painted in any colour you desire, allowing you to blend the store seamlessly with your garden surroundings. Plus, if you need extra storage space, there are shelf supports included for adding a shelf and storing additional accessories.
Assembling the Grande-Store is straightforward, thanks to its tongue and groove edges. While there are plenty of screws involved, the streamlined design makes the process smoother. For added security, the fascia features a stainless steel locking mechanism and a padlock-style handle.

Stores up to 3 Wheelie Trash Bins
Weatherproof Rustic Looks
Get ready for weatherproofed rustic looks with the Grande-Store! The fascia is made up of two separate panels joined together with an internal corrugated structure, and steel reinforcements provide a sturdy and dent-resistant finish.
With its silver pigments mixed in with the recyclable polypropylene, the Grande-Store beautifully mimics the appearance of weathered wood. The moulding process creates a deep textured grain that feels great to the touch. Plus, additional UV inhibitors are added to protect the unit from sun damage, preventing it from blistering or fading.
No need to worry about corrosion or rot with the Grande-Store. It’s designed to withstand all types of weather, from heavy rain and continuous dampness to snowfall and scorching heat. And the best part is, keeping it looking fresh couldn’t get any easier.
Simply connect the shower connector to your hosepipe, turn the nozzle to jet, and give the fascia a quick wash. Most people prefer using a light pressure wash, but if you have ingrained moss, a bucket of warm water, a soft brush, and a squirt of detergent will do the trick.
The DUOTECH™ manufacturing process allows for customization. You can easily paint the surface to match your preferences and brighten up your home yard. Acrylic emulsion paint (often labelled as bathroom and kitchen paint in DIY stores) works great. Of course, you can also choose to leave the rustic charm of the Grande-Store as it is and enjoy its wonderful natural appearance.

Triple Wheelie Bin Access Made Easy
Access to those wheelie bins is an easy task with the Grande-Store. It’s very manageable to get inside. The entrance features a sloping threshold that helps you wheel your bins in or park your lawnmower. And when it comes to opening up the storage unit, the wide twin doors provide plenty of space to manoeuvre even the largest bins.
The double doors are made of the same DUOTECH™ material as the fascia, ensuring durability and a cohesive look. The roof, measuring a whopping 6 ft x 3½ ft, is made of weather-resistant polypropylene with UV protection. It opens up effortlessly, making it super easy to access your wheelie bins.
The lid is 100% reusable and designed to withstand any weather conditions. It’s impermeable to rainwater, providing reliable protection. Plus, its slight angle allows for efficient drainage during rainfall.
Thanks to hydraulic pistons, lifting the heavy lid is a breeze. The lid also features a soft-close mechanism, preventing any sudden crashing. For hands-free refuse disposal, the Grande-Store comes with chains that attach the bin lids to the storage unit’s lid. This means you can open all the lids simultaneously, as shown in the wheelie bin images above.
To add a touch of security, the Grande-Store is equipped with a padlockable stainless steel locking mechanism. This keeps both doors and the lid securely closed, giving you peace of mind.
Inside Keter’s Grande-Store
Step inside Keter’s Grande-Store and discover a world of versatile outdoor storage solutions. This spacious unit is perfect for hiding those unsightly wheelie trash bins, parking your bikes, storing sports equipment, providing a shelter for outdoor toys, or even storing your gardening tools and lawn supplies. It can also serve as a sleek low-height storage facility for your patio accessories.
With stricter planning regulations in some areas, many people are opting for horizontal storage units like the Grande-Store. They are easier to install and conveniently fit below the standard 6 ft fence line, making them a popular choice for home gardens.
The integrated floor of the Grande-Store helps maintain a clean environment. The fascia panels interlock within the perimeter, preventing wind-blown debris, critters, and rainwater from entering the shed. The robust resin floor construction is specifically designed to withstand the weight of wheelie bins and heavy equipment.
Air vents are strategically positioned on either side of the Grande-Store to ensure proper ventilation and prevent odours and moisture buildup. This feature is particularly useful if you plan to use the storage unit for other purposes. The Grande-Store can accommodate either two 96 GAL / 360 Litre wheelie bins or three 63 GAL / 240 Litre wheelie bins.
Brackets are included for those who want to install their own wooden shelf. The instructions provide detailed cutting measurements. Thick plywood purchased from local hardware stores can serve as suitable shelving.
Virtually Maintenance-Free – A quick wash brings back the shine
Maintaining the Grande-Store is a walk in the park thanks to its resilient resin construction. With Duotech material, you don’t have to worry about rust, rot, or decomposition. Simply give it a wash down when it gets dirty to restore its pristine appearance.
I actually enjoy hosing down our resin shed with a jet spray. It only takes a few minutes, and the shed looks brand new again. Maintenance couldn’t be easier.
Unlike traditional sheds, this material doesn’t require constant upkeep like varnishing, dealing with rotten wood, or replacing the roof. You won’t have to worry about disintegrating roofing felt or weather-related decay. However, if you decide to paint the silver fascia, keep in mind that the colour may fade over time and require a recoat.
If stubborn dirt becomes ingrained, a bucket of warm soapy water and a soft-bristle brush will do the trick. But honestly, we rarely need to do this. Most of the time, a whirlwind wash with a hosepipe is all it takes to keep a resin shed looking great.
When it comes to assembling the Grande-Store, the main thing to consider is having a solid and level foundation. Whether it’s timber decking, concrete, asphalt, tarmac, or paving, make sure the surface is flat.
Having a level foundation ensures that the built-in floor can handle the weight of full wheelie bins. Assembling the shed is a straightforward process of aligning the panels correctly and making sure the doors swing vertically.
While there are many screws involved, the installation itself is quite simple. Just follow the steps outlined in the instructions, and you’ll be good to go.
Once the construction is complete, you have the option to anchor the floor to the foundation using the provided anchor placements. This adds extra stability to the Grande-Store and ensures it stays in place.
