Feedback Regarding Keter’s DUOTECH™ Design

Reviews deliver high class feedback with regards to the Oakland range of sheds consisting of the same DUOTECH™ design manufacture and features this Grande-Store is composed with.

Purchasers adore the rugged appearance and textured wooden touch Oaklands possess whilst the low maintenance benefits set this design structure apart with regards to rotting problems and re-varnishing issues wooden sheds are prone to.

The tongue and groove conformation pleases assemblers with a straightforward construction process however the odd niggle does comes through with regards to the amount of screws required to erect whilst a couple wished for a better handle design.

One important detail we found in relation to all resin sheds: It’s imperative the shed sits on solid level foundations. Solid foundations enable the floor to serve heavy duty demanding pressures whilst a level surface pays homage to the facade panels lining up with ease and doors to swing open and close correctly.

Grand-Store’s Resin Design

Keter’s DUOTECH™ facade structure consists of double walled resin sheets joined together with an internal corrugated structure providing enhanced reinforcement to the panels whilst further shored up with a steel infrastructure increases the construction’s rigidity.

Resembling a delightful appearance of rustic wood to the eye and texture to the touch whilst the combined resin manufacture results in a facade resistant to weather attack. Unsusceptible to rust, rot & decay whilst resistant to fading & cracking in the sun are the benefits that lie within the DUOTECH™ design.

However DUOTECH™ is drill-able, jigsaw cut-able, allows the hanging of items and installation of shelves whilst benefiting from a paintable surface enables adding a statement of colour to enhance any home-yard or leave the wonderful rustic charm the way it is.

Visit Keter’s DUOTECH™ Page for more information and design ideas.

Paintable Walls

To accomplish an easy assembly all DUOTECH™ sheds are designed with a tongue and groove composition, simplifying the construction process. Slot the panels together, wrap around the steel frame, align and secure with screws describes their straightforward assembly procedure.

The beauty however lies within the easy clean nature with regards to the resin surface. A light spray-hose or pressure-wash down when dirty is essentially all this storage facility requires.

Triple Door Grande-Store Access

Access into the Grande-Store couldn’t be any easier. A sloped threshold adjoining the built-in floor provides easy wheeling in duties for trash bins and heavy rolling garden equipment whilst broad twin doors spanning the frontage width open wide providing excellent entry into the facility.

The double doors consist of a DUOTECH™ resin make-up identical to the rest of the facade whilst the roof is one huge 6 ft x 3.5 ft expanse opening up to facilitate easy wheelie bin access.

The lid, manufactured from polypropylene resin resists weather decay and is unsusceptible to rainwater damage resulting in a waterproof topping whist designed with a slight angle ensures an efficient drainage system.

The operation with regards to lifting this heavy top is simplified by virtue of hydraulic pistons. To enable not touching the bins during refuse disposal, a lid-to-lid chain system attaches the wheelie bin lids with the Grande-Store lid opening all lids simultaneously as represented in the wheelie bin images up above.

The Grande-Store incorporates a stainless steel locking mechanism designed for a padlock, securing both doors and lid together accomplishing triple door security.

Inside Keter’s Grande-Store

The Grande-Store offers a variety of outdoor storage solutions from hiding unsightly wheelie bins, parking bikes and kids toys to accommodating gardening equipment and lawn supplies or perhaps the preferred option of a smart looking low height storage facility for patio accessories.

It’s becoming more common nowadays to see a few horizontal sheds designs occupying home gardens due to planning regulations regarding walk-in sheds in certain areas plus many prefer the unobtrusive low height stance like this Grande-Store projects, sheltering below the height of a standard 6ft fenceline.

Integrated into the shed, a built-in floor maintains a clean environment preventing gusts of wind blowing debris inside and rainfall puddling the shed floor whilst the resin manufacture is purposely designed tough to cope with demanding pressures of rolling in wheelie bins and storing weighty equipment.

Air vents are built-in either side of the store providing a current of fresh air to constantly circulate the interior, beneficial to cope with refuse odours whilst preserving storage if used for other purposes.

Brackets are included with this Grande-Store for installing your own wood shelf. Shelf-size measurements are detailed in the instructions. Thick plywood purchased from a local hardware store will make a suitable shelf if intentions are for patio and garden storage.

Grande-Store Maintenance

The benefits of a resin manufacture are the weather-resistant advantages. This Grande-Store will not rust or rot and is immune from weather decay leaving the only maintenance duty of a wash down whenever the muck appears to bring back the pristine appearance that lies beneath.

Hosing down our resin shed with a pressure hose is a job I’ve come to rather enjoy, a few minutes later the new look shines back through making a doddle out of maintenance.

This make-up doesn’t require constant upkeep duties associated with re varnishing, servicing rotten wood, rusting metal nor re-roofing, a huge hassle to which disintegrating roofing felt is concerned due to being susceptible to weather decay.

Although many light detergents work wonders, whenever ingrained dirt becomes hard to shift we apply a couple of cups of white vinegar into a bucket of hot soapy water and remove with a soft brush however this is only once in a while, a pressure hose usually entails the whirlwind wash.

Grande-Store Assembly

The primary issue disregarding which type of resin shed is chosen relates to preparing solid level foundations for the shed to sit on. Wood, concrete or paving are ideal bases for a shed this size, just make certain they’re level.

Abiding by this rule presents a solid base for the built-in floor to serve challenging storage pressures like rolling in heavy wheelie bins & weighty lawn mowers plus assembly becomes straightforward with regards to aligning the panels plumb and the doors to work accordingly.

There are loads of screws unfortunately resulting in a few hours + to finish constructing however the walls are straightforward to erect,  joining together through their tongue and groove conformation whilst screws secure the facade panels to the steel framework.

Assembly regards working through the step by step procedure presented within the instructions.

Once construction is finalised, Keter advise to anchor the floor down onto the foundations through the 4 anchor placements presented within the resin floor.  The type of anchor screws are dependant on the base material, either concrete or wood therefore not supplied.

    Good morning i was interested in the keter grand store accommodating patio accessories 190,5×109.3 x132.5 how much it cost yon thanks .

    • Hi Fortuna,
      I point visitors towards the most reasonable prices and delivery in the UK and USA, here’s the link for you to inspect.

      Check Grande-Store prices:

      Hope this helps,
      Simon.

    Just put one of these together, instructions were clear and helpful. Excellent storage container. I want to use it to store my bike in however the handle only has to move about half an inch before the top can come up and the unit becomes insecure. I have tried a number of padlocks but none work, can you help?

    • Hi Pete,
      I do know someone who assembled the Grande-Store a few months ago and was delighted with the quality of sturdiness and assembly too.

      All they have done is fit a padlock very similar to the one that is shown in the video which hasn’t presented any issues. The handle clips over the clasp aligning the two holes together to enable the padlock to fit through and secure.

      If you watch the video in this post, the padlock design is pretty much identical to how my friend secures his. He watched this video prior to purchasing a similar designed padlock.

      Hope this helps Pete, good luck,
      Simon.

    I have one of this in my side yard. I’m impressed with the quality. It gave me the alternative to store items in my garage, without having to worry about setbacks and HOA requirements. For liking it so much, I gave one for my brother as a gift. Problem now is where can buy again? Costco have ran out of stock.

    • Hi,
      Thanks for calling in to share your Grande-Store review, we appreciate your time.

      Planning permission regarding the average sized walk-in sheds isn’t too strict over here in the UK however I have heard it’s becoming quite strict in certain zones over in the USA, hence the popular alternative regarding these low profile sheds.

      This horizontal style is far easier to assemble, gets around planning issues and fits in tight spaces under the height of a standard 6 ft fence-line. I know quite a few people who have opted for a few of this style to organise their outdoor gear rather than the hassles associated with the large constructions plus their qualities are really pushing boundaries, just like this Grande-Store does.

      The reason it’s difficult to find sellers is due to being new to the market. This Grand-Store page hopefully provides your route, some offer free international shipping if you are in the USA. Hope this helps.

      Thanks again for sharing your review,
      Simon.

    Overall I found your site construct is very nice and the layout very presented.

    Of course the content you provided also awesome such as pros/cons and assembly as well as information about the products. The Maintenance you mentioned above also very reasonable.

    I will definitely bookmark your site and share to my networks especially my family.

    Keep up the good work.

    Thank you

    • Simon

      Hi Maxx,

      Thanks for reading about Keter’s triple wheelie bin storage solution.

      I’m glad you found Quality Plastic Sheds website informative and that you have bookmarked for your future’s family and friends use.

      Obviously there are pros and cons with every product, taking the constructive criticism from feedback expressed through reviews aids this section enormously.

      Yeah, low maintenance outdoor storage solutions are key here, it’s what this website is generally all about.

      Thanks again Maxx, keep calling back in for new reviews,

      Simon.

    My husband and I purchased one of these Keter Grande Store sheds today and I assembled it, with my husband steadying a part for me a couple times. This shed came with about 200 screws, so I suspect it will be very solid. So far I’m really pleased, but our driveway is not fully level, so I’ll have to do a little work to level it out and get the doors to shut more smoothly. Clearly user error, so I’m happy with it. The only other issue was that a several holes they pre-drilled in metal parts were too small for the screws they said to use. Luckily, I had some to substitute. All in all, I think it’s going to be a great place to store my children’s bikes!

    • Hi Alice,
      I do like the look of this Keter Grande-Store. We too are interested in an additional low height shed for the patio to store the garden furniture as ours will fit according to the internal measurements making it an ideal size for the location we’re thinking.

      Like your assembly consisting of two people, this is the way to go, one supporting the pieces whilst the other secures with screws, it makes the process go much smoother. 200 screws is a lot, all Keter’s Duotech range are the same but like you say this amount should increase the store’s sturdiness as something has to tie it all together.

      Solid level foundations really are key to any resin shed because a level base eases assembly due to all the parts aligning plumb, level foundations ensure the doors line up correctly plus there’s equal pressure from the top across all sides providing a vertical stance without any leaning pressures. Solid foundations provide a firm base for the floor to serve heavy duty demanding pressures, it’s specifically designed for this purpose as long it stands on the correct foundations.

      Yeah, I think it looks an ideal store for kids bikes, stylish too. Hope it serves you all well,
      Thanks again Alice,
      Simon.

  6. Carolyn

    This seems to be a high-end shed.

    I love the fact that it uses a hydraulic piston. I find the ones I used before really heavy and bulky. I often had my fingers injured when try to lift it.
    This feature is must for such a large and heavy lid. It’s a great alternative to keep raccoons away from your garbage.They can do a lot of damage!

    Do you know if this is available in Canda as well?

    Thanks!

    • Simon

      Hi Carolyn,

      This Keter Grande-Store is new to the market. At present I have only seen one place offered for sale in the UK to which I have linked visitors to so in time as distribution builds I would presume it will be offered Worldwide as their other ranges are.

      The Grande-Store is part of Keter’s new DUOTECH range. This range started with their Oakland sheds. Due to excellent reviews and sales they have expanded their range to now include a High-Store, Deck Box, Patio-store and an extra large 7.5 x 11 ft superior shed.

      Yes I know which type of wheelie bin store you describe. These lids are heavy due to the expanse they cover, you find the new quality horizontal resin sheds this size are starting to incorporate hydraulic pistons like this Grande-Store uses.

      Yeah, I bet raccoons can do a lot of damage. I live in the UK, only squirrels can become a nuisance here, this is nothing compared with what you’ve gotta put up with.

      Thanks again Carolyn or commenting. In time the Keter Grande-Store will start appearing on the market. As soon as I see it available I will be linking visitors towards.

      Simon.

  7. Jonathan

    Looks like a durable product. I like how much space it offers. Now to determine whether I want to use if for my lawn and garden tools or the family bicycles. Maybe I can buy two of them. I like the material they use to build these storage bins. I know they will be able to withstand the weather for years to come. Not to mention, you can always paint them!

    • Simon

      Hi Jonathan,

      Thanks for calling in and dropping a comment.

      This is a new material called DUOTECH™ Keter started using this material with their Oakland range of sheds, it’s a wood resin composite that’s strong durable and weatherproof , resisting rot and decay. Since receiving a volume of sales accompanied by exceptional feedback they have expanded their range with a whole variety of outdoor storage solutions like this Grande-Store.

      Building regs regarding erecting large walk-in sheds are becoming quite strict in certain areas and like you suggest, a few of this horizontal design are becoming a prefered option for many wishing to escape applying for planning permission and relishing the prospect of an easy assembly, this certainly delivers.

      Yeah, this is the first resin style shed to enter the market with a paintable surface allowing you to add a splash of colour to brighten up your home yard. Some of Keters photos regarding painted DUOTECH™ ranges look superb, I must say.

      I think Keter are at the start of something big here, this range is going to be very popular.

      Thanks again Jonathan for your interest, good luck choosing,

      Simon.

  8. Matt's Mom

    Great product Simon! I have just moved into my new house and will be in need some storage. I have bookmarked your site, so I can look further once I have gotten everything unpacked and situated. I like this triple wheelie bin storage. Even just to have for the trash bins. It is a great way to hide the ugly city provided trash receptacles. Looks like I might be needing this and a shed 🙂

    • Simon

      Hi Matt’s Mom,

      Thanks for visiting.

      Moving is such a stressful time. We moved house about 18 months ago, what an upheaval. You seem to be living out of boxes for ages. Take it one step at a time, you’ll get there.

      I’m writing a couple of reviews per week at present so there’s something new every week entering onto this website. There’s some new yet very stylish designs hitting the market this year.

      This Keter Grande-Store for instance is brand new so the prices do vary when stock becomes low. Over time the market will settle but there’s a bit of supply and demand taking place with this model at present.

      This provides so many storage solutions, like wheelie trash bin storage, patio accessories, gardening equipment, bikes and kids toys etc, etc and the reason for their popularity is the low height, easier assembly and designed to fit in tight spaces whilst serving storage needs plus the low maintenance benefits are the huge draw.

      Good luck with sorting out those boxes. It all takes a bit of time but you will get there.

      Thanks again,

      Simon.
