Borneo’s Wicker Composition

The Borneo exhibits either a grey or espresso-brown shade displayed in rattan styling however the beauty lies within the polypropylene resin manufacture and the way the box is designed weatherproof, delivering a safe haven for storage. Inside a dry and ventilated environment provides an ideal atmosphere for storing patio furniture cushions.

Inside the box, you’re not presented with the modern styling Borneo’s outer-surface exhibits, rather a plethora of resin ridges critical for delivering sturdiness and stability to the construction.

Unlike their wooden counterparts, polypropylene is resistant to weather decay. The inherent problem wood represents covering a lid this expanse regards the frequent upkeep duties requiring regular re-varnishing to preserve, the same applies to roofing-felt’s rapid disintegration problems & inability to survive damp conditions. Polypropylene on the other hand is immune from weather attack, requiring no wood-stain, paint nor varnish nurturing projects to conserve.

Borneo’s only maintenance involves the small task of a wipe-down when dirty to replenish their shine, many just lightly spay-hose the surface down once in a while. Hard to shift dirt is best removed with a soft brush dipped in warm water & mild detergent as this gets into the rattan crevices more easily.

Although the sleek wood-like wicker design complements any outdoor space with modern eye-appeal the composition is robust enough to seat two people. Whether additional seating is on the agenda or a place to sit in a homes entrance whilst tying shoelaces, the Borneo caters for such services.

There’s some wondrous feedback received from Keter products regarding their resistance to fading and cracking when subject to the sun. Technical advances have now evolved to toughen and UV stabilise the polypropylene ensuring resistance to splitting whilst withstanding inherent colour-fade problems associated with unprotected plastic when sunburn attacks.

Polypropylene delivers durability & stylish advantages, there’s no doubt however it’s also environmentally friendly, being 100% recyclable.

    Hi Simon,

    I absolutely loved the reading!
    I’ve made a storage box with some woods that were thrown in my garage:). The box has been exposed to water and snow, and today it looks really in bad shape. So I need a new brand storage box that can hold a lot of gear inside. This one seems to be of high quality. I love the Gray box. I just would like to know if it’s waterproof?
    Thank you in advance!

    • Simon

      Hi Daniella,

      Thanks for calling in to read about Keter’s Borneo wicker resin storage box, glad you enjoyed the review.

      The trouble with wood, especially in a deck box style is their inability to survive the weather elements & damp conditions, leading to their structural demise through rot & decay, the reason wood deck boxes are seldom seen nowadays. 

      Borneo’s polypropylene composition on the other-hand is immune from weather decay, the only maintenance required regards a swift wash down when the grime appears.

      The internal storage capacity of the Borneo is 110 Gallons, quite a large box that can accommodate a whole plethora of gear. Inspect alternative deck boxes if slightly larger dimensions are required, there’s a whole variety of different styles to choose from.

      The strange thing about deck boxes, whether a wood or resin composition is chosen is non are waterproof. 

      Polypropylene make-up is waterproof, however their click-into-place assembly procedure has faint gaps within their interlocking mechanisms, meaning they will leak if fully immersed. They are however all designed weatherproof, to repel rainwater falling down upon them and maintain a dry internal environment.

      Hope this helps & thanks again Daniella. Good luck with your decision,

      Simon.

    Simon,the post is very well put together with good color and pictures as well as very good wording in the paragraphs. The benefits of having a weather-resistant surface that’s effortless to maintain a spotless appearance whilst protecting storage keeping it dry and ventilated inside can be priceless especially if you have children around.

    • Simon

      Hi Chappy,

      Thanks for calling in and reading about Keter’s wicker resin storage box.

      Yeah, low maintenance constructions manufactured from resin cut out all future headaches regarding upkeep work, resisting rust, rot and decay whilst cleaning the facade relates to just the simple requirement of a wash down once the dirt starts to appear.

      Child friendly pistons incorporated into this wicker box provide the benefits by supporting most of the lid’s weight, resisting the lid slamming shut and trapping fingers whilst aiding the opening as the gas pressure takes over lifting as you start to enter.

      The features built into Keter’s wicker garden box provide an effortless duty to clear the space at a moments notice, making it an ideal storage solution for kids toys scattering the garden.

      Thanks again Chappy,

      Simon.

    The Borneo Storage Box in Espresso Brown is my favorite, and I love the fact that I can use this on my sun-porch as well as outdoors in my backyard.

    It is the perfect size, actually, to store my winter coats and scarves! I can also use it as a coffee table. I am really impressed with the material which seems to be much easier to maintain than real wicker. This looks like wicker but without the difficulty of dusting and cleaning.

    The automatic opening mechanism, combined with the storage padlock really kicks this up a notch over the competitors.

    Definitely on my list of purchases, and wondering if it comes in any other colors?

    • Simon

      Hi Amy,

      I know quite a few people who locate these deck boxes indoors, especially in the entrance to their home for placing outdoor gear like boots and shoes etc inside, their attractive stance and seating ability combined with storage potential captures interest. Also to hide toys, work tools and sporting equipment indoors is a growing popular idea.

      We decided to choose one consisting of a flat lid for table services on our patio, its been a great decision on our behalf. To occupy furniture seating covers whilst serving as a table plus seating ability when guests visit combines 3 useful services in one, great for a patio.

      Quite a few deck boxes are now installing the automatic opening mechanism for the lid. Gas shock pistons take over opening once you start to lift the lid, they keep the lid ajar when full opened easing storage duties whilst preventing the full weight of the lid slamming shut which is hugely beneficial preventing fingers getting trapped.

      The Borneo just comes in grey and brown however if you select Storage Deck Boxes in the top menu there are plenty of alternative coloured deck boxes in different sizes, all receiving fab reviews, take a look.

      Thanks again Amy and good luck with your deck box choice,

      Simon.

    This Borneo Storage Box is very luxurious. I like it. I do have a question. In the event I place something on it or sit on it. So how much weight can this box withstand? Also in case the kids want to beat it up for no apparent reason, how tough is this box?

    • Simon

      Hi Kendrick,

      Thanks for stopping by and reading about Keter’s Borneo Storage Box.

      Yeah, they look smart and will seat 2 people comfortably, their design complements any outdoor or indoor space. This type of box is so versatile to what people use them for.

      This box will hold approximately 50kg / 110lb of inside storage weight however the lid is able to hold a weight of 220kg / 485lb, so as you can probably imagine it will seat 2 adults comfortably.

      Like anything Kendrick, there’s a limit to how much a resin box like this will stand before it becomes beaten up. If you are after a stronger style I would take a look at Lifetime’s large deck box as this is a more robust dual skinned composition: https://qualityplasticsheds.com/extra-large-deck-storage-box

      Hope this helps and thanks again for your interest,

      Simon.
