Quality

Keter Sumatra is made of weather-resistant polypropylene resin. The quality is good, deck box feels sturdy and well made. Body panels are thick compared to deck boxes from other companies. So sturdy that you can in fact sit on it as the lid is capable of holding 770 lbs of pounds.

Sitting on it causes mixed feelings – on one hand the construction feels solid and doesn’t show any signs it couldn’t handle weight of two average adults, on the other hand resin which is basically a plastic doesn’t produce a mental image of being a sturdy material which in turn can cause eerie feeling even though deck box seem to be able to handle the weight.

Because resin is very light material Keter Sumatra deck box can be moved by stronger wind when empty.
