Keter Shed Buyers Guide

The plastic shed market is booming and Keter – an Israeli manufacturer and marketer of resin-based household and garden consumer products – has firmly established itself internationally as one of the market leaders. Plastic sheds have become more popular in recent years as technological advances have seen the once-controversial alternative to timber evolve into durable, stylish, low maintenance outdoor storage units that are perfect for low-maintenance gardens and those of us whose fingers have never felt particularly green!

Keter claims the key to their global success is “their ongoing commitment to enhance and simplify the daily lives of their customers through practical, innovative and sustainable designs that can be enjoyed season after season” and judging by the hundreds of positive reviews that can be found online, it seems pretty apparent that Keter has, and is still, delivering on its promise to supply consumers with high-quality, cost-efficient, low-maintenance garden storage that’s lightweight and easy to assemble, and come in a range of styles, sizes and neutral shades.

Constructed from injection moulded, durable plastic, Keter sheds are made to be weather resistant, fade-free and easy clean, so you can get on with storing your bits and pieces, without the hassle of ongoing maintenance playing on your mind.

Available in a variety of styles and sizes Keter sheds provide the perfect solution for your garden storage needs. There are seven different styles in the Keter shed range available online in the UK:

  • Artisan
  • Factor
  • Fusion

Plastic & the environment

A plastic shed is sounding more and more appealing but you’ve got a niggle when it comes to plastic… you feel guilty spending 10p on a plastic supermarket carrier bag never mind a full-size outdoor storage unit!!

  • Keter uses the largest volume of recycled plastic in the outdoor storage industry
  • Last year, 41% of all the plastic used by Keter was sourced from recycled material.

Are Keter sheds eco-friendly?

Keter doesn’t shy away from the environmental concerns surrounding plastic but it does put forward a very convincing argument when asked to justify the role of plastic within its outdoor storage.

Keter is quick to state that alternatives to plastic such as wood and metals demand around 82% more energy to produce, creating approximately three times more carbon dioxide output. Keter doesn’t even attempt to play down the detrimental impact plastic has on the environment but is quick to add that this is only really the case when plastic goods fail to be designed and used responsibly.

Keter states on its UK website, “We don’t believe in single-use plastic products.  Our products are designed to last a lifetime and we want all our products to have minimal impact on the earth but still perform to our and your expectations. We take various measures to minimize our operational footprint, from manufacturing to distribution and recycling, while maintaining a high level of product quality. We want to create sustainable value through our business activities and are currently updating our metrics and targets to allow us to track performance progress in the coming years.”
