Material

The Keter 8’x6’ Factor Large is a big shed mostly made from polypropylene resin along with steel reinforcement. Resin plastic has a number of benefits that are ideal for this outdoor structure. We’ll cover this more later, but one of the best benefits is that resin plastic is completely weatherproof. Wooden sheds look great, but they are damaged by the sun and moisture. Not plastic. This material can survive in almost any environment with ease.

Let’s also talk about toughness. Some people believe that plastic sheds are flimsy, but nothing could be further from the truth. The Keter Factor shed is very sturdy. It will never peel, rust, or rot, and even putting a dent in it is tough. Whether you have roughhousing children or plan on doing lots of outdoor projects, any accidental bumps or hits shouldn’t damage the shed at all.

While this material is already highly durable, Keter added steel reinforcement for even more sturdiness and protection. This will ensure it doesn’t bend or break even in heavy winds and storms. If durability and practicality are your main concerns, then you can’t get better material than this.

Weather Resistance

Sheds have no choice but to stay outside and face the elements. While many people choose wood because it’s the traditional material, but in really isn’t that great against the elements. It fades and warps from the sun, absorbs water, and needs painting every few years. Now let’s compare that to the Keter Factor Large plastic shed.

Polypropylene resin doesn’t absorb any rain or snow. You’ll never have to worry about the shed swelling or rotting from water absorption, plus it will prevent water from seeping in and destroying your objects. For extra protection, the roof is sloped to naturally push away rain and snow during big storms.

What about the sun? Years of sun exposure can destroy weaker materials, but not this shed. It can withstand years of sun exposure and never weaken, lighten, or suffer any sun damage. Whether your summers are mild or terribly hot and inhospitable, this shed can take it all without any problem.

There’s also the wind. Some people face high winds that can blow over weaker structures. Plastic is naturally lighter than some other materials, so you might be realistically worried about this shed be taken by the wind and flying off. The Keter Large is rated against 65mph winds, which should be enough for most climates. This is thanks to its superior construction and the steel reinforcement definitely helps.

Storage Features and More

This fairly large shed offers 285 square feet of storage space and has numerous benefits and storage features. Starting from the outside, you can’t help but notice the wonderful taupe color and wooden texture. This allows the shed to work with all your outdoor decorations as it doesn’t overpower anything. You’ll also see the large double doors. Not only are they lockable for extra security and peace of mind, but they open widely so that you can easily access every area of the shed.
