The size of the Suncast SSW1200 storage seat is perfect for use as a single person bench, and for easy small storage. It is not a large, bulky item that will take up lots of space or will look out of place. It will fit and look elegantly in any home or garden. The ease of cleaning and maintaining this storage seat is definitely a feature that many people have mentioned and openly spoken about within their review of this Suncast product.

The Details

Due to this storage seat being suitable for indoor and outdoor use, it is built with the most durable and high quality materials. The deck box is made of plastic wicker resin panels — they’re not real wicker with a weave, but designed to look like wicker. While we wouldn’t recommend wicker resin panel furniture pieces, we feel it is a completely appropriate material for use in a deck box/bench seat.

The SSW1200 is only available in the Mocha color scheme, which is a coffee-brown color. It’s ok, not the best color out there, but not the worst either. The wicker resin panel design looks good in the mocha color.

Lid System

The storage system is pretty basic, with a lid that lifts up on two hinges. There is a hinge tab that will keep the lid from flopping all the way over, though there is no piston or hydraulic mechanism to lift the lid. Such systems are common on larger deck boxes, but this box is small enough that these designs are not needed.

Materials Quality

You have full peace of mind with a Suncast product as they construct their products with materials that are suitable for use in all weather. They are water and UV resistant and provide suitable protection from such elements for up to 5 years.
