Storage boxes are a type of container used for storing, organising or transporting items. Also known as storage baskets, storage containers or storage crates, they make sure that your home, office, or workstation is neat.
Boxes are measured in volume, with their sizes expressed in litres. Calculating the volume factors in three different measurements, storage boxes with the same storage capacity might have different dimensions. It's important to always check the dimensions in addition to the volume when picking a storage box.
RS carries a great selection of storage boxes, ranging from large storage tubs that can hold big items like rope, power tools, and equipment, to small containers that are perfect for storing components or small tools.
