Stories like that make us extremely proud, because we love to protect what you love. But stories like that also make us curious. So, we asked ourselves: What are the physical limits of our products?
Well, we tested it! In our new YouTube series 'Don't Try This at Home!', we take on deck box after deck box and get to the bottom of how much our products can really take.

Has your deck ever been caught in the middle of a water balloon fight? Or gotten in the way of a pressure washer? In Episode 4, the WATER TEST will show how waterproof the Boulder is. Even when thrown into a swimming pool ...
