Gate House Furniture ECO Crates are incredibly versatile. They can be used in any direction (face up, face down, or on its side) to add color, height and excitement to any indoor/outdoor buffet or foodservice display. They can also be used to store items by the pool, beach or even at a kids club. Easy to clean. Won’t chip, rust or fade when used outdoors. Made from recycled plastic, the crate will not show wear and tear with prolonged use because the material has through color.
