The Reinforced Chest is a new variant of normal chests added by the Better Storage mod that comes in different types of metal reinforcement. They differ from Vanilla Chests in a few ways. They have 12 extra slots for storage and are resistant to Creeper explosions. There are 8 variants of reinforced chests: Iron, Gold, Diamond, Emerald, Copper, Tin, Zinc and Silver. All of them, except for Zinc and Silver as their metals do not exist in Hexxit, are craftable. The materials only affect the look, not the quantity that they can hold. You can also lock your reinforced chests by right-clicking the chest with a Lock. They are classified as wooden blocks and as such can be destroyed most efficiently by using Axes.

Just like their normal Minecraft counterparts, they will form a double chest if two Reinforced Chests of the same mineral are placed next to each other.


There are a total of eight reinforced chest variants. They are all crafted similarly. You will need:
