Storm Kit. Each kit features 4 pieces and includes Fixings.  This is an essential item for log cabin in exposed areas. 

Storm kits are ideal for log cabins positioned within exposed areas such as the Highlands of Scotland, coastal and hilly areas.

Components Included:

  • 4 x Metal Rods at 1.9m
  • 4 x Springs
  • 8 x Meal L Brackets
  • 8 x Nuts for the rods
  • 16 x Fixing screws

These fixings feature spring connections and allow the log cabin to adapt to changes within the timber. As wood is a natural living product it will expand and contract as a result of changing weather conditions.

Alternatively a storm brace can also be made from timber, this will often look nicer and is also the same template if you wish to add shelves, framing etc to your log cabin as the logs can still move independently.

A storm kit is fixed to the top most log always. The lower wall logs are then secured. If you are using a timber version the top log is secured tightly with the lower 'slotted' holes secured but left slightly loose to allow the log cabin to expand and contract unhindered.

Normally for the inside, However if you're like us don't really like how it looks and want to keep it hidden on the outside of the cabin all you need to do is get some purpose metal paint to protect the thread ect from rusting.

Unless you're in a particularly exposed area then the storm kit doesn't need to span the whole height of the cabin but just to the bulk of it from the roof down.

Either this metal one or a timber made one will help secure the log cabin in case of heavy storms or winds.

Please Note: This kit is for four sides of a log cabin.

Great product, easily fitted and good quality, best kept out of site around the back of the cabin if possible

We built our Tuin cabin over the lock down period and had read previous reviews mentioning the storm kit. As we live in a small Scottish fishing village perched on a clifftop in Moray it was decided that we'd be best purchasing this kit asap. We were a bit worried about the diameter of the rods and where to position them but figured out to put them at the corner of each gable inboard of the crossovers - a bit suck it and see. So far the roof and upper gables have stayed put but we're due the usual end of year gusty weather so fingers crossed. There has been the odd blustery night, however everything stayed put. You can hear the spring tension releasing at the end of a hot day with a few pings so they are dealing with the expansion/contraction as they are supposed to. Well worth installing for peace of mind as you may not enjoy a dark night in your cabin without them.

As I live is right on the edge of the Peak district, it is very windy so I took the precaution of fitting the storm braces to my Annabel cabin. Very easy to fit and we did have a few windy days and nothing moved so looks like they are doing the job.

Still not sure what to do with them!
Tuin reply: Thank you for your review, please see this page: https://www.tuin.co.uk/Storm-Kit-for-Log-Cabins.html they are normally installed in the corners of your building, either outside or inside. They connect top logs to lower logs and help greatly in exposed areas to stop anything lifting in high winds.
