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.

Compents Included:

  • 4 x Metal Rods at 2m
  • 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.

Hi just purchased the storm kit for my peter cabin a very good idea gives good piece of mind if you live in an area exposed to high winds fairly easy to install and good value as it seems good quality.

We didn't think about this until the people erecting the summer house mentioned it. We ordered it; it arrived quickly and was installed and is neatly set on the outside of the structure. We hope we will never need to prove it is good but if we have stormy weather that challenges it, then we are expecting g it to do the job and protect our lovely summer house. .

Not the most attractive item but a necessity just for some added safety

These were fitted easily - there being only one which can be seen but does not detract from the favourable appearance of the cabin.
