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.

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 secure the log cabin in case of heavy storms or winds.

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

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.

I ordered these as I am in a windy location. Seem a little expensive for what they are but if they do the job it is money well spent! All other Tuin advice has been excellent so I have followed their advice on these as well.

Easy it fit, and if they help secure the building in stormy weather then great!

So pleased i ordered this, it gives such peace of mind. i live on the top of a valley and the wind really gusts here. My builder fitted the kit easily, i would recommend the storm kit to anyone living in windy areas. And it is good value too.
