Customer Reviews

If you live in an area that is subject to high winds and extra-heavy snowfall, consider beefing up your 8 ft Lifetime storage shed with the Lifetime Extreme Weather kit.This kit anchors the shed to your shed platform from top to bottom using interior steel support channels which bolt from the roof trusses directly into the floor to reinforce doors, walls, and roof trusses. Roof trusses are reinforced with 4 large gussets (front and back) per truss as well as an additional short truss brace across the top for each long truss. The Extreme Weather Kit increases the roof load capacity of your shed from 23 psf without the kit, to 30 psf with kit installed. (That's a 2400 lb weight load capacity for an 8 x 10! ). The kit will also increase the wind speed rating from 11 psf to 20 psf (65 mph without the kit to 94 mph with the kit installed).

IMPORTANT: The Extreme Weather Kit provides reinforcements for UP TO THREE ROOF TRUSSES. If you have an 8 x 12.5 ft Lifetime shed, you will need to purchase one additional Snow Load Kit. This kit is not designed for the Lifetime 10' x 8' or 15' x 8' Garden Buildings.

Note: Meets Dade Co. Florida shed code requirements. The installation of the Extreme Weather Kit ensures that your Lifetime shed will exceed wind pressure requirements for non-inhabited structures in Dade County, Florida. For more information regarding the code, please reference 2007 Code 1620.5 in the Dade County NOA document.

Designed for extreme weather conditions with steel support channels that anchor roof, walls, and door of the structure directly to the ground as well as roof truss reinforcement brackets
