Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Windproof If you buy the shed, you need this too!!
I am so glad I purchased this kit. It has strengthened the entire shed and I even adapted the center rail (the one that runs through the handle) with holes at each end to add padlocks. I use this rail to secure the doors. I also use the wall strengthening beams to attach brackets for hanging tools (like the Whirlpool Guardian wall system).
Thank God I thought to add this kit. It really adds a whole lot of strength to the 10 x 8 Premier shed. I'm not going to have to worry about the wind in our area. Best $300 I ever spent.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dennis Looks great when finally done.
You HAVE to inventory every section of shed and also the wind load kit. When you are putting it together you have to call to find "trick" to putting panels together. Some of the panels snapped together others had to have the seals cut to allow it to snap together. You have to jump from set od instructions back and forth between the shed and then the wind load kit...not a good set up. None of the items are marked and you have to ID from small pictures and/or call the customer service line. We called three times and this is my 5th shed (1st from this company). It took the 3 of us 5 hard days to construct wood platform and put shed together.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Michael REAL HARD TO INSTALL
When calculating cost in Florida, add $400 for High Wind Kit and about a $1,000 for a slab. It pased tests to withstand 135 m/hr winds in Dade County (Miami), but on a concrete slab. Installation may take 3-4 days, not counting the slab, and you need to have variety of professional tools. Battery drill will not cut it. You need help of someone who is accustomed to drill in cement, metal, etc. However, once done, it could probably be used as a tornado shelter. It is sturdy and looks good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ELMO Best shed I could find in a kit
Takes patience to assemble. The wind load kit directions are not well integrated with the shed assembly instructions. Once it is complete, it is a great value. Should do well in wind storms.
