Note that this kit provides sufficient reinforcement parts for an 8x10 shed. In other words, you will have more than enough parts for 8-foot wide storage shed from Lifetime for any length shorter than 10 feet, and not enough parts for any length longer than 10 feet. You can order additional snow load kits to reinforce the roof trusses here; all other parts needed for sheds longer than 10 feet will need to be purchased directly through Lifetime Products - 1-800-225-3865.
This kit is not compatible with Lifetime garden sheds (sheds with the entry on the length side of the shed instead of the 8-foot sides), on 7-foot wide sheds, storage buildings (sheds with an 11-foot width), or models 60086 and 60085.
Make your Lifetime shed even tougher with this extreme weather kit accessory. The 60011 is designed to help reinforce the roof trusses, walls, doors, and floor. Steel channels increase the ability of the shed to withstand heavier snow fall and higher winds. In fact, adding this kit to your 8-foot wide Lifetime shed will help your building actually exceed wind pressure requirements for Dade County, Florida. This Lifetime shed weather kit has sufficient components to reinforce 3 trusses, which is enough to support the trusses of the 6405 Lifetime storage shed. So, if you live in an area where you get frequent heavy snow loads or high winds or both, consider getting this extreme weather kit for your 8-foot wide shed.
