Anchor Kits - Arrow sheds must be properly anchored after assembly to keep them secure in high wind conditions. Arrow recommends that if you need to leave the structure before it is completely assembled, the corners of the shed should be temporarily anchored to the base. Weights such as patio blocks or sandbags should be placed on top of the floor frame or base.
Concrete Anchor Kit (AK100) - Larger Arrow buildings, particularly those bigger than 10X14, should be assembled on a concrete pad. The concrete anchor kit is perfect for this as it includes four steel corner gussets and perimeter clips, lag bolts which go directly into the slab, and a quarter inch masonry drill bit for making these holes.
Earth Anchor Kit (AK4) - The earth anchor kit includes four 30 inch heavy duty steel augers and 60 feet of cable, along with four cable clamps. Structures larger than 10X9 should use two earth anchor kits.
Floor Frame Kit - The floor frame kit provides structure to install a floor above the base of your shed. It raises the floor of your shed by a couple of inches to keep your items off the ground. The most common flooring used is 5/8 inch exterior-grade plywood, and this can be purchased locally at any home center. The floor frame kit is made of hot-dipped galvanized steel and assembles in just minutes.
Liftgate - The liftgate service is offered by the shipper to provide delivery to your curbside. The carrier will lower the packaged skid off the delivery truck to the ground with a forklift-type device. From there, it is ready for unpacking and moving in individual pieces to the assembly site. If only one person if available to receive delivery or if removing pieces from the back of the truck seems too difficult, the liftgate is a recommended option.
Roof Strengthening Kit - The roof strengthening kit is recommended for customers in areas of the country that are prone to blizzard conditions. It can help your shed withstand heavy snow loads as it increases the roof strength by about 50 percent. The kit is made of electro-galvanized steel and installs in just minutes, even in existing buildings.
