A2 Owner's Manual Before beginning construction, check local building codes regarding footings, location and other requirements. Study and understand this owner's manual. Important information and helpful tips will make your construction easier and more enjoyable. Instructions are supplied in this manual and contain all appropriate information for your building model. Review all instructions before you begin, and during assembly, follow the step sequence carefully for successful results. Assembly Instructions: Flooring and Anchoring: Your storage building must be anchored to prevent wind damage. A base is necessary to construct a square and level building. Anchoring and base materials are not included with your building. We recommend the combined use of an Arrow Floor Frame Kit and an Arrow Anchoring Kit as an effective method of securing your building to the ground (Available by mail order or at your local dealer) or you may construct a base and anchoring system of your choice. Your assembly instructions provide information on a few methods commonly used to secure and level a storage building. Parts and Parts List: Check to be sure that you have all the necessary parts for your building. •All part numbers can be found on the parts. All of these numbers (before the -) must agree with the numbers on the parts list. The parts list is located on page 12. •If you find that a part is missing, include the model number of your building and contact: Arrow Group Industries, Inc. Customer Service Department 1101 North 4th Street Breese, Illinois 62230 1-800-851-1085 •Separate contents of the carton by the part number while reviewing parts list. The first few steps show how to join related parts to make larger sub assemblies which will be used later. •Familiarize yourself with the hardware and fasteners for easier use during construction. These are packaged within the carton. Note that extra fasteners have been supplied for your convenience. 2 PLAN AHEAD.... A3 Watch the Weather: Be sure the day you select to install your building is dry and calm. Do not attempt to assemble your building on a windy day. Be careful on wet or muddy ground. Whenever possible, two or more people should work together to assemble your building. One person can position parts or panels while the other is able to handle the fasteners and the tools. Teamwork: These are some basic tools and materials you will need for the construction of your building. Decide which method of anchoring and the type of base you wish to use in order to form a complete list of the materials you will need. Tools and Materials: Required • Eye Goggles • No. 2 Phillips Screwdriver (With Hardened Magnetic Tip) Note: A power screwdriver or variable speed drill with Phillips-tip attachment can speed assembly by as much as 40%. Required • Work Gloves • Step Ladder • Utility Knife / Scissors • Pliers • Carpenter's Level • Tape Measure Optional Time-Savers • Wrench / Nut Driver • Electric / Cordless Drill • Square • String (for squaring frame) Base Preparation • Hammer and Nails • Spade or Shovel • Hand Saw / Power Saw • Lumber and/or Concrete Selecting and Preparing Your Site: Before assembly, you will want to decide on a location for your building. The best location is a level area with good drainage. •Allow enough working space for ease of moving parts into position during assembly. Be sure there will be enough space at entrance for doors to open fully and enough space around the building to be able to fasten the panel screws from the outside. •Before you begin the first steps in assembling your parts, a base should be constructed and an anchoring system should be ready to use. 3 SAFETY FIRST.... A4 Safety precautions are important to follow throughout the construction of your building. •Care must be taken when handling various pieces of your building since some contain sharp edges. Please wear work gloves, eye protection and long sleeves when assembling or performing any maintenance on your building. •Practice caution with the tools being used in the assembly of this building. Be familiar with the operation of all power tools. safety edge sharp edge sharp edge safety edge •Keep children and pets away from worksite to avoid distractions and any accidents which may occur. •Do not attempt to assemble the building if parts are missing because any building left partially assembled may be seriously damaged by light winds. Call 1-800-851-1085 •Never concentrate your total weight on the roof of the building. When using a step ladder make sure that it is fully open and on even ground before climbing on it. •Do not attempt to assemble the building on a windy day, because the large panels acting as a "sail", can be whipped about by the wind making construction difficult and unsafe. 4 CARE & MAINTENANCE.... A5 Web For long lasting finish, periodically clean and wax the exterior surface. Touchup scratches as soon as you notice them on your unit. Immediately clean the area with a wire brush; wash it and apply touch-up paint per manufacturer's recommendation. Finish: Roof: Keep roof clear of leaves and snow with long handled, soft-bristled broom. Heavy amounts of snow on roof can damage building making it unsafe to enter. In snow country, Roof Strengthening Kits are available for most Arrow Buildings for added protection against heavy snow accumulation. Doors: Always keep the door tracks clear of dirt and other debris that prevent them from sliding easily. Lubricate door track annually with furniture polish or silicone spray. Keep doors closed and locked to prevent wind damage. Fasteners: Use all washers supplied to protect against weather infiltration and to protect the metal from being scratched by screws. Regularly check your building for loose screws, bolts, nuts, etc. and retighten them as necessary. A plastic sheet (vapor barrier) placed under the entire floor area with good ventilation will reduce condensation. Moisture: Other Tips.... • Wash off inked part numbers on coated panels with soap and water. • Silicone caulking may be used for watertight seals throughout the building. Do not store swimming pool chemicals in your building. Combustibles and corrosives must be stored in air tight approved containers. Keep this Owner's Manual and Assembly Instructions for future reference. 5 ACCESSORIES....

Problem areas include screw holes, unfinished edges, or where scrapes and nicks occur in the protective coating through normal assembly, handling and use. Identifying these natural rusting problem areas and taking some simple rust protection precautions can help to stop rust from developing, or stop it quickly as soon as it appears. 1. Avoid nicking or scraping the coating surface, inside and out. 2. Use all the washers supplied. In addition to protecting against weather infiltration, the washers protect the metal from being scraped by the screws. 3. Keep roof, base perimeter and door tracks free of debris and leaves which may accumulate and retain moisture. These can do double damage since they give off acid as they decay. 4. Touch up scrapes or nicks and any area of visible rust as soon as possible. Make sure the surface is free of moisture, oils, dirt or grime and then apply an even film of high quality touch-up paint.
