Armed with this knowledge you can be assured that you are using an Australian made & designed fastener and the profits are staying here for further research and development.

Storm-Tite was designed by Gary Hollis and was first successfully tested by BHP in 1998 and the product has been available for nearly 14 years with a proven record of success the BHP report is available on our website to download. Test Report No: C576
Storm-Tite was then again tested through James Cook University Test Report TS 529 12th November 1998.

The success of this first test was well documented by JCU with comments on pages 3 & 4 quote:

“As a point of interest test 4 was continued beyond its proof load of 8.0kPa to a load of 11.4kPa before the test was terminated for safety reasons”.
