The Red Head Brass Commitment to Quality and Safety in Storz Adapters

Quality and durability are constructed into every Storz adapter from Red Head Brass.

All Storz heads are forged 6061-T6 aluminum to SAE-AMS-QQ-A-367 and ASTM B247. Complies with DIN standards which require that Storz heads must be forged when used in firefighting applications.

All aluminum components are Hardcoat Anodized per MIL-A-8625 Type III, Class 1. Hardcoat provides a durable surface that resists corrosion, abrasion, reduces electrolysis and prevents excessive wear on the threads.

Plain anodize, painted or powder coated finishes are never used.
