The Red Head Brass Commitment
to Quality and Safety in Storz Couplings
Red Head’s high quality Storz couplings have no peer. Our Storz heads are forged as required by the DIN standards for firefighting applications…not cast. The tail pieces are made from extruded aluminum…not castings or plastics. Collars are made from high strength aluminum extrusions…not cast. Review our quality below, and then insist on the best: Storz couplings from Red Head Brass.
