StormSafe's™ unique, vertical spar design makes it inherently stable in rough, high wave conditions. More typical net pens are framed with horizontally floating tubes that are dangerously susceptible to water movement, twisting and bending. StormSafe™ has been tested and shown to move only a few inches vertically, even in waves two metres and higher. Because of this lack of movement, the life of the cage is significantly extended. The hinges, in particular, avoid considerable wear and tear. The vertical spars and overall stability also mean the unit experiences far less water resistance than typical cages. This makes StormSafe™ exceptionally easy to anchor. The entire structure is hot dipped galvanized steel to resist rust in both salt and freshwater conditions.
