TOWNSVILLE-based company Beehive Vinyl Products has provided an extensive range of custom-made vinyl shade cloth, canvas and industrial textile manufactured goods since establishing in 1978.
Beehive’s products and services cover a range of sectors – from heavy industry, transport, agriculture, mining and local infrastructure to promotional defence and specialised industrial applications.
The Australian-owned and -operated company is well-known for its patented Beehive tool bags –the preferred choice of many leading national and international companies and individual trade workers and technicians.
It has a strong Australian client base as well as many global clients at locations such as South Africa, Mongolia, Africa, the UK, Canada, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and New Zealand.
Beehive has designed and manufactured tool bags for more than 18 years, using high quality Australian-made vinyl materials to ensure they are safe, comfortable and built to last. By manufacturing its products locally, Beehive ensures its products maintain a superior quality.
All Beehive tool bags consist of a high density polyethylene base; UV and chemical resistant thread; ergonomic anti-slip cushioned shoulder pad; UV-resistant seatbelt webbing, and quality workmanship – to ensure that tools are safely contained and protected.
The heavy duty vinyl is a rip-stop reinforced material tested to AS2001.2.3 tensile strength standard, BS3424.5 Tongue tear standard and AS1441.6 flex cracking standard.
The vinyl also has fire retardant properties that are tested to parts two and three of AS1530 standard, to meet Australian building codes for fire retardant materials.
Clients’ safety is paramount for the company, which prides itself on the manufacturing of quality tool bags which won’t rip or tear on site – this has been known to happen with inferior imported products, resulting in tools falling from great heights and potential injury.
Beehive’s large range caters to specific trades and tool requirements, with add-ons offered.
Tool bags can also be custom-made to suit specific requirements and tools – whether it is a slight alteration to an existing design, different colours or something completely new.
The size, depth and width of pockets can be adjusted, and corporate logos, names, or promotional printing can also be added in a range of colours.
The company can also fabricate detonator bags, tool rolls and pouches, document bags, crib bags, esky bags and portable hard drive bags, IBC pod covers and oil drum covers. Other custom-made items are available on request.
