The Bald Builders Put T-Rex To The Test

Shurtape BB Brute Force T Rex

The Bald Builders have proved the power of T-Rex Brute Force Tape®, with a unique Walk The Plank Challenge.

Brad and Sam - the popular building professionals and Fix Radio presenters - designed their own test to see if the super strong adhesive tape really is the strongest high performance duct tape on the market.

Scaffold Towers were erected and a tightrope joined from end to end T-Rex Brute Force Tape – one loop in thickness – before 10 concrete blocks, each weighing three stone, were placed on the ‘plank’. 

Sam, weighing in at 16.6 stone himself, then walked along the tightrope of tape and blocks four feet off the ground, putting the T-Rex Brute Force Tape under the pressure of 46 stone.

“I was more scared than when I did a skydive,” admitted Sam, who made it safely across the 10ft tightrope. “T-Rex Brute Force Tape only went and beat the Bald Builders!” 

Jason Burns, MD of Shurtape, says: “Brian Shaw, former holder of World’s Strongest Man title, put the product through a series of tests and found that T-Rex® Brute Force® can outperform all 19 other premium duct tapes of similar strength claims - by more than 50%. We were delighted to see it support the Builders in our most up to the minute UK strength test!”

“We’re always keen to work with Shurtape and this challenge was too good to resist,” says Brad of the Bald Builders. “What a product.” 

“We have a good record of working with builders across our entire adhesive tape portfolio,” says Jason. “It means we get professional insights from those working in the trade which is invaluable from a product development and marketing point of view, but it also means we have some great fun – case in point with this challenge!”
