Squirrel® Fixings have created new markets and solved many design problems.
For Kevin Hoy our director and founder, inspiration was driven by necessity when he invented the Squirrel® Fixings. The well-established innovator and director of Cutting Edge was faced by the problem many have – how do I make a strong mechanical fixing into a solid surface. In late 2003 there were no reliable options. Tested to the ‘nth’ degree and after a series of prototypes his solution was borne in 2004. Patented world-wide and taken to market soon after, hundreds of thousands of people have benefited indirectly from the Squirrel® Fixings. His innovative design has been used throughout the world in projects including the award winning ‘Trifollium’ in Sydney, Australia, where the Squirrel® Fixing was a vital element allowing complex surfaces to be bolted together.
Over 1 million Squirrel® units have been sold for use in the built environment.
