|The KAMEI 450 is the ultimate ‘family box’ a particularly good shape for family camping trips and extremely well made – a real workhorse. It is entirely symmetrical so you can fit it to open either on the left or on the right. It also seems bigger than its stated 430 litres of capacity, thanks to its low profile reinforcing ribs and fittings, and a lid that's an optimum shape for load carrying. Certainly it's amazing how much you can stuff into it!
KAMEI is specialist box manufacturer, Quality Assured to ISO 9001, represented in over 40 countries, with numerous Best Buy awards over the years, including the last five Auto Express "Best Buy" awards. They are Original Equipment box suppliers to several major manufacturers, including Audi, Mercedes-Benz and VW. And KAMEI boxes have the longest guarantee of any manufacturer in the car rack systems sector - 6 years!
- Made from top quality 'DUROKAM', an ABS plastic developed by KAMEI to optimise weight, stability and impact resistance.
- Wind tunnel development as well as TÜV and GS (security) testing and approval.
- Stabilus gas struts for wide and easy opening and closing.
- Sliding box to bar fittings so there’s never a need to drill new holes if the distance between your roof bars is non standard.
- This box comes with fittings to accommodate roof bars up to 44mm wide.
- 6 year guarantee.
- Weight 19kg empty, maximum load 50kg, gross loading limit 69kg.
The toughest roof boxes - want proof?
Fifteen months ago three men in a 20 year old black taxi cab set off from London to attempt a new Guinness World Record for the longest taxi journey in history. The team set off from London on 17th February 2011, travelling via Europe, Russia, the Middle East, India, China and South East Asia and arrived in Sydney just before Christmas, after 50,000 eventful kilometres. The team then continued their epic trip and circumnavigate the world. They arrived back in London on May 11th 2012, having driven over 43,000 miles, through 50 countries and across 4 continents.
The Roof Box Company provided them with a push button locking KAMEI 450, because they are the strongest, most secure, most waterproof and most reliable boxes they have ever sold. The box has been opened and shut well over a thousand times and has had to cope with temperature extremes ranging from + 50°C to - 15° C.
