About Us

About Thor

Since our inception in 2001 we have grown significantly and this is shown by the innovation in our latest range of cutting edge products.

Research, development and engineering is undertaken in Australia and New Zealand.

The past 7 years has seen a partnership in technology develop between Thor Technologies and a leading New Zealand University – Waikatolink.

Thor Technologies is 100% Australian and proud of it. Even today the hardwired range is still manufactured 100% locally.

Thor Technologies designs and produces products for our own ‘backyard’ so you can be assured that when we make a promise we stand by it.

Being local we intend to only ever guarantee to offer products that do what we say they do.

At the end of the day it is what’s inside the product that counts.

Some of you would be surprised at the small number of components that are found in competing brands. Competitors must think the bigger, heavier and glossier the product the more it will sell. If you are in the market for power protection based on this concept then you may need more help than we can give, so be careful.

The Surge Shield range brought power protection which had not changed much since the early 80’s, into the new millennium. Digital technology has evolved and is far more sensitive to power disturbances. This makes clean power an essential requirement where home theatre, computers or processor controlled systems are being used.

2006 saw the launch of a new generation of product – The SMART SERIES range, followed by the next release in this generation in February 2011, the Smart Protect 4 and Smart Rack Guard 11. A month later with the 20 Amp rack mount version of the very successful Smart Power Station.

2016 saw a new era in release of a patented technology co-developed with our university technology partner. The R & D team has worked hard and has merged its experience with an ear for what the maket was asking for.

2017 will complete the new modern look re-branding as well as launching two new models to the board range including a massive 4.8A USB fast charge circuit.

Early in 2019 a planned remote individual switched and Amp monitor, per outlet, rack product that will automatically email a service technician and advise of surge damage if an incident occurs. This product sits on a network and is accessed and controlled via its IP.

Intelligence in power protection brings a new meaning to our SmartBrain Technology.

Our products will provide the best solution for your equipment whether it is for your home or office.

Remember we are local so if you have a problem or there is not a product in our range available to you off the shelf come and talk to us as we may be able to build it for you – it is that simple!



Thor Technologies has enjoyed market acceptance because of its experienced and talented research and development team. Our R & D team includes a university based Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering specialising in surge protection and incorporating PHD & Doctorate students assuring the cutting edge of innovation is razor sharp.

Success has not been by chance but due to careful planning and market research coupled with the strong desire to lead with cutting edge technology.

We believe in continuing to improve and strive for new innovative products. This is an ongoing process and is often borne from valuable feedback received from our customers.

We are happy to offer a “no question asked” power board warranty as we value the information we can obtain from products that have been active in the field. The data obtained from these products help us to keep improving our range.

Our research and development is done in Australia and New Zealand. Keeping to a true ANZAC tradition.


The Thor SmartBrain not only protects from spikes/surges, it also filters and cleans electrical frequency noise to give you unbeatable sound and video quality. Enjoy a truer AV experience with better picture quality and purer sound. Can also improve computers gaming speeds and fix internet dropouts.



SmartBrain has a premium filter technology called Dynamic Active Tracking. This unique filter has the best chance of “cleaning” electrical noise because it shields around 40% more frequencies when compared to other filters. It is an Active filter and can “clean” unwanted frequencies on both the upward curve and the downward curve of a sine wave (power). Most other  filters only work at the crest of the wave and therefore miss a huge section of unwanted frequencies that can generate noise on sensitive electronic devices.



George is based on our west coast in Perth, where the R & D and Administration offices are located.

He has over 25 years experience in the electrical and power protection industry. He has worked in the industry from the ground up starting as a sales agent and progressing through to the National Sales Manager’s role. He is currently the Managing Director of Thor Technologies.

George’s extensive experience includes product knowledge, research & development, manufacturing, production, customer service, sales training, marketing and management.

George oversees the day to day running of the company.

Thor Technologies Pty Ltd is a strong Australian Company which is 100% Australian owned.
