  1. Building a Fox Proof Chicken Enclosure

    Building a Fox Proof Chicken Enclosure

    The challenge  ….

    To construct a fox proof chicken enclosure after the predator fox had enjoyed itself on our favourite chickens. The fox was cunning enough to work out how to get under a chain wire fence and through a hinge joint type dog fence.

    The Design ….

    We decided to use a PVC coated heavy duty wire netting that could be buried below ground to stop the fox from digging under the fence line ....

  3. Bird & Animal Enclosures - black PVC coated mesh

    Bird & Animal Enclosures - black PVC coated mesh

    Black PVC coated welded wire meshes are now being widely used for bird and animal enclosures because they give a superior view of the enclosure residents compared to plain galvanised mesh. Our regular customer - Wyong Sheds from Tuggerah NSW has been using our black PVC meshes for sometime now - the pics below are great examples of their work and how they have created excellent homes for their customers.

  4. Customer Feedback

    The following is an unedited email contact from a Tasmanian customer. We always appreciate feedback so we can continue to give our customers the best possible service.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your assistance today. The order confirmation has been received.

    Over the past few months I had exhausted all the local outlets including Bunnings, Roberts rural supplies and specialised fencing outlets in the north of Tassie, but none supplied a product that matched your quality. None of the local agencies were interested in sourcing a PVC coated product. We especially wanted a fine durable mesh that could be anchored at ground level and fine enough to deter or at least diminish the number of snakes (which are aplenty in this area : tiger and copperhead!).

    The provision of samples and your helpful manner reflects well on your organisation that others may try to imitate but will never emulate.

    Hopefully I can encourage friends and colleagues to consider your products.

    Kind regards,

  5. Brisbane snakes on the move!

    RESIDENTS in Brisbane are being warned to watch out for snakes on the move after last week’s deluge in the southeast.

    Snake Catcher with 1300 Catch It Julia Baker, known as the “Snake Shelia”, said Snakes often appeared in suburban areas after rain looking for warmth.

    “I’ve just pulled one out of a chicken coop. It was nestled among the eggs and wasn’t even interested in eating them,” she said.

    North Lakes mum Michelle Whittington said her son came across a snake that looked suspiciously like a brown snake on Friday morning while he was on his regular walk to school.

    But Ms Baker said the snake was a Keelback, which are often mistaken for one of the world’s deadliest snakes, the Eastern Brown.

    “They are often mistaken for Eastern Browns, but are totally harmless and quite reluctant to even bite,” she said.

    “The rain does bring out the frogs and toads as well, which in return will bring out the Keelbacks. By the way, Keelbacks are awesome to have around because they can and will eat Cane toads quite happily!”

    North Queensland Fish Farm

    We have been supplying our welded wire mesh products to a North Queensland aquaculture customer since August 2012. They had been using other mesh materials to house their juvenile barramundi from 20 gms through to 800gm in size - previous materials had fallen victim to various predators (the local rodent population in particular) resulting in repairs, loss of fish etc. TFS supplies a special 2 metre wide heavy hot dip galvanised welded wire mesh in 15m long rolls - this product is a custom produced item.

  8. Rising Cost of Wire Products

    Rising Cost of Wire Products

    There are a number of factors which are now impacting on the cost of most wire based products coming into Australia from China in particular – the ultimate effect is to increase the landed cost of the products when they arrive into our country.In the past 12 months, the landed cost of most of our products has increased by nearly 40%.

  9. Garden bed protection

    Garden bed protection

    Many of us are venturing enthusiastically into growing our own vegies and other garden plants. We invest wisely into modular garden beds and wait expectantly for our crops to bear their goodies only to find other unwanted thieves are helping themselves to our delights. Birds, rats, mice and other small animals also love our vegies so the challenge is to keep them out long enough for us to enjoy our crops.

  10. Debris Barriers

    Debris Barriers

    An issue facing many commercial building owners and managers is how stop prevent debris entering or falling down through glassed windows in the event that the glass shatters for whatever reason. This was the case at the Queensland Rail Museum in Ipswich, SW of Brisbane. The old and very attractive former railway workshops building has a large area of glass along the "saw tooth" ridges along the roof line. To prevent the prospect of any shattered glass falling down onto museum visitors a mesh barrier was created using welded wire mesh.
