    Our black PVC coated wedled wire mesh roll product is frequently used in pool fencing applications. Various states use the same national standard although interpretation of the rules can vary from state to state. The advantange of the black PVC is that is tends to "disappear" into the background and is not intrusive visually. Its is a very cost effective means of fencing off larger fence areas.

  3. North Queensland Fish Farm

    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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Building a snake proof fence

    Building a snake proof fence

    12th December 2012 By Mel & Steve - Adelaide

    A customer north of Adelaide has used our 6.5mm galvanised mesh to snake proof their dog enclosure to protect their prize Bull Mastiffs from venomous snakes. Their existing fencing mesh kept the dogs in but allowed snakes and other vermin to move into the dog area. The 1200mm wide 6.5mm mesh was placed 900mm up the fence height and then 300mm flat on the ground as shown in these pictures. It works superbly and the proud mastiff owner reports that since erecting the new snake barrier, no snakes have made their way into the dog run but they are still seeing snakes on the outside.

  7. Cat Enclosures

    Cat Enclosures

    An increasing number of local councils are requiring cat owners to constrain their pets to the owners property boundaries in a growing recognition that cats take a heavy toll on native wildlife - birds, small animals and reptiles. Cats are obviously a natural hunter so they are just following their instincts. Erecting a suitable enclosure presents its own issues of what materials to use to get the strength and durability of the enclosure without creating an eyesore or impeding natural property views. Welded wire meshes in a black PVC finish answers all these requirements as seen in this example ...
