About Wiretainers

Wiretainers expertise is in the design and construction of containers for the protection, separation and transport of component parts used in the manufacturing process.

The stacking stillages and pallets manufactured by Wiretainers provide easy access, safety, ease of identification and convenience for operators whilst maximizing floor space, cutting handling costs and making stocktaking simpler. Pallets vary in design, construction and finish to cover the range of sizes and weights of products manufactured by the many different industries we service.  We have made pipe stillages, carpet tile stillages, fabric roll stillages, stillages for the transport of component parts in the motor industry, food storage units, you name it, we've most likely already made it!

Over the years Wiretainers have also become experts in the containment and capture of animals. Since we started we have made possum traps and other animal traps including the Wiretainers cat trap, fox trap, dog trap, rat trap, bandicoot and wombat traps, along with pigeon and sparrow traps.  We have also been heavily involved in the design and construction of many cages and animal friendly enclosures for Melbourne Zoo, Healesville Sanctuary and other parks and Zoos around Australia.  These projects are unique and Wiretainers have built our reputation on the understanding of both the animals and the manufacturing process to be able to do this sort of work to an industry leading standard.

Wiretainers also manufacture an Australian standard fork lift safety cage, as well as standard stillages, trolleys and baskets.  With the purchase of BJ Turner in 2013 our range has expanded into baggage barrows and mobile platform ladders. www.bjturner.com.au

Wiretainers started in Kew in 1970 and moved to East Brunswick soon after, and now we are in Preston. Wiretainers started off making Wine and Bread Crates and then moved into larger materials handling equipment whilst still maintaining manufacture of smaller wire products.  We have a massive range of products, if it's made of steel, wire or mesh, we can help.  Give us a call 03 9480 1200 or sales@wiretainers.com.au.

Made to Order

  • Wiretainers can fabricate just about anything your require from steel and mesh. Much of what we do is stillages and stackable containers but we have the capability to make anything in steel and mesh that is in some volume. From a small basket to house camera equipment to semi trailer loads of stillages to hold carpet tiles we can, and probably have, made it all.

    Talk to Charles or Peter about your specialized requirements.

Did you know?

  • We were importing cheap chinese traps but have stopped as they were not up to our quality requirements and did not meet Australian standards for animal capture.

    You can buy a cheap imported alternative but if you want an easy to use, reliable and sturdy trap, buy the real thing, buy Australian.
