Tool Cribs & Equipment Cages
Build tool cribs of any size and configuration with WireCrafters Style 840 Woven Wire Partition System. Unlike chain link fence or other alternatives, wire partitions are fully framed wire mesh panels that bolt together section by section. Most maintenance departments can install this modular partitioning product without the use of special tools or equipment; allowing for an easy installation of tool cribs and security cages.
Using our wire partition panels, you may construct tool crib walls and ceilings from the same modular sized panels. The partition panels may be stacked to your desired tool crib wall height, and the panels easily bolt to posts using standard hand tools. A full line of hinged, double hinged, and sliding doors are available for tool crib use, and the open but secure design allows free circulation of light, HVAC, and fire suppression systems throughout the secured areas.
Tool Cribs for Organization
WireCrafters wire partitions are ideal for the construction of tool cribs. With a designated, secure area to store tools and equipment, you no longer worry about who has what tool, or where tools have been misplaced. Many companies have found using wire partitions to organize their tool rooms has paid dividends in return. When a maintenance person needs a tool to work on equipment in the plant, they go to the tool crib and sign out the tool they need. Many tool cribs also have a service window so the plant personnel do not have to enter into the actual tool crib.

Tool Crib Construction

The panels are 4' and 5' high and are stacked one on top of the other to build a tool crib either 8', 10', or 12' high, and can have a variety of doors. We have both hinged and sliding doors in stock available for 48 hour shipping. Security cages can also be equipped with ceilings, and ceiling and wall panels can be interchanged.

Woven, Welded and Other Options
WireCrafters can manufacture tool cribs and security cages with woven wire panels, welded wire panels, expanded metal panels, polycarbonate panels, and sheet metal panels. Some tool cribs and security cages require a different mesh than the standard 2" x 1" woven rectangular mesh. Depending on the application, a see-through solid wall may be required for viewing stored equipment, so polycarbonate panels would be used. Some applications use sheet metal panels so no one can see what is inside the secured storage area. WireCrafters can substitute a variety of both woven or welded meshes to meet most any secure requirement.
