How big would you like your carrier?

Allow yourself to ask

Our fastener wires are available on steel carriers of different sizes holding up to 1200 pounds of wire

Each and every carrier shows a well-balanced and perfect layering of the wire for a smooth payoff operation.


Would you like a personalized packaging?

Allow yourself to ask

Intral makes every effort to provide the type of packaging that meets the exacting needs of your production team. Moving from standard to personalized configurations, Intral innovates and offers you more flexibility. We want to make things easier for you. We are creative!

For instance, to give the wire the adequate protection, wire onto carriers can be wrapped with a combination of stretched film and/or Kraft paper and/or cardboard. Furthermore, to protect wire from rubbing against steel during shipping, steel posts of carriers are covered with plastic. Finally, to insure full traceability of the wire up to the mother rod coil, a durable and customized ID tag is affixed to each carrier.

At Intral, you’ll be served from end to end
