FAQs About Barbed Wires

1. Galvanised barbed wire

Galvanised barbed wires are made from high tensile wires. They are particularly effective at deterring intruders due to the sharp barbs found along the wires.

2. PVC-coated barbed wire

These wires are vinyl-coated to prevent rusting. Similarly, they have sharp spikes to prevent intruders from entering the premises.

3. Concertina barbed wire

Concertina barbed wires are coiled wires that are expanded to form a continuous barrier. They are highly durable and are often used to prevent prisoners from escaping as well as trespassers from entering.

  • Design

As compared to barbed wires, razor wires have sharper blades that can easily pierce through clothing or skin. Additionally, these blades are located at shorter intervals than the barbs found on barbed wires.

  • Cost

Barbed wires are typically less expensive as they are made from fewer raw materials and have a simpler manufacturing process as compared to razor wires.

The cost of a roll of barbed wire is dependent on a few factors such as its type and length. Contact our team regarding any enquiries or unique project requirements today!
