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.
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.
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.
