Barb Wire and Razor Wire Information
Barbed Wire – Also know as barb wire or bob-wire is a strand of galvanized or vinyl coated wire with intermittent sharp barbs protruding. Barbed wire can be used to make or secure many different types of fences, including livestock fencing and security fencing. It is commonly strung at the top of a chain link fence to add security by preventing anyone from climbing over the fence.
Razor Wire – A strand of helical barbed tape that has galvanized or stainless steel razor like blades protruding from it at regular intervals. It is typically used at maximum security facilities due to the fact that it is more difficult to navigate around than barbed wire.
