The Benefits and Drawbacks of Barbed Wire and Razor Wire

When it comes to security fences, barbed and razor wires are very popular. In fact, many people often get confused about which type of wire is best for their purposes. As a result, understanding the nuances and differences about razor and barbed wire can help you decide which wires are best for your fence — depending on your goals. Here are some helpful things to know when it comes to wires.

The Benefits and Drawbacks of Barbed Wire and Razor Wire

Understanding the differences between razor and barbed wire can help you decide which wires are best for your high security fence.

Understanding Razor Wire

Razor wire is typically made up of high tensile core wire. It also is made of a punched steel tape with very sharp barbs at extremely close intervals in a uniform fashion. The razor tape is traditionally quite coldly crimped and very tightly wound and then finally rolls for super easy transport and deployment. As a result, there is a multitude of styles and types of razor wire to choose from. However, these types of wires can be very difficult to cut that require hand devices to cut through properly.

Understanding Barbed Wire

When it comes to barbed wire, knowing what it’s made of can help you determine whether this is the type of wire fence you want to be used around your property. Barbed wires are wire fences that have pointed barbs at regular intervals that are all along the central wire itself. It also uses a fully automatic barbed wire that ultimately wraps the barbed wire around the main line which then ends up looking like a rope. Barbed wires also have three different types of twisting methods which is important to note when deciding what type of wire is best for your fencing needs.

Comparing The Materials

Razor or barbed: it’s the ultimate decision you may make. Protecting your property is important which is why knowing the differences between these two can make all the difference. Razor wire consists of two parts while barbed wire is just made of one type of material. Understanding what types of materials are best for your purposes can help you make the decision of what type of wire to use on your security fence.

Bottom Line

At the end of the day, what better than knowing all about the types of wires used on your fence. In fact, having the proper and necessary protection for your property is key to having peace of mind.
