Comparing Alternatives to Razor Concertina Wire  

Standard Razor Wire 

Razor wire fencing material consists of wire strands with sharp razor blades spaced along its length. This design enhances the security capabilities of traditional barbed wire, creating a formidable deterrent against unauthorised access.

Ideal Industry applications for razor wire and razor mesh solutions include border control, high-security facilities, correctional facilities and construction sites.  


Barbed Wire 

Barbed wire is a less-advanced security fencing material that consists of twisted wire strands with sharp barbs spaced along its length. Initially designed for agricultural purposes, it is commonly used to create boundaries, mark property lines, and provide basic security. 

Ideal Industry applications for barbed wire include rural and residential properties and temporary fencing measures for events and construction sites.
