Products description

Barbed Wire

Barbed wire is made from high quality low carbon steel wire processed by automatic twisting machines. It is commonly used for separating grass edges, railways, roads, prisons and private areas.

The common twisted types of barbed wire are single twist barbed wire, double twist barbed wire and traditional twist barbed wire.

Barbed wire includes both wire and barbed wire. In general, the wire diameter of the wire is larger than that of barbed wire. The type of twist of barbed wire depends on the type of twist of the wire line and the barbed rope. And the wire line is sometimes single and sometimes double.

Single Barbed Wire

Mono Barbed Wire is a security fence with sharp edges and high strength wire.

Wire: Galvanised steel wire, low carbon steel wire, stainless steel wire, PVC covered iron wire in blue, green and yellow.


Barbed wire consists of wire gauge and barbed wire. Usually, the wire gauge is larger than the barbed wire. In the figures below, the former is the wire gauge and the latter is the barbed wire gauge.

Wire gauge: 180# x 180#, 200# x 200#, 220# x 200#, 220# x 220#, 250# x 220#, 260# x 220#, 270# x 220#, 280# x 220# , 300# x 200#, 200# x 200#.

Barb spacing: 1.96" - 5.90".

Barbed spacing: 3-6".


Single barbed wire has been widely used in military applications, prisons, guardhouses, government buildings and other national security installations. In recent years it has become apparent that barbed wire has become the most popular premium fence line, not only for military and national security applications but also for hut and social fencing and other private buildings.

Barbed Wire

Double Barbed Wire

Double barbed wire has two wires twisted together with wire barbs attached. The wires are usually attached to wooden fence posts using curved nails. This type is much safer than the high tension single barbed wire.

Materials: Hot-dip galvanised wire, electro-galvanised wire, PVC covered wire.


Barb spacing: 3" - 6".

Wire diameter: 1mm - 3.5mm.

Note: Larger wire gauge when galvanised or plastic coated.

The length or weight of each coil can be tailored to the customer's needs.


 High strength barbed wire is perfect for cattle fencing and top wire over traditional fencing. Also suitable for farm fencing, grass farms. Barbed wire with chain link fencing or welded fencing can be used for railways, airports and high protection areas.

Barbed wire is relatively cheap and moderately effective. The barbs can be painful if pushed over, thus stopping horses from pushing against the fence.
