Barbed wire

Barbed wire is a type of fencing wire constructed with sharp edges or points arranged at intervals along the strand(s). The design is intended to deter intrusion by humans or animals. It is typically made of high-tensile steel wire.

Galvanized barbed wire with double strand size

Made of 2 twisted line wires with 4 spikes, spikes spaced at a distance of 75 mm – 100 mm.

Horizontal wire barbed wire diameter 1.70 mm/ 2.5 mm.

Spikes wire diameter 2.0 mm/1.50 mm.

Packed in coils: 30-35 kg per coil


  • Sharp Barb Design: Barbed wire features regularly spaced sharp barbs or spikes along its length.
  • High-Tensile Strength: Built with high-tensile steel, providing strength and durability.
  • Corrosion Resistance: Many variants come with coatings or materials to resist corrosion, enhancing longevity.
  • Versatility: Suitable for various applications, including agricultural, security, and perimeter fencing.


  • Agricultural Fencing: Used to secure livestock and crops from intruders.
  • Perimeter Security: Commonly employed for securing boundaries of properties, industrial sites, and military installations.
