Zaun’s range of high security and perimeter fencing systems can be designed to incorporate concertina razor wire toppings on the top of the fence to enhance the perimeter’s security further. Concertina wire provides additional physical security to the fence line and is also a psychological and visual deterrent for any potential thieves, trespassers, or vandals. In addition, the multiple blades on the razor wire are also designed to prevent anyone from attempting to scale the fence.
Due to Zaun’s in-house manufacturing capabilities, we can provide several options to the top of the fence post to install barbed wire. This could be with Y brackets or T brackets, providing bespoke options, depending on the site requirements. Straining posts are required to a maximum of every 50m and for any change in direction.
Concertina wire toppings are typically used to top fencing required to protect critical national importance, borders, utility sites, and other key assets and is typically seen as a cost-effective solution to further enhance the perimeter’s security.
Manufactured using galvanised steel as standard (stainless steel is also available upon request), it acts as a highly durable line of defence, suitable for some of the harshest weather conditions. Supplied in rolls of roughly 200m.
Barbed Tape Concertina Razor Wire is available in a variety of blade types:
- Medium profile blades
- “T” spec blades
- Short profile blades
- Harpoon profile blades
All have their own characteristics dependent upon the specifications of the site you are trying to protect.
Zaun concertina razor wire barbed tape is ideal for using our range of high-security perimeter fencing and gates.
Concertina Razor Wire Toppings Legislation
Warning signs must be installed along the fence line as part of the Occupier’s Liability Act of 1984 and Highways Act 1980, warning the general public of the dangerous razor wire above. These 250mm x 90mm signs can be supplied by Zaun, in addition to the fencing and barbed wire. These are NOT sold separately.
It is recommended that when handling razor wire, gauntlet gloves are worn to protect the installer from the sharp edges of the wire.
Maintenance of Concertina Razor Wire Toppings
Minimal maintenance is required once installed; razor wire usually stays effective for as long as needed. However, for optimum security, a regular check of the perimeter for any trapped debris, litter or bags within the wires is required to ensure the wire maintains its effectiveness. Any damaged wires can be quickly and easily repaired without removing the entire structure.
