Barbed tape, often referred to as Razor Wire, is the modern version of barbed wire and designed to prevent intrusion along perimeter barriers. Razor Wire is fabricated from high tensile wire onto which a multitude of razor-sharp barbs are formed at close intervals. The barbs are designed to have a piercing and gripping action. The wire and strip are galvanised as standard to prevent corrosion.
