Description

 

Barb wire, also called barbed wire or just barbed tape, is a type of fencing wire constructed with sharp edges or points arranged at intervals along the strand(s).

Early versions of the barbed wire consisted of single wires with sharpened points placed in contact with each other and held apart by thin stays. However, nowadays, the double twisted one is more popular in the global market as a common security item. It can be found in many places now because it has become widely used as a means of protection and warning against intruders.

As an important part of defense tools, barb wire can be used to protect military facilities like airbases, artillery depots, and command posts or to prevent enemy soldiers from infiltrating your country’s borders.

Therefore, as you see this is really dangerous stuff. We should carefully avoid it and never try to cross it on our own.

Barbed wire is made with strand upon strands of metal that are twisted together to form a cylinder. The ends of the strands protrude outwards and have many sharp points. The points are turned inwards, which makes it hard for people to get through the fence without hurting themselves with the barbs.

Compared with the concertina wire, it’s more economical and affordable.  And it’s always used on farms for simple protection and enclosure.

History

Barbed wire was first invented in 18743 by a person named Joseph Glidden. His invention revolutionized the way people lived and farmed in rural communities. Today, barbed wire is used all over the world for many of the same purposes.

During the civil war, this type of barbed wire was adopted by soldiers serving in the military for security purposes at prisoner camps.It wasn’t until the late 1800s that Joseph Glidden invented barbed wire that was made from steel, allowing it to be produced on a much larger scale. The history of barbed wire is very significant because it changed the way people lived and farmed all across America. Today, barbed wire is still used in the same way to keep people and animals off of other people’s property.

Applications of barbed wire

 

Barbed wire is used mainly as a means of controlling livestock. Farmers would attach it to wooden posts and create pens with it.

It was also used in prisons to prevent inmates from escaping. There have even been claims that barbed wire has been used as a form of torture.

The barbed fence had many uses, but it also had its share of controversy. Many people protested against it because they thought that it was inhumane to keep cattle enclosed with the barbed wire fence.

It is still used as a fence for livestock to this day. It is also used for certain types of construction, such as elevating the ground.

 

Features of barbed wire

 

  • High economic efficiency compared with the concertina wire
  • Easy to install and use.
  • Low cost of maintenance.
  • Is directly connected with the posts without using nails.

 

FAQS

 

What are the costs?

 

The costs depend on how long you need your barbed wire to be. Don’t forget that every roll is 15.5 feet, so if you want 100 feet of fencing material it will take 6 rolls, which adds up to about $200 plus any accessories you might need.

You might be able to find used barbed wire for cheap at swap meets, but the quality cannot be determined without careful inspection.

What tools are needed?

 

You will need heavy pliers or wire cutters for removing any old fencing you might have. If you plan on driving posts into hard surfaces, you will also need a post-drive. You can rent these at hardware stores or borrow them from friends.

What are the extra costs?

 

If you have to put posts into hard surfaces, for example, concrete, you will need special tools. A standard workout is buying a good-quality sledgehammer and using it with a wedge made of steel to create your own post drive.
