Concertina Wire

Price Range: $500.00 – $ 56

Razor wire is a kind of common security items which is popular around the world. It is also called concertina wire or barbed tape due to its shape. It consists of sharp blades and inner metal wires. It’s widely used in the factory, prison, bank, mineral areas, border or other places to stop the illegal penetration for security and protection.

Concertina wire or razor wire is a type of fencing that is razor-sharp and can be rolled up to fit into a small bag. Concertina wire is made from galvanized steel. It is a very durable material that can last for years. It is available in many different sizes and types.

Concertina wire was invented and commonly used by the military to discourage passage. It has found use in civilian law enforcement, in perimeters and barricades to deter illegal immigration, and in crowd control barriers.

And it is sometimes used to protect vehicles and equipment. Concertina wire is a wire obstacle made up of a row of steel blades or “fins” laid at intervals along a wire. It is used to create a continuous barrier that can restrict passage. Impede the progress of an advancing enemy, or be rapidly deployable by engineers.

In the past, barbed wire was the most common form of protection for military fortifications but it was quickly replaced by “razor wire”. Concertina wire was developed in Germany in the mid-19th century. And was named for its resemblance to the concertina accordion.

Concertina wire, also known as “coiled wire” or “concertina coil”. It is a type of barbed wire or razor wire that is folded in on itself to create a continuous fence or barrier. The concertina wire is then wrapped around itself, with the coils typically being linked by short lengths of pickets.

Concertina wire is commonly used to create barriers that are difficult to breach. The coils can either be electrically charged to deliver a shock to those who touch it. Or it may be flanked by a more traditional barbed wire fence to create a more severe abrasion on the intruder.

Here’s an overview of the different types of concertina wire:

  • Concertina wire fence
  • Concertina razor wire
  • Razor wire fence
  • Razor barbed wire
  • Military concertina wire

Security Barriers

Security barriers are certainly one of the best physical obstacles to have in place. The barrier is made from galvanized steel – typically. Having a stripe or gauze thickness of 0.55 mm to 1.5 mm. And is reinforced with 2.8mm by 3mm high carbon galvanized wire (depending on what’s needed).

These barriers have double-edged, unambiguous spines that are, again, spaced evenly all the way around. And work to deter would-be trespassers and intruders from where they shouldn’t be at any given moment.

Depending on your budget, you can choose whatever width works best for you between 450 mm, 500 mm, 600 mm, 730 mm and even 900 mm which will allow more “give” in case someone were to tamper with it not knowing that it’s capable of being stretched.  Now truly this is the ultimate security barrier – durable and strong enough not to break under pressure while perfectly functional at keeping an area safe & secure!

Concertina razor wire

Concertina razor wire is an intimidating barricade that is an efficient way to secure fencing without building a physical perimeter or covering it with netting. Concertina razor wire is made from ordinary razor wire that is coiled and connected into a cylindrical shape.

This configuration allows people to walk through it without getting caught. When people or animals try to push through the razor wire, but, the barrels will become tangled and difficult to move.

Concertina razor wire can be used to protect perimeters. But it’s particularly popular in prisons where it is used to deter violent behavior.

Concertina razor wire is extremely sharp and can cause deep cuts. Though it’s usually retrieved with pliers or a wire cutter before anyone gets harmed.

Razor wire fence

Razor wire is used as a security measure to prevent intruders from entering. It is generally a coiled wire with sharp edges that is placed around restricted areas like military installations or prisons.

The sharp wire makes it difficult for a person to climb over or cut through. It can also be used in concert with other barriers, such as barbed wire. Or in a line to prevent vehicular entry to a certain area.

Razor barbed wire

Razor barb wire is a type of wire that has had razor blades drilled into it. It is primarily used as a visual deterrent and only as an ultimum remedium against intruders.

The razor blades are very sharp. And when sliced against the skin will result in deep cuts that may need stitches.

They are primarily used to keep people from entering private property. And are a controversial means of keeping trespassers off land that is owned or leased.

Difference between barbed wire and razor wire

Razor wire has fine, sharp points that are good at preventing an intruder from getting through it. They’re usually packed closely together, which makes it harder to get over or through.

It’s commonly used for security in prisons and other places where protection is needed. So, barbed wire is thick and has points that aren’t sharp enough to pierce anything.

It’s used to keep animals from getting onto a property. It would be impossible for a person to get through barbed wire.

The big difference between the two is the size of the wire. Razor wire is thinner, so it’s harder to get through. Barbed wire is thick, so it doesn’t let anything in.

Military concertina wire

Concertina wire (or razor wire) is a type of fencing that is often used for military purposes. Concertina wire is made of a row of sharp, scalloped steel blades that interlock to form a fence or wall.

Concertina wire is different from barbed wire. Because the steel blades are exposed rather than hidden beneath another material.

Concertina wire is often used to surround military bases. Each strand of concertina wire is made of many wires that are twisted together to form a single, continuous strand. Concertina wire is also more effective than barbed wire and other fencing at keeping animals out of certain areas.

How long does concertina wire lasts

Concertina wire has a very long lifespan. It is coated with a thick layer of vinyl and plastic to protect against the elements. It can last for over 20 years before requiring a repair.

Concertina wire is also used for many types of home and commercial fences. As a way to keep intruders out without compromising on aesthetics of the surrounding area.

Strength of concertina wire

The strength of concertina really depends on the wire itself. Generally, concertina wire is made with 2 layers of steel. Which means it is much stronger than other types of wire. Some concertina is made with galvanized steel, which means it is extra strong.

Concertina wire can usually survive many years in harsh conditions without any damage or deterioration. It is a very durable wire. Although it’s difficult to determine which concertina wire is the strongest. You’ll want to make sure that it is at least a 2-layer wire if you want it to be extra strong.

The razor wire is classified into many tapes by its razor shape shape: BTO-22, CBT-65, BTO-10, BTO-12, BTO-30 and etc, They have different length, width and spacing.

Workshop show


We have our own factory and specialized razor wire workshop. Tens of machines are working all the day for the goods delivered to the whole world. The below is the introduction of our machines and raw materials in our workshop.

Punching machine.

It is used to cut the galvanized iron sheet to different razors. This is realized by kinds of mould.

Main processing machine.

This is used to combine the iron wires and finished galvanized razors together by pressing. This is the major step in production.

Pressing machine

After goods are finished, this machine will be used to press the razor wire coils to lower their volume. This step is applied for most razor wire types to make the freight cost-effective. But for some types, like the CBT-65, this will damage their structure to some extent and affect their normal function.

Raw material

There are two kinds of materials needed for this item: steel inner wire and galvanized iron sheet. The iron sheet will be cut to different shapes to meet different needs. And the steel wire will be used as the inner wire to make ti more strong and hard to break.
