Materials: hot-dipped galvanized wire, electro galvanized wire, PVC coated wire.

Specifications:

  • Barb spacing: 3" - 6".
  • Wire diameter: 1mm - 3.5mm.
  • Note: After galvanizing or plastic coating, the wire gauge is larger.
  • The length or weight per coil can be as customer need.

Applications: with high tensile, barbed wire is the perfect selection for cattle fencing and for the top wire above a traditional stock fence. It is also suitable for farm fencing, grassland farm. Barbed wire with chain link fence or welded fence can be found in use in railway, airport, high protection areas.
