A chain-link fence allows for great visibility and is commonly used in garden areas, playgrounds, high screen golf courses, sports fields, railways and airports.

Chain wire’s flexibility makes it a great choice for cricket nets, tennis courts, and its springy texture can protect horses from injury in horse enclosures.

Internal chain wire partitions can be used to protect factory workers from machinery and to separate storage areas and storage cages.

              Barbed Wire Fence or Razor Wire Fence?

              For situations requiring extra security for your premises, many clients like to add barbed wire or razor wire to the top of their chain wire fence. We have installed Barbed wire fences and razor wire fences also known as razor tape in Sydney, Wollongong and the Central Coast for correctional facilities, electrical sub-stations, airports, along rail corridors and local and government facilities. Razor wire comes in a variety of barb lengths, wire diameters and loop sizes.

                Barbed Wire

                Barbed wire is a fencing wire made with sharp edges or points arranged at intervals of around 10 cm along the cable.

                Barbed wire normally comprises two wires twisted together to form a cable. The twisted double wire provides extra strength and permits expansion and contraction without breakage.

                The Barbs are cut diagonally to create sharper points and are often used to prevent animals or people from entering or leaving a place.
