The ultimate barbed security

ArmourBarb Razor Wire is the ultimate intruder deterrent, thanks to its superior design and galvanised steel composition. Effective as both a visual and physical deterrent, ArmourBarb will provide maximum protection against unlawful entry. 

New Zealand Made

ArmourBarb™ Razor Wire is manufactured in New Zealand from the highest quality galvanised steel.  
The barb profile is stamped from metal tape, then machine-formed into a groove into which high tensile wire is fed and pressed into place.  Finally the fully formed ArmourBarb™ Razor Wire is twisted to form rings.
