Fittings and Installation
We offer a range of fittings to help make your installation as simple and effective as possible.
Brackets for Walls and Fences
Every scenario is slightly different and adapting the method of fitting is nearly always inevitable, however RazorwireUK has many years of experience in fitting and were always on hand to offer advice as well as the tools and equipment to carry out the installation.
However the main hurdle is to work out how to support the razor wire, normally on walls and fences you would fit elevated Galvanised steel brackets or posts to the wall or fence at intervals along the line you are fitting the razor wire to.
These brackets or supports will be holed and come with clips to enable attachment of the support wire and also larger diameter holes to fit the supports to the wall or fence.
On Concrete or Masonry Walls the brackets will need to be bolted to the surface using masonry or through bolts, on Fences then wood screws are generally the easiest option. If on a metal or palisade fence then drilling and tapping into the main fence support is the best method, the brackets or supports can then be bolted to the post.
Brackets: Available in straight 850mm x 4mm lengths or angled at 45 degrees these high quality zinc coated steel uprights are designed to suit either a vertical or over hanging installation. They can be used on wooden fences, brick walls or metal fences. Alternatively 2 x 45 degree brackets fitted back to back form a Y type vertical support. Used in conjunction with straining wire these brackets are simple, tough and effective.
Post Spacing and Tensioning
We recommend a support post is fitted at least every 3m on a wall or if on a fence then the nearest main fence post. This is to prevent the razor wire sagging between the supports. Additionally this can be minimised by tensioning the support wire however if to much tension is applied using tensioners then the support brackets can deform so additional heavy duty steel angle iron brackets will be needed at each end of the run and at specific intervals to allow the support wire to be tensioned.
When Installing on the ground specific care must be taken to prevent injury to livestock, pets etc, additionally as the Razorwire is no longer at a safe height additional measure may need to taken to alleviate the potential for innocent parties accidentally coming into contact with the Razorwire.
Fixing it to the ground is normally done by pegging it down at intervals, we supply specially designed pegs for this application.
High Quality Specification
One of the industry ways of maximising profitability is to disguise the specification, if the specification is not stated then you may not be getting value for money!
