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 we are always on hand to offer advice, as well as the necessary tools and equipment to carry out the installation.
The main hurdle is to work out how to support the razor wire. Normally you would fit elevated Galvanised steel brackets or supports to the wall or fence at intervals, along the line you are fitting the razor wire to.
Our brackets and supports are pre-holed and come with clips to enable attachment of the straining wire.
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 lengths or angled at 45 degrees these high-quality zinc-coated steel uprights are designed to suit either a vertical or overhanging 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
The number of support posts needed for installation will vary. However, we recommend a support post fitted at intervals of 3m when installing on a wall and the nearest fence post when installing on a fence of any kind. By using a sufficient amount of support posts, you will stop the Razorwire from sagging. This can also be minimised by tensioning the support wire, however, if too much tension is applied 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 extra measures 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 way in which the industry maximise profits is disguising the Razorwire specification. If the specification is not clearly stated, you may not be getting value for money!
