Spike & Raise is one of the leading installers of razorwire products. Spike & Raise has installed hundreds of kilometres of concertina and flat wrap razorwire in and around Cape Town.

Spike & Raise has installed razorwire in various ways over the years, even underground, to prevent criminals from digging a hole under an existing fence in order to intrude or escape.

Razorwire comes in various sizes:

  • Flat wrap razorwire– 500mm, 700mm & 900mm
  • Concertina razorwire has a tunnel effect and is manufactured in – 450mm, 730mm & 980mm diameter
  • Razor ripper (more industrial) - 500mm & 700mm width.

Razorwire can be installed using various different methods. Razorwire can be tied directly to an existing fence, half protruding above the fence and the other half against the fence. Razorwire can also be installed by means of erecting a bracket every 3m with two or three lines of horizontal strands or straining wire, depending on the size of razorwire you would like installed. Razorwire has to be installed in accordance with council laws, as height and public moving space have to be taken into consideration.

Concertina razorwire is mainly installed in industrial areas, prisons and other high-risk areas such as borders, police stations etc. Razorwire can also be installed on roads and in ceilings to prevent criminals from breaking into your home/office through the roof.

We also install razor ripper razorwire that is more suited in industrial areas.

The two most widely utilised types of security equipment worldwide are razorwire and barbed wire. They are highly affordable and practical effective barriers, whether used to prevent people and animals from crossing protective borders or mounted on walls or fences to prevent climbing.

Barbed wire/razorwire is a more modern security fencing option, manufactured with razor-sharp blades and high tensile wire, which makes it extremely difficult to cut, even with pliers.

Razorwire/barbed wire, or whatever you may know it as, is undeniably one of the most effective products on the market to keep intruders out of your property.
