Safely Handle Barbed Wire with Work Gloves that feature PunkBan

A fence is a structure that encloses an area, typically outdoors, and is usually constructed from posts that are connected by boards, wire, rails, netting or wire. They are typically used to determine property lines, to protect livestock and certain facilities are often required to be fenced in, for industrial safety and security reasons.

Constructed in 1868 and originally used to keep livestock from roaming around the Midwest, barbed, or barb wire is popularly used today as an inexpensive yet highly effective fencing tool to keep things out, or keep things in. 

Known as devils rope, it’s a type of steel wire constructed with sharp edges or points arranged at intervals along the strands. It is used for division, containment, protection and as a deterrent in areas such as :

  • Facilities with open high-voltage equipment     
  • Fixed machinery with dangerous mobile parts
  • Explosive factories
  • Most industrial plants
  • Airfields and airports
  • Military areas
  • Prisons
  • Construction sites
  • Zoos and wildlife parks
  • Pastures

Barbed wire is often used atop walls surrounding secured property and is a major feature of the fortifications in trench warfare. A person or animal trying to pass through or over barbed wire will suffer inevitable severe discomfort and possibly injury. If you are planning on installing a barb wire fence, then a pair of good quality industrial work gloves is a must!

*Please note: there is no European standard for needle resistance. Current Industry practice is to utilize the American Standard ASTM F2878 as a guide, and to allow comparisons between different products. These products are not needle proof. Your own risk assessment therefore needs to be undertaken to decide the suitability of this product.
