What are the applications of Barbed Wire?
Barbed wire is made with collection of two zinc coated steel strands warped together with spaced bards.
Barbed wire was used in 19th century as the American boundary line was moved towards west. Wooden rails and stones became inadequate and cost effective at that time so barbed wire came in to existence.
People construct barbed wires around their boundaries to keep their area safe and not to allow any unauthorized persons in to their lands or property.
Constructing a barbed wire around your land is not a difficult task. For every 10 feet distance a line post is placed and for 50 feet distance an end post is placed and using a hole digger holes are drilled for both line post and end post.
Crushed stoned is placed at the bottom of post line to provide more stability to the barbed wire. The barbed wire is passed through the each end post and staples are used to secure it.
The wire is passed through the end post until the end of the wire and after passing of each hole staples are made.
The above step is repeated until the whole area is fenced by the barbed wire.
