Fences topped by barb wire remains a common installation at power plants, police stations, correctional facilities, and other venues needing high security. For fences that use 2-1/2" posts and 1-5/8" rails, look no further than this steel 3 strand barb arm, available here at America's Fence Store. Fitting atop your post, with a circular hole to accommodate your fence rails, this arm has been fabricated with an angular build. This way, the barb wires project outward from the top of the fence, making it even more difficult for intruders and/or inmates to climb over. (As does the additional fence height provided by this fitting.) Three notches built into the arm secure the wires in place, and the arm's galvanized steel build provides superior rust resistance. This barb wire arm features black vinyl coating. If you have a chain link fence similarly coated this color, this arm is an ideal purchase.
How the part fits?A 2-1/2” x 1-5/8” 45-degree barb arm slides of over a 2-1/2” line post.
Where is it installed?A 2-1/2” x 1-5/8” 45-degree barb arm is installed on all of your 2-1/2” line post when your application requires barbwire. There will be a hole in the barb arm to slide your 1-5/8” top rail through. Typically, your 45-degree barb arm will be placed facing outside of your fence to provide more security.
How many do you need?You need one, 2-1/2” x 1-5/8” 45-degree barb arm per line post.
A 2-1/2” x 1-5/8” 45-degree barb arm is installed by sliding it over your 2-1/2” line post. Once you reach a terminal post you will need to tighten the barb wire by placing three additional 1-5/8” end bands on the extended terminal post.
