Product description

Gaucho barbed wire painted
© Bekaert

Gaucho® barbed wire is made of high tensile steel wire. This means we can use a smaller diameter wire while maintaining the same strength as conventional barbed wire.

Our reverse twist design reduces sagging, eliminates the need for pre-stretching, and allows for increased post spacing, all of which will save you time, money, and maintenance headaches. Plus, the Class 3 galvanized coating of Gaucho®  is proven to last two times longer than Class 1 coating.
