Palmer construction is a leading organization that is emerged as a leading barbed wire fence manufacturer in Zimbabwe. It is a cheaper and quicker alternative to building a large and elaborate wooden or stone fencing structure which is formed simply by twisting hard pieces of wire together to form points at various places.These points are razor sharp and are ideal for establishing control over entry points to land or buildings.

One of the main reasons for having a barbed wire fence is containment. Fences can be used in this way in both a human and non-human capacity. Prisons commonly run barbed wire fencing known as razor wire along prison walls. If prisoners try to escape, they run the risk of injury because of the sharp points on the wiring. Barbed wire is also used to contain animals on farms. The wire stops livestock from running away and prevents farmers from losing large amounts of money. Some barbed wire fences can also have electricity run through them which makes them twice as effective.

Protection is a key reason to have a barbed wire fence. The fencing can be laid around a particular area as a way of keeping anything from entering. Examples of this could come in trying to keep animals away from your vegetable patch or prize flowers during warm nights in the summer. Farmers will use a barbed wire fence to protect valuable crops from roaming animals.
