Gryffin Tigertape™ is the original and only Australian designed and made barbed tape, generically referred to as razor wire. Our Tigertape™ products offer high security for all types of facilities: Short Barb for commercial applications, and Long Barb for correctional applications.

Tigertape™ Short Barb is made of continuous galvanized strip with four barbs cold clenched around a high tensile galvanized spring steel core wire. Options include Tigertape™ Single (a continuous helical coil), Tigertape™ Concertina (loops of single coil clipped together), and Tigertape™ Flat (individual clipped loops).

Tigertape™ Long Barb is manufactured from 301 austenitic stainless steel strip which is hardened to withstand the harshest climatic conditions. The strip is cold clenched around a high tensile galvanized spring steel core wire. Tigertape™ Long Barb is designed specifically for correctional facilities to present absolute maximum security.
