Given the increasing costs of security and the damage caused by vandals to vulnerable sites, TigerTape is a cheap, cost effective perimeter defence system.
TigerTape has significant advantages over barbed wire and other similar products.
Its rigid self supporting coils present approximately 1,500 needle sharp (short barbed tape) barbs per metre and its high tensile steel core is extremely resistant to cutting.
Core reinforced barbed tapes have the advantage of being able to be fitted to walls, fences or eaves without the need for heavy duty straining posts, supports or catenary wires.
The method also allows for the barbed tape to follow any contour without having to follow straight lines or levels, necessary with strained wire sections. TigerTape flows freely around corners, up or down stepped fence sections, up vertical walls and under eaves. It's ability to follow contours without the need for straining, makes it ideal for fence and wall tops, ground installation and for preventing access to roofs.
Short sections needed for urgent security can be installed extremely fast and with little equipment, allowing repairs to be carried out without compromising perimeter security.
A completed installation has clean flowing lines with no breaks or protrusions through the line of barbed tape, making any damage or tampering obvious at a glance.
Single Coil Format
Single coil is barbed tape formed by a machine so as to form a continuous helical coil. The individual loops are strung out like a spring and tied at regular intervals to the fence or wall top with wire ties or clips. Ideal for use in fencing applications where barbed wire is not sufficient to deter intruders.
Flat Loop Format
Flat Loop is suitable for attaching directly to fence tops parallel to the fence line, where there can be no overhang to adjoining properties, or, where a neat flat appearance is desired.
Flat Loop is also ideal as a gate topping and can also be attached directly to the inside of fences to increase their cutting resistance. Larger diameter coils can be attached directly to the top of any type of existing fence to increase its height and security level.
Concertina is formed by clipping adjacent loops of single coil TigerTape to one another at regular points around the circumference. When extended, this forms a cylindrical pattern and limits the extension of the coil giving it integral strength and eliminating the need for supporting cables.
Gryffin | Security Fencing | Perimeter Security
Gryffin Pty. Ltd. was incorporated in 1986 and is owned and managed by Steve King and John Mythen. Steve and John have worked together in the security fencing field since 1971 and began manufacturing in 1985. In the 1970’s and early 80’s, Gryffin established a reputation as a specialist in fence erection, in technically difficult security and safety installations.
These installations called for elements of design and construction precision which were beyond the capability of most competitors. Eventually the partners interest in design led them to produce their first product Tigertape a stainless steel barbed tape which entered the marketplace in 1986.
Tigertape barbed tape was aimed firmly at the high security prison and correctional institution market and is now installed in 90% of the prisons in Australia.Since 1986 Gryffin have steadily added products to their range and now produce a full range of high security physical barriers for almost any application.
These include Palisade By Gryffin high security fencing, long and short barbed Tigertape.
Gryffin sees it’s mission as "to use Australian materials and design expertise to become the undisputed leader in the provision of high security barriers in Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and Asia."
In brief, the Palisade By Gryffin product is a modular barrier where individual components are hot dip galvanised prior to leaving the factory. This means that site construction does not require any further cutting or welding.
The system also features contour following design in that ground contours up to 15° may be followed whilst maintaining a constant height between the bottom of the fence pale and the ground.
