Tanglefoot Wire

Tanglefoot wire

The concept of a tanglefoot wire has roots going back to military defensive tactics, however, today tanglefoot wire is also capable of serving people, protecting their property from criminal attacks. An inconspicuous obstacle, known as Confusion, is one of the spiral obstacles, although outwardly it has nothing in common with a spiral. The tangle looks like a plexus of ring garlands made of steel spring wire with a nominal diameter of 0.4 millimeters. As noted above, tanglefoot wire is used to prevent unauthorized persons from accessing the protected area. Compared to safety barriers, Putanka has an additional advantage - the surprise factor. Such an obstacle is difficult to notice in the grass, especially in the dark.

A tanglefoot wire is installed in front of the protected perimeter on the ground. The upper rings of the Putanka are attached at some distance from the ground, and the lower ones directly to the ground. An indicator such as the height of the wire attachment depends on the specific model. When the wire is installed, it is an inconspicuous network of high-strength steel. Once caught in such a network, the chances of getting out of it are extremely small.

There are other ways to install this wire obstacle. In one of them, a subtle obstacle is attached only to the ground, which makes it more squat and even less noticeable. The putanka can also be mounted on any fence, wall or roof. Separately, it is worth noting the versatility and accessibility of this type of fence. In practice, it has been repeatedly proven that a subtle obstacle can serve as an effective deterrent barrier when used in any area.
