    concertina wire = barbed wire?

    Topic

    concertina wire = barbed wire?

    Comment
    a friend of mine who is a translator and serves in the military used the term "concertina wire" when talking to me last night about how a compound might be secured. specifically, we were talking about an electrical fence with 'concertina wire' on top. I had assumed she meant 'barbed wire'. that is the term I would have used and which is also what LEO offers for "stacheldraht". there is nothing on 'concertina wire', however, so I wanted to ask you native speakers out there - do concertina wire and barbwire refer to the same thing or were my friend and I talking about different things? or is concertina wire simply the more 'military' term?

    thanks in advance!

    googeln hilft! Es scheint dieser speziell gerollte Stacheldraht zu sein.

    Nato-(Stachel)draht IMHO

    http://s-draht.de/ Hier gibt es Concertina-Draht, Klingendraht, S-Draht, Sicherheitsdraht, NAT>O-Draht und Spiralklingendraht für - falls mich meine trüben alten Augen nicht täuschen - ein und dasselbe Modell

    Schön, dass es wenn schon keinen Wöbu-Eintrag, dann aber doch diesen Foren-Eintrag dazu gibt. Siehe auch : http://images.google.de/images?um=1&hl=de&lr=...
