High tension steel galvanized wire is robust and is used to do fences that strength is highly required. They are effective against small wildlife and livestock especially sheep and goats due to their non-lethal nature where they do not wound livestock skin as they lack spikes. The most preferred wire the with a 12.5 gauge, 2.5 mm thick for domestic fences while the gauge 16 is for perimeter walls.
The high tension wire fence is similar to putting up a barbed wire only fence. Fencing poles in this type are usually deeper to support the tension applied to the wires to keep them tight.
