1mm Galvanised Line Tension Wire
The 1mm galvanised tensioning line wire, available in a 500g coil, is purposefully designed to ensure the robustness of chicken fences. Its primary function is to maintain the fence’s tightness and combat the weight of the birds, ensuring the fence does not sag or snap. When selecting tensioning wire, it’s crucial to consider factors like the size of the enclosure and the chicken type to ensure the wire can bear the weight and pressure. The use of zinc in its coating safeguards the wire from rusting and corrosion, adding longevity to the fence’s lifespan. This tensioning wire seamlessly pairs with green coated chicken wire and other wire mesh fencing, enhancing the fence’s durability.
- Wire Type – Galvanised Steel

FAQs For This Product
Galvanised Steel or Green PVC Tension Wire?
Both galvanised steel and green PVC tension wire can be used for a chicken fence, and the choice between the two will depend on your personal preferences and specific needs.
Galvanised steel tension wire is a popular choice because it is strong, durable, and resistant to rust and corrosion. It’s also relatively affordable and widely available, making it a good option for those on a budget. Galvanised steel tension wire can be used on its own or with other fencing materials, and is generally easy to install.
Green PVC tension wire, on the other hand, is coated with a layer of PVC that provides additional protection against rust and corrosion, as well as a more attractive appearance. The green colour can help the fence blend in with its surroundings, which may be important if you’re looking to create a more natural or aesthetically pleasing enclosure. PVC-coated wire is also less likely to harm animals that may come into contact with it, as the coating provides a layer of insulation that helps to prevent shocks.
Is Galvanised Tension Wire High Tensile?
Galvanised tension wire can be high tensile, but not all galvanised tension wire is necessarily high tensile.
The term “high tensile” generally refers to wire that has been treated to increase its strength and elasticity, allowing it to be tensioned to a higher level without breaking or losing its shape. High tensile wire is typically used in applications where it needs to withstand high levels of stress, such as in fencing for large animals like horses or cattle.
Galvanising is a process that involves coating the wire with a layer of zinc to protect it against corrosion and rust. While this process can improve the durability and longevity of the wire, it doesn’t necessarily affect its tensile strength.
Does Galvanised Wire Rust?
Galvanised wire is designed to be more resistant to rust and corrosion than non-galvanised wire. The galvanising process involves coating the wire with a layer of zinc, which helps to protect it against the effects of moisture and oxidation that can lead to rust and corrosion.
However, over time and with exposure to the elements, galvanised wire can still rust or corrode, especially if it is subjected to harsh environmental conditions such as high humidity, salty air, or acidic soils. This is because the zinc coating on the wire can become damaged or worn away, leaving the underlying steel wire exposed to the elements.
The thickness of the galvanised coating can also impact how well the wire resists rust. Thicker coatings tend to offer better protection against corrosion, while thinner coatings may be more prone to rusting.
In general, a 1mm galvanised wire should be relatively resistant to rust and corrosion under normal conditions, but it’s still important to inspect the wire periodically for signs of damage or corrosion, especially if it is exposed to harsh environmental conditions. If you notice signs of rust or corrosion, it may be necessary to replace the wire to ensure the safety and integrity of your fence.
