90.20(3)(a) (a) The wire is 14 1/2 gauge or heavier.
90.20(3)(b) (b) If the wire is 14 1/2 gauge, the mesh is not larger than 36 square inches.
90.20(3)(c) (c) If the wire is heavier than 14 1/2 gauge, the mesh is not larger than 48 square inches.
90.20(3)(d) (d) The posts are not more than 12 feet apart.
90.20(4) (4)High tensile fence. A high tensile fence satisfies the requirements of this subsection if all of the following apply:
90.20(4)(a) (a) The horizontal line wires are not less than 2.5 millimeters in size and are heavily galvanized high tensile wire.
90.20(4)(b) (b) The vertical stay wires are not less than 2.5 millimeters in size and are heavily galvanized medium tensile wire.
90.20(4)(c) (c) The knot wire is not less than 2.24 millimeters in size and is heavily galvanized mild steel.
90.20(4)(d) (d) The distance between vertical stay wires is not more than 6 inches.
90.20(4)(e) (e) The distance between horizontal line wires is not more than 4 inches in the bottom foot of the fence, is not more than 6.5 inches in the next 2 feet of the fence and is not more than 8.5 inches in the rest of the fence.
