I do this for a living. We use straight wire for one reason the ceiling lays flat. If you take wire off a coil it will at as a spring and ceiling will not lay flat. Hang wire and put the wire in a electric drill and spin the drill it will twist the wire and make it straight. Number 12 is good for long drops but if your doing a ceiling in a basement use thin wire like plumber wire (we call it tie wire) ours come in straight 2 foot lengths. If using thin wire use 3 pieces. Have a hanger every four feet. When using lag screws put them as high as possible on joist near top not on bottom

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Rolled Ceiling Wire is Difficult to Use
Buying ceiling wire in a coil such as this is comparable to hanging a ceiling on springs. You'd be much better off buying 12' or 20' lengths in bundles rather than trying to straighten this coiled mess.

This wire helped in a pinch, but could not be used on a everyday basis. The wire being rolled up makes it hard to tie ceiling up properly. But it helped us out when could not get straight wires on a weekend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BR549 Great reinforcement wire for chain link fence support and half the price.
Easy to thread through the chain link fence weave for upper fence support and very workable to attach new fence to existing fence.

This suspension wire is plenty strong (fewer ties needed), plenty stiff (able to position the grid precisely, and have it stay), and plenty workable (easy to cut and bend, no burrs). A good material for commercial drop ceilings.
