new cage building help

we started the cage build today it is gonna be huge 6 ft high 5 feet wide and 5 shelves 2 ft deep. (sorry for American measurements but I am horrible at the conversions)
I am planning on separating the cage shelves through the middle to make it suitable for 2 pairs on each side. I have another question now, will a simple wire separater be okay or will they fight through it?
This is a post from my original thread but I thought a new thread might be needed

A simple divider should be fine but like I said in the other thread, make it temporary so you can remove it once they're all bonded .

I have 1/4" window channels in the middle and can slide 1/4" clear plastic in and out when I need to. separating or cleaning 1/2 at a time. My cage is 32" deep 42" tall and 62" wide. Degutopia says it's big enough for 11 Degu, but more than 7 in same cage won't get along.
