||Gate Mechanisms Task Group Welcomes Input
A new task group, Self-Closing, Self-Latching Gate Mechanisms,
has formed in Subcommittee F14.10 on Specific Applications, part
of Committee F14 on Fences. The group welcomes volunteers to create
standards that promote optimum manufacture, design, testing, and
performance of these devices.
The task group will address self-closing, self-latching gate
hardware as they relate to the proposed drafts for play area fencing,
ball-field fencing, and ASTM F 1908, Standard Guide for Fences
for Residential Outdoor Swimming Pools, Hot Tubs, and Spas, says
Jane Miner, regional sales manager, D&D Technologies, Tyrone, Ga., and chair
of the new task group. Please contact her to participate, or for
