    Abstract

    This specification covers the requirements for insect screening and louver cloth made from vinyl-coated glass yarns. Specifically covered here are: commercial standard vinyl-coated glass yarn insect screening designed and woven primarily for installation in or on any dwelling, patio, screening enclosure, building, or structure for the purpose of keeping out flies, mosquitoes, and most insects; and vinyl-coated glass yarn louver cloth used extensively in soffit and louver vents to keep out most large insects, birds, and airborne litter, while at the same time providing for adequate ventilation and air circulation. Products are produced in two basic classes (Classes 1 and 2) based on nominal thickness. Products shall be suitably tested and conform accordingly to specified requirements in tems of appearance, mesh, roll length, mass per unit area, flame resistance, fabric stability, bursting strength, stiffness index, and color stability to accelerated weathering.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers the requirements for vinyl-coated glass yarn insect screening and louver cloth.

    1.2 This specification is intended to assist ultimate users by designating the sizes and types of these products that are generally available in the industry.

    1.3 This specification shows the terminology and requirements for:

    1.3.1 Commercial standard vinyl-coated glass yarn insect screening designed and woven primarily for installation in or on any dwelling, patio, screening enclosure, building, or structure for the purpose of keeping out flies, mosquitoes, and most insects.

    1.3.2 Vinyl-coated glass yarn louver cloth used extensively in soffit and louver vents to keep out most large insects, birds, and airborne litter, while at the same time providing for adequate ventilation and air circulation.

    1.4 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    1.5 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test methods portions, Sections 8-19, of this specification. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
