Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers welded wire mesh fence fabric produced from steel wire or metallic-coated steel wire. The metallic-coated fabric may be polymer coated after fabrication. Welded wire mesh fence fabric is classified in accordance with coating as follows: Type 1; Type 2; Type 3; and Type 4. Tests shall be performed to determine the properties of the material in accordance with the following test methods: metallic coating weight; polymer coating thickness; polymer adhesion test; and weld shear strength of fabric.
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.
1.1 This specification covers welded wire mesh fence fabric produced from steel wire or metallic-coated steel wire. The metallic-coated fabric may be polymer coated after fabrication.
1.2 Welded wire mesh fence fabric is produced in four types, based on the kind of coating, as described in Section 4.
1.3 This specification is applicable to orders in either inch-pound units or SI units. Values stated in either inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as the standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values in the two systems are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independent of the other, without combining values in any way.
1.4 This specification references notes and footnotes, which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of this specification.
1.5 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 13, 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 proper to use.
