Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This guide establishes the material selection, system design, and layout requirements, aas well as installation procedures for chain link security fence systems intended to substantially increase the difficulty to penetrate, thereby, increasing intrusion delay time. Selection criteria are provided herein for the following materials and fencing components: chain link fabric; fence framework including line posts, terminal posts, and rails; barbed wires; barbed tape obstacles; tension wire; fittings; post ties, rail ties, and hog rings; swing gates; slide gates; and vehicle crash gates. Installation procedures for passive anti-ram systems are also provided herein.
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 guide provides the material and installation standards for selection in the design of a security chain link fence system. The proper material selection, system installation and layout can substantially increase the difficulty to penetrate; thereby, increasing the intrusion delay time.
1.2 This guide does not purport to address all of the physical protection security concerns. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish the appropriate design for the level of physical protection required and determine the applicability of regulatory requirements or limitations prior to use.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.4 It is recommended that Guide F1553 be followed for the format of this guide.
