Active Standard ASTM F3000 / F3000M | Developed by Subcommittee: F14.40
Book of Standards Volume: 01.06
This specification establishes the criteria for polymer privacy insert slats designed for insertion into chain link fabric after the chain link fence installation and privacy chain fabric having slats preinserted into chain link mesh during the chain link weaving process. It covers four types of polymer privacy insert slats: Type P-V consisting of polyethylene privacy insert slats hand inserted vertically into standard mesh chain link fabric after the fence installation; Type P-D consisting of polyethylene privacy insert slats hand woven diagonally into standard mesh chain link fabric after the fence installation; Type F-VDH consisting of modified fiberglass privacy insert slats hand woven, vertically, diagonally or horizontally into standard mesh chain link fabric after the fence installation; and Type PI-V consisting of privacy chain link fabric with vertical high density polyethylene privacy slats pre-inserted into the chain link mesh during the chain link weaving process. The standard addresses ordering information, privacy slat design configurations, weathering, chain link fence framework, tie wires and hog rings, and installation.
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 polymer privacy insert slats designed for insertion into chain link fabric after the chain link fence installation and privacy chain fabric having slats pre-inserted into chain link mesh during the chain link weaving process.
1.2 Type PI-V consists of privacy chain link fabric containing vertical high density polyethylene privacy slats pre-inserted into the chain link mesh during the chain link weaving process. Style 1a: Wider, 2 3/8 in. [60.3 mm] to 3 in. [76.2 mm] slats, pre-inserted into specially designed larger mesh. Style 1b: Type P-V friction fit slats pre-inserted into standard 2 in. [50 mm] chain link mesh.
1.3 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.
