    ASTM F969

    Significance and Use

    The intended use of this practice is for 10- or 12-ft (3050 or 3660 mm) high chain-link fencing as complete enclosures around single or multiple tennis courts, or as backstops at either end of tennis courts.

    This practice is not intended for applications where fencing higher than 12 ft (3660 mm) is desired for a special application.

    Caution Regarding Windscreens If wind screens are to be installed at the time of fence erection or at a later time, it is advisable to use stronger framework and parts and closer spacing of posts or back bracing depending upon the type of screening material to be used, area of fence to be covered, and local wind conditions. The Chain Link Fence Manufacturers Institutes (CLFMI), Guide WLG 2445, provides the designer with the process to select the post size and post spacing.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers fencing around tennis courts, built from various types of chain-link fabric and framework materials, and installation practices for same.

    1.2 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.

    1.3 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.
