    Abstract

    This specification covers the design, fabrication, and installation practices for wood fences, including fences combined with wood and other materials, that are based on fundamental construction principles combined with long-standing traditional fence building skills. This specification also provides a systematic method of purchase, inspection with basis for rejection, and certification of manufactured wood fences by the fence industry. The generic classifications for wood fencing covered here are the rail fences (Type I), board fences (Type II), picket fences (Type III), and solid panel fences (Type IV).
