Revision of F2781-15 Standard Practice for Testing Forced Entry, Ballistic and Low Impact Resistance of Security Fence Systems


ASTM 2781 has two sections (Table 1 and Section 8) which list the tools to be used for the cut thru testing portion of the specification. The description of the tools called out in some cases are vague and could be interpreted in a way to impact the effectiveness of the tool. There are also discrepancies between Table 1 and Section 8, these sections should be duplicates of each other. I am proposing a group is assembled to review the descriptions and update the specification to ensure the test tools are specified to the appropriate degree. This ensures better correlation of independent testing performed by manufacturers.
