    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements, and sets out options, for zinc or zinc/aluminium-alloy coated steel wire and wire products for a broad range of fences, trellises, enclosures and the like. Terrestrial, aquatic (notably marine) and general uses are covered.In addition, the Standard provides for the optional application of organic coatings, such as paints and plastics, on the metallic coated wire and wire products.The following types of fencing product are included in the Standard:(a) Wires (single strand) for direct use and for conversion into fabricated products.(b) Barbed wire.(c) Wire netting.(d) Chain-link fencing fabric.(e) Prefabricated field fencing fabric.(f) Lightweight and mediumweight welded mesh fabric.(g) Heavyweight welded mesh fabric (panels).(h) Specialized products for aquatic enclosures.Only specialized, continuous or in-line processes, both hot-dip and electrolytic, are specified for application of the zinc or zinc/aluminium-alloy coating to single-strand wires and most of the fabricated products. The main exception is for heavyweight welded mesh fabric where the batch hot-dip process is commonly used to apply the metallic coating. This Standard does not apply to some products that are employed for specialized uses, even though the same, or very similar, requirements and specifications may be applicable. One such product, welded wire fabric for life safety applications, is covered by AS/NZS 4389.NOTES: 1 Advice and recommendations on information to be supplied by the purchaser at the time of enquiry and order are contained in the purchasing guidelines set out in Appendix A.2 Means for determining compliance with this Standard are given in Appendix B.3 Where the term ‘fence’ or ‘fencing’ is used in a non-specific context in this Standard, it implies any of the products and applications covered by this Standard.
