|ICS Code (External structures):||91.090|
This part of BS 1722 specifies requirements for the construction and installation of general pattern and dropper pattern strained wire fences and rectangular wire mesh fences, including mild steel or high tensile woven wire fencing, welded mesh fencing, hexagonal wire netting fences of the general pattern, and spring steel wire pattern fences where the mesh is fixed onto spring steel line wires.
This standard includes requirements for protective treatments. However, maintenance requirements of the fence after installation are outside the scope of this standard.
