PART 2 – MATERIALS

2.01 MANUFACTURER
The commercial ornamental steel fence system shall conform to FenceTrac standard system with (specify filler materials for privacy function – i.e. Wood, Aluminum, Manufactured, Vinyl, etc.) style filler materials supplied by (specify manufacturer or distributor of specific filler option).   FenceTrac is manufactured in Tulsa, OK.  Contact: 918-794-8722; [email protected]

 

2.02 MATERIAL
A.
Steel material for fence framework and posts, when galvanized prior to forming, shall conform to the requirements of ASTM A924/A924M, with a minimum yield strength of 45,000 psi (310 MPa). The steel shall be hot-dip galvanized to meet the requirements of ASTM A653/A653M with a minimum zinc coating weight of 0.60 oz/ft2(276 g/m2), Coating Designation G-60.

B. Material for the Top and Bottom Tracs shall be 16 Ga. steel. Material for the Post Mount and Vertical-H Tracs shall be 18 Ga. steel. The cross-sectional shape of the rails shall conform to the manufacturer’s roll-formed U-channel design.  Weep holes will be positioned across the Bottom Trac every 6”-8”.  Fence posts and gate posts shall meet the minimum size requirements of Table 1.

2.03 FABRICATIO
A.
All fence framework shall be pre-cut to specified lengths. The Post Mount Tracs shall be pre-drilled for attachment to the posts.

B. The manufactured steel framework shall be subjected to a thermal stratification coating process. Starting with the initial pre-rinse and cleaning, then adding a zinc phosphate protective coating, epoxy primer coating and heating process, and a separate electrostatic spray application of a TGIC polyester powder coat or acrylic inline electrodepostion E-Coat acrylic finish. The total coating shall be a minimum thickness of 4 mils (0.1016mm).  The color shall be (specify Black, Bronze, White or Beige).  The stratification-coated framework shall be capable of meeting the performance requirements for each quality characteristic shown in Table 2.

C. Completed sections shall be capable of supporting appropriate wind speeds according to ASCE 7-05 for Commercial/Industrial designed systems only. Residential applications will vary and wind speed testing can be calculated for an additional cost if necessary. Panels without special ornamentation or custom additions on top shall be biasable up to a 45% change in grade.

 

PART 3 – EXECUTION

3.01 PREPARATION
All new installation shall be laid out by the contractor in accordance with the construction plans.

3.02 FENCE INSTALLATION
Fence post shall be spaced according to FenceTrac installation instructions or Submittal drawings.  For installations that must be raked to follow sloping grades, the post spacing dimension must be measured along the grade.  Fence sections shall be attached to posts with self-tapping screws supplied by the manufacturer.  Posts shall be set in concrete footers having a minimum depth of 36” (Note:  In some cases, local restrictions of freezing weather conditions may require a greater depth).  The “Earthwork” and “Concrete” sections of this specification shall govern material requirements for the concrete footer.  Posts setting by other methods such as plated posts or grouted core-drilled footers are permissible only if shown by engineering analysis to be sufficient in strength for the intended application.  Alternative materials on posts are also possible with the FenceTrac system, additional contact may be necessary to complete special post installations.

3.03 FENCE INSTALLATION MAINTENANCE
When cutting/drilling rails or posts adhere to the following steps to seal the exposed steel surfaces; 1) remove all metal shavings from cut area.  2) Apply zinc-rich primer to thoroughly cover cut edge and/or drilled hole; let dry.  3) Apply 2 coats of custom finish paint matching fence color.  Failure to seal exposed surfaces per steps 1-3 above will negate warranty.  FenceTrac spray cans or paint pens shall be used to prime and finish exposed surfaces; it is recommended that paint pens be used to prevent overspray.  Use of non-FenceTrac parts or components will negate the manufactures’ warranty.

3.04 GATE INSTALLATION
Gate posts shall be spaced according to the manufacturers’ gate drawings, dependent on standard out-to-out gate leaf dimensions and gate hardware selected.  Type and quantity of gate hinges shall be based on the application; weight, height, and number of gate cycles.  The manufacturers’ gate drawings shall identify the necessary gate hardware required for the application.  Gate hardware shall be provided by the manufacture of the gate and shall be installed per manufacturer’s recommendations.

3.05 CLEANING
The contractor shall clean the jobsite of excess materials; post-hole excavations shall be scattered uniformly away from posts.
