Abstract : Thirteen different corrosion-resistant chain-ink fencing systems were installed to evaluate their performance in a marine- atmospheric environment. These included metallic, plastic-coated, and alloy wire fencing. The test fences were inspected periodically and evaluated for performance during and up to 12 months of exposure. Samples of the same fencing materials were also subjected to the salt spray (fog) test to determine if a correlation exists between the results of the accelerated laboratory test and field performance. Materials, labor and total installation costs are also presented. (Author, modified-PL)
