Chain Link Fence with Eye Bolts - FS-1.1

This plan was formerly used as Chain Link Fence Types 3 and 4 (former Standard Plan L-20.10-02). To be consistent with industry standards, the eye bolt assembly has been replaced with a tension band assembly. This design continues to be offered to accommodate existing installations that are required to be maintained. Although new runs of this type may be placed, the design shown on Standard Plan L-20.10 is the current WSDOT standard and shall take precedence. If this plan is used, Standard Specifications section 8-12 and measurement and payment for "Chain Link Fence Type ______" would apply.

Chain Link Fence with Top Rail (FS-2)

This plan shows the installation requirements for four and six foot high chain link fences with a top rail.

Chain Link Fence with Top Rail - FS-2

The top rail prevents the chain link fence fabric from sagging. It is usually placed around storage yards or similar locations where appearance is a consideration. However, fences with top rails cannot be used along highways where there is a possibility an errant vehicle could strike the fence. Although new runs of this type may be placed, the design shown on Standard Plan L-20.10 (PDF 25KB) is the current standard and should be preferred.

Note: Listed in the Special Provisions, under Control of Material, Section 1-06 "Buy America", the H-Column is no longer available.
