W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., - Three primary factors define the success or failure of any attempt to forcibly penetrate a security fence system: the tools and devices employed, the number of aggressors and their level of sophistication. A newly approved ASTM International standard can be used to measure the resistance of fence systems to such an attempt.

ASTM F2781, Practice for Testing Forced Entry Resistance of Security Fence Systems, was developed by Subcommittee F14.50 on High Security Fences and Perimeter Barriers, part of ASTM Committee F14 on Fences.

According to Charles Naegele, P.E., an F14 member, ASTM F2781 will provide a test that allows users to differentiate levels of effectiveness among the many types of security fence systems currently available. Potential users of the standard include the military, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, industry and utilities.
