ASTM F964-13 is considered the “end all, beat all” testing specification for Vinyl fence. The purpose of this specification is to establish a recognized standard of quality for exterior Vinyl profiles for use in assembling agricultural, commercial, and residential fencing and railing. This specification covers Illusions® Vinyl Fence sections and the EverStrong Profiles used to fabricate them.
Illusions® Vinyl Fence Products are manufactured to meet cell Class 1–32333–3 as defined in Specification D4216. Illusions® compounds have higher cell classification because one or more properties are superior to those used in standard acceptable compounds.
