AbstractEarly in October 1949, the Division of Building Research was approached by the Director of Woodlands Research of the Pulp and Paper Research Institute of Canada and asked to test a recently-developed paper mesh snow-fence. The chief advantage of this fence is that it is considerably cheaper than the wood-slat type. As the member companies of the Pulp and Paper Resarch Institute make extensive use of snow fencing every winter, they were anxious to obtain a report of the performance of the paper mesh fence.This is a report on the performance of the paper mesh fence under test.
