"The splice kit is designed to prevent common problems associated with splicing in the field, such as corrosion, oxidization, and contact with BD Loops' new splice kit is designed with inductance loops in mind, to create an easy and effective watertight seal over a spliced connection. Used in the field, this kit effectively repairs damaged lead-in wire or allows more wire to be connected to the leadin, according to company general manager Brian Dickson. Without the protection against the elements that a water-tight Splice Kit offers, spliced inductance loops often short to ground. The splice kit is packed with multiple lengths of double walled adhesive shrink tubing, as well as a strip of glue water," said Dickson. "The double walled adhesive shrink tubing creates a tough waterproof seal for direct burial use or to be run through conduit." A soldering iron, as well as a heat gun or blowtorch, is required to use the splice kit. For information about the BD Loops splice kit, visit or call 714-890-1604. Fence ordinances from around the U.S. As part of an ongoing and longstanding series, World Fence News offers this "snapshot" of building ordinances which affect fence installations from municipalities across the United States and Canada. This information was taken from official sources, but you should always consult the appropriate building departments where you plan to work for specific requirements. Dallas, Texas A fence and screening wall must be structurally sound. It must be capable of supporting its own weight. It must be properly maintained and not out of vertical alignment more than one foot from the vertical. Fences in single family and duplex districts may not exceed four feet above grade when located in the required front yard. Fences in a required yard may not exceed nine feet in height. Fences in multi-tenant districts may be built to a maximum height of six feet. A fence in a multi-tenant district may not exceed four feet above grade, except when the required front yard is governed by the side yard regulations. A master permit is required to erect any fence or wall over four feet high in the front yard or over six feet high if located elsewhere on private property. Fence heights in single family and duplex districts shall be measured from the top of the fence to the level of the ground on the inside and outside of any fence. The fence height shall be the greater of these two measurements if the fence is constructed on fill material that alters the grade, as determined by the building official, the height of the altered grade shall be included in the height of the fence. For the purpose of this provision, altered grade means the placement of fill material that exceed a slope of one foot of height for three feet of distance. In all other zoning districts, fence heights shall be measured from the top of the fence to the level of the ground on the inside of the fence. Barbed wire may not be used for fencing unless it is located six feet or more above grade and does not project beyond the property line. Fences may not be located in easements. Fences must provide fire-fighting access to the side and rear yard. A fence must not be placed or maintained within a visibility triangle at street, alley or driveway intersections if the fence is higher than twoand-a-half feet measured from the top of the adjacent street curb. A corner lot has special provisions that govern the front yard. If fence panel set back is required the landscaping must be approved by the parks and recreation director. All screening of off street parking, garbage storage areas, etc. must be constructed and maintained in accordance with applicable codes and ordinances. Construction fences are under the jurisdiction of building inspection. Existing swimming pool installations require that all gates and doors into swimming pool enclosures which continued on page 64
