The National Association of Architectural Metal Manufacturers (NAAMM) provides consensus products for specifications, procedures, and terminology for metal bar grating, expanded metal, hollow metal doors and frames, metal flagpoles, metal stairs and railings, and metal lathing and furring.   As an ANSI accredited standards developer it provides public commenting opportunities on its consensus products; linked below:

We encourage our colleagues to communicate directly with the standards staff at NAAAM: Vernon (Wes) Lewis, 123 College Place #1101, Norfolk, VA 23510, (757) 489-0787, wlewis7@cox.net.  At the moment we find no public commenting opportunities but on selected holidays we revisit its flagpole standard.  Keep in mind that this document has a scope that is limited to the product and its appropriate application and maintenance only:
