While I would agree with all of the previous responders, I would also suggest that you offer your client a possible fix to the problem. Depending upon your design and materials it might be possible to strengthen the structure by attaching multiple (3 or 4) bars to a pole or tubular members, doubling or adding additional bracing if a lattice structure and even adding guy wires (although this is least likely to be worthwhile). James Cohen, PE ---------- From: Alex C. Nacionales Sent: Thursday, August 20, 1998 19:35 To: seaint(--nospam--at)seaint.org Subject: Tall Signs I designed a tall steel frame (82') for a sign company . The sign company increased the height during construction by 20 feet. The design is not adequate for the increased height with the sign in place but the sign company said that they will take off the sign material ( thick cloth with Print ) during storm signals. The design is adequate for the bare frame. May I have your opinion regarding this. ALEX C. NACIONALES, C.E.
