Re: Chain Link Fence Backstop

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Search the archives...there was something about a year or two ago.  I believe they don't work as cantilevered post structures; if you try to make it work with the little posts you see in most backstops the whole thing has to act as a semi-rigid structure.

I'm designing a baseball backstop for a city recreation park in Florida.  The Owner wants a 28' foot high backstop - 18' of chain link fence topped with 10' of netting.  I'll check for adequate wind load strength as an open sign using ASCE-7.  And I'm planning on checking it for a railing horizontal load to allow for people leaning against it.
Any words of wisdom from others who have done one of these?
