RE: Wind Load on Wood Fence

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Great thread!

So far the most salient question has not been asked, although Bill came close when he asked how many fences have blown over:

How many *injuries* have been caused by wood fences blowing over?

For those of you who have had fences blow over, were you seeking shelter from the storm next to your old fence? <:-) Just a guess, but I'll bet that falling trees and limbs cause FAR more injuries than falling wood fences.... (If a new code section for tree & branch analysis is added, someone please shoot me.)
