Arena Guardrail Deflections

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I’m checking a guard rail in an assembly/egress location.  The section proposed gives a total deflection of post + top rail of about 14mm (9/16”) of the post hgt of 1070mm (42”).

 

For an assembly area this still seems a bit high. 

 

Also my client is proposing a top rail 1”x2” tube …

 

What do you think?

 

TIA
