Fence Panel Evaluation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello All

I have been asked to evaluate the fence structure.

Each Fence panel is 11’-0” tall x 6’-0” wide. Frame is constructed 
with 2x6x.25 Alum 6061-T5 material.

The infill is .125” Alum 5052 cut in a decorative pattern with 60% openings. 

The  frame is supported on a single ¾” dia centered in panel at top &
bottom, with the bottom a mounting bracket within the 2x6 tube.

Frame weight is 280lbs.

I see I can check the moment in the bottom tube cantilevered from the
support bracket and the wind load on the side frames and bottom frame.

Where do I find the equations for Aluminum ?

Any other thoughts on what I should lookout for ?
