    It's a width question - I want to use two sheets of 25mm, joined in the middle with a timber support bar. The sheets will be 3m x 1.6m. Coming from a wind damage point of view, I've been wondering whether the above dimensions will be considerably weaker than, say, three sheets of 3m x 1m covering the same area. I know it'll be stronger per se because there'll be two support bars, but just wondered as to the flexability of these panels in extreme weather like the gust we had recently.

    I say this after looking at a few carport designs and noticed how they used many panels as opposed to a few large ones. Had me thinking that the weather issue was the reason behind that.

    Should've mentioned it'll be open on all sides and be about 2.5m in height, minimum.

    A large fire is always helpful.

    I'll be fine with two sheets at that thickness, apparently. Just in case anyone was interested...

    Couldn't you just dig out a big cave... no wind damage then.

    I could imagine you living in a cave.

    2 sheets would be fine.

    people normally use smaller ones as they are easier to handle and replace if required. also you have more joins so can alter the widths easier without the need to cut one down.

We just don't have cleverly put arguments or discussions any more just dumb idiots - myself included - who can't express themselves adequately without crossing a socially unacceptable line that other members don't want to cross.

    Then then when you do post, there's always someone who'll turn your comments or request for advice Into a negative personal bashing. I've practically given up with FB, am only posting sport or club related promotions on twitter for the best part, and more and more finding that becoming inclusive and rejecting any form of social media has it's attractions.

    Vis a vis I posted on stw yesterday re some 29er advice which has resulted in some personal comments being levied against me. wtf, I really can't be arsed to entertain that even when posting content deliberately designed to be generic.

    Peace out. V.

    WTF? My visible excellence is actually out there being published and on sale in Waterstones, Foyles, WH Smiths, and all good book shops thank you very much :-)

    Anyway how was Karlos racist? he just said 'don't fancy yours much' which is fair comment really.

    rearding it taking 70 posts to tell you you aren't that fast, that is the reason I only have trolls on STW, the place is far to polite for people to say what they actually want without fear of being moderated/toed inline with their Guardian-labour wanker voting ways.

    By The Way, what is an FRO 29er? Is that like a 29er for the Jackson Five circa 1972?
