The Balcony is on a cantilever setup off the main beam of the building.
The wall for the hall is built on this beam.
My plan is to have the first 3" of the stand resting on this.
Then one set of legs up against the well.
And then two hevy legs resting 2 Ft from the balcony.
This will ensure that the load is spread over 3 points.
One being the main beam of the building. Another 6" from it.
ANd the last 18" from it.
This way I am not loading the edges of the balcony.
My main reason for posting here ws to get a feel for what gauge metal to use.
has 4x2x2 Tanks on gague which is under 4mm thick.
But some innovate support bracing.
Guess Ill just hit up the local metal sellers and ask them.
Dont worry about the sun. I have a tank in the same location on the top floor and it does fine.
Its only a footer though.
