Rack size

Hi,

I need to build a rack out of RHS that will house two 4 x 2 x 2 tanks, one above the other.

I am planning on using 50 x 50 RHS but am not sure of the thickness needed.

Does anyone use anything similar or have any suggestions.

Thanks

Paul.

hi Paul

75x25x2.5mm will give you a very strong rack, with no fear of it ever sagging. be sure to have 2 cross bars through the centre [total 4 per tank] black or gal, it's your choice, either way give it a good lick of undercoat and finnish with an epoxy based paint. want to go high class? get it powder coated :lol3:

Colfish,

Thanks for the response, all I have to do is get the materials and I can get it welded up for nothing.

Your support is much appreciated.

Thanks

Paul
