Hey, the local hardware understood cinder blocks :smile:#1, There concrete blocks not "cinder blocks" unless your using blocks made in the 50's.
Without a better idea on what you mean by "canopies it's anyone's guess on how best to "hold them down".
Is this just for a single event are these going to be permanent?
Trying to figure out why you would be using concrete blocks instead of Sona Tubes.
Thanks, the holes are 5x5x8, I was asking because I had previously calculated it would take 9 60-lb bags using an online calculator and somehow 9 bags seemed like a lot to just fill 16 concrete blocks so I wanted to ask just to be sure.if a hole is 4x4x8x32=4096 cubic inches
one cubic foot =1728 cu. in.
you need 2.37 cu ft.
2.37/.45= 5.26 bags.
The holes will be bigger than 4" so you can do the math your self.
At a guess 9 sounds about right.Thanks, the holes are 5x5x8, I was asking because I had previously calculated it would take 9 60-lb bags using an online calculator and somehow 9 bags seemed like a lot to just fill 16 concrete blocks so I wanted to ask just to be sure.
Thanks, looks nice, but we need the 10x20 and that one is 10x17May cost more but its complete.
It's very unlikely we'd ever want to move it.So you will need 8 people to move one?
It's likely about 300-350lbs of weight holding it down, I would think it'd take a really strong storm to move it, thankfully such storms are fairly rare in our local area, if a really strong storm was forecast then the solution would be to simply take the top cover off till the storm was over.I would hate to see you in a hurricane.
Your canopy won't stand a much less storm than a hurricane.
Just go and talk to artists at local art and craft shows and pick their brains about flying canopies.
