      Wouldn't it be better to have rectangular tube with tops welded on them? It'll fail badly when it does, but that would be stronger and cheaper, wouldn't it??

      I would expect welding them all together is a good idea because everyone is going to walk past that fence and try and make them all wobble...

        The flat bar in that fence is 20mm thick. 8mm will wobble in a storm.

            Visually I think the hollow tube would be a lot bulkier than what we are looking for

              I donít think so.
              Hereís a pic I found of one that looks close to the dimensions Iím thinking of, though itís probably only 1m high. Mine will be 900-1300 (sloping block)




              Bought some this morning and it certainly seems rigid enough that it wonít noticeably move from wind.

                That pic still looks like 12-16mm plate.

                I don't dislike the look of it but do you need to consider public safety where this fence is? It wouldn't feel nice falling on it or a kid crashing their bike into it

                  Yeah maybe 12mm
                  I will test some 10mm but so far it looks good.
                  Council are happy with it. Maybe ill radius the corners a bit?

                    As long as council are happy with it then its all good I guess!

                    Yeah would definitely radius the edges a few mm. Maybe put up a few signs suggesting people don't fall face first onto it also

                      Something like 10mm Hardox 500 wont deform fuck all if you have an issue with the mild stuff.

                        Are you installing a scale model of Trump's Wall?
                        "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

                            Ah, Northcote. Needs a fence that no-one can balance takeaway coffee cups on.

                              Maybe if I built it last year....The hipsters all use re-usable cups now

                                I just said how far in the bars into your footing I would do it. The footing would be deeper but a 900 strip footing is a bit mental for this.
