Heinz, If you go to my main page and check the comment wall there, and "view thread" the details are shown.

There is something odd about how this site presents comments and replies, so i also cut and pasted the detail here:

I did the hangar from 5 metre lengths 35 mm dia 1.6 wall Al tubing for the straight runs of the roof and 2.25 metre 3mm wall tubing for the sides that fits inside the straight runs, with a 75 degree bend near the junction. the apex joins are of same 3mm wall tube bent 30 degrees. The side tubing ends are bolted to wood posts in the ground giving a width of 11 metres and height at the apex 3 metres, and about 2 metres height near the sides. there are also 5 tubes along the length, 1 along the apex, and front and rear end braces.
I have a brace tube at the rear from the apex down to a post outside. Spacing between portals is 1.95 metres because the polyester tarp needs joining space from the 4 metres width it comes on the roll. 50 metre roll. 315 gsm weight.

regards, Ralph
