I'm building a campus board (a training aid for rock climbing) and my landlord wants to know how someone can be sure a person's body weight can be supported from it.
I'm at a loss on how to give him a calculation for this, I've been very impressed with some of the calculations offered here on other subjects. Can any of you help?
The construction details are - Studwork: Structural 6 x 2 CL 25 grade timber. Glued and fixed with 4" 12's with PZ3 head screws. Left side stud fixed with silicone and 12 no fixings into plasterboard reveal. Right side siliconed, fixed at 3 points into 8mm thick steel column, not compromising structural integrity. Cladded with 12mm WPB hardwood ply. Campus board: Formed of 4 x 2 CL 25 grade timber. Studwork; cheeks, bottom & face formed of 2 no 12mm WPB hardwood ply. Glued and screwed with 3" 12 PZ3 head screws @ 150 centres. Mounting: Fixed directly to 6 x 2 studwork with 4" 12's with 18 no PZ3 head screws into back rails, 6 no 8" 12 timberlock decking screws.
