Imagine a square room with four walls (12x12). Say you wanted to string a net across the area at a height of 6 ft, like a hammock. The net will be attached on all 4 walls, and it must support up to 400 lbs.
How would you go about affixing the net to the walls? Assume typical home construction - drywall over a wood frame.
Clearly you would have to first attach some kind of (metal?) hardware to the wall, which you would tie the netting to.
Any other ideas? Any recommendations on what product/material to attach to the walls? Any recommendations on netting material? Must be safe enough to hold up to 400 lbs worth of people.
Thanks for all the advice. Will upvote once I have enough rep. What if I did this?
So basically run a 2x4 around the room. Then run the eye bolts through this 2x4, though the drywall, and into studs. That should help take some pressure off the walls right? And add some reinforcement to keep the walls from pulling inward.
