I am drawing up a steel wrought-iron style gate, can anyone point me to a website that shows strengths needed for the components? It's about10 feet wide by 5 feet high with 3/4" sq tubing for the verts and 1"x2" for the horizontals. Would a 3", schedule 40 pipe and 1/4" plate w/home-made hinges work? Gate will be approx 160 lbs. Thanks for any advice, yes, I googled this but did not find answers.
