>Did you think about asking the manufacturer?
Sure, and when they open I will. I figured in the mean time I would pose
the simple question to a group of folks very interested in towers. Simply,
has anyone installed them, and if so, how did you do it. I guess that is
too complicated a question.
In a couple weeks I'll have this experience, I suspect the answer will be
something like this:
You stand the sheets up around the tower, use a webbing strap to tighten
them against the tower. Once in place, drill five holes in each sheet where
the pre punched holes line up. Run the sheet metal screws in securing the
sheets in place. Release the webbing strap and the sheets should be tight
enough to not rattle and also make a reasonable mechanical bond. If you are
concerned with the possible noise of an unbonded piece of metal, add a
bonding strap from the bottom screw on all three sections to the tower
I got lots of responses from folks that couldn't answer the question, but
frankly that's not a lot of help!
