I'll give a brief explanation just in case. It usually comes in 4x8ft
size, it's made up of thin wooden stips criss-crossing one another.
Some people prefer to use this for their patio perimeter instead of
using wooden posts and rails. Although they would have to build a
frame in order to hold each piece. I'm not sure what else to say
about it beside it's cheap :).
better check with your code enforcement people before using it.. from
the picture it looks like its being used on an elevated deck to protect
the people from falling like a rail and the parts that go up to the rail
to stop kids from falling out and down... in some area it might be used
but in yours make sure as it might have to be replaced if not up to
code.. its called lattice or latice.. its used to hold vines in the
yard. pretty thin stuff, no strength......
That depends. You can get lattice that's fairly substantial. A few
years ago I used some lattice made of pressure treated 3/8" thick
strips for a patio cover. It had to support itself across 2' spans
without sagging. Still hasn't sagged. When I was putting it up I
supported/leaned my upper body weight on the middle of spans and it
didn't feel like it was giving.
