Computation Questions

Q: What is the computation service?

A: The computation service provides calculations for the brackets to your specific build, often building surveyors and council ask for these, otherwise its just a useful service to confirm the brackets can work in your set conditions.

Q: How much is the computation service?

A: The computation service is completely free!

Q: How long does the computation service take to complete?

A: Each job can vary and time of year is especially important, our goal will be within 24h, we will let you know if it is to exceed that.

Q: I need a Form 15, Reg 126, Certificate of Compliance.

A: These documents are not something we can provide in house, this is something an engineer we work with can complete at a fee. A computation form will still need to be completed in advanced.

Q: I don’t know some of the information your computation form is asking me for

A: The calculator we use in house demands all this information, we cannot help you if any details are missing unfortunately.

Q: Can i send you plans?

A: You can! Please know, we are not engineers ourselves, we use the plans to identify the pergola layout and brackets distribution, we will not accept plans as substitute of the computation form.

Q: What is the Maximum beam length supported by 1 bracket?

A: This is the distance a single bracket is carrying on its own, this is not the same as spacing but can be calculated by spacing.

Q: My pergola beam timber material isn’t listed?
A: What is listed is what’s in the calculator, opt for another timber type that shares the same timber joint group.

Q: I am using Aluminum for my pergola beam?

A: We cannot help with Aluminum connections currently, we are working on solutions, check back soon!

Q: My pergola isn’t a standard design.

A: Submit the computation form and send a follow up email with some plans explaining your situation.

Q: My top plate is less than 90mm

A: The brackets are 95mm wide, you should discuss options to widen the strengthen your top plate for a suitable installation.

Q: My calculations have the wrong information.

A: Calculations are to what is specified on your computation request, if something needs to be adjusted, send us an email or submit a new computation request.

Q: I have since changed my pergola design and/or values i provided on my computation request, are my calculations still valid?

A: No, if anything is changed from your original request and completed calculations, the advice is to resubmit a new form with the new information.

Q: Can i use my calculations on another job?
A: A new computation should be completed per job.

Q: Can i get a copy of the capacity tables.

A: No, the computation service is the route you should take for engineering information, it will check the loads such as Lateral and Uplift.

Q: How soon should i do this computation request?

A: As soon as you want! These calculations don’t have an expiration date and even if you didn’t plan to use our brackets originally, its worth having the ready as a back up.

Q: Can i get a calculation for 1 bracket?

A: The calculator only allows 2 brackets minimum to complete a calculation, email us your design and intentions and we will look into this further.

Q: Can the brackets be installed on lintels?

A: We encourage you to avoid installing on lintels – if they are unavoidable, you will need to discuss with a structural engineer how you can strengthen them.
