    Anywhere there is a doorway into a room or hall is a good place to put an overhead panel that is 18 inches by 4 foot as a super gusset and in appearence is a header panel with decor on it, mainly it is structural gussets and not relying on just over head bracing and standing T shapes.

    People tend to grab wall edges and a human adult leg can easily thrust 500 pounds so 6 people can be pushing 3,000 pounds, so you make sure your system wieghs about 4,000 pounds in an over view locally. Plus you try not to create the situation where it is 6 people pushing one of those football sleds in the way you get people to keep moving. Yucky looking things and textures will also make people want to stay off the walls. If there really is a people are going to hit the wall, that can actually be an entirely seperate sled kind of wall that is padded and weighted down but when hit does not take the whole haunt and move it one way or the other.

    Another fabulous post from the U.S.Department of Wild Imaginings, now in spectaclar stereo, sponsored by the Adhesives and Sealants Council, suggesting ways to stick things together since the 1800s. Not fabulous in a gay way. Your results may vary. Illinois residents add 8% sales tax. These posts have been made by professional post makers, do not try this type of posting on your own without extensive training, lovely assistants and a trusty clown horn.
