Ferro Application?

Hi to all, since last posting I have been researching my build options for a cat around the 50 ft mark. I have had a lat of great input from this forum and thanks for that.I have read dozens of pages from a lot of designers and having spent most of my life in concrete construction, have started looking at ferro as a viable option. I have found designs for cats using this method but at this stage only up to around 35 ft. Realising i will open up a debate that to my knowledge has been going on since the 1800,s i am happy with the direction of my search. With that in mind anyone aware of larger designs or leads to the size i,m after thanks. Freelife and family

Hello Freelife,

You may want to check with these two designers

Both have experience with Ferro designs.

I have no financial or commercial interest in either.
