Which material is good (cost and strength wise)

  1. Mar 12, 2013 #1
    I'm currently designing an observation deck as a project.
    We have to consider a strong, light and cheap material that will hold 15<x<25kg.
    I considered bamboo, any other ideas?

    How big a platform and how high?
    The 15 to 25kg load measure you give is insufficient to give any response.
    Is that the total load, ie a toy platform, or the load/m2 or what?
