How to Place a Pergola Beam

A beam spacing of 16-20 inches is common. The most important distance rule is to keep the distance between all barriers constant. First, assemble the front and rear beams and attach them to the front of the support posts above the joist.

And how big must the trusses of the arbor be?

The standard dimensions for the distance between the pergola beams are 12 “and 16” decentralized beam burners. This is a measurement of the center line from the center of the board, approximately three-quarters of an inch from the side of the board to its narrowest side.

Can a pergola also be self-supporting?

Self-supporting pergolas have at least four uprights and, as the name suggests, stand upright without being attached to any other structure or wall. The advantage of free-standing pergolas is that there are no restrictions on overall size, height or orientation. However, there are always limits to the width of the bars.

Do you also want to know how far apart the slats of a pergola must be?

For trusses and battens, we initially recommend 18 centers. (Note: the small pergola trusses are 1 3/4 x 3 3/4, but the small and extra heavy wood pergolas use the same 1 3/4 x 5 3/4 beams as the large pergolas.

)In which direction should the pergola be oriented?

For better shade coverage for most of the day with an open pergola, place it with the beams facing north and south. As the sun moves, the farms cast large shadows under the structure, except around noon when the sun is directly above them.
