Question for fabricators

Might seem like a stupid question but here goes

When you stack slabs on an aframe does the angle change as you add slabs. In other words...If there are four slabs on an aframe is the four slab at a lesser angle than the first one. Also how many slabs are safe to store on an aframe. Interested in everyones response.

If the slab sits on the member that holds the slab from the very bottom, that member is on an angle.. That angle does not change as the slabs are set onnit... Providing the slabs are set with no space inbetween. i.e. flush against each other. Conversely, if the slabs are set with air between the lower segment of the slab, the angle will change.

Thanks..just what I thought..Also how many of you fabricators strap your slabs. Strapping during storage not transport.

Howdy Fred,
Don't have a slab yard, but every one I've been in did not have straps. Granted, just have seen those in Ohio and more specifically around the Cincinnati, Columbus and Dayton areas.

Don't recall ever seeing straps on the slab storage racks down here in Texas either. Suspect sheer mass and gravity is enough to keep them from falling (blowing) over.

WZ straps their slabs (due to their lawyers I assume)

No one else round here does.
