Too complicated for Somchai, that happens if u build without a proper architect and engineer.... They have that here, it's just that lifes are less important than saving architect fees.

I always say, if you think employing a professional is expensive wait until you employ an armature

Welding proficiency...

 

Probably total inadequate basic structural design at the moment connection.

With all respect, but how would anybody trust such a rope construction?

 

  Five adults on it is insane. 

 

 

 

Not quite what I posted 5+(?) years ago, when the place was publicised on TVF.

 

( I think I added:   "........over a river?........in Thailand!?" )

It's the same idea as defensive driving on the roads here, you have to look at things and assume that they've been badly designed, corners have been cut in the building and the cheapest, shoddyist materials used for the construction, then weigh this all up and decide if it's going to be safe enough to use.

   Helps if you were a builder or, ideally a structural engineer in a previous incarnation. Welcome to the third world...

I think you're trying to put some spin on that.

'Came with weight warning'

Perhaps the 'weight' warning was something like:

Wait to see how long before this structure collapses when overloaded.

I think i've been to this resort, it belongs to a blond farang lady who works there...

 

There also was a tire hanging above the stream, when i stood on it it suddenly broke....

And the Thai only fix things after accidents have happened..they will never fix it or even check it.

The structure was unable to take the weight of the tourists. The poster said that they were not aware if the structure came with a weight warning

Or a building certificate?
