We are doing an arch for Relay for Life. The track is approximately 12' wide and there will be 300+ cancer survivors walking through it. We are wanting to make it star shaped. Do you know the dimensions?

Thanks

Material for Walt-Through Arch
by: Margit

For a walk-through arch it's best to use either 1/2" PVC conduit or 1/2" aluminium rod.

Walk Through Arch
by: Margit

Hi Amber,

I am afraid I can't help you much here, as I haven't done a star shaped walk through arch myself. There is a simple formula how to calculate the length of a normal arch that might give you some clues - you find it under balloon arch instructions.

You could also read through Balloonhq's section about balloon arches. There's more information about calculating the length of an arch.

Hope that helps at least a bit and good luck with your "Relay for Life".

Margit

P.S.: If you want to take the easy route, why not buy a complete balloon arch kit?
