Height of overpass

I can’t find the exact height of the overpass. I’ve checked the Arena Manual but can’t find anything.

Any help would be appreciated

As per Section 6 of the manual, page 6:

The horizontal portion of the OVERPASS is 6-1/2 feet above the floor.

6.2.2 The OVERPASS

The horizontal portion of the OVERPASS is 6-1/2 feet above the floor.

Pages 5 & 6 of The Arena.

Is this the bottom, middle, or top of the overpass rail that’s 6.5’ from the floor?

The top rail where the trackballs sit is 6.5’ from the floor.

I knew that question was next for some reason. lol

Looking at the multiple CAD drawings here may give you a more exact point that the 6.5’ mark is.

I haven’t had time to look at them in depth, but probably will in a little bit, and then I’ll try and come up with a better answer as I CAD everything out.

I would advise against planning for an exact height. You should always plan for the specs to be a little off.

The fields usually don’t maintain the exact specs for many reasons, damage, settling, changes to ease construction, sagging…

Plan for it to be the correct but be prepared for it to be a bit off.

FIRST explicitly says to expect changes of up to 1/4". This is due to different crews setting the thing up. (Trust me, it’s harder to set up a field than it sounds.)
