We need some shade in our new conservatory (just completed) and were thinking of a sail blind 3m x 2.4m to block the worst of the sun.

We have tried some stick-on hooks with home made curtains but keep falling down and Hillary's is so expensive; £3450 just for the roof!

My question is it safe to drill on the roof struct (on the centre), see attached photo?

This is to fit a hook to attach a carbine type hook and then the sail blind eyelet.

Cheers,

Graham.

Don't think anyone is going to take that responsibility (when I did my apprenticeship a warning about indiscriminate drilling came home with this story: a small private aeroplane owner wanted a place to hang his jacket in the cockpit, he drilled a small hole to screw a hook into, months later his wing fell off due to a crack emanating from the hole he had made in the spar!)
I have drilled in my conservatory frames but what often happens is that the drill bit hits the [ section and wanders or breaks!
