Corrugated Metal Fence

I have a new customer who wants to build a corrugated metal fence, similar to the attached photo. I'm wondering a few things...
1. what the framing between the posts would look like to attach the metal panels to.
2. Can I get corrugated metal sheets that are wider than 2'? (5-6' would give me a solid panel). Or, if the metal panels are only 2' in width, should they be attached to each other at their seams (if so, how)?

I'm expecting huge wind shear, and we have heavy wind gusts in Boulder... so my fence panels won't be too wide (5' maybe). They will be ~5' tall of metal, and 1' of wood at top. 4"x4" cedar posts, 2' deep.

Any ideas/suggestions welcome.

Re: Corrugated Metal Fence

Check this site out:http:

If you are concerned about high wind load & gusts, considering the solid panels in the fence I would go with 4x6 posts min. of 30" deep @ 4'+/- oc. The panels on the site above come 48" wide. Your framing between posts will be horizontal purlins min. of a top, bottom & middle support.
