There's a Euro Standard that stipulates draw heights, the same heights will be in the soon-to-be-released Aus Standard - I'd be surprised if they are not following these standards? The first draw must be no higher than 3.6m, then there is a formula to follow. E.g if the first is at 3.0m, the 2nd is at 4.0, the 3rd at 5.2, the 4th at 6.6. After the 4th the interval can be greater than 1.4m according to the formula but we keep it at 1.4 after that.

Does anyone have an estimate of the heights there?
