Every owner who purchased a plot for the construction of a summer cottage, dreams of enclosing everything with a reliable fence. In modern conditions, this is not just an attribute of the site, protecting private territory from outside eyes, but also an indispensable attribute that emphasizes the aesthetic nuances of the landscape.
Various materials are used in the process of its erection. Particular attention deserves a fence, erected from corrugated board. This raw material is extremely popular, with a huge number of positive qualities and characteristics. Possessing a certain skill and adhering to some rules, it is possible to install a fence of profiled flooring with your own hands.
About the metal fence of the corrugated board
Equipment of the territory with a metal fence made of corrugated board is considered the most common and accessible way of fencing the site. Being erected, a similar fence will reliably protect any allotment of the earth, perfectly correlating with any design decision. This was made possible by the fact that the profile cloths in a large color range, with a huge line of shapes and sizes.
Mounting of such fences takes place in tandem with metal poles. The finished design captivates many positive qualities:
- - simplicity of installation;
- - strength;
- - a high degree of protection;
- - durability;
- - unpretentious in service;
- - a solid level of noise insulation;
- - modern, stylish appearance;
- - relatively inexpensive cost.
Materials from which fences are made from the profile.
For the erection of fencing from profile sheets, you need to stock up some building materials. Without them, a normal fence can not be built. We are talking about:
- Profiled sheeting ─ a universal material. Its installation is quite simple. Thanks to this, the costs associated with construction are relatively low. In addition, the price of fence remains relatively low, and the profiled sheeting itself attracts strength, reliability and comfort;
- Supports, which are used as a number of special metal pipes, round or square section. In some cases, it may be brick posts.
- Lagah ─ transverse metal elements that serve to securely fasten the supports and enclosing coatings, making the fencing of the sites particularly durable.
- Fastenings ─ dowels, able to firmly fix the entire structure together.
How the territory is marked along the perimeter of the
Before starting the construction work, it is necessary to mark up the territory and collect a number of necessary data regarding the perimeter of the site. It is necessary to clearly calculate the number of pillars that will be needed when building a fence. Then the marking is done on the terrain.
At first, the pegs are clogged in the corners. Between them stretches a thread along which the necessary marks are made. At the same time, a roulette is used. On the basis of the data obtained, the future fence made of profile canvases is being developed.
Construction of various types of fences:
By definition, fences from profiled sections are of two types:
- Fences, where metal pipes stand as supports.
- Enclosures in which the support posts are laid out of bricks.
Similar fences are made in the following varieties:
- structures in which corrugations are located at the entire height( from the ground to the upper edge);
- structures where the linen from the profile is supported by a concrete foundation, or a brick edge connecting the support posts.
The first version is considered more economical, since there is less material needed for construction, which means that the construction itself will be easier. The second option looks more beautiful and respectable( however, it will require large labor costs).
Fences where the metal pillars serve as support posts are arranged in the following order:
Step 1. Corner posts are installed in the places indicated by the land surveyors. For digging the next column, digging out the required depth of the pit( so that the fence well resisted the gusts of the wind, it is advisable to load a pole a third of the length into the ground).Greater reliability and stability is achieved by pouring grooves with concrete.
Step 2. Mounted formwork to create a rim that connects adjacent posts. The size( width) of the latter entirely depends on the desire of the owner( aesthetically beautiful design looks at 15-20 cm).
Step 3. The distance along the length of the fence is divided into 2.5-3-meter lengths. Between the corner points the thread is stretched.
Step 4. According to the markings, the poles are piled in. The best visual effect is achieved when the supporting poles are located at equal distances. For greater comfort, the second thread extends in the lower part, so that it will be easier to build the pillars in a single plane.
Step 5. Concrete is poured into the finished formwork container. In this case, it is advisable to additionally test the accuracy of the vertical, longitudinal and transverse position of the columns. After this, the structure should be left to dry completely.
Step 6. A set of horizontal cross strips are hung on ready poles, which can be welded.
Step 7. The vertical sheets of corrugated board are fastened. For fixing, a set of roofing screws for metal is used. The market of building materials offers an extensive range of similar fasteners, the most diverse form and color shades.
The process of erecting a fence in which bricks are present are more expensive and laborious. As a result, a fence is created, conquering with its beauty and practicality. It perfectly correlates with any design of private houses in which there is a brick. Ready-made structures of this type are incredibly elegant.
Such constructions are created as follows:
Step 1. Determine the location of the sides of the fence, and also formwork for the foundation. The latter is created with mandatory reinforcement( using metal fittings.) This is necessary since a priori brick has a significant mass, which means that the columns of bricks( together with the lintels) will be quite heavy, and the foundation may not withstand the load.brick.
Step 2. There are laying out pillars and intermediate jumpers. With standard fence height at the levels of 20-30 cm and 150-160 cm from the ground level, the brackets are laid, to which, in the future,
Step 3. A set of horizontal slats is welded to the mortars, it is advisable to cover the whole set of horizontal metal components here, so that they are not affected by atmospheric precipitation, and corrosion does not develop either.
Step 4. The sheets are fastened to horizontal slats, using roofing screws or rivets that are fixed with a rivet.
Step 5. To make the brickwork of the pillars able to withstand the atmospheric precipitation, the top is mounted on top.
Fencing from profiled sheeting
In order to maintain this fence for a very long time, it is desirable to clean it regularly from dirt. You can use any soap solution. In this case, it should be remembered that in their composition there should be no solvents, as they can damage the profiled sheet.
