In recent years, small towns and villages, streets nestled on themcottages began to decorate fences of profile sheet.At first glance it seems to be a simple thing - to build a fence around the house, but if you decide to take as a facing material steel sheet, then first you have to learn how to make a fence made of profiled sheet.It is important to understand the ability and the characteristics of the material used and the sequence of operations.First of all you have to do the installation of piles, subsequently you will strengthen the horizontal joists, and to logs - steel sheet.
However, the construction of the fence begins long before these actions.Pay special attention to the preliminary selection of all the necessary materials.Now we are going to do this because of the right choice will depend on the durability and endurance of your fence.
Profiled, in fact, is profiled steel sheet.There are several kinds of construction materials which are distinguished:
- dimensions (height, width);
- type of coverage;
- primer layer;
- profile shape;
most common wall sheets are considered to be the brand C-8, C-20, C-21.The figure is an indication of the magnitude stiffeners.For installation of fences suitable C-profile 20 - accessible on its cost and having sufficient rigidity and therefore resistant to mechanical stress.What is important, and indicators such as the thickness of the profile.The most popular are the steel sheet thickness 0,4-0,5mm.The optimum thickness of the sheet for a conventional fence - 0.5mm.
coating profiled sheet
The following coverage options:
- sided polymer coating;
- bilateral polymeric coating;
Of course, the type of coating profiled sheet greatly affects its value.The most economical option in this respect is galvanized sheet (without coating), and the most expensive - steel sheet with double-sided polymer coating.
posts and joists
fence Installation of profiled sheet
for the post should be fine shaped tubes (60 × 60mm) - it is convenient to weld logs that fit snugly to established posts.It can be used as pillars and round pipes.
Sectional tubes measuring 40 × 20 × 1.5 mm are suitable for the manufacture of a lag - the best combination of strength of the material with its low cost.For the construction of a massive fence should choose more powerful lags that fence was strong.Here savings to anything.If
fence height of 2 m and 2.5 m distance between the posts, the load on each column will be about 20kg.When this calculation load your fence will not lag subsidence that will provide high structural strength.

- pole setting.
- Attaching lag.
- Mount sheeting.
marking under the fence Construction of the fence, start with identifying and marking reference points:
- Determine the location of the angular and extreme poles.
- determine where to install the pillars for gates and wickets.
- Install supporting pillars and between the pull rope (for fast and accurate determination of the place of installation of other pillars).
- Install intermediate poles at a distance of 2.5 meters from each other, secure the rope to the prescribed level.
Ribbon foundation under the fence
There are two ways to install the pillars: the method of plugging or concreting.
If you choose to use the method of clogging pre-drilled into the ground hole depth of approximately 1 meter.You will be much easier to install a post, and this will help to reduce the deformation of the top of the column when driving.
In the case of concrete, you will need to drill a hole with a diameter of 150-200 mm at each pole.The resulting hole set the pole and fill with concrete the space formed around him.All future work should be done after solidification of the solution.
Install posts equidistant from each other (through the ropes) at a distance of 2.5m.
Mounting trapezoidal sheet Lags are fixed by welding to the established poles wide side, which ensures a high structural strength and prevents sagging.Fixing lag is performed at a distance of 25-30cm from the top and bottom of the fence.This ensures reliable fastening of profiled sheet.
As a result of this work you will have the whole rugged metal construction fence, fixed in the ground.To place the welding seams are not very distinguished, they should tint.If you are unable to use the welding, it is possible to dispense with bolts or screws.
At the final stage of work you need to set the level of steel sheet and attach them to the joists with screws.Your fence is ready!
