I want the fence to be reliable and durable, and could also serve as a beautiful addition to the house. One of the most popular and easy -to -erection is a fence of corrugated sheets of corrugated board.
The first thing to do is the plan of the site on a scale of 1: 100. It marks the places where the support racks will be (profile pipes with a rectangular or square section). Racks should be located evenly and at a distance of not more than three meters. To increase the number of supports is possible only on the leeward side.
Next, you need to calculate the amount of the required material and set the boundaries of the fence from above. To do this, using a water level, determine the changes in heights. Pegs are installed in the corners of the future fence, and a rope is pulled between them. On the formed direct line, the places of future pillars are noted.
Pits under the supports are digged with a shovel or drill with a diameter of 30 cm and to a depth of about 70 cm. In order to arrange them correctly, it is important to know what type of soil on the site. With clay soil, a pillow of sand is made with a tamp, and with sandy- gravel is poured.
To protect the pillars from ground and wastewater, a waterproofing layer is applied to them. The height of the layer should be 30 cm higher than the ground level.
The next stage is the installation of supports in the pits. At the same time, it is important that they stand at an angle of 90 °. You can check the angle of inclination with an angle or water level. Pillars are temporarily fixed using wood or metal spacers. It is necessary that all of them are located on the same line, and if you pull the cord between two extreme racks, it must touch each of the ones located in the row.
After the supports are placed, the pits are poured with a thick mixture of concrete and gravel. When the solution froze (it is better to wait a couple of days), the struts are removed. The sheets of the corrugated board will be attached to the transverse crossbars, which must be welded by electric welding.
The frame is ready and you can start fixing profiled sheets. They are attached to the crossbars galvanized self-tapping screws, which are screwed into the waves with a distance from each other 25-35 cm. In conclusion, the fence is covered with a primer for metal surfaces and painted with enamel in several layers. Such a protective layer will protect it from corrosion.
