In some suburban cooperatives between sitesYou can not install a fence slate and other materials, as they are very obscure small areas. In this case, a good solution is to fence of mesh netting - it does not prevent the penetration of the sun on the site does not interfere with natural air circulation. Netting - an inexpensive material that can last very long. Its additional advantage - the ability to use as a support for climbing plants. The author of this successful invention was Karl netting. Grid was used as early as the end of the XIX century, it was originally used during plastering.
Netting - available material that canafford anyone with a suburban area. In order to create a netting fence with their hands, except the grid, you will need thick wire, reinforcing rods, wire and supporting pillars.
Fence netting can be a great hedge, serve as a support for climbing plants. In this case, the site will be much more beautiful
Today, manufacturers offer three types of mesh netting:
- neozinced grid refers to the cheapest, this option is better not to be considered as after a few months it could rust;
- galvanized netting is the most common - the price is a little more expensive than non-galvanized, but it does not rust;
- plasticized netting - a metal grid, which on top for corrosion protection cover colored polymers.
The latter option is very practical, andIt looked so much more aesthetic metallic mesh. Therefore plasticized netting, although it appeared recently, is already actively used by our gardeners.
When choosing the grid should pay attention to the size ofcells, the smaller their size, the mesh is stronger and more expensive. Grid with cells of 40-50 mm and a width of 1.5 m roll is quite suitable as a fence suburban area.
fence of mesh netting device can be different. The easiest way to make a fence - to pull the mesh between the posts. The pillars can be use metal, wood or concrete.
A simple way to make a stretch of netting fencewithout rods - mesh stretched between the poles and hung on hooks. Of course, over time it may sag, but a fence and can last long enough
The number of columns depends on the distance between thelength and sampling them. As practice shows, the best distance between the pillars of the fence of metal mesh - 2.5 m. As a pillar you can use pipes b / y, is not affected by corrosion. Now sold and ready for the fence posts are already painted, with hooks. Wooden poles necessary for the entire length before installation process preservative. You can use concrete poles and attach them with wire mesh or collar.
Article topic: Setting the fence pillars: methods of installation of various designs.
The height of the columns is calculated as follows. When the gap between the ground and the fence to the width of the grid need to add 5-10 cm, and then another half-meter, taking into account the underground part. As a result, you get the average height of the column required for the future installation of the fence. The load on the corner posts will be a little longer, they should dig in deeper, however, and their length must exceed the length of normal poles about 20 cm.
Based on all the pillars for greater strengthbetter concreted. Columns represent the sampling frame, after you install them, you can start to fix the net. After the concrete hardens, or attached to poles are welded (if metal pole) hooks for attaching the mesh. As a material for fasteners fit screws, rod, nails, wire - any material is folded into a hook. Bolt with mesh straighten and set at the corner post, the net hang on hooks.
To ensure a good tension and strengthconstruction, in the first row of the grid cells vertically threaded rod or a thick wire rod attach to a wooden pole or welded to the metal. Fixed so the grid does not sag and gives way, as it often happens without such attachment
Then the roll is rewound on the flight to the nextcolumn. A little farther on the place where the grid is connected to the post, in a similar manner threaded rod. Hold on to the rod, and stretch the net, if the rod is not used simply to pull his hands, you can pull a net uneven. The best way to do this together - one person at the bottom edge, the other - at the top.
Now the net is threaded fittings horizontallyat least 5 cm on both edges, top and bottom. Horizontal rods are welded or attached to posts. If you pull the grid without rods, with time, it will sag and the rods will maintain its tension.
Driving sampling device made of galvanized mesh with wire reinforcement on top and bottom. This fence is more robust design
Similarly, the act, and then - stretch the grid, fix, stretch the wire or rod, anchoring or welds.
The fence is now almost ready to bend the hooks onpoles and paint columns. Protruding wires "mustache" is better to wrap down so that no one was injured. Conveniently thread the wire through the top row of cells and wrap protruding edge around it.
Here, the "antennae" gently bent down to the rod, in such a fence can be dried things, the risk of injury from missing
"Antennae" of the upper cell to bend in order to avoid accidental injury. In this photo, they are slightly bent - there is a risk to get hurt or tear clothing
Well, as the saying goes, better to see once:
To produce this type of fence needed section, where it will be mounted grid. First, similar to the tensioning device to the fence marking or installed pillars.
This scheme can be used as a basis to determine the proportions of the future construction (click to enlarge) sizes
You will need to buy Area size 40/5 mmcarcass fabrication. the frame length is determined as follows: from the distance between the posts subtract about 10-15 cm - this is its length. We subtract the same number of column height above ground level - the amount received - a frame width. The corners are welded to the rectangular design. It is possible to make the size of the sections on the basis of the grid size (1.5 m -2), it is possible to unwind the roll and, if necessary, reduce the size of the grid to the right grinder.
Then the posts are welded horizontallyMetal strip (length 15-25 cm, width 5 cm, the cross section 5 mm). Along the edges of the column you need to retreat to 20 cm, set the section between the two pillars and, using welding, attach it to the horizontal bands. It now remains only to paint a new fence.
Rods 4 mm cross section are threaded through the mesh with 4party, first in a series of extreme, then the top and bottom of the grid you need a good pull rods and welded to the corners of the section. (The rods are welded to the horizontal corners). It turns out from the corner section with mesh netting, welded on the inside rods
On an incline do not stretch the fenceIt will, in an inclined position is not possible to pull the net. For oblique sectional area can be made fence installing on both sides of the pillars sections at different distances on the soil level.
Make your own fence of mesh netting can each host familiar with welding. With work, usually 2-3 people cope in a relatively short period of time. Be of good cheer!
