Gazebos - one of the most popular itemslandscape design, which allows to transform the look of any area. The variety of products made from wood, metal, polycarbonate and other materials allows the owners of country houses to choose the gazebo that will help create an atmosphere of coziness and comfort. Polycarbonate arbors hands - optimal option of creating strong, durable and still visually weightless design which will decorate the yard for many years.
Keep in mind that you did notgo wrong if it is used in the construction of polycarbonate. This material has been widely used construction, it has a number of properties that are beneficial to shade it on the background of other transparent building materials.
Due to the special structure of the material polycarbonate plate upon impact is not broken and does not give the chips and cracks
The main advantages of polycarbonate include:
- High impact resistance (8 times stronger than acrylic plastic and 200 times stronger than glass).
- The extreme lightness (6 times lighter acrylic and 16 times lighter than glass). Under the installation of light panels made of polycarbonate does not require thorough support structures.
- The ability to withstand temperature extremes from-40 To +120 degrees, and snow and wind loads. This feature makes the ideal polycarbonate roofing material for gazebos, greenhouses, and other light-crossing structures.
- High heat and sound insulation and light transmission performance with transparency up to 86%. The outer side of the panel is covered with a special layer that protects against ultraviolet radiation.
And the material is easy to process - bending, drilling, cutting.
In addition, the cost of polycarbonate panelsmuch lower in comparison with the same metal, and a wide range of colors allows you to choose the best option, the use of which will perfectly fit into the design of the site design
Setting gazebo made of polycarbonate with their hands, as well as any building structure, carried out according to a specific algorithm.
Pergolas are placed in the vicinity of the house, as well as a recreation area. Well, if this place will be located in the shade and away from drafts.
Selecting a location for the gazebo depends primarily on thefunctions that will execute the design. Planning to create a large area of the capital gazebo, should prepare the ground for the construction of the structure. For this purpose, suitable flat ground, the groundwater level which is low enough. With a platform in the valley, should protect the structure from flooding, and for this to build a solid foundation for it. Pergolas can be installed directly on the ground, so a specially erected platform - based. Deciding to create a gazebo to relax and gather at the table cheerful companies, as the base is quite enough to install only support tubes.
If there is a pond on the site, it is not unreasonable to place the gazebo near him so that in the midday heat to provide additional fresh air
The most common form pergolas: square and rectangular, triangular, round, and oval. The design of the traditional square gazebo can be decorated with a pent or gabled, so hip-type roof
If you can not under the small and lightweight arborslay special foundation is required for the erection of the foundations of capital structures. To do this, make a layout area and marked for future columns carcass. Fill area under the gazebo can be performed in parallel with the installation of the columns. To set the columns you need to dig a pit the size sufficient to fit inside the two bricks. There should still remain a place to sleep 10 cm soil layer.
The bars are mounted inside the pit, covered screenings and filled with cement. Cement hardens within a few days
The bars are mounted inside the pit, fillscreenings and filled with cement. Cement hardens within a few days. To prevent the ingress of moisture in the curable cement in the hole, it is possible to cover the base of the columns wrap.
manufacture of materials can act aswooden poles and metal profiles. Wood - inexpensive and convenient to use and to extend the service life requiring constant care. Metal - durable and resistant to temperature extremes material service life is longer than an order of magnitude in comparison with a tree.
The principle of the assembly frame resembles the work of a designer, and quite easy to perform
The elements are held together with wooden structureusing nails and screws, and a metal - screws and nuts. When working with a metal is desirable to combine connection types, using well weld parts.
Polycarbonate can be not only materialeverything for the roof, but also for wall coverings fragments. Windows made of polycarbonate for the gazebo will bring additional sunlight into a cozy sitting area and give ease of construction. Shaped holes in the side surfaces cut with a hacksaw, will create the visual effect of weightlessness and fishnet.
If you do a roof made of polycarbonate, it can be fixed by means of conventional screws. There are also special thermowashers
So first on the prepared sheetspolycarbonate transferred the outlines of light crossing parts of the arbor. Thereafter, using an electric jigsaw, a handsaw or a sharpened knife cut along the contour details. Sufficient ease of cutting the sheet - one of the valuable properties of polycarbonate. To connect to a metal structure in the polycarbonate parts, drill holes.
Rubber washers with the screws and silicone sealantswill avoid undesirable leaks in the construction and destruction of the base sheet. For the isolation of corner joints and connections of several parts, it is desirable to use special items that can be purchased together with sheets of polycarbonate.
Comfortable and beautifully decorated gazebo willfavorite area in the garden where you can enjoy the singing of birds and unity with nature. In addition, to communicate with the guests will no longer need to go into the house, and instead spend time pleasant conversation outdoors.
Vines planted along the walls of the gazebo and Entangling design give this corner special appeal and cosiness
Garden furniture made of polycarbonate is able to serve as a functional element of landscape design for a term not less than ten years. Special care does not require the construction.
The windows and roof pergola made of transparentresistant to temperature of material sufficient to periodically wash water from a hose or wipe the dirt off with a damp cloth. Contaminants are easily removed ordinary soapy water. For cleaning is undesirable to use detergents which include chlorine, alkali, salts and harmful abrasives, under the influence of which can damage the outer UV protection layer.
The sheets of brightly colored tones used instead of conventional transparent sheets, allow to give the design of the original species
