Founded in each of us an instinctself-evident in an effort to protect your home from the dangers. Fences, gates and gate are mandatory protection element. But man is not alien also desire to surround themselves with beautiful objects. Because it is not surprising that modern elements fences in addition to direct destination also serve as decoration area. The gate of corrugated established their own hands - one of the most acceptable options for a reliable and aesthetically attractive design that can decorate the front portion of the zone.
Before you make a gate, offer to find out what are the advantages of profiled sheet over the other not less popular building materials for the manufacture of walling.
For a number of the major advantages of corrugated board are:
- Excellent quality characteristics. The material of manufacture appear profiled sheets, which are covered with several layers of protection: corrosion and after polymer on the outside and on the inside - the varnish.
- Simplicity and ease of installation. This material is ideal for arranging fences andwickets. Construction of light and at the same time durable metal plates can be erected in just two or three days, which in turn speeds up and reduces the cost of construction. Erected gates and fences of corrugated board looks solid and thorough.
- Aesthetic appeal. Undulating curved metal platesmay have quite a variety of shades. The use of colored polymer coating by staining corrugated sheets makes it possible to choose the color of the product necessary to make the gate, which is complementing the ensemble, will be in harmony with other construction structures at the site.
- Long service life. The service life of structures equipped with floorings, can reach more than 50 years.
Thanks to multi-material processinghas high corrosion resistance and ability to maintain aesthetic appeal even when exposed to UV radiation and weather conditions
When planning to make in the fence gate, it is important first of all to determine the dimensions of the structure. Optimum width of the gate - no more than 1 meter in height - no more than 2 meters.
Competent settlement will prevent problemsassociated with premature wear loops and lock design, as well as resulting in inconvenience during use when opening a wide sheet web
Wanting to create more than an overall design should take into account the time that the increase in the sash weight may result in accelerated wear of locks and hinges web.
In the manufacture of the gate height of more than twometer frame structure, it is desirable to complement the upper insert with a cross. This will provide a ready-made continuous web, which not only closes the space over the gate, but also reduce the load on the support post.
In order to make a solid gate oftrapezoidal sheet, which will be regularly over the next few decades, you need to properly equip the rack for it. As the support legs can perform metal pipes or pillars of stone or brick. When mounting racks important to monitor deviations from the vertical position, which can lead to a misalignment and malfunction of the finished product.
Prevent sagging support column arrangement will help the foundation. The depth of his favorites is 1-1.5 meters
As for the foundation pit dug vertically onlevel established posts and filled with a solution of fine gravel sand and cement. Over the next 7-10 days concrete "ustaivayte" and solidifies.
The easiest way to frame made of profiledmetal tube section 60x30. In order to cut the workpiece and weld the gate need welding machine and Bulgarian. Before cutting the pipe on the workpiece is important to clean it from rust and scale with the help of grinders impaled on a metal brush. After that, the surface of the pipe is necessary to degrease primed rust inhibitor.
During installation should take into account the time that the distance between the door leaf and covering tracks or pavement must be at least 100mm
Note! Operating clearance is necessary for normal functioning of the structure, even when a cluster of ice in winter.
Having defined the size of the gate, you canstart making its frame. To do this on the profile tube is necessary to note the size of pieces and cut them at an angle grinder 45 degrees. Creating a chamfer will improve the quality of the weld, thus making it virtually invisible.
For the arrangement of gates require two1.75-1.9 parts by longitudinal m and 2.3 parts by transverse 0.9-1 m. Details welded together tack 2-3cm around the perimeter of every 20-30 cm. The longitudinal and transverse tube, including a central transverse tube must be placed exactly perpendicular to each other. The distance between all the horizontal elements must also be the same. This will not only give more rigidity, but also make it look more attractive.
To increase the strength of the structure, can be laid on the diagonal elements of the upper corner of the porch in the lower right corner to hang the rack
To improve the strength of the gate can also beperform a smaller inside frame of the same frame size of 20x40 mm tubes. Warn frame distortion during welding from overheating by doing the tack staggered. Once welded frame for the gate, proceed to the installation of additional elements - sheds, plates for fixing the lock and the external handle.
Triangular "gusset" of steel plate welded to the parts connected to each other, will improve the strength characteristics of the whole structure

After completion of welding works it is necessary to perform cleaning of welds, damaged areas priming and painting the frame.
Decking can be easily attached to the frame withself-tapping screws or rivets. The distance between the fixings depends on the preferences of the owner: You can attach each sheet wave, and it is possible and through one. It is mandatory only fixing profiled sheet to the middle frame bridge.
can be used to install a gatetraditional metal hinges and fashionable plastic curtain. If the racks are used metal poles, the curtains are welded directly to them. For brick or stone pillars hinges are attached by welding to the profiled pipe, fixed anchors or dowels on the pole. Ready gate can be mounted on the support and verify the operation of the lock.
To the gate did not open on both sides, on the opposite support is welded restrictor from the corner. Mock strap will also help cover the gaps between the pillars and the gate blade.
