From the rich assortment of building materials,suitable for the manufacture and installation of gates, individual developers often choose corrugated board. Preference is given to the building material for several reasons, among which are the strength, durability, decorative, and, of course, reasonable price. Decking is made in the factory of steel sheet by cold kata. On both sides of the sheet metal profile is applied to the protective layer of zinc coating that protects the metal from corrosion and premature failure. For added protection, and enhance the decorative qualities of corrugated board coated with a polymeric layer, which colors can be very different. In order to make the gate of corrugated board with your hands, you just have to find a couple of free days and a couple of free hands. After all, to build together is always more fun and faster. However, in addition to the need to stock up on hand welding machine and a minimal set of tools.
Why profiled? Because it provides:
- The durability of the structure. Manufactured their own hands can stand the gate twenty-five years, it does not need special care and maintenance.
- Low weight used building materials, which facilitates installation as well as the delivery of all the necessary object.
- Choice of texture and colorStarting from household preferences of the owner. Gates with style in a wall, roof and other elements of decoration plants, standing on the site, will decorate any territory.
- Save on ink, because the gate of corrugated do not fade underthe action of sunlight and do not fade under the influence of an atmospheric precipitation. When buying pay attention to the producer, for forgery can not possess such qualities.
In addition to all the other things - of course it's a small price compared to other building materials, and taking into account their characteristics.
So, there are several types of constructions of gateway, among which the most widely used two variants: swing and sliding.
Sliding doors of metal sheets is quite difficult to design their own hands, so the task is better to invite professional builders
Independently collect the lighter swing gates,consisting of two identical halves, each of which opens at its side. Of course, you can make and one large flap, turns to one side. However, in this embodiment, a large load falls loop which is hung on the whole "large object." Therefore, most developers prefer the classic two-step design of swing gates. To travel to the territory of the site of a passenger car and a small truck is sufficient to construct the gate width of 4 meters. The height of a welded frame can be 2-2.5 meters.
Important! If there is free space gate can be installed next to the gate. Otherwise the gate (door) cuts directly into one of the doors.
The support poles for the gate can be built from the following materials:
- wooden beams, whose cross-section is 150 to 150 mm;
- solid round logs with a diameter of at least 20 cm;
- of channel beams, the thickness of which is 14-16 mm;
- shaped tube (80x100 mm), wall thickness of which is 7 mm.
After marking the area begin to dig holes for the installation of portal pillars, using ordinary garden spade or auger
Having defined the material for the pillars,proceed to digging wells, the depth of which is equal to one third of the height of the aboveground part of the gate pillars. At the same time we must note that the canvas of the gate leaves are usually made half a meter shorter poles. This margin allows for lower gate edge lifting from the surface of the soil at 20-30 cm, and leave a couple of tens of centimeters from the top for welding decorative elements that adorn the entire structure.
Stability of the gate depends on the strength of the pillars;therefore, for the manufacture of selected steel products. To set the profile of the pipe or channel iron beams are drilled hole 1.2 meters deep and a diameter of about 20-50 cm. Prepared metal posts fall into the pit, put up on the level in the upright position and filled with cement mortar. Preparation of the pillars is sweeping the surface from rust, followed by priming and painting, as well as the installation of the upper plugs, prevents snow and rainwater.

Profile plates are divided into three groups, which differ from each other in thickness, rib height, the degree of strength. Each group has its own marking:
- "FROM" - Wall trapezoidal sheet, made fromgalvanized sheet of small thickness having a small height of the ribs. Lightweight and yet robust material that usually opt for self-gate installation.
- "NA" - Steel sheet, wherein the material of the previous brand larger wave height and a greater thickness. It affects their weight and strength level.
- "H" - "Ball" steel sheet used in the construction ofiron hangars and a large area device of roofs. Heavy profile sheets of the stamps have an increased level of safety. Apply them to trim woodwork expensive and impractical.
It is best to build the gate of the trapezoidal sheet markC8 and C10 (the numbers indicate the wave height in millimeters). The thickness profile of the sheet is between 0.4 and 0.8 mm. Valves of this material weigh 25 to 40 kg, so to cope with their mounting under the force of two workers. Lifting equipment do not have to draw, which will save on the cost of the goal.
Important! Cutting profile sheet on the desired size is best to book at the plant (if available). The special equipment available in the production, it is possible to ensure cutting accuracy, accuracy of the cut line, as well as minimize the amount of damage.
The frame for making leaf gates can be donewooden boards or of rectangular shaped tube (40h20 mm) whose walls have a thickness of 2 mm. If the metal poles placed, then the frame should be made of the same material. It is going frame gate on flat ground, accommodating at least one leaf. To get straight angles, using precise measuring instruments (triangles). You can also use a homemade device of the rope, developing in a right triangle with sides 3.4 and 5 dm. From Profile welded frame in the form of a rectangle with the help of welding inverter, with the corners further strengthened with steel corners, giving the structure more rigid. The long side of the frame is divided into three parts, and is sealed to the marked locations parallel bridges, strengthening connections and steel corners. In these places are welded hinge gate.

Important! If you are about to take a wicket in the gate leaf, the frame is a little different. In one of the valves via longitudinal and transverse crosspieces welded to the rectangular frame, the gate frame creating of 80 to 180 cm. This hinge is displaced to the location of the lower and upper edge of the gate.
To trim frame profile leaf begin herethe frame assembly in place. special fasteners used to secure the profiled sheet - screws with hexagonal head, painted in the same color as the base material. For gate hinges sheets with wavy surface bolted or welded welding. loop length for the gate should be no less than one meter, and their thickness - not less than 3 mm. When installing the valves can be collected to use a small winch, which cling to the beam, the position of top gate pillars. On the ground are placed bars, which set the gate leaf to secure the welding on the pole ends of the loops. It is possible to fix the safety net hinges bolts. Bruschi was removed from under the gate leaves and check how easy they are closed and opened.

As you can see, nothing complicated in the construction of the gateshaped sheet no. We only need to draw a diagram, calculate and purchase all the necessary materials to carry out installation work. A few days of work and the beautiful gates of metal sheets will be the hallmark of your home.
