variety of types, colors and textural patterns allows you to choose the option that will be the perfect accompaniment for the stylist to the already erected structure of the house.

Positive qualities of concrete fences are many, so they increasingly prefer other guards.These benefits include:

  • durability and strength of the material in the correct set design.
  • on smooth concrete surface finish is great to go to any material, whether or decorative plaster decorative tile.
  • If the fence is being built monolithic, it can be raised to any height without gaps and joints.
  • If selected fence, consisting of separate plates narrow, its installation is quick enough - just one day can be built the whole structure.
  • Concrete structure is the most economical of all the other capital fences.

There, truth, of such fences, along with the positive and negative aspects:

Concrete structures rather heavy , therefore, can not be installed on loose or loose soils, or when installing them require special strengthening.

Installing concrete fence - much more expensive than fences made of lumber and corrugated board.

When mounting the fence, consisting of separate sections, often impossible to do without special equipment for their lifting and installation, which the call is also expensive .

If arranged monolithic concrete fence, make sure you need a cement mixer, as the need is very great number solution, which produce hand is simply unrealistic.

for all, without exception, concrete fences, you need a reliable device foundation.

From all this it can be concluded that the construction of fences, concrete - quite troublesome and costly event, but such a structure will last for decades without much care, so this choice can be considered very practical.

The work always begins with planning everything foundation for the fence

installed on strip foundations, which is filled in the following order :

  • First produced marking areas for further trenching.

When markup is taken into account that the width of the tape foundation should be 100 ÷ 150 mm longer than the thickness of the fence.The depth of trench should be 800 ÷ 1000 mm.

  • Further, at the bottom of the trench is filled moist sand, which must be carefully compacted.A layer of sand cushion shall be 120 ÷ 150 mm in compacted form.
  • on the sand was covered with polyethylene film which will serve as the foundation of protection from the effects of ground moisture. film should come out of the trenches 500 ÷ 700 mm, as further along the pit will be built to raise the formwork above the soil foundation with 200 ÷ 400 mm.
  • On film is filled with a layer of gravel - just 100 ÷ 150 mm.

  • On gravel set reinforcement design, which adds strength foundation.
  • After marking the distance between the posts of the fence, welded pipes for reinforcement or reinforcing farm - it will serve as a basis for further construction of pillars.
Installed formwork

  • Further along the trenches expose the wooden formwork.The polyethylene film , leave it inside and later give birth to the upper edge of the boards to the outside. film not allow concrete to flow into the cracks between the boards, and thus moisture will not evaporate too quickly, and concrete solution evenly attains the desired strength.

  • trench is then filled with concrete solution made of sandy gravel and cement , the proportion of 3: 1.
  • If the fence will enclose a large area, the concrete is best as kneading own such a large amount of solution is quite difficult to order ready-made, taking into account that the foundation should be poured once completely from top to bottom formwork.Otherwise, between the layers may remain unnecessary gaps, and when hit by water and by lowering the temperature of the foundation can be damaged .
  • surface of the poured concrete is leveled and left to solidify and harden.
  • Usually Intersection columns of bricks laid, but you can make them concrete.To do this around the reinforcing structure or the pipe, built corresponding shuttering of boards, which is also filled with concrete.
  • If the fence sections are composed of several modular elements, for their installation are special columns having side slots into which is then inserted decorative plate.

should be noted that if you select this option the fence, then it is possible to arrange and pier foundation, carefully marking up the distance between the posts. Nevertheless , poles after installation it is necessary to link the border.Its filling is performed in the same manner as with band basis, it is also hardened armature, but only deepens 200 ÷ 250 mm.

Species concrete fences

On the foundation laid, you can set different types of concrete fences.Thus, the concrete barriers are divided into monolithic, modular, prefabricated and type-setting types and samostoyaschie .

Dialers fences

Dialers fences consist of several sections, which in turn placed in the grooves already exposed vertical pillars.Usually this type of fencing have multiple sections, the top of which differs from the bottom that have decorative elements in the form balusters or embossed patterns.

Such fences are installed on strip foundations, which pripodnimut them over the soil to the desired height, or on the pier foundation with established borders between the pillars.

Precast fence

Block fences

This type of fence is laid concrete (aerated concrete or aerated concrete) blocks, which are shaped like large bricks, and accordingly laid on the principle of masonry.However, very often in the construction can be further applied decorative elements, which have the appropriate size, fits perfectly into the overall design of the blocks.

elements intended for the construction of columns, for example, are placed on the supporting columns, walled in the foundation.

Laying all the elements made in cement mortar, thereby obtaining solid construction.

Just like brick, block masonry requires special skills.Not so simple as it seems to build a flat wall of the relatively small size of elements.Therefore , producing work, you need to keep on hand building level and to control the vertical fence plumb.

often a fence from conventional units require decorative finishing plaster or tiling.

Such a fence would cost always more expensive than the sectional concrete fences, so in addition to the material itself must take into account the cost of considerable masonry works and finishing.

Protection from monolithic slabs

Monolithic slabs are easy to install so that the entire length of the fence can be installed on the prepared foundation in just a single day.For the construction of the pillars often use elements that are designed to block-type fences.It is possible to build supporting pillars and brick.

If used for the protection of the usual smooth concrete slabs, in order to fence acquired aesthetic appearance, decorate it with decorative plaster in combination with artificial or natural stone.

can be purchased already decorated plates, but they will be much more expensive.Furthermore, they may be damaged during transportation or unloading, and because of this, have then put them in order.

Samostoyaschy fence

This type of fence is most often used for temporary installations on the territory of the various projects under construction, since it does not require device foundation under them.Sections of the fence are set perfectly for a wide bottom.By End of need to dismantle the fence sections, loaded onto trucks and transported to the next object.

process of erecting such a fence requires a great deal of experience in such work, since only dilettante may seem that bricklaying - simple and accessible to anyone who wants to deal with.In fact, each master has its own secrets that make the fence neat and durable.

funda nt to I like fences arranged so the same way as for the concrete fence, because the whole structure is obtained massive enough in general.

Fences made of bricks are completely closed or masonry can be combined with other elements, such as wrought-iron grilles .In the latter case, the entire area is in sight, and the fence will protect only against the penetration of the territory of the unwanted guests, but do not close the area from prying eyes.
