vertical support we will be concreted.To fill professionals recommend using a mixture of grade not lower than the M200.Buy it or do yourself.

first step. perform marking territory.This will help us any firm pegs and strong cord.First, we find the starting point - the first corner of our fence.Arrange the remaining corners.In each of them trying to drive on a peg.Also exhibiting pegs around the perimeter fence of the future.We adhere to step 1-1.5 m. Separately, the installation location of intermediate supports.To drive benchmarks relate rope.

Making frame

start making framework.To do this, we use a profiled metal tube or corner.Also quite suitable profile for fixing plasterboard.

Make a frame for fixing of polycarbonate

Make a frame for fixing of polycarbonate

frame has a very simple structure.For its production we do the following:

  • mark up to the uprights point for mounting horizontal beams.We maintain the same pitch in the range of 60-100 cm;
  • welds to the posts or else fasten them with screws;
  • carefully we clean the welds, and after gruntuem and paint the metal parts exposed to corrosion.

frame ready.

fixation was performed with 30-40-centimeter increments.Screws are screwed not to the end.Otherwise, the polycarbonate may crack under thermal strains.Also, a small gap (3-5 mm) leave between sheets and other structural elements.The gaps can be further disguise using H-shaped brackets.

It is necessary to fix each of the bolts is strictly perpendicular to the sheet material in order to avoid forcing a different surface of the sheet
