Forged fence with his hands

Work on arrangement of wrought fence will require considerable investments of time and effort.In addition, the need to purchase or rent special equipment for the manufacture of decorative items and learn how to work with it.All this you will learn about the presentation of the guidance.

Equips base

Employment in manufacturing wrought fence begins with the arrangement of a reliable, durable and high-quality base.Reliance will have a columnar-belt look.Poles will keep the fence sections, and a continuous concrete strip to assume the weight of the assembly.

What do the pillars?

to manufacture bearings use a reliable, strong and durable material.Wooden beams obviously will not work - it simply will not sustain the weight of metal sections, and if they survive, it will look like this design is clearly not the best way.

pillars can be made of concrete, brick or metal.Each option has its own characteristics.

supports Type Description
Metal poles are highly resistant, durable and long service life.The material is sold at an affordable cost, does not require any complex additional preparation and processing, it can be easily transported and installed.Supports may be of square or circular cross section.The minimum diameter of a rack section -. 6 cm The rest focus on the size and weight of future construction.
Brick pillars well carry the load caused by a variety of heavy and tall structures, on the premises and our wrought fence.First post is laid perimeter of the bricks, and then laying the gap is filled inside the valve and poured concrete.Also fitting build into the masonry.As a result, these will be attached Prut intake section.
Concrete support to endure the most severe external influences, are as long as possible and in full harmony with the hardware.However, with all its advantages concrete pillar has a very serious drawback - they can normally withstand the stresses created by sections up to 150 cm when installing more impressive elements of support can collapse under its weight..

most often forged sections are used in conjunction with metal studs.This is the fence we are building.The choice is very good - do not have to bother with masonry, formwork plus concreting and other related activities.

Making foundation

first step. perform marking the perimeter of the site in place of the fence installation.By marking dig trenches.The depth and width of the pit chosen based on several factors, including: the characteristics of the ground at the site, especially in the region of climate, altitude fencing sections etc.Optimum performance considered width of 30-35 cm and a depth of 70-80 cm.



second step. Along the perimeter of the excavated trench mark up space for racks.Pillars mount with the same pitch.Medium walk -. 1.5-2 m The rest focus on the size and weight of the fence, as well as the width of the sections and features of a design idea.Racks digged into the ground about 35-40 cm. The diameter of the hole should be slightly greater than the size of the support.Fall asleep holes for the pillars of 10-15-cm layer of gravel and compacted.Concrete is not pour - do this when casting tape.

third step. tamped and leveled bottom of the pit, and go to sleep after his 5-10-cm layer of sand.For best compaction, watered sand.

fourth step. carry out reinforcement.To do this, connect the valve with a diameter of 12-14 mm into the net with a 10-centimeter cell.For connecting rods use binding wire.

reinforcement perform better in 3 layers.The first grid we are laid on the bottom of the trench on top of the sand layer, a second grid fix approximately in the middle of the pit, and the third - almost at the apex of the recess.Grids are fastened to the supporting pillars dug using a binding wire.Welding is better not to use becauseAfter pouring the concrete, we will need to align the support and the welds will not be allowed to do so.

fifth step. Set the formwork at the edges of the pit.To assemble the formwork boards can be used, but if you have enough budget to do a better form of laminated MDF.The use of this material will provide the foundation with perfectly smooth edges visible, do not require additional finishing.

sixth step. poured concrete pits poles and tape.

seventh step. While concrete is not grasped, put out by the level of support and fix in position using wooden stops.We leave them to complete solidification of concrete.It will take 3-4 weeks.

This reliable and durable basis for our wrought fence ready.As long as the concrete hardens and gains strength, we will deal making section and decorative elements is building fences.

For the manufacture of structural elements will be used a steel rod.But to give the bars required form, would have to buy or borrow the temporary use of special equipment.What is it?Read more.

How to make decorative elements?

Bending Machine

Such elements are manufactured with a variety of bending machines.The following types of equipment are used most often.

  1. «Gnutik".This device allows you to bend the metal rods to the desired radius and angle required.
  2. «snail».This machine allows us to give the bars a spiral shape.
  3. «Template».Flex metal rods in a circle.Available possibility of changing the radius of the circle.
  4. «Twister."Another unit for twisting of rods in a spiral.You can replace a vice and yews.

You do not have to spend money to buy or rent all these units.Take 1-2 tools (machine) and in accordance with their capabilities, create design sections.Or you can pick up instruments in accordance with the already approved design - be guided by the situation.

For example, a device called "Gnutik" will allow you to create the rounded elements and peaks - for decoration wrought fence is sufficient.This rounded products at the same time take on the role of stiffeners.

Production and installation of fences

sections we gradually come to the most interesting and important stage of the work.We operate in the following manner.

first step. is exactly in horizontal section that can freely accommodate at least one section of the fence.You can use a large work desk, or do you do everything right on the pavement.

second step. Using chalk draw on the basis of the fence section template.We draw the ribs of the protective and decorative elements.Accordingly, the pattern can be collected and all other sections of the fence.

third step. With the bending machine or special tools required us to create a number of decorative elements.At this moment the focus of the project, drawn up in accordance with our ideas, requirements and preferences.It follows that the shape and dimensions of the product coincided with a painted pattern contact.At this stage the steel rods cut into the desired length.

fourth step. In accordance with the template grasp all the elements spot welded section.Check the accuracy and smoothness of the connection parts.If everything is in order, perform the finish weld.

The same procedure collect the right amount of fence sections.

fifth step. We clean welds, remove traces of corrosion if they are detected.

sixth step.We cover metal products and special protective primer paint.This finish allows you to simultaneously improve the appearance of the fence and to ensure its protection against rust.

seventh step.Mount ready section.For their attachment to the support posts using the welding machine or special clamps.Do not forget to leave openings for the installation of doors and gates, if they have a different structure from the fence.
