How to make a fence from the profile pipe

The so-called profile pipe differs from other tubular products in the shape of its cross-section, which may have a rectangular (square) or oval section. The high popularity of the profile hardware is explained by the peculiarities of their configuration, thanks to which their strength characteristics significantly exceed those of products from a round pipe. As for the other advantages of products of this class, the following ones deserve our attention:

  • relative ease of the construction of shaped pipes;
  • low labor costs;
  • low cost .

The advantages of shaped tube products manifest themselves most clearly in the manufacture of fences and fences of various configurations. In this article we will try to acquaint you with how to make a fence from a shaped pipe with minimal cost. As an example, we have chosen the option of welded fencing, which is distinguished by its increased reliability (compared to such well-known structures as modular fencing).

Materials and tools

Successful construction of a welded fence from metal profile is impossible without the use of the following materials and special tools:

  • a set of shaped pipes with a wall thickness of about 3 mm and a cross section of 40x40 mm (50x50 mm);
  • supporting columns of metal pipes suitable size (100mm);
  • billet cross profiles used as crossbeams;
  • welding machine;
  • clamp, sledge hammer, shovel and construction level.

How to make a fence from the profile pipe Welding of pipes

The main difficulties in arranging fences of this type are associated with use of welding equipment and with the presence of certain skills to work with him. We note in particular that all billets of shaped tubes must be fitted in length before welding, after which they must be trimmed.

Preparing the sketch and making sections

Before In order to make a fence from a profile pipe, you will need to prepare a sketch of a separate intake section and draw a diagram of the entire assembly structure as a whole. You can always find options for circuit solutions using profile pipes on the Internet, or you can prepare them yourself. Further operations on the construction of the fence are usually performed in the following sequence:

  1. First, from the existing billets, the frames of the intake sections are welded. In order to avoid displacement of the blanks during the welding process it is recommended to fix them with the help of special clamps.
  2. Then the filling pipes and the decoration elements chosen for your taste are welded to the already prepared frame.
  3. After all the fence sections are ready, you can proceed to assembling them at the final installation site.
  4. Earthworks begin with a marking made in accordance with the dimensions of the prepared sections and consisting in designation of the location of pillar supports.
  5. After this, you can start preparing the pit, the width of which should be 100 mm larger than the diameter of the supports used. When choosing the depth of the pit should be based on the characteristics of the soil in the place of their preparation. For dense soil, this figure should be one meter, and for the loose layer of the earth - 1.5 meters. The bottom of the finished pit is then filled with a layer of rubble about 30 centimeters thick.
  6. After thoroughly tamping the bottom of the pit, a metal support is installed in it (a pipe of the appropriate size), which is first covered with rubble and then poured with cement mortar. To strengthen the structure of the support, it will be possible to fix it with the help of additional stretch marks.
  7. Immediately after the solution has grabbed, you can proceed to the installation of sections of the fence, which, after careful alignment, are placed between the pipe supports and welded to them.

In the event that special fasteners are laid in the structure of your fence (loops with hooks, for example), then they are assembled by hanging sections onto supports.

Concluding remarks

How to make a fence from the profile pipe Decorated fences made of shaped pipes

In some cases, selected Your decorative elements (usually made of thin pipe) are welded to the grid immediately after the installation of all sections. At the final stage of the described works, fences are treated with a special compound that protects them from corrosion. In this case, special attention is paid to the areas of welding, which are carefully cleaned from scale, and then painted.

As an alternative to the above welded structure, you can choose a sectional metal fence from purchased items, purchased in finished form and mounted in accordance with the instructions attached to the kit.
