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:
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).
Steel profile pipes
Successful construction of a welded fence from metal profile is impossible without the use of the following materials and special tools:
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.
Concreting the columns
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:
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.
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.
