The gate posts for vinyl privacy fences are just a hollow vinyl post. You have to add an aluminum I Beam to the center of it to help reinforce its form and structure. The post holes need to be dug down to 30″. Once you get the post holes dug,put some concrete in the holes. Then insert the post. Level up the post and add more concrete until you are just about 3″ below the ground. Use a bar to poke at the concrete as you insert it into the hole to help make sure it’s getting in there really good and even. The posts will ideally have time to set in the concrete for 24 hours before hanging anything on them like gates.
When installing the regular part of the fence,start at the high point of the yard. It makes it much easier to go downhill with the fence installation rather than uphill. The posts for the fence will be different than the posts for the gate. You’ll put a piece of pressure treated wood in the bottom of the fence post to provide it some extra reinforcement. But,the pressure treated wood should not interfere with the holes in the post where the fence panels will be mounted. When placing your post into the hole in the ground,be sure the bottom hole in the post remains above grade before adding the concrete to the hole. Add about a foot of concrete into the hole and then finish it off with the dirt you originally pulled out to make the hole.
Once you install your first post,you can run a string line along the entire length of where the rest of the fence will be installed. Then,dig all of the holes you need for the privacy fence installation. Prep everything for installing the posts quickly. Once the first post is installed,you are ready to put in a fence panel.
Insert the panel ends into the fence post holes. Then,put in a screw at the top and the bottom of each panel to hold it securely to the post. Once you put in the first panel,you are immediately ready to install the next post. Bring the post over and insert it into the hole and insert the other end of the fence panel into the post holes simultaneously. Check your post height in preparation of the next panel. Make sure it’s all level. Then add the concrete to the hole to secure the post.
Simply repeat this process until all the panels and fence posts have been installed.
Some things to consider about your vinyl fence are that some people will say that they are flimsy. But,not all vinyl fence material is created equal. High quality vinyl fences will incorporate aluminum I Beams to prevent the panels and frames from sagging and bowing. And,high quality vinyl fences will also use pressure treated 6 x 6″ wood in the bottom of each fence post. The really nice thing about a vinyl privacy fence is that you will not have to paint it. They should last for a very long time. A saying in the industry is ‘vinyl is final’.
There you have itÃ¢Â€Â¦ enjoy your new vinyl privacy fence! IF doing this yourself is not something you wish to do,try contacting your local fence installation company likeAll American Fence to install your vinyl privacy fence for you.
If you are you planning to buy a laser engraver for business purposes and therefore wish to learn more about how laser cutting machinery operates then this post will be of some help? First,before you go off an purchase anything look at reviews of the company including what past owners are saying. Here is a review of Camfive laser that I found that was surprising. Don’t know if it is true but you can usually get a general consensus about a laser company by looking at different review or forum sites.
As far as Laser engraving or laser marking the difference between the two is the depth that the laser burns into the material. And you don’t need an expensive industrial laser since even a small laser like one described at this website: http://hobbylasercutter.com will engrave wood and cut thin wood quiet easily. More dwell time will get more into engraving and even cutting. Same is true with power. The more power will obliterate or burn the material more. Laser engraving like the other laser procedures uses also a laser beam in order to manipulate the surface of objects. The laser engraving process is commonly used to create one or more images on a particular material,which may be noticed at eye level. During the process,high heat that is created by the laser vaporizes the matter therefore exposing cavities that are ideal in forming the final image.
How a Laser Engraver Works
The process of laser engraving is actually pretty quick since the material of concern does not need to be pinned down to the work platform like you would with a CNC laser machine. It is literally focused light that is working into the material. The depth of the engraving present in the material is managed by the power or dwell time over the material.
During the laser engraving process,the surface of the material is burned or even melted first and vaporized by that heat being produced by laser beam through a process referred as material removal. More power will speed up the process.
So,this is how the laser burns material to either mark,engrave,or cut through it.
