To Refine the opening in front of the stairs to block the entrance to the landing or for other tasks, you can install a bulkhead with a honeycomb grille. She looks very dignified and neat, from which it is difficult to believe that it can be cooked with his own hands from a shaped tube by conventional welding machine.
Tools and materials:
- profile pipe 40×60 mm;
- profile 40×40 mm;
- the filler metal;
- welding machine;
The process of making partition
Since the partition wall is composed of complex geometric shapes, before its fabrication need to do accurate planning. For this you need to calculate the height and width held in her opening, and its location on the bulkhead.
The results of calculations of welded frame partitions. To do this, use pipe 40×60 mm.
Of it cut into billets and steel strips can be about 45 degrees.
This will make a neat closed outer angle when welding at a right angle. The underside of the frame must be interrupted by the opening, so it will consist of two lengths of pipe, otherwise you will get the threshold. To the frame to weld smoothly, the workpiece needs to be put on 2 long pipe exposed in a single plane, and of course to enjoy a square.
The resulting seams should be thoroughly abraded, potholes repaired and quick-dry plaster, and after drying again polished.
Next, the most responsible and difficult. You need to calculate the size of the hexagonal honeycomb to fill the partition. Used for the manufacture of pipe 40×40 mm. the Calculated workpiece should be cut in a special way. To do this, cut along one wall is at 45 degrees, then from the extreme point at the other wall again at 45 degrees, but with the opposite bias, and so on. Such beveled ends should be on all sides of each workpiece. Moreover, it is important that the angles on one edge of the workpiece had a mirror and at a second end.
Then docking of the workpiece, it is necessary to weld them together.
This form will allow the ends to the bars with honeycomb. The welding is performed on a flat surface. You just need to put the electrode point at the intersection of three blanks.
Solid seam is required. Making a lattice it must weld it in the frame partition. In the gaps between the honeycomb and the frame are welded the cut pieces of pipe to form a “polosaty” and completely cover the voids.
Next you need to fluff putty joints SOT. To this end, it is rubbed with a finger. Putty will close nezavisne gaps. She then polished, the partition wall is primed and painted.
The finished result exceeds all expectations:
