The metal sheet fence calculator is designed to calculate the amount of materials required for the construction of an enclosing structure consisting of posts, logs and metal sheets of profiled flooring.

The calculation can be performed both for the entire perimeter and for each individual side. To do this, you need to specify the length of only the calculated side. The depth of the hole will be calculated automatically, depending on the height of the fence. Since the metal sheet has a high "windage" in contrast to the picket fence and mesh fences, their fastening must be carried out especially carefully to counteract wind loads. It is also desirable to use roofing screws for fastening, with a special rubber spacer, to prevent the appearance of rust in the attachment points.

In strongly heaving soils, such as clay, it is recommended to mount the posts by the method of backfilling, in order to avoid squeezing the concrete base out of the soil, or to increase the depth of installation of the posts below the depth of freezing of the soil.

The default cost calculation is specified for example, for an accurate calculation, enter the actual cost of materials in your region.

A drawing in two projections is attached to the calculation, for a visual display of the placement of posts along the entire length of the fence side with the calculation of a uniform installation step.

The following is a complete list of calculations performed with a brief description of each item.

## General information on the results of calculations

• The total length of the fence
• - is the sum of all sides of the fence taken into account in the calculation
• The total area of the fence
• - is the area of the outside of the fence
• The length of the post
• - is the minimum length of the post at the selected fence height
• Number of posts
• - total number of posts for the entire length
• Uniform pitch of the posts
• – uniform distribution of the posts along the length of each side taken into account
• Number of logs
• - the total number of logs of the selected length in pieces
• Number of metal sheet
• - the total number of sheets of profiled flooring taking into account overlap in pieces
• Number of roofing screws
• – approximate number of screws for fixing sheets of corrugated board to the logs
• The volume of the material for butting
• - is the volume of the material for filling the posts in the wells when fixing by the method of backfilling
