ID:	597438 sorry if I disturb you, I should make a perimeter metal fence, like a fence enclosure, like a shack made of galvanized corrugated sheet, the measurements would be 1.80 meters high, 13 meters long, I should make the frame on which to screw the sheet metal panels, therefore I should bury some poles on which to weld the crossbars, any idea?

      I am all for burying poles. Either treated wood or metal is up to you. Myself if i used metal make sure its galvanized because where i live it won't last long in the ground...Bob

        sorry if I have disturbed you with my question, the biggest problem for me is to size the support and fixing frame or uprights and crossbars poles, you know well, you who are my masters if strong wind comes, the structure becomes a sail and the take away the wind like a kite, what do you suggest ?, for the poles I had thought of putting pieces of plastic plumbing tube underneath, to isolate the metal from the dampness and the condensation of the ground like a protective sheath, do you think?

          Metal has been sunk in the ground for many moons. Paint it, powder coat it or otherwise prep it properly and it'll last until the zombie apocalypse, then it won't matter. If you're that worried about it, use concrete mounts and sink them in there like a light pole base. Seems like excessive over-engineering to me, but it would be fun to do.

          Or use treated wood.

            it is near the sea about 500 meters therefore the air is full of salt, I must protect the structure well otherwise it rots, at the first gust of wind it takes off and flies like a glider, sooner or later the wood rots, the iron rusts but more slowly especially tubes an engineer had suggested me profiles, what can you suggest me? would you have some drawing or photos to get inspiration from? thanks again for your cooperation

              So rather than listen to an engineer you would rather take advise from 6 guys from the internet that never lived by the sea. Perfect. Your first pics looked good. Pic a style and "fly" with it. No pun intended...

                Pour a concrete wall and never look back. It will be more expensive but you will be much happier in years to come.
                Maybe pour a footing and lay a block wall. Think hurricane.

                  Anything that someone suggests to you is going to be a shot in the dark, a guess or SWAG as "they" say. Nobody really has any idea of what you're looking for, commercial, residential, doggy park style, etc. except, of course, that it'll be near the ocean. Everything eventually self destructs, so I'm not really sure on how long you think your fence will live. A storm of a certain size will even take out the great wall of China. If oxidation is your nightmare, make it out of reinforced concrete.

                      thanks for the right suggestions, it's not that I don't trust the advice of a technician, maybe among you utenci friends, there is some friend who builds metal carpentry so he has practical experience made on site on the battlefield and not theoretical on books or in a technical study, I believe, I would not like to seem presumptuous, that in order to carry out a decent job the practice and the theory must meet and merge together, in my part it is said the "practice does grammar" or the experience constitutes foundation for the theory's experiences .. am I wrong?

                        I'm not really sure man, I think there is something lost in translation. But, I'm all for building the wall!

                        ...like the one fusionking recommended too.

                          the masonry wall is expensive and it takes the masons and concrete workers and the material, time and money that I do not have with $ 400 of money and I realize the profiles and sheets alone with my tools now in the summer as a hobby, thanks anyway for the right suggestions

                            With the types of walls you are putting up to look at, they would cost just as much as a block wall if you did it yourself. $400.00 is a joke!!
                            I see structures made for inland not close to the ocean shoreline. When I imagine a block wall I imagine blocks stacked in such a way that there are large holes for wind and water to blow through. Those large thin sheets of metal will bend those poles until they rip off and fly away. Do you look directly at the ocean where this will be??
                            As for the types of people here.....yes, there are more than a few old grumpy journeyman welders and fabricators.
                            I only came here so I could learn how to type and spell correctly.

                              Are you posting pictures of other fences in your area? That last one, especially, looks like it's a goner in a good wind.

                              Find a fence in your area that's been there a while and in a style you like and can do.
