Stamp the area of every terminal post (corner, end and gateposts are called terminal posts) with a stake. While deciding the places of gateposts, recollect that leeway for pivots, hooks, and so on., is incorporated into the recorded opening width of the entryway. In this manner, on the off chance that you requested a door for a 36-inch opening, the post dividing ought to be precisely 36 inches, inside post face to inside post confront.
Setting Terminal Posts
Terminal posts for steel fence.
Burrow the terminal postholes around 8 creeps in width and 30 inches profound, with slanting sides (Fig. 2). The correct breadth and profundity will be dictated by neighborhood climate and soil conditions.
With colored pencil or chalk, stamp the ground line on the posts. The stature, above level ground, of the terminal posts will rise to the tallness of the fence texture in addition to 2 inches.
Focus the terminal posts in the gaps. Ensure the posts are plumb and set at the right tallness. (Colored pencil stamp ought to be at ground level.) Encompass the posts with cement in a persistent pour. Trowel complete around the presents and slant descending on direct water away.

Introducing Top Rails to Posts
Introducing Pressure Wire (Discretionary)
Wrap the pressure wire once around the base rail end-band carriage jolt. Utilizing pincers, wind a few times to secure (Fig. 12). Strain wire ought to keep running along an indistinguishable side of the posts from the texture. Apply strain wire cuts close to 24 inches separated or as required for securing the wire to the steel texture.
Hanging Wall Texture
Beginning at a terminal post, unroll the steel texture on the ground along the outside of the fence line to the following terminal post. Slide a strain bar through the principal line of steel jewels. Secure uniformly dispersed strain groups (as of now on the post) to the pressure bar texture mix utilizing 5/16-inch-by-1-1/4-inch carriage jolts with heads to the outside of the fence (Figs. 13 and 14).
Stroll along the texture and stand it up against the fence outline, taking out the slack as you go. Freely join the texture to the top rail with a couple fence binds to hold it set up. Isolate enough texture from the move to traverse the opening between the terminal posts.
To expel overabundance texture:
Expel the overabundance texture with forceps by opening the top and base circles (knuckles) of a solitary strand of wire at the coveted purpose of partition. Loosen up the strand up through the connections until the texture falls to pieces (Figs. 15 and 16).
To join areas of texture:
Join areas of the steel texture together utilizing a solitary strand of wire, expelled from the finish of the texture. Join the two segments by winding the free strand down, corkscrew style, through the end joins. Join and fix the knuckles at the top and the base to secure.
NOTE: Before areas can be grafted, a moment strand may must be evacuated to give a legitimate work.
Extending Wall Texture
Introducing Wall Ties
Affix the texture safely with fence ties dispersed roughly 24 inches separated along the top rail and 12 inches separated on each line post (Fig 19). At last, safely fix the nuts on all rail end groups and pressure groups.
Hanging the Door
Hanging the door.
A comparative establishment methodology is utilized on both single-swing and twofold swing doors (Figs. 20 and 21).
Apply gatepost pivots to the gatepost around 8 crawls from the top and the base of the gatepost with the top-pivot bind indicating and the base pivot stick indicating up. This will keep the door from being expelled or from dropping off. Fix all jolts safely.
Apply entryway outline pivots to the door outline. Freely affix the jolts so they can be effortlessly balanced on the door outline. Hang the gate(s) set up so that the base of the door has roughly 2 crawls of ground freedom. Fix the jolts on the base casing pivot to start with, and afterward change and fix the jolts safely at the top.
Position the entryway fork lock at a helpful tallness. Fix all jolts safely.
NOTE: Change the lock get together immediately swing door to the right tallness and fix all jolts safely (Fig. 21).
