How to fit Framework consisting of an ornamental design made of strips of wood or metal. A framework of crossed wood or metal strips. into a frame
The lattice frame usually consists of uprights (posts) and top and bottom plates.
The uprights, in a lot of cases are posts either concreted into the ground or bolted to another structure such as a A flat floored roofless area adjoining a house. Timber deck: An outside floor structure comprising of posts, bearers, joists and decking boards. or retaining wall.
An upright may be a see PILE for a fence, a A structure with open wood-framed roofs, often latticed and supported by regularly spaced posts or columns, and covered by climbing plants such as vines or roses, shading a walk or passageway. Pergolas are distinguished from “arbors,” which are less extensive in extent and structure., an A shelter of vines or branches or of latticework covered with climbing shrubs or vines. A walk through Garden structure that can support plants and generally complements the landscape., a screen, among other things. Usually a post is either 100×100 (4×4) or larger in size and can be either smooth (Surfaced; planed; smooth; even surface; gauged.) or rough (rough Rough sawn; Not gauged, planed or dressed.).
The plates are the completion of the lattice frame and run Parallel to the horizon, flat, level. between the posts, one at the top (The top horizontal framing member of the wall.) and one at the bottom (The bottom horizontal framing member of the wall.).
The plates are usually 100×50 (2×4) or larger . The plates can be a bigger size especially if the The horizontal distance between supporting structures. is greater than 1800mm (6ft) although it is not advisable to have a lattice frame section spanning more than 1800mm (6ft).
Fitting the Lattice:
Lattice A sheet that forms a distinct flat and rectangular section or component. A transparent panel used to fill a framed section of a window. can be cut to order or purchased in ready made panels in sizes such as 600mm (2ft) x 2400mm (8ft) or 1200mm (4ft) x 2400mm (8ft).
Use natural decay resistant or Pressure treated. Refers to lumber that is treated in such a way that the sealer is forced into the pores of the wood. Refers to lumber pressure sprayed with chemicals to lengthen its life expectancy for outside use or inground applications. Timber, lumber. The hard fibrous lignified substance under the bark of trees and Covered with a protective coating of zinc. nails.
Measuring the lattice
Measure between the top and A middle horizontal support piece of wood. and between the two posts in each section and deduct 5mm (1/4″) from the measurement to allow for play. For example, if the exact measured size of a particular section is 2200mm (88″) wide x 250mm (10″) high, then the lattice size for that section would need to be 2195mm (87 3/4″) wide x 245mm (9 3/4″) high.
Measure the same way in every section and order the lattice of your selected profile or purchase pre-made panels and cut to suit.
Fitting the Lattice
The objective is to sandwich the lattice between two pieces of wood (stops) that are fixed to the posts and rails.
25mm x 25mm (1″x1″) square stops are used in this example.
(1) Firstly, To secure with nails or screws. the stops around the inside of the frame to one side only.
(2) Insert the lattice.
(3) Fix the stops against the lattice on the other side (see drawing).
