Behind The Curtains
The procedure begins by taking a blank, uncut PVC profile, such as a pocket rail, to the frame’s size, then cutting each end to a 45 degree angle. For vinyl welded gate frames, a 2′′ x 6′′ pocket rail is employed. Once the components have been cut to size, they are placed in the welding machine, which holds them in place, melts the edges with hot plates, and then pushes them together to form an extraordinarily strong frame.
These frames, which can be created to any custom size up to 16 feet long and attached to a steel framework, may be made to any bespoke size.
Hot Air Welded
To begin with our vinyl gates welding process, we first need to make sure the conditions for the manufacturing process are optimal. The welder has to be in a dry, clean atmosphere. It should be kept away from draughts, which might cause the heater plate to cool, resulting in a poor weld quality.
By pushing compressed air across electrical heat sources, hot air welders produce the heat necessary for welding. The generated hot air is transferred to the welding spot, melting the thermoplastics’ surface. As the molecules between the two surfaces intermingle and cool, pressure is applied, and a weld for your premium vinyl fence forms.
Thermoplastic materials with a thickness of 1.5 mm (1/16″) or greater are commonly utilized for hot air welding. Welders that can be used on the go are available. As a result, hot-air welders can make welds in a variety of forms, including curves. It’s great for when the weld width has to alter often or when the welding process necessitates repeated beginning and stopping.
VInyl Fence Kits
These kits consist of tiny panels that are put together in such a way that they function as a gate. A post, similar to a fence panel, is on either side of these gates. To hold the rails to the posts, they are either screwed or riveted in place. In severe scenarios, this type of gate has all of the same structural flaws as a bracketed vinyl fence panel, and if you reside in an HVHZ zone, you can be sure that this gate will not endure through even a category 1 hurricane.

The benefit of PVC welding over typical gates manufacturing processes is that the gate’s frame becomes a single, homogeneous product. These welds are extremely robust and can be created at a low cost since they are literally melted and forced together.
