How to install wood plastic composite outdoor Pergola ?
Installation materials: wood plastic materials (Post, beams, blades), steel Metal base, galvanized square tube, expansion bolts, screws, connectors, etc.
Before installation the WPC pergola, must be in accordance with the pre-design requirements and site construction conditions to draw drawings and do a good job of installation planning steps.
Before performing the installation steps, ensure that the concrete base is smooth and the thickness can meet the installation and construction requirements.
1: Fix WPC post base
Fix the post base to concrete with expansion screws,and insert
into the post skirt.
When make the steel post base, the thickness of the steel plate of the base shall be ≥5mm, and the welded galvanized steel tube wall shall be ≥1.5mm.
2: Fix the post on the metal base
When installing the wood plastic post, all the posts on the same straight line must meet the design span requirements.
3: Fix WPC Beam
Insert the 200 * 80mm or 180*80mm Crossbeam into the slotted post and adjust the length before and after.
A steel tube should be inserted into all the beams of the WPC Pergola. The diameter of the steel tube is slightly smaller 1-2mm than the empty size of the WPC beam.After fixing the WPC beam, connect the galvanized tube to the wpc beam with 2 stainless steel drill screw where the Place on the beam is not noticeable.
Use Φ10mm twist drill to make a pair of perforations,fix the post and Crossbeam with M10 * 220mm stainless steel screw.

5:Fix the top material with beam
The horizontal span of the pergola determines the length of the wpc blade Above the Pergola.
The length of the WPC blade should be 100-250mm longer than each end of the transverse span between Posts.When the blade span of WPC Pergola is ≤2 meters, the blade can be fixed directly on the beam of Pergola.
When the blade span of Pergola is >2 meters , galvanized tube shall be inserted inside the wpc blade to prevent the wpc blade from sagging and deformation;
6: L-shape clip to fix the top material with the beam

The installation of the WPC Pergola is relatively simple, because the wood plastic material has its own characteristics, so it does not need very complex installation and construction technology.However, the wrong installation and construction method will inevitably lead to the overall structure of the wpc pergola is unstable, and the appearance loses the aesthetic feeling.Therefore, in the wood plastic Pergola installation, to choose as far as possible have rich installation experience, more professional wood plastic material construction personnel to complete the installation.
