General specification to be used in conjunction with Britmet Tileform 0.9mm Pantile 2000 roofing sheets.

Listed in order of fixing

HANDLING AND STORAGE
Materials should be unloaded as close as possible to the building where they are to be installed. On site, packs should be stored on a firm, dry base away from the possibility of damage.

Sheeting packs should be laid on pallets or bearers to allow ground clearance. Bearers at least 100mm x 50mm should be arranged at the same centres under each pack, which must not exceed 2 packs high and must slope sufficiently to allow any rainwater which penetrates to drain away. A tarpaulin should cover the stacks not touching the surface of the sheets, this allows for circulation of air.

To prevent damage to the coating on installation, the sheets must be lifted not dragged from the pack. Damage to the surface coating can be repaired with touch up paint. (Supplied by Britmet Tileform Ltd.)
