Pantile 2000 General Specification

Handling and Storage:
Materials should be unloaded as close as possible to the building where they are going 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. 100mm x 50mm Bearers should be arranged at the same centres under each pack and must not exceed 2 packs high. They must slope sufficiently to allow any rainwater that may gather to drain away. A tarpaulin sheet should cover the stacks, not touching the surface of the sheets, which will allow for the circulation of air.
To prevent damage to the coating on installation, the sheets must be lifted and not dragged from the pack. Damage to the surface coating can be repaired with touch up paint. (Supplied by Britmet.)
