Generally , panels ready for installation are supplied in packages on pallets using trucks. Such pallets normally have a max. weight of 3000kg, to take account of available hoists. When packages are stacked, the wooden pallets must be placed one above the other.
The materials should be transported so that they remain dry.
For panel lengths of more than 20m, special approval is required for road transport. The packages must be checked on their arrival on site. Any complaints and any evidence of damage must be immediately notified to the supplier and marked on the shipping documents. All freight units must be provided with a tag giving the following information:
- Date of production
- Designation of the panel
- Mark of conformity
- Designation of the corrosion protection system
- Nominal layer thickness of additional organic coating
