What are the handling indications for the AQUAPANEL® Cement Boards?

Handling indications on how to manipulate for a top result.

Always carry the board’s upright, or use board rollers. Handle with forklift or crane as palette goods. Take care not to damage corners and edges when setting the boards down. Place boards down on their long edge before laying them flat.

Ensure that the base is strong enough to support the boards and the pallet with the board.

Protect boards from moisture and weathering before installing. Boards, which have become damp, must be dried on both sides on a flat surface prior to fitting. Before installing, condition the boards to the ambient temperature and humidity.
