During transport it is essential to use pallets of sufficient size to support the whole of the panel area.
Pallets must be strong and stable enough to support their load without bending or buckling. When
transporting stacks of panels with mechanical handling vehicles, pallets of adequate size and rigidity
should be used. The surface of each panel must be free from debris, grit or foreign bodies, as they can
become embedded under the weight of the stack resulting in damage to the surface. Stacked panels
must be made secure against slipping.
When loading and unloading, panels should be lifted, not slid. Abrasion between decorative faces
should be avoided.
