Safety, Handling and Storage Instructions



Safety rules as per current legislation and work practices as described in General Installation Guidelines must be observed when working with the product.

Nutec Flat Sheets as manufactured are made without asbestos fibres, it is nevertheless recommended that when working with the product, tools that create excessive dust should not be used. Ordinary carpenters’ tools can be used effectively.


Nutec Flat Sheets are cement-based and may be damaged under excessively high shock loads. Reasonable care should therefore be taken to ensure that the products are not dropped or subjected to rough handling.


Nutec Flat Sheets should not be exposed to the elements and under cover storage is recommended. A smooth level under cover area should therefore be made available where they can be stacked safely. Nutec Flat Sheets should be stacked clear off the ground on suitable timber supports at maximum 400 mm centres and the edges and corners protected against possible damage. Where under cover storage is not available, the stacked product should be covered to avoid it becoming soaked with water. Soaked boards will be difficult to handle and should be allowed to dry out before use.
