Transport, Storage & Handling

Stacking & Storage

Store in a shaded, dry and level area on 5 timber bases 500mm apart.
Pallets should be transported using a forklift.
If the products will be stored for any length of time move to well ventilated area and/or remove plastic shrink wrapping to prevent build up of condensation.



Lifting and Lowering Planks

Lift the planks from the stack in an upright position and be careful not to damage ends/edge when lifting and lowering planks.

Carry the planks with another worker/colleague if needed, holding one end each, with the plank in an upright position to avoid unnecessary flexing of the plank.
 Handling & Carrying SHERA Floor Plank

SHERA Floor Plank should be handled and carried correctly in order to avoid damage to the painted surfaces and to the edges and corners of the planks.

Planks should be carried in an upright position to avoid flexing.

Share the load with another worker/colleague if needed, holding one end each with the plank in an upright position.

Floor Planks should not be installed or painted when they are damp or wet.


General Maintenance & Care

Cleaning

SHERA Floor Planks can be cleaned using warm water and soap with a soft sponge. Cleaning products that contain acid should not be used.


Drainage
Check the application drainage system and water discharge outlets to ensure continuous water discharge beneath the decking system.
Ensure gaps between decking planks are free from mud, sand or leaves or any other source of blockage that may hinder correct drainage.

Mould
Use a wet cloth or soft brush to remove any mould that may have started growing on the decking planks if your decking has been exposed to moisture for a prolonged period.

Decking Furniture

Care should be taken when moving furniture, plant pots or other heavy objects to prevent scratching the plank surface.


Decking Plants
Use plant pot trays with any decking plants in order to prevent permanent exposure to water/damp/mud.


Weeds

If you are installing your decking frame in a garden we recommend using a weed blanket underneath the decking in order to prevent weed growth underneath the decking.
