Metal Panel Delivery Shipping and Storage
How to Ship and Store Your Painted Metal Panels
- Always inspect the shipment upon delivery. Check for damage and verify material quantities against the shipping list. Note any damaged material or shortages at the time of delivery.
- Handle panel bundles and individual panels with care to avoid damage. Longer bundles and panels may require two or more “pick points” properly spaced to avoid damage that can result from buckling and/or bending of the panels.
- Wear clean, non-marking, soft-soled shoes when walking on the panels to avoid shoe marks or damage to the finish. Step only in the flat area of the panels.
- Store the panels and other materials in a dry, well-ventilated area, away from traffic. Elevate one end of the bundle so that any moisture that may have accumulated during shipping can run off. Be sure that air will be able to circulate freely around the bundles to avoid the buildup of moisture. Never store materials in direct contact with the ground. Bundled metal roofing must be covered with a breathable tarp (do not use plastic) and stored on a slant to permit drainage.
