CUTTING



CUTTING SHERA DECKING

SHERA decking can be cut as required using a normal electric power saw with a diamond blade. We always recommend wearing full PPE, including using a face mask to avoid inhaling dust, whilst cutting SHERA decking.

 

Tip: before cutting SHERA decking use paper masking tape along the planned cut line to avoid accidental chipping of the edges of the boards due to damaged or substandard cutting blades.

STACKING AND STORAGE

Store in a shaded, dry and level area. Pallets should be transported using a forklift.

LIFTING AND LOWERING BOARDS

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

Carry the boards with another colleague if needed, holding one end each, with the board in an upright position to avoid unnecessary flexing of the board.

HANDLING AND CARRYING SHERA BOARDS

SHERA deck boards should be handled and carried correctly in order to avoid damage to the painted surfaces and to the edges and corners of the boards.

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

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

Do not install and /or paint boards when they are damp or wet.
