Please note that the colours shown are representative only and, whilst every effort will be made to ensure consistency, the finishes we provide may vary slightly between items and batches.

  • Always wear correct PPE when handling or working with building materials.
  • Always fasten each panel with three lines of fixing to overcome the characteristic warping of the panels after machining.

  • Always store the panels in a dry environment
  • Never lean up against the wall; always ensure they are stored flat with consistent support throughout the panel.
  • Always carry vertically on their edges, never flat.
  • Always protect decorative faces during storage or handling
  • Observe safe working practice and manual handling procedures.
