Site storage advice for steel sheets

Peter Wragge Supplies thrives on providing customers with top of the range building materials. However, that’s not all we do here. We also educate people on the subject of care in handling profiled steel sheets. If you are not too confident about dealing with the sheeting, you would most certainly benefit from taking our advice.

Steel sheet building products have become very popular during the last two decades. As with every other kind of construction medium though, a bit of maintenance and care pays off in terms of repair costs and longevity. What we’re going to do is talk about the ways in which you should be treating your own materials.

Keep storage times down

With site storage, you need to keep the total time down to a minimum. The best way to do this would be installing your goods as soon as possible following their arrival. With excellent planning, you can utilise them on a first-out basis. If you cannot avoid storing your sheets for prolonged periods, the ideal storage location would be under-roof, within a well-ventilated, dry, and cool area.

Cover the sheets

Outside storage isn’t the model solution, but it is sometimes unavoidable. You should use decent covers that you’ve firmly anchored and loosely shrouded over sheets to stop the wind blowing them off. If you can, don’t store the products in direct sunlight and keep them away from chemically aggressive substances, cement, salt, or anything else capable of contaminating them.

At Peter Wragge Supplies, we have created a page on our website dedicated to care in handling profiled steel sheets. We ourselves also practice great care whilst handling our products, as we want you to get the most out of them.

If you would like additional information about our merchandise, feel free to contact us anytime. Whatever the application you have in mind we can offer reliable materials. We are confident you’ll rate them highly, especially if you follow our advice and store them safely.
