Transport and Storage
PVC-U pipes, due to their considerable resistance to wear and impact and low weight, enable uncomplicated transport and storage procedures and practically do not require special protective measures. Nevertheless, careful handling is required, as attention must be paid to sharp objects and edges that can permanently damage the pipe, so transport vehicles and storage areas must be cleaned of sharp objects and sharp edges protected. Greater attention should also be paid to the transport of pipes at temperatures below 5 ° C, when PVC pipes become less resistant to shocks.
The pipes should be folded along their entire length and should be protected against slipping. The loading height should not exceed one meter. In the case of palletized pipes and multi-story storage, it is necessary to ensure that the wooden frames of one pallet rest on the wooden frames of the pallet below it (wood on wood).
When loading or unloading, the pipe must not be pulled over sharp edges or on the ground.

The material from which the pipes are made is UV stabilized, but we recommend that the pipes be stored unprotected from the weather for a maximum of one year. In case of prolonged storage, the pipes must be protected from sunbeams.
