Transport, storage and handling Panel storage Panels should be stored under cover to prevent accumulation of dirt and condensation. Otherwise store at an angle on cross bearers and cover to allow air circulation. Unpacking panels Caution Exercise care when opening packages stored at an angle. There is a risk of panels sliding sideways and/or in the direction of slope. When removing packaging from the panels with a knife, take care not to scratch the painted surface of the panels.
