Although FireCrunch does not degrade in water it should not be left out in the rain as there will be a low % of HYDRATION IE, absorption of water. If this does happen the board will have to be dried out before use… drying out the board will not cause warping or any loss of integrity.
FireCrunch should always be stored flat in a dry undercover space on a horizontal pallet or on supports spaced at 450mm centres. It should not be stored laid directly on the ground.
AND DO NOT LEAVE THE BOARD HANGING OVER THE PALLET EDGES OR GLUTS OVER 450MM IT MUST BE SUPPORTED FLAT as all time prior to use.
Always handle with at least one person at each end of the board. With hands apart, lift the board and tilt to prevent sagging. (See data sheet for more information).
