This gives good protection in most exposed internal environments. Run off from, or contact with, materials which are incompatible with zinc should be avoided.
HANDLING AND STORAGE
Ceiling Battens must be kept dry during storage as water present between close stacked sections will cause premature corrosion. If they become wet they should be separated and stacked openly to allow for ventilation to dry the surface.
Ceiling Battens are available in long run lengths up to 12 metres, depending on the available transport and handling facilities. Stock lengths may be available from your local stockist.
Cutting is preferably done by shear or hacksaw. When using abrasive disc blades care must be taken to ensure the swarf produced does not affect other materials and the burred edge should be cleaned off at the completion of cutting.
