Safety and Storage

Storage

The sheeting should always be stored in a dry and fire safe area. Do not store heavy materials on top of sheets as they may fracture.

Recycling and disposal 

Fiberglass sheeting is not recyclable and should be disposed of in a land fill. Do not incinerate fiberglass off-cuts as burning produces acrid smoke and noxious, toxic fumes.

Non-trafficable

Ampelite translucent sheeting is a non-trafficable material. Sheets should be handled with care to avoid damage to the surface coating (polyester film). Guarantees will not apply to sheeting that has been damaged in handling, or mechanical damage as a result of foot traffic.
