RAY-CORE SIPs ® DELIVERY, HANDLING & STORAGE
Your RAY-CORE SIPs Panels Are On Their Way!
RAY-CORE SIPs ® Delivery
RAYCORE Structural Insulated Panels ® SIPs are an investment in the future of your new home. For best performance and results you will want to care for the panels before, during and after installation.
Most likely the panels will be delivered by common carrier on a large semi truck, either a box trailer or flatbed trailer. It will be necessary for someone to be onsite when the panels are delivered to inspect, sign for and unload the shipment.
It is very important that prior to shipment that RAYCORE is provided with an accurate delivery address and a phone number to reach the supervisor onsite the day of delivery. You will want to make sure that a large semi truck can get into the site, otherwise you will need to make arrangements to deliver the panels offsite and then move them to the jobsite.
Delivery, Unloading and Handling Your RAY-CORE SIPs ®
It is advised that when possible, a forklift with fork extensions and an operator be available. If this is not possible, the panels can be unloaded by hand. In this case, a sufficient crew of minimum of 3 to 5 workers will be required to do this quickly and efficiently. Truck drivers will not assist with the unloading of the panels and if held too long can charge extra. To help things go smoothly, detailed shipping delivery receipt instructions will be emailed at the time the panels are shipped. It is important that you review this information prior to delivery and follow the instructions carefully. This will make your panel delivery experience a positive one and get you on your way to building with your new RAYCORE Structural Insulated Panels ®.
Storage Of Your RAY-CORE SIPs ®
Upon receipt, store the panels in a protected area and elevated to prevent ground contact. Cover to prevent excessive exposure to sunlight, moisture and the elements. Stack panels on “stickers” to hold the panels up off the ground. Do not allow the panels to be stored in an unsupported manner. Improper storage may cause materials damage or decomposition and possible tolerance problems in the field.
After Installation Of Your SIPs
After installation of your RAY-CORE SIPs ®, cover external surfaces of the panels with appropriate exterior siding or finishes and/or roofing materials as soon as is possible to keep the panels dry and protected from excessive sunlight or moisture. RAY-CORE SIPs ® Panels are not to be considered a permanent exterior finish. Interior surfaces should be finished with a minimum 15-minute thermal barrier, such as 1/2” gypsum wallboard or other approved materials as required by local code.
