1.04 Delivery, Storage and Handling
A. Do not deliver or install equipment until the following conditions have been met:
1. Windows and doors are installed and the building is secure and weather tight. The space should
be heated to at least 40°F.
2. Ceiling, overhead ductwork, and lighting are installed.
3. All painting is completed and floor finish is installed.
4. Polypropylene fume hoods and related materials require the interior building temperature not
to exceed 90°F to avoid undue structural fatigue and damage.
B. Protect finished surfaces from soiling or damage during handling and installation. The equipment comes
with a protective film that should be left in place while handling, and then removed ONLY where pieces
are mated during installation.
C. When ambient temperatures are below -20°F, careful handling is required to prevent polypropylene
from cracking at the seams.
