STORAGE

To ensure that your delivered pipe products do not become damaged during job site storage, follow these simple guidelines:

 

  • Non-palletized pipe may be temporarily stockpiled on a flat, clear area.
  • Use securing timbers (or blocks) to ensure the stockpile does not collapse.
  • Failure to block pipe may result in stack collapsing, pipe damage, or personal injury.
  • Stack pipe no higher than approximately (1.8m).
  • While supporting lengths of pipe evenly, alternate bells for each row of pipe.
  • To prevent damage to the bell or spigot when moving pipe sections, do not drag or strike pipe ends against anything.

The following figures illustrate the one-way stacking method, with sleeve alternation, and the two-way stacking method, also with sleeve alternation.
