Handling and Installation:
When handling any concrete product, it is important to remember that, as concrete is a heavy and somewhat brittle material, bumps or shock loads of any description are liable to damage the product. This is usually applicable to the sharp corners around the joints. Each unit has two holes on either side of the unit that is used for handling and installation. These holes also provide ventilation for the equipment inside.
