1.08 Products delivery & Storage and Handling:
a.) All product material must be protected from direct external
conditions either through temporary or permanent provisions.
Ideal conditions for protection consist of a shaded (non direct
sun exposure), cool, dry locations. External temperature shall
remain above the 40º F (4ºC).
b.) All architectural profiles are professional packaged
prior to the shipment from our factory. Delivery of the architectural
materials shall remain in the original package, unopened with
the destination labels intact until final delivery to the
c.) Material Safety Data sheets for adhesives and basecoats
should be made readily available.
d.) When transporting the profiles on a projects site. The
foam back should face away while the base coated profile faces
inward towards the person for whom is carrying the object.
Never pick up a molding in a flat position with the EPS foam
face or base coated face facing down towards the floor. The
profiles will not disperse the weight evenly across the 8’
e.) Buckling, cracking or breakage may be avoided by carrying
the profiles in a correct position, hands spread evenly apart
across the 8’ span. Ideally 2’-6” from the
ends on either side. Always remember to support the entire
length. Hold the profile secure straight while moving. The
carrier shall attempt to limit the stress or drastic flexural
changes will in motion. Never pick up a profile from the end
or middle of the pieces, this causes undue stress on the profile.
f.) Carefully place the profile down in place and roll the
profiles back onto a flat secure position.
g.) All profiles shall be stored on flat true surface. Special
notice and care should be taken when stacked profile on top
of one another.
1.09 Project Conditions
A. Project Site Conditions:
The contractor shall have access of electric or generated
power, clean potable water and a clean job site in order to
install the DMI Architectural Profiles.
B. Environmental Conditions:
1.) As specified by the EIMA and the EIFS manufactures regulations
the ambient air and wall surface temperature conditions shall
remain above 40º F (4ºC) for at least 24 hours or
thereafter if required for the material to sufficiently dry.
2.) All Adhesive or base coating products shall be applied
only at temperatures above 40º F (4ºC). All procedures
shall comply with the E.I.F.S Manufactures specifications.
3.) Supplemental heating within an enclosed area must be
provided for a minimum of 24 hours prior, during and subsequent
to the installation to maintain a minimum temperature of 40º
F (4ºC) or above. All products to be installed shall
be allowed to acclimatize for a minimum period of 24 hours
prior to the commencement of the installation procedure. Note:
This temperature must be maintained for a minimum of 24 hours
or more after the final installation. All procedures shall
comply with the E.I.F.S Manufactures specifications.
1.) The use of temporary heat within an enclosed area shall
be provided to maintain a minimum temperatures of 40º
F (4ºC) or above.
2.) The usage of protective tarps over the architectural
products may be implemented, however it is important that
excess heat, humidity or condensation levels. Measures should
be taken in order to prevent excess air entrapment or heat
build-up under the tarps.
4.) The surrounding project area shall be clean or debris.
The DMI Architectural profiles are shall remain protected
from splatter or debris spills.
