This standard covers the handling, transport and storage of PE pipe and fittings in commercially available sizes. It covers PE pipe ion coils, on drums and as straight lengths. The contents are general to the wide range of components and assemblies available, and as such the specific application will need to take account of the specific circumstances and components involved.
The standard highlights precautions to control PE pipe products being delivered, offloaded and stored safely at customers’ sites. The underlying theme is that PE pipe products be treated with a similar level of caution as perceived heavier pipe products and be unloaded in a controlled and safe manner.
