SAFETY GLASSES

When cutting ContiBoard it is recommended that you wear safety glasses. As you cut the ContiBoard panel small chips of the surface laminate could be thrown up during the cutting process, particularly when using power tools. It is recommended to use a power tool or hand saw with a fine cut that has a lot of teeth. The best type of hand saw to use is a pull saw.

GLOVES

When using ContiBoard it is recommended that you wear a pair of anti-slip gloves during the handling of panels in case of sharp edges.

Safety Glasses

BOOTS

Because of the size and weight of the ContiBoard panels it is advisable to wear safety boots or stout shoes.

GENERAL SAFETY WHEN APPLYING CONTI EDGING TAPE

Extra precautions need to be taken when applying Conti Edging Tape as you need to use a hot iron and a sharp tool (chisel, knife, etc.) to trim off the excess tape and a piece of glass paper for taking the sharp edges off.

MASK

When sanding panels a mask should be worn as fine particles of dust are produced.
