Installation Safety

Before You Install


It is the sole responsibility of the homeowner, contractor or installer to determine the specific requirements, effectiveness, suitability and safety in regards to any application or use of Ekologix Screening products.
Ekologix Screening is not designed to be a freestanding product.

Ekologix Screening should not:


Always use proper protective clothing and safety equipment when cutting, drilling and installing. Protection of the eyes, nose and mouth from dust particles is especially important when cutting and drilling in confined spaces.


Storage and handling

Ekologix screening boards are heavier and more flexible than traditional timber and therefore must be:

  • Supported at least every 600mm on a level plane.
  • Laid flat especially during transportation and never at an angle.
  • Never be dropped or ‘dumped’ when unloading.
  • Stored on a flat, dry surface.
  • Covered until it is time to use them for installation.
