Health & Safety Product Information


Cold rolled sections manufactured from pre-galvanised mild steel.  Some sections may be manufactured from pre-painted material.

Product Use

Always use products for the purpose intended as described in the technical literature.

When subjected to elevated temperatures during welding or cutting, toxic fumes are produced.  Inhalation of these may cause metal fume fever, a short lasting condition with symptoms similar to those of influenza.  Therefore adequate ventilation or fume extraction should be provided, and where necessary, protective masks should be worn.

If skin irritation occurs, rinse well with clean cold water, then wash thoroughly.  If symptoms persist obtain medical advice.

In the event of eye contamination or if any product is swallowed seek medical advice immediately.

Metal products may have sharp corners and edges which can cause lacerations.  Always use suitable gloves when handling as per HSE guidelines.

When working overhead or when cutting metal products, the use of protective eye glasses is advisable.

Metal is a good conductor of electricity.  Proper precautions should be taken when working near live power lines or electrical equipment.

Metal can become charged. Static electricity may cause sparks when earthed.

Personal hygiene is important, always wash hands well particularly before eating.
