BS2482:2009 defines both visual and machine strength grading standards for 38mm x 225mm boards supported at 1.2m spans and 63mm x 225mm boards supported at 2.5m spans; and machine strength grading standards only for 38mm x 225mm boards supported at 1.5m spans. This guidance is reviewed on the basis of removing A grade boards that should not exist. A visually graded board is still a BS2482 product and should be marked as such on the end band.
This guidance note is concerned with advice for the safe erection, use and dismantling of temporary suspended chutes intended for the conveyance of waste construction materials.
