Hairline fractures may occur in steel reinforced wall panels and concrete decking. This does not affect their overall performance and durability. Hairline cracks occur in concrete panels due to weight considerations (health and safety) in their manufacture. To minimise hairline cracks the product would need to be manufactured to a thicker dimension. This would in turn have the adverse effect of making the product too heavy for manual handling and because of health and safety lifting regulations, we are not permitted to manufacture concrete products that exceed safe lifting guidelines.
Replacement of products is not necessary and if required will incur a replacement delivery charge. A waiting period may also apply. Also note we cannot guarantee any replacement panel will not have similar defects. There could also be issues with matching the batch colours.
