Providing work with the highest accuracy, precision and quality to satisfy customers are FRS Company’s pride. Since natural stones travel miles before reaching their destination hence it is fundamental and essential that they are securely packed to surpass all the harsh treatment.
In order to protect these stones from breakage or even damage our dedicated packaging team ensures the right procedures while packing stones in wooden and metal pallets.
Each wooden crate is first inlined with polythene to protect stones from staining from wooden planks or from any other feature, then it is inlined with foam-sheet along horizontal planks to protect stones against damage from wooden planks or nails. This is a fundamental preliminary packing used for all our wooden crates irrespective of the type of stone packed.
In case of polished stones, surface of each slab/tile is protected by using a paper cloth or 2mm-foam while tightly stacking them in a wooden crate. This protects the polished surface of stones from scratching due to abrasion of dust particles between two tiles.
In case of 10mm or 15mm tiles which are very thin to break, 6-10 such tiles are first packed in cardboard boxes. These boxes are then tightly stacked in the wooden crate. Cardboard boxes provide additional cushion to the thin tiles and prevent them from breakage. In case of softer but costlier stones like polished marble or granite tiles in 10mm thickness, 5-10 such tiles are first packed in Styrofoam (thermocol) boxes and then tightly stacked in wooden crate.
In case of mint sandstone, specially, it retains moisture and is off-white to peach-yellow in color. The 15mm tiles as mentioned above are packed in cardboard boxes but thicker tiles with pencil edge, bullnose or rebated bullnose are individually packed in polythene bags before tight stacking in wooden crates. As a special case the wooden crates are also inlined with thermocol sheets for additional protection. We have adopted this special packing method with our experience.
