- manufacture, transport, cranage, temporary storage, erection or temporary bracing of a concrete panel
- fixing of a concrete panel for the incorporation of the panel as a wall
- removal of temporary bracing of a concrete panel.
This standard sets out the requirements for the planning, design, casting, transportation and erection of tilt-up panels.
