Handling of tiles 

Material handling

Handling of tiles is fairly easy because tiles are usually sold packed in 10 per box and the weight of the box is approximately 60 lbs. One person should be able to carry one box of tiles, and if the floor permits, a two-wheeler will be helpful to move the stone. It is important that the tiles be standing vertically.

Handling slabs is more complicated. When the pieces are large and heavy, slabs should be loaded and unloaded with the proper equipment, a forklift with boom or an overhead crane. If the marble or granite has a polished face, the slabs should be loaded vertically with the polished faces touching each other.

At the job site, the slabs must be carried in a vertical position.
