Here at DIY2Go Conservatories we take Health and Safety extremely seriously. We have put together a few pointers to help you in your planning of your new living space. DIY2Go Conservatories always advises customers to read the relevant information instructions for each step before commencement of the work. By following this step-by-step guide carefully you will erect the conservatory in the best and safest way.

All the parts are packaged and identified with labelling. Please ensure you avoid mixing the parts. The key points with reference to health and safety are as follows.

  • Some of the parts may be difficult or too heavy for one person to handle so it is advisable for someone else to be available to help as necessary.
  • Please ensure that you use appropriate protection equipment that conforms to both manufacturers’ guidelines and health and safety legislation.
  • Check step ladders to make sure that they are in line with health and safety requirements.
  • It is the responsibility of the installer to comply with all health and safety regulations, before and during the installation of the conservatory.

DIY 2 Go Conservatories recommend that you always stack panels and door leafs flat in a dry clean environment. Please note that if you fail to follow the above advise and this results in bowed doors or panels they should still be able, although it will certainly make it more difficult to fit.

We strongly recommend that you ensure the PVC sections supplied with your conservatory are warmed up to room temperature (approx 20 degrees) prior to fitting. PVC can become stiff and more difficult to work with in cold temperatures. During the winter months, warming the PVC to room temperature will make the material more pliable, easier to fit and will therefore simplify and speed in the DIY Conservatory installation.
