Shipped in crates or cases.
Liable to breakage, although when packed in crates so that contents can be readily seen, breakage is usually found to be less than if packed in a complete case.
Suppliers sometimes forward a quantity additional to the invoiced amount as an allowance for breakage, and this should be taken into account when determining loss. Partly broken slates have a small value as corner pieces. Should be unaffected by immersion in fresh or salt water; only claim should be in respect of cleaning, i.e. removal of silt. See also Tiles.
