LOADING AND MOVEMENT OF EQUIPMENT (Contd)
d. Loading and Movement. For transportability guidance in handling and
movement of IRB bays, refer to TM 743-200-1, Storage and Materials Handling,
and TM 55-2200-001-12, Transportability Guidance for Application of Blocking,
Bracing, and Tiedown Materials. Refer to TM 5-5420-234-14&P for information on
the Common Bridge Transporter (CBT) and the Bridge Adapter Pallet (BAP).
(1) When unloading an IRB-R or IRB-I for shipment or storage, ensure cargo
bed, pallet, or ground surface is flat, level, and capable of supporting
weight of bay. (Refer to Equipment Data, WP 0003 00, for weights and
dimensions of bays.)
(2) Dunnage should be placed under IRB-R and IRB-I pontons during
unloading to facilitate tiedown and prevent movement during shipment.
Dunnage also prevents damage to bottom of bay when loading from ground
to transporter. It is important to place one additional dunnage under the
IRB-R inner pontons approximately 1 ft (305 mm) from the end of the
approach ramp when unloading bay to ground; the inner pontons narrow
to a point at the approach ramp end, and without the dunnage, the bay
will often tip from side to side, making it very difficult to load on
PREPARATION FOR SHIPMENT AND LIMITED STORAGE
a. Cleaning. Protection for IRB bays and accompanying equipment must be
sufficient to protect the material against deterioration and physical damage.
Skysol-100 mixture is combustible. Use mechanical
ventilation whenever product is used in a confined
space, is heated above ambient temperatures, or is
agitated. DO NOT use or store near heat, sparks,
flame, or other ignition sources. Keep container sealed
when not in use.
Contact with Skysol-100 may cause skin irritation. Use
chemical-resistant gloves. In case of skin contact,
remove any contaminated clothing and wash skin
thoroughly with soap and water. Wash contaminated
clothing before reuse. Eye contact may cause irritation,
tearing, or blurring of vision. Use face shield or goggles
when eye contact may occur. In case of eye contact,
flush eyes with large amounts of water for at least
fifteen (15) minutes or until irritation subsides.
Inhalation may cause irritation to upper respiratory
passages. DO NOT have food or drink in the vicinity.
