Guide Specification for High-Performance Architectural Coatings

Linetec Guide SpecificaitonA new guide specification for factory-applied metal finishes, “Section 05 0513 Shop Applied Coatings for Metal 3-part Guide Specification,” is available for download from Linetec’s online Architect Resources section of its website.

Prepared according to the principles of Construction Specification Institute and Construction Specifications Canada (CSI/CSC), the guide specification reflects MasterFormat™ titles and numbers as of April 2011. Linetec’s six-page document coordinates with Division 01 to address various sections pertaining to both polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) liquid paint coatings and anodize finishes for aluminum railings, metalwork, frames, louvers, sun screens, roof and wall panels, doors and entrances, windows and skylights, storefronts, curtainwalls, and more.

As the first-known, non-propriety guide spec offering concise language for selecting and specifying high-performance PVDF and anodize finishing in CSI three-part format for shop-applied metal finishes, this spec goes beyond the stringent standards and regulations, It offers specifiable differences that contribute to a projects long life, durability, and in turn lowers risk or involved.

This trusted, standard format improves communication among all parties involved in commercial, architectural and institutional projects. It provides consistent documentation for architects to include in the project manual and bid requests they send to contractors. This allows them to evaluate the products and services that meet the required specifications and will achieve their design goals. This helps project teams meet owners’ requirements, timelines and budgets, and in turn, lowers risk for all involved.
