Specifiers Guide - Partitioning

Specifying partitioning seems, on the face of it, simple enough: consider the look, performance and cost, and there it is. If only it were that simple there would not be cases where inappropriate glass was used in guarding, or the partition wasn’t performing acoustically because the flanking paths hadn’t been addressed.

This guide, written by industry specialists, pulls together decades of experience from specification writers who almost instinctively know the questions on all aspects – from performance, material characteristics, sustainability and environmental to conformity marking, installation, maintenance and end of life.

There has never been a time in construction when the specification has been more important. This specification guide from FIS sets out our desire to help everyone involved in the specification of products and systems, and our commitment to improving the safety of residents, occupiers and those who use the built environment.
