A product specification, also known as a ‘spec’, is a document outlining the product included in a design, how it will be built, what it will look like and any relevant requirements and functions.
A thorough understanding of the product is needed to write a good specification, and it’s even better if it’s clearly formatted and easy to understand. This greatly helps the builder and installer and also means it’s less likely to be substituted by another product.
If this all sounds like a lot of work, we can help. We have various resources to get you an ace specification of our product for your project’s design.
