Mechanical Insulation Specifications: A Definitive Guide

Whether a mechanical insulation project is large or small, there is no substitute for developing a proper specification document. All to often, a spec is developed by “dusting off’ the plans from a previous job, which can result in confusion, delays, and unanticipated expense.

According to the National Mechanical Insulation Committee (NMIC), proper specifications should communicate the project design objectives, materials, thicknesses, finishes, securements and other system requirements. The best method of fleshing out these details, they say, is to follow the NIMC guidelines, which provide a template for defining the specification method, estimating the scope of work, choosing the correct terminology, preparing the right documents, and ensuring there is adequate clearance to accommodate the insulation application.
