24 Hours  |  24 CEPs

RECOMMENDED PREREQUISITES: COR123 – Using Door, Frame and Hardware Standards  |  COR147 – Introduction to Specification Writing

Door and frame specifications require as much attention to detail as other specification sections. Fire-rated openings (both neutral and positive pressure tested) require particular attention to construction, labeling requirements, reinforcements, hardware preparations, glazing, and frame anchors. These specifications must be carefully coordinated with other specifications to ensure that the proper materials are provided. This course teaches you how to write clear, concise, correct, and complete door and frame specifications using the Construction Specifications Institute's MasterFormat™ as a guide. You will learn how to:

  • Organize your specifications
  • Use correct specification language
  • Coordinate work in other sections
  • Address product substitutions
