The product cannot be described because of its technically involved construction or composition.
A minimum of three manufacturers are specified.
Use the following wording:
"[Product or system] shall be [model, make, etc.], as manufactured by [name and address]; or [model,
make, etc.], as manufactured by [name and address]; or [model, make, etc.] as manufactured by [name
and address] or equal."
Following this, the essential features of the product or system shall be set forth in sufficient detail to establish the
basis upon which the equality of non-listed products will be determined.
When specifying building finishes, i.e., carpet, resilient tile flooring, etc., keep specifications generic. Do not list
manufacturers names in the specification, rather provide a color key (listing of manufacturers) together with the
finish schedule in the drawings. The following disclaimer shall be added:
"Patterns and colors listed by the manufacturer's name are for identification only. The listing is not
intended to limit selection of similar finish colors and patterns from other manufacturers."
