1.3 SUBMITTALS

**************************************************************************

NOTE: Review submittal description (SD) definitions in Section 01 33 00 SUBMITTAL PROCEDURES and edit the following list to reflect only the submittals required for the project.

The Guide Specification technical editors have designated those items that require Government approval, due to their complexity or criticality, with a "G." Generally, other submittal items can be reviewed by the Contractor's Quality Control

System. Only add a “G” to an item, if the submittal is sufficiently important or complex in context of the project.

For submittals requiring Government approval on Army projects, a code of up to three characters within the submittal tags may be used following the "G" designation to indicate the approving authority.

Codes for Army projects using the Resident

Management System (RMS) are: "AE" for

Architect-Engineer; "DO" for District Office

(Engineering Division or other organization in the

District Office); "AO" for Area Office; "RO" for

Resident Office; and "PO" for Project Office. Codes following the "G" typically are not used for Navy,

Air Force, and NASA projects.

An "S" following a submittal item indicates that the submittal is required for the Sustainability

Notebook to fulfill federally mandated sustainable requirements in accordance with Section 01 33 29

SUSTAINABILITY REPORTING.

Choose the first bracketed item for Navy, Air Force and NASA projects, or choose the second bracketed item for Army projects.

**************************************************************************

Government approval is required for submittals with a "G" designation; submittals not having a "G" designation are for [Contractor Quality Control approval.] [information only. When used, a designation following the "G" designation identifies the office that will review the submittal for the

Government.] Submittals with an "S" are for inclusion in the

Sustainability Notebook, in conformance to Section 01 33 29 SUSTAINABILITY

2.1 WINDOW SHADES

**************************************************************************

NOTE: Light filtering shades are translucent and softly diffuse light to the amount that the fabric selected by the designer allows. Room darkening

(black-out) shades are opaque and block out light completely. The designer should specify a complete room darkening system only if total light block is necessary, as in an audio visual application. A room darkening shade is typically made of a vinyl coated fiberglass cloth. Do not specify cotton cambric fabric for room darkening shades since it cannot provide total light block. Coordinate maximum unit sizes available with the window sizes.

2.2 COLOR

**************************************************************************

NOTE: Editing of color reference sentence(s) must be coordinated with the Government. Generally,

Section 09 06 90 SCHEDULES FOR PAINTING AND COATING or drawings are used to indicate color references.

SECTION 12 24 13 Page 8

Color must be selected from manufacturer's standard colors or identified as a manufacturer's color in this specification only when the project has minimal finishes.

When the government directs that color be located in the drawings, a note shall be added to the drawings that states: "Where color is shown as being specific to one manufacturer, an equivalent color by another manufacturer may be submitted for approval.

Manufacturers and materials specified are not intended to limit the selection of equal colors from other manufacturers. The word "color" as used herein includes surface color and pattern."

Considerations of fabric selection include: glare control, view maintenance, privacy and heat build-up. Identify if solar reflective property is required on the backside of the fabric and specify a dual-sided fabric if applicable.

When more than one type, pattern or color is specified identify location.

When a manufacturer's name, stock number, pattern, and color is specified for color, verify that the product conforms to the specification, as edited and is not a proprietary product.

**************************************************************************

Provide color, pattern and texture for metal and shade fabric [in accordance with Section 09 06 90 SCHEDULES FOR PAINTING AND COATING.] [as indicated] [_____]. Color listed is not intended to limit the selection of equal colors from other manufacturers. [Openness factor of shade fabric must be [_____] percent.]

PART 3 EXECUTION

3.1 FIELD MEASUREMENTS

After becoming familiar with details of the work, verify all dimensions in the field, and advise the Contracting Officer of any discrepancy before performing the work.

3.2 ROLLER WINDOW SHADE PLACEMENT SCHEDULE

**************************************************************************

NOTE: The Roller Window Shade Placement Schedule will be provided at the designer's option when it will clarify placement of the window treatments.

When all exterior windows are to receive a window treatment, a note can be added to this effect instead of filling out the schedule completely. The location of window treatment placement should be clearly defined within this specification. The

Placement Schedule will be completely filled out with the room number/name, window covering type, window type and quantity.

**************************************************************************

SECTION 12 24 13 Page 9

[All exterior windows include [_____].] [Provide window covering as follows:

Room Number/Name Roller Window Shade

Covering Type

Window Type/Size Window Quantity

]

[_____] [_____] [_____] [_____]

3.3 INSTALLATION

Perform installation in accordance with the approved detail drawings and manufacturer's installation instructions. Install units level, plumb, secure, and at proper height and location relative to window units.

Provide and install supplementary or miscellaneous items in total, including clips, brackets, or anchorages incidental to or necessary for a sound, secure, and complete installation. Do not start installation until completion of room painting and finishing operations.

3.4 CLEAN-UP

Upon completion of the installation, clean window treatments and adjust them for form and appearance and proper operating condition. Repair or replace damaged units as directed by the Contracting Officer. Isolate metal parts from direct contact with concrete, mortar, or dissimilar metals. Ensure shades installed in recessed pockets can be removed without disturbing the pocket. The entire shade, when retracted, shall be contained inside the pocket. For shades installed outside the jambs and mullions, overlap each jamb and mullion 20 mm 0.75 inch or more when the jamb and mullion sizes permit. Include all hardware, brackets, anchors, fasteners, and accessories necessary for a complete, finished installation.
