Insulation materials furnished and installed hereunder should meet the minimum thickness requirements of American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers ASHRAE 90.1 (2010), "Energy Efficient Design of New Buildings." However, if other factors such as condensation control or personnel protection are to be considered, the selection of the thickness of insulation should satisfy the controlling factor. 1.5 SUBMITTALS A. Product Data: Submit product characteristics, performance criteria, and limitations, including installation instructions, for each type of product indicated. 1. For adhesives and sealants, submit documentation including printed statement of VOC content. B. Sustainable Design Submittals: Submit manufacturer's sustainable design certifications as specified. 1.6 DELIVERY AND STORAGE OF MATERIALS A. Delivery: Deliver materials in manufacturer's original packaging. B. Storage: Store and protect products in accordance with manufacturer's instructions. Store in a dry indoors location. Protect insulation materials from moisture and soiling. C. Inspection: Arrange storage of products to permit access for inspection. Periodically inspect to verify products are undamaged and are maintained in acceptable condition. D. Do not install insulation that has been damaged or wet. Remove it from jobsite. 1. An exception may be allowed in cases where the contractor is able to demonstrate that wet insulation when fully dried out (either before installation or afterward following exposure to system operating temperatures) will provide installed performance that is equivalent in respects to new, completely dry insulation. In such cases, consult the insulation manufacturer for technical assistance. PART 2 - PRODUCTS 2.1 MANUFACTURER A.
