While editing this specification, take note of the following:
This document is designed for “delete-only” editing. Some paragraphs require that you select among two or more options. The optional text is bracketed: e.g.: “Section [09000.] [_____.]" If your draft copy includes the “[“ or “]” characters, it almost certainly includes too many options. Use Find to locate these sections and edit appropriately.
Occasionally, options include entire paragraphs. Rather than use brackets, the document separates these optional paragraphs an "OR" statement, e.g.:
*** EITHER ***
**** OR ****
As with brackets, your final specification should not contain any *** OR *** notes between paragraphs.

1.7DELIVERY, STORAGE & HANDLING
A.General: Comply with Division 1 Product Requirements Sections.
B.Ordering: Comply with manufacturer’s ordering instructions and lead-time requirements to avoid construction delays.
C.Delivery: Deliver materials in manufacturer’s original, unopened, undamaged packages with intact identification labels.
NOTE TO SPECIFIER: Coordinate article below with Environmental Specifications sections.
D.Storage and Protection: Store materials away from exposure to harmful weather conditions and at temperature and humidity conditions recommended by manufacturer.
NOTE TO SPECIFIER: Coordinate article below with Conditions of the Contract and with Division 1 Closeout Submittals (Warranty) Section.
A.Do not install equipment until the following conditions can be maintained in spaces to receive equipment:
1.Ambient temperature: 0° to 40° C (32° to 104° F).
2.Relative humidity: Maximum 95 percent, non-condensing.
3.Lighting control system must be protected from dust during installation.
A.Ballast warranty is specified in section  — Ballasts.
As specified in Article 1.8, Paragraph B, the Leviton LevNet RF system warranty is 3 years. See system specification for details.
B.Manufacturer’s Warranty: All equipment shall be warranted free of defects in materials and workmanship.
1.Warranty Period: All system components shall be warranted for at least five (5) years from date of system commissioning.
2.Owner’s Rights: Manufacturer’s warranty is in addition to, not a limitation of, other rights the Owner may have under contract documents.
NOTE TO SPECIFIER: LevNet RF equipment can be purchased and installed without factory commissioning. Delete Article 1.10 if you do not intend to use either of the factory commissioning options listed on your project. If you do intend to use factory commissioning services, pick one of the two options described below and delete the other.
As specified in Article 1.10, a lighting control system requires at least one site visit for proper commissioning. If multiple site visits are required, the first ensures that the contractor is trained to install the system correctly. On the second, the factory engineer will start up the system, ensure that it is operating according to specification, and perform initial programming. The third visit is for the purposes of refining the programming, and training the owner/end user on the system.
*** EITHER ***
Note to Specifier: Under normal circumstances, the maintenance cycle for LevNet RF components will equal or exceed the system’s useful life. Therefore, the topic of maintenance has been omitted from the system handover requirements.
*** OR ***
A.Enable the end user to order new equipment for system expansion, replacements, and spare parts.
B.Make new replacement parts available for a minimum of ten years from the date of manufacture.
As specified in Article 1.11, Paragraph C, using an answering service to handle technical support calls only adds to the contractor’s frustration and delays the resolutions of any problems or issues. With a 24/7 tech support hotline, project cost overruns and delays can occur. Manufacturers who do not offer 24/7 tech support should not be acceptable suppliers to this project.
C.Provide factory direct technical support hotline 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
D.Offer renewable annual service contracts, to include parts, factory labor, and annual training visits.
