The CSI MasterSpec is generally organized around materials. However there are many examples of building products that have more than one material (and are not Division 06 composites).
Take an aluminium window which comes pre-glazed in the factory. Does the whole window fall under the same Section in Division 08, including the glass? Another example is a architectural precast concrete sandwich panel with embedded rigid insulation. Is the whole panel, including insulation, specified in Division 03? Or does the insulation fall under Division-07?
Basically, are specs organised according to what is assembled on site versus what comes to the site pre-assembled? If something is pre-assembled, then all the materials used to make the product are included in one Division/Section only, correct?
I've been reading a lot and I find that I still get confused about this, probably because I've never been involved in specifying. At this point I think the only way I can be certain about this is by asking someone experienced.
Please help! I'd really appreciate it.
