What’s the Issue?
You make the products from which buildings
But others decide whether to use your
products on a particular building and how to
use them. Who? Designers, builders, and
owners. You need an effective way to…
Get their attention, and
Inform their work

What’s the Issue?
If you don’t get their attention, they won’t
know your products, and you’ll miss a sale.
If they don’t get your information, they
could use your products in inappropriate ways.
Then you’ll have to…
Propose corrections through the submittals
process, with all the work that entails.
Spend more time on shop drawings
Decide whether to honor your warrantee
when inappropriately applied products fail.
Deal with claims and other sources of liability.

What’s the Issue?
It costs you to produce and distribute
It’s hard for your product reps to get to
everyone who needs them.
The information you distribute gets obsolete.
Even if you post updates to a website, it and
they have to be found.
Your products may not be remembered or
applied appropriately when decisions are

For now, you try to manage through contact.
You provide data: product binders, CAD
details, test reports, samples, etc.
You hold seminars and answer calls
(assuming they call).
You go to trade shows and advertise, with
all of the associated costs.
And still it’s hard.

Is there a better way?
It’s called DetaiLogic™

An advisor that suggests materials and
assemblies to its users
An instructor that helps users decide and
introduces them to new materials
A tester that quickly assesses the implications
when project requirements change.
A draftsman that compiles custom details from
their constituent subassemblies, and outputs
detail drawings and specification sections.

How does it work?
It asks designers what they want from their details.
They can input a list of performance criteria, select
specific materials, or do a combination of the two.
It searches a library for data on subassemblies and
materials that correspond to or fulfill the inputted list.
It compiles the subassemblies into connections, and
the connections into details.
It outputs drawings, specifications, and a performance
assessment of the compiled detail.
It lets designers link to you for other support (to
order samples, get questions answered, etc.).

Where’s the data library come from?
From you. You prepare the proprietary details and
specifications used by DetaiLogic™.
When? You can update your data at any time, and they
will be immediately available to DetaiLogic™ users.
How is it different from what you put on your website?
Your data will have to fit a format unique to DetaiLogic™ that makes all of the alternative choices
interchangeable. Then your product’s control joint
detail can be instantly substituted for another’s.
Your data will be part of a huge system where
design professionals will easily find it.

It does so at precisely the right time and place: when
decisions are being made, and for the people making the

specifications will be accurate.
DetaiLogic™ provides a direct link for contractor users to
place orders for your products.
