Too often I see specs that list products that have been discontinued for years!~! Or, the approved products list won't correspond with the paint schedule further along in the same spec section! THEN, there's information on the plans that contradicts BOTH things in the specs. Come on, architects - PLEASE make it a little easier for us painting contractors!

Oh and one other thing - PLEASE stop relying on MPI to do your job! I'm working on a project right now where the architect listed a standard of performance product from a manufacturer that wasn't included in the MPI listings - Tnemec. Then, when I submitted the Tnemec product, they turned it down and requested to see the MPI listing for the product type! And THEY were the ones who said to use Tnemec!!

As a manufacturer I agree with Nancy, I see specs. weekly with manufacturer's who are no longer in business! Antiquated systems and products are still being specified. Very frustrating.

I can not understand how MPI has become so entrenched. It only adds cost for the architects who purchase and the manufacturers who list. In many cases this system allows for high cost yet inadequate MPI systems to be selected and installed. Customers may or may not be getting the best technologies or systems available.
