There is an art and science to spec sheets.
Industrial and commercial valve purchasers and process engineers need precise details for the products they specify. Pressure-temperature ranges; exact dimensions; component materials; ANSI ratings… the list goes on.
Our main challenge in designing this documentation is fitting this dense amount of information onto a single page without it looking jammed or cluttered. Section diagrams with leaders to material descriptions are created with the same precise clarity you find on a printed circuit board. Dimensions tables are packed with detailed specs for each valve size.
Information also needs to be updated regularly. We suggested individual inserts for a hard cover ring binder so single pages could be updated as needed. Valve series are separated with laminated tabs for quick reference and each page has revision information in the page footer.
Excel files for material lists and dimension tables were prepared and proofed by the client. We linked those to our InDesign files and applied styling. This ensured accuracy, eliminated typos, and simplified updates.
Diagrams are all vector graphics so they remain crisp and clear in low-resolution PDFs. This ensures small file sizes and easy downloads from the website.
