How it works

Users can sign-in to Powerspec and follow an easy click-to-enter path to give details of their tiling project’s background, environmental conditions, tile type and size, area to be tiled and joint width. Powerspec then generates NBS format specifications, conforming to all relevant British standards. The user can opt for an architect’s specification, a contractor’s specification or a method statement. The most appropriate adhesives and grouts can be identified, including quantities required, and detailed material safety and technical information can be downloaded.

Accessible across all of your devices

In the office, on the move or even on-site

The world’s first online specification tool for tile adhesives and grouts has been completely upgraded and is now accessible via mobile phones, tablets, laptops or desktops. The improved processing performance means that it is unbelievably fast in use – with no downloads required, is extremely intuitive and simple to use, and responsive to provide the optimal display for whichever type of device is being used to access the specification tool.
