For the past decade,Specifications for Commercial Interiorshas been the definitive guide to required information on regulations and liabilities, materials performance criteria, and specification writing for interior systems. Today more than ever, every professional involved in the design of commercial and institutional interior space needs to know how to evaluate materials, avoid liability, and comply with current regulations. This new edition has been completely revised. Every section has been updated, and new chapters have been added on paneling, life cycle costing, data management, and fire performance testing. The book also incorporates the 1989 specification data issued by the Construction Specifications Institute. Used for a required course in the College of Architecture at Arizona State University, this book consists of 18 chapters—well documented with charts, diagrams, and checklists—which are organized into three parts. The first part defines professional and product liability and outlines the latest regulations and standards. Three separate chapters are devoted to fire hazards and their effect on interior finishes, upholstery, and furniture specification. Part 2 discusses interior systems and materials: rugs and carpets, resilient and hard-surface flooring, interior wall finishes, paneling, window systems, and commercial furniture. Life cycle costing is covered, as are the requirements for barrier-free public interiors. Part 3 establishes guidelines for coordinating drawings, schedules, and specification documents. The latest technological developments are referred to throughout the text, and up-to-date terminology is defined in glossaries at the ends of chapters. The book is an invaluable reference for interior designers, architects, and students of these professions.

The study of human body measurements on a comparative basis is known as anthropometrics. Its applicability to the design process is seen in the physical fit, or interface, between the human body and the various components of interior space. Human Dimension and Interior Space is the first major anthropometrically based reference book of design standards for use by all those involved with the physical planning and detailing of interiors, including interior designers, architects, furniture designers, builders, industrial designers, and students of design. The use of anthropometric data, although no substitute for good design or sound professional judgment should be viewed as one of the many tools required in the design process. This comprehensive overview of anthropometrics consists of three parts. The first part deals with the theory and application of anthropometrics and includes a special section dealing with physically disabled and elderly people. It provides the designer with the fundamentals of anthropometrics and a basic understanding of how interior design standards are established. The second part contains easy-to-read, illustrated anthropometric tables, which provide the most current data available on human body size, organized by age and percentile groupings. Also included is data relative to the range of joint motion and body sizes of children. The third part contains hundreds of dimensioned drawings, illustrating in plan and section the proper anthropometrically based relationship between user and space. The types of spaces range from residential and commercial to recreational and institutional, and all dimensions include metric conversions. In the Epilogue, the authors challenge the interior design profession, the building industry, and the furniture manufacturer to seriously explore the problem of adjustability in design. They expose the fallacy of designing to accommodate the so-called average man, who, in fact, does not exist. Using government data, including studies prepared by Dr. Howard Stoudt, Dr. Albert Damon, and Dr. Ross McFarland, formerly of the Harvard School of Public Health, and Jean Roberts of the U.S. Public Health Service, Panero and Zelnik have devised a system of interior design reference standards, easily understood through a series of charts and situation drawings. With Human Dimension and Interior Space, these standards are now accessible to all designers of interior environments.
