Specify with ease. The new Specifying Fielders® Online Portal is the digital repository for Fielders technical and specification literature. It’s designed to be accessible whenever and wherever you need it. Digitising our literature design files, and design software makes access simple and ensures the content you’re accessing is always as up to date as possible.
Whilst the portal is designed to be simple and intuitive to use this user guide is designed to give users an overview on how to get the most from this online tool from Fielders.

Searching

Focal Image of Search Function

The sticky sidebar offers page related functions such as adding favourites, sharing a page via email or printing a PDF of a page.

Our contextual help menu will grow over time to be page specific. If you have a query that’s not currently included in the help menu simply ask a Fielders rep for assistance.

  • Add to favourite
  • Share the page with a colleague
  • Print PDF
  • Access help

Searching the portal reveals which manual the results are in, making finding the data you need one step easier.

TIP: When searching use Boolean search to produce more relevant results. What is Boolean search? Combine keywords with operators (or modifiers) such as AND, NOT and OR. For example, a Boolean search could be “walling” AND “Finesse”. This would limit the search results to only those documents containing the two keywords.

Data Tables

Table of Contents

The portal provides data in sharable and usable formats to improve your workflow.

You can export an entire table to include in your specification documents, or copy and paste the data into a spreadsheet to run your own calcs. We’ve date stamped all the exports so you’ll always know when the data was retrieved.

Use the Table Of Contents (TOC) menu for easy access to different sections within a page.

For the best experience on the portal we recommend disabling pop-up blockers. Some browsers block pop-ups which may prevent completion of exports. If you are using Internet Explorer please allow pop ups.

If you are using a handheld device you can allow pop-ups in the device’s settings, simply navigate to the settings, look for the browser app and click to allow pop-ups.

Using Handheld Devices

We’ve optimised the portal to work across handheld devices and tablets however the nature of the portal’s content means that the user experience is altered on smaller screens.
This will be most apparent when viewing tables, which have a horizontal scrolling function applied to them. If you’re viewing the portal on a smaller screen look out for the dashed line on the right side of tables and swipe left to view more of the table.
