Handle all aspects of engineering document coordination beginning to project closeout. It is an engineering discipline. Your job.


Crane Binder Technologies is focused on helping build a safer and healthier world. Project Closeout binder manufacturing is a minor but important facet to your construction project. Crane's high end, hand made, hard cover, NO FAIL RING hybrid binders aid engineering solutions that are helping modernize the world's industrial process, water systems, health care and municipal infrastructure. SHP tm Swing Hinge Advanced Hybrid ring binder serves the large capacity O&M manual and construction Project Closeout reporting function allied with digital electronic systems. Paper based information is concrete. Documents may last 4,000 years.

Crane Binder Technologies's principals have produced archival library grade close out documentation binders for decades.

Each month we hear of construction project close out documentation submittals being rejected because Contractor has used common office store vinyl 3 ring binders. Actual call out of specific binder style is being missed by the subcontractor submitter. This could add 3-4 weeks to project closure and final payment to contractor being rendered late.

By name Crane Binder Technologies, McBee Binder Co Springfield, MO, BOK Hinge, or equivalent are sometimes written into the contract documentation requirements.

For over 40 years design Build Contractors have specified Hard cover NO FAIL ring binders like McBee Swing hinge, Crane SHP, BOK Hinge or equivalent. Their reasoning is simple, binders should last life cycle of the facility.

Crane Binder Technologies SHP Hybrid binder is used in countries all over the world. Black & Veatch has offices in 100 countries.

Set up cost, added labor short job run may mean that a 25.00 Hardcover binder, custom printed with contract number/titles could cost 200.00 each or more. These binders are usually paid for at inception of job. Phone for specific details. 800 298 5555.

Extra heavy duty NO FAIL SHP binders will support operations for the life cycle of the facility.Hot foil stamping allows production of important mini size custom binder jobs. When close out management document binders are foil printed, binder skin (covering) is loaded one by one into hot foil stamping machine (15 - 20 tons Pressure) If there are copy changes (e.g. vol 1 vol 2) binder cover is reloaded perhaps 5 -7 times just to complete single foil printing project closeout binder.

O & M Manuals have a noble goal to support the life cycle of facility by eliminating unplanned shutdowns and realizing life cycle cost saving. We hear that project owner wants completed As Built Drawings report, O&M manuals 90 - 120 days prior to project closeout construction completion.

Hot foil stamping used to print name of project , contract number, volume numbers of book. Project owners and sponsor engineering design firm are very specific in what titles are printed. Some state the font size required for spine and front covers of O &M manual.(e.g. Black & Veatch) Repeatedly Project Managers will fail to be aware of contract language warning that common office supply 3 ring binders will be rejected. The little known reason for 3 ring binders not being allowed is a fact that ring binder suppliers have avoided revealing. The problem is that any round ring or D ring binder containing more than 1.75 inches of paper experiences "mechanical interference" between ring and paper. For this reason Crane Binder Technologies is sometimes specifically named as a suggested vendor for Contract Close Out Project Closeout, Record Drawing and As Built drawing documentation.


Detailed facility specific Record Drawings manuals are increasingly important. They support the interest of the Project owner. An accurate and complete set of record drawings will lower their cost during the project's life cycle. You built up the needed documents from field data collected during the course of the project. Thus with the Project Close Out documents ready and presented on time you are building contractor relationships not just projects.

Besides SHP Swing Hinge binders Crane also supports your project with large oversize Clipboards, Ringboards and the famous PosseBox aluminum document center with exterior clip. Clear plastic sheet protector for 24 x36 size drawings is proving popular. Call us 800-298-555.
