Building Information Modelling (BIM) is changing the way buildings are designed, constructed and maintained, says the access control product company SALTO Systems. With NBS (part of RIBA Enterprises Ltd) SALTO has launched a range of products on the NBS National BIM Library.
These include wire free electronic handle sets in a variety of styles, GEO cylinder, glass door lock, wall readers, a controller and lock cases.
BIM combines multiple data streams which allow architects, designers and specifiers to generate a virtual 3D model of a building. By including SALTO BIM objects at the specification stage, it allows for greater integration of data that defines the product and geometry that represents the product’s physical characteristics
The objects are available in Revit format and in the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) and are free to access. NBS National BIM Library work with various BIM design tools which can be integrated into NBS Create software; no other BIM object library offers this service, the firms add.
