Fibre cement slates are BIM ready

BIM objects for fibre cement slates and roof ridges launched

  • 8 Jan 2016

Cembrit has extended its BIM portfolio with objects for its fibre cement slates and roof ridges, following the success of its natural slate objects.

Last year, Cembrit’s Building Information Modelling (BIM) objects for natural slates received a nomination in the Developers’ Choice BIM Object Awards.

Following this success, the company increased its offering with BIM objects for its roof slates and ridges in a bid to make its entire product portfolio available in this format.

Cembrit’s BIM offering

Cembrit’s BIM objects include product specifications and detailed dimensions, as well as 3D images which can be integrated into virtual models and simulated building designs.

Offering compatibility with both Revit and IFC, the objects can be downloaded and incorporated into any BIM software programme. They are currently hosted on the NBS National BIM Library

This latest addition to Cembrit’s BIM offering allows it to widen its scope and provide solutions for a greater variety of roofing design circumstances.

Its range of fibre cement slates includes: Diamond, Zeeland, Jutland and Westerland, all of which boast a unique appearance. The slates have been developed for use on conventional pitched timber roofs with a rafter pitch of 20° and over; they can also be specified as vertical cladding for external walls.

Cembrit also offers matching fibre cement ridges, fixings and ventilation solutions to complement its BBA-approved range.
