SFS intec provides structured BIM data for fasteners

  • 9 Aug 2017

SFS intec is providing architects and designers working on BIM projects with ready-to-use structured data on the most widely used roofing and cladding fasteners.

The structured product data published by SFS intec is available to download on the website, providing a comprehensive library of product information to support BIM Level 2.

Andy Stolworthy, Product and Market Development Manager at SFS intec, says: “We believe that through standardising data, clients and project teams will be able to compare and select products based on value and life cycle benefits rather than just price. This should allow for better quality products to be selected, so that life cycle costings reduce.

“The fastener plays a fundamental role in the roof or facade system, but with current working practices and BIM software technology we believe at this time that a 3D BIM object would not be as widely beneficial as structured data. This presents product information in plain language with simple questions and answers allowing integration into a greater system element, be that data or 3D geometry.”

In addition to CAD drawings, ETA and Technical Value sheets, SFS intec has defined its own structured product data template, available here, initially for self-drilling fasteners, with five Structured Data Sheets available for fasteners SL2, SX3, SX5, SXC5 and SXC14.
