Polantis announces to post Kawneer’s BIM catalogue online
The KALUBIM 3D catalogue contains 78 objects which cover the majority of Kawneer’s doors, windows and aluminium facade systems:
- all versions (fixed, French window, folding wing, several casements…) of KASIOPEE windows with concealed openings, KALORY with visible openings, KALORY R with breathable opening and KALORY SPECI’AL K with semi-visible openings,
- in all their versions (fixed, French window, folding wing, several casements…),

- KANADA, KANADA FD and K190 RPT doors,
- all versions (railing, strip window, frame…) of curtain walls KADRILLE 1202, AA100 and AA110.
“Today, the prescribers expect simplicity, a summarized information which is easy to read, but also light BIM objects that won’t increase the size of the digital model. These objects have to be parametric, that means that their dimensions have to be adjustable to the real dimensions of the product”, explains Betrand Gasnier, Polantis’ Commercial Director.
In order to meet these requirements, KAWNEER and Polantis designed integrated BIM objects, all graphical and technical data for every solution are included in only one file. Three levels of displays enable the adjustment of the object’s graphical representation according to the requested level of detail (Level of Detail 100 to 300) without increasing the file’s size. Moreover, each BIM object includes not only the required technical information for calculation (dimensions, performances…), the links to the technical files, technical advice, special technical specifications and certifications, but also the contact of KAWNEER’s prescription team.
During the phase of development KAWNEER’s BIM objects have been tested by Polantis’ partner network of architectural agencies. Their positive feedback enabled the validation of the adopted method.
The entirety of KAWNEER’s BIM objects is downloadable for free in IFC, Revit or Archicad format on the platform for technical information devoted to professionals and prescribers www.kawneer-online.com as well as on the website www.polantis.com.
