Polantis announces the uploading of OnLevel’s BIM catalog
OnLevel is a specialist in innovative and design glass railings. OnLevel products allow quick and easy installation and provide added value. The products offer support not only along the steps and stairs, but also ensure the safety of balconies and galleries. OnLevel says that thanks to their products the user has a better view.
Before our interview, Niels Wildschut, Sales Manager France claimed that : “specifiers can customize their design and combine all elements to their liking: select components within a system or combine products from our different lines. Not only are our products completely flexible, but they are also strictly controlled by the main international supervisory authorities and have quality markings and certificates required in different countries, such as the CE marking of stainless steel, aluminum, made of die-cast zinc and glass products. In France, our products are tested and validated by the CSTB.”
Why have you started a BIM approach ?
Our BIM approach is very important to us, because it will allow us to communicate directly with the specifiers as soon as they download our files. In our opinion, BIM will grow more and more, because it enables to:
- Reduce the cost and delays in construction;
- Transmit more informations because the objects are accompanied by data, this information benefits everyone and reduces the amount of errors;
- Build virtually before starting to build in reality. Therefore, it is possible to make changes before the construction begins.
Why have you started this BIM approach with Polantis ?
In my opinion, Polantis is the platform most used by specifiers in France. Polantis offers many opportunities to inform users about each product: product details, data sheets, installation sheets, CCTP texts, images of achievements, commercial / installer contacts … and all this by using a common platform. Polantis meets the needs of specifiers in their research for the best products on the internet.
Why have you modeled those products or that product range?
Most of our railing systems that are under Technical Notice are now online. To complete our range on the Polantis platform, our design office deals with finishing BIM / CAD objects for 3 other models. At the beginning of 2020, we hope to add a new line ” Skyforce ”. It is a system of glass railing that arises in front of the windows (balcony). It is our goal to innovate as much as possible.
What are the particularities of the products that are online?
The products on the Polantis platform are glass railing systems. Since 2008, we are active in this business. As we only make glass railings, it is easy to say that we are true specialists! Presenting all our systems on the Polantis platform, allows us to assert our passion and so highlight our passion.
What kind of message are you willing to convey to the users of the platform who download your products?
Do not hesitate to contact OnLevel if you need help: you will be accompanied in your approach and your projects. It is quite possible that we have the solution (which would not necessarily appear on Polantis). Moreover, as we are designers we can create tailor-made solutions and support specific projects.
