Armacell BIM objects for flexible insulation

Armacell, global specialist in high performance insulation foams, has announced that BIM objects of Armaflex product ranges are now free to download from the NBS National BIM library.

BIM objects listed in the library include tube and sheet range products suitable for the leading Revit Building Design software and in IFC format.

With buildings consuming around 40 percent of the UK’s energy, making BIM objects available to specifiers means that Armacell is helping them achieve greater energy efficiency.

Specifiers will now be able to use the BIM objects to create realistic, intelligent 3D models of a building to capture, explore and analyse data associated with heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) within the overall design model.

The information in these models remains consistent and available to everyone involved in the project and will ultimately result in more informed decision making around the specification of high performance flexible insulation to reduce energy consumption.

“We see huge potential in being able to help specifiers visualise and digitise a building projects lifecycle,” said Mike Rust Sales & Marketing Manager at Armacell. “Our new BIM objects will allow rapid and meaningful energy analysis at the very early design stages and that will result in a huge potential to drive through greater energy efficiency over the entire building lifecycle.”

The full list of products available from the NBS National BIM library includes; AF/Armaflex Class O, Armaflex Ultima low smoke insulation, Armaflex Tuffcoat for mechanical protection and HT/Armaflex high temperature insulation for process applications.
