WHAT IS ORANGE BUTTON®?
Built by firestop specialists, ORANGE BUTTON® is a firestop BIM design software that runs clash detection, identifies penetrations and automatically finds firestop solutions in BIM.
Additionally, integrated advices are included in the BIM firestop design that our ORANGE BUTTON® software automatically generates. These advices include aperture size, drywall assembly and installation support system. The integration of these advices in the BIM firestop design enable us to reduce costs and enhance quality of the fitting of fire-stopping on construction site.

HOW ORANGE BUTTON® WORKS
FORWARD BIM FILES
Forward your BIM files – preferably in Revit – to Orange Button International B.V.
We perform a check based on the present information in your BIM and process the missing information in a clear checklist.
You process the missing information in BIM as specified by our checklist.
We determine a price for the BIM firestop design.
If agreed, you confirm the order for BIM firestop design.
PUSH THE BUTTON
We push the ORANGE BUTTON® and generate the BIM firestop design with the “ADVICE” & “REMARKS”.
You deliberate and – in due time – process the optimization in BIM as indicated by our “ADVICE” & “REMARKS”.
PUSH THE BUTTON AGAIN
We push the ORANGE BUTTON® again and finalize the BIM firestop design.
AFFORDABLE, QUALITY FIRESTOP SYSTEMS USING SMART AND INNOVATIVE BIM DESIGN SOFTWARE
Your Building Information Model (BIM) has to comply to some playing rules if you optimally want to benefit our in-house BIM firestop design software. One of these playing rules implies to process the fire rating (“fire resistance period” or “FRP”) in the Architectural and Structural model.
The quality of your BIM is important if you optimally want to benefit from our ORANGE BUTTON® BIM firestop design software. In order to use ORANGE BUTTON® correctly, it is necessary to process a minimum of required information in your BIM. The responsibility of correctly specifying and processing information in BIM lies with the designing parties of the Structural, Architectural, Mechanical and Electrical model.
The instruction videos below provide all explanations on how this important information should be specified and processed using Autodesk Revit software.
FIRE RATING (“FIRE RESISTANCE PERIOD”) IN THE STRUCTURAL MODEL
Below video explains how the fire rating (“fire resistance period” or “FRP”) should be specified and processed correctly in the Structural Model in accordance with the BIM basic Information Delivery Manual (IDM).
FIRE RATING (“FIRE RESISTANCE PERIOD”) IN THE ARCHITECTURAL MODEL
Below video explains how the fire rating (“fire resistance period” or “FRP”) should be specified and processed correctly in the Architectural Model in accordance with the BIM basic Information Delivery Manual (IDM).
ORANGE BUTTON® FRP CONTENT LIBRARY
The ORANGE BUTTON® FRP CONTENT library is specifically developed and designed to process the fire rating (“fire resistance period” or “FRP”) in an alternative way in the Structural and Architectural model. This alternative way of specifying the fire rating (“fire resistance period” or “FRP”) for ORANGE BUTTON® prefers to work with this ORANGE BUTTON® FRP CONTENT library.

LOADING ORANGE BUTTON® FRP CONTENT IN BIM
The ORANGE BUTTON® FRP CONTENT library is made available to process the fire rating (“fire resistance period” “FRP”) in an alternative way in the Structural and Architectural model. You can choose two different alternative methods of specifying.
BIM DESIGN WORKFLOW
ORANGE BUTTON® is more than just one push of a button. A well-structured BIM design workflow is of great importance to guarantee the quality of the fire-stopping being installed on construction site. We subdivided our BIM design process in a “CHECKLIST PHASE”,”QUOTATION PHASE”, “ENGINEERINGPHASE” and “SOLUTIONS PHASE”. These phases are further described below.
