The quality of your Building Information Model (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 Models.

The instruction videos below provide all explanations on how this important information should be specified and processed using Autodesk Revit software.


INSTALLATION OPENINGS IN FIRE RATED WALLS AND FLOORS

Below video explains why installation openings shouldn’t be physically specified and processed in fire rated walls and floors.

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).

INSULATION TYPE & THICKNESS IN THE MECHANICAL MODEL

Below video explains how the insulation type & thickness around pipes should be specified and processed correctly in the Mechanical Model.


FIREDAMPER TYPE IN THE MECHANICAL MODEL

Below video explains how the fire damper type should be specified and processed correctly in the Mechanical Model.
