ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions has launched a video showcasing the possibilities BIM software offers in creating and visualising openings for complete door, frame and hardware schedules and specifications, enabling the golden thread of information.

Openings Studio integrates with design software, meaning door assets can be designed, priced, manufactured, installed, inspected, and maintained from the same data, ensuring a seamless and transparent connection from design intent through to product in service.

This time and cost saving application ensures compliance, giving peace of mind. There’s the option to create door solutions from scratch, or select from a customised library, making it simple to create modifications to meet project specific standards.

Door solutions can be exported with ease through various types of reports in PDF, Microsoft Excel and Word formats. During construction, submittals can be reviewed, and materials can be tracked for ordering and delivery.

What’s more, Requests for Information (RFIs) can be officially logged and managed, and directives can be changed. Cut sheets and installation guides are also housed within the programme.

Ideal for both new construction and existing openings, Openings Studio also allows facilities managers to have a single point of reference to inspect, record, maintain, and service doors, hardware, and access control systems.

Brian Sofley, managing director at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK & Ireland, explains: “Managing door projects in traditional spreadsheet programmes can be extremely inefficient and ineffective, with limited ability to share that information easily.

“Openings Studio™ streamlines communication in the estimation, specification, ordering and delivering process, making sharing information effortless. Workflow and door projects are digitalised and all the door information is stored in the cloud, allowing it to be securely accessed from anywhere in the world via a desktop computer smartphone or tablet.

“This is a gamechanger for building owners, facilities managers, contractors, locksmiths, distributors, consultants and more.”
