3D safety software packages
22 September 2016
Combisafe has significantly increased its level of engineering support with the integration of two of the world's most advanced structural modelling systems - StruCad and Tekla - utilising the 3D environment to deliver improved safety at height solutions for even the most complex construction projects.
Combisafe can now integrate its extensive range of edge protection systems and safety at height products directly into steel fabricator's 3D models. By simply overlaying safety systems onto the client's models, this enables the automatic generation of all fixing and positioning details for the edge protection and safety systems, within one comprehensive software package.
Previously drawn in a 2D environment, Combisafe can use the 3D software to incorporate all of its safety systems onto the models, saving the client both time and money. This also allows the steel fabricator to accurately check for any interferences - such as clashes of cladding, cleats and other steel members - at the earliest possible stage. Eliminating clashes prior to the start of the fabrication process will assist Combisafe to minimise errors and reduce installation times on site.
As part of the new service, Combisafe will provide colour coded schematic drawings corresponding to pre-set equipment to make the erection process more efficient. This will enable the steel erector to follow simple plans to quickly identify the correct position of every component.
