BIM for fire control panels

Notifier has added digital content models of its ONYX series fire alarms


Notifier has added digital content models of its ONYX Series fire alarm control panels for architects, engineers, and consultants using BIM to create digital models of a building's design and construction. Notifier’s Drawings Webpage of BMP graphics, SXF, and DWG CAD drawings and BIM models experiences an average of 3,100 downloads per month. Traditionally, the design and placement of all elements involved in a building's construction have been drafted in static, 2-D drawings using CAD software. To create a virtual, 3-D mock-up of a building, BIM pulls information (digital content models) from a database on the properties of each building component. The results of BIM are better estimations, collaboration, and construction accuracy combined with reduced rework in the field.
