National BIM Library adds six new Actis Hybrid systems to its portfolio

Sustainability Thu, Aug 1, 2019 9:53 AM

Half a dozen Actis Hybrid BIM systems – three for timber frame walls and three for pitched roofs – have been created in the NBS National BIM library.

These are available in addition to the existing individual product files covering every thickness of insulation Hybris, vapour control layer HControl Hybrid and breather membrane BoostR Hybrid.

The six new systems combine build-ups, depending on the system, cladding, battens, sheathing, structural timber, air cavities, plasterboard, Hybris, BoostR Hybrid and HControl Hybrid.

The wall and roof systems come in HH, HB and HY variants – shorthand for all three Hybrid products or just Hybris and BoostR Hybrid, or Hybris and HControl Hybrid. They offer a complete, ready to use build up for easy inclusion into the Revit software platform. In addition they can be downloaded in IFC format.

The arrival of the CE marked Actis Hybrid range build ups in the virtual library should be invaluable to specifiers wanting to create highly insulated, airtight buildings which will meet the most onerous energy performance requirements.

In addition to enabling 3D ‘real life’ representations of the finished project and its intervening stages, the integrated BIM system enables specifiers to anticipate errors, design issues and clashes long before they would have occurred using older Computer Aided Design technology.
