Gartec Lift BIM Objects

We know how useful BIM objects can be for your lift specifications, so we have created a selection of configurations for our 5000, 7000 and 9000 platform lifts, ready to drop straight into your drawings in IFC or REVIT file types – also available on the NBS specification website. If you need any other lift configurations, just get in touch with our team on 01296 397100.

Technical Data

All measurements are contained within the Gartec platform lift BIM objects. Please keep the folder containing data together as this provides information when the object is dropped into your drawing.

What is BIM?

The National BIM Library describes a BIM object as follows:

“A BIM (Building Information Modelling) object is a combination of many things:

It is detailed information that defines the product and geometry that represents the product’s physical characteristics. The visualisation data that gives the object a recognizable appearance and behavioural data, such as detection zones, enables the object to be positioned or to behave in exactly the same way as the product itself. There are two primary types of object: component and layered. The component objects are building products that have fixed geometrical shapes such as windows, doors, boilers etc. Layered objects are building products that do not have a fixed shape or size such as carpets, roofing, walls and ceilings.”
