Quick and easy access to Hörmann product information
The Hörmann Architecture Consultation department provides planners with recommended solutions for the design and development of projects. The co-operation between consultants and architects is particularly effective in the early stages of project development as the early exchange can lead to the conceptualization of special solutions in co-operation with the Hörmann factories. The architects' program from Hörmann, which contains a comprehensive compilation of all product information, plays a major role in this process. The latest version, 8.0, includes all Hörmann products and has an even more user-friendly design.
The new version was made available to architects and planners in mid-January to facilitate their work with detailed specifications and tender texts. They can now quickly and conveniently access drawing files, technical details and individual tender texts. The new version was introduced at the BAU 2015 trade fair, offering technical innovations as well as more information on around 660 Hörmann products as well as approximately 8000 drawings. With the help of a drop-down menu, users can access the required product from the various product ranges of industrial door systems, garage doors and operators, fire and smoke-protection, frames, project and residential construction. The drawings are available as DXF/DWG files as well as in PDF format. The database contains several thousand drawings that can be easily used for further processing in CAD programs. Tender texts are exported in the GEAB format or as word documents.
The revised Hörmann architects' program is particularly user-friendly as it can be executed without any installation process or administrator rights. The application can be launched directly from a data carrier that can be ordered from Hörmann. In addition, the architects' program is also available for download from the Hörmann homepage as either a complete version including all technical information and graphics, or as a basic version containing only text. A new fourth variation has also been introduced recently. With a limited download volume and through direct access to the Hörmann server, this program version offers the entire contents of the full version updated on a daily basis.
Version 8.0 operates on all standard versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system. An English-language version of the architects' program is also being prepared and will become available in Spring 2015.
