Key calculations ‘at the press of a button’
A ‘time-saving tool’ to help professionals tackle complex calculations for the design of window systems has been launched by GEZE UK. WinCalc 2.0 is an online specification platform that allows users to populate design and specification data to identify and plan suitable window configurations. Targeted at architects, architectural ironmongers, fabricators, mechanical and electrical companies, and consultants, it can be used to calculate requirements for both manual and electric window drives for natural ventilation, smoke and heat extraction, and SHEVs (smoke and heat exhaust ventilation systems), and to design the most appropriate emergency power control unit while incorporating calculations for cable cross-sections and planning.
WinCalc 2.0 can be used on computers or tablet devices, has a new user interface with advanced calculation options and a shortened calculation methodology, and provides a range of downloadable information, including calculation reports, bills of materials, and diagrams which can be saved in pdf format.
GEZE UK said: “The platform minimises the volume of data to be calculated and delivers faster results, temporarily saves the last project, so that the next time that it is opened, the most recent project can be selected, and is highly flexible; it can be used in different browsers including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.”
