The professional installation of windows is described in detail in the "Guideline for installation of windows and external pedestrian doors for new buildings and renovations". However, the implementation of installation situations and building connections is complex and time-consuming.
This is where the proven, free "ift-Installation tool" online software comes in. Now there are English-language versions of guidelines and planners for internationally active window manufacturers, system providers, planners, fitters and craftsmen for professional planning of window installation in terms of building physics.
Every window expert has seen fitters and window manufacturers arguing with architects or builders about the professional execution of the installation on the construction site. General rules and pattern details are of little help here, because small structural changes often have a major effect on building physics.
That is why ift Rosenheim developed the ift-Installation tool several years ago, which is now also available in English. This enables international processors, planners and fitters to simplify the planning process and to carry out professional planning of window installation in terms of building physics.
The program is available both in a product-neutral ift version and in company-specific portal versions with direct ordering options for tested and ift-certified products. After the product selection (wall construction/material, window material/profile, sealing/fixing system, etc.) and the selection of the dimensions, a calculation of building physics values of the building body connection is carried out in real time using the calculation program WinIso validated by ift.
Use is free of charge and takes place after registration online at www.ift-montageplaner.de/ift. With just a few clicks, fabricators, planners and fitters can create an ift assembly pass as a PDF file on a PC or Tablet PC, which enables and confirms professional structural-physical planning of window installation. This saves both time and costs and ensures quality.
The basis for the ift installation planner is the "Guideline for installation of windows and pedestrian doors for new buildings and renovations", which is available in German, English, Romanian, Polish and Chinese language (www.ift-rosenheim.de/shop/guideline-for-installation-of-windows-and-external-pedestrian-doors).
