Kolbe adds Ultra TerraSpan Lift and Slide Doors’ Revit models

A Growing Library of 1,000+ Two- and Three-Dimensional Window and Door models

Wausau, Wis. (Nov. 2010) – Kolbe has added its Ultra TerraSpan® Lift and Slide doors’ Revit® models to its collection of 1,000+ two- and three-dimensional window and door models.

The new 3-D model illustrates a four-panel stacking door with flush-mount sill, one of Kolbe’s most popular TerraSpan product choices. Promoting a visual and physical connection with the surrounding environment, Ultra TerraSpan Lift and Slide doors are ideally suited to capture the views, natural light, fresh air and outdoor experience for hotel guests, restaurant patrons, storefront shoppers and homeowners. The doors’ digital models and environmental attributes also support projects pursuing green goals including ENERGY STAR®, Green Globes™, and the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® Rating System™.

Kolbe’s easy-to-use models can be managed and manipulated to link with external data sources allowing users to instantly compile quantity takeoffs. Users customize the width, height, panel width, wall offset and other features of these Ultra TerraSpan Lift and Slide door Revit models. Along with these models and its Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools, Kolbe provides design professionals with free webinars on effectively using its Revit® and Google™ SketchUp models to expedite architectural project details.
