Design fire sprinkler systems quickly and easily using a BIM workflow in a Revit® MEP model

Fire Sprinklers makes the design and routing of fire protection systems in Revit efficient. Automated real-time updating when changes are made to the project ensures that you’ll get accurate bills of materials and work drawings for on-site assembly.

The software incorporates NFPA, AU, and ISO standards and can accommodate any others. Simple yet highly flexible rules are used to distribute sprinkler heads instantly throughout a current or linked Revit model with the clash tolerance you specify. It also properly sizes system pipes and automatically connects them based on the visually-depicted routing option you choose.

The included MEP Hangers functionality enables instant, large-scale insertion of hangers and supports for accurate on-site assembly of sprinkler system pipes. We also recommend the separate Cut Opening solution to easily create openings with fire safety components where pipes intersect with walls, floors, roofs, ceilings, beams, and columns.

CARATTERISTICHE DEL MODULO

  • Easily distribute Sprinkler Heads in accordance to the coverage area
  • Choose the best routing of your system by visually-depicted routing options
  • Pre-calculate pipe diameters to meet national or company standards
  • Modify fire protection system at any stage of your project
  • Run clash analysis between different parts of fire protection system and other elements in the model

Fire Sprinklers is a powerful BIM solution for wet and dry fire protection systems suited for standards in any region.

Pre-set or custom rules let you place sprinkler heads throughout Revit models, connect them to distribution pipes based on visually-depicted routing options, pre-calculate pipe diameters, and more.

  • Fire Sprinklers Revit extension lets you plan sprinkler's location in a BIM model | AGACADEasily distribute Sprinkler Heads in accordance to the coverage area
  • Choose the best routing of your system by visually-depicted routing options
  • Pre-calculate pipe diameters to meet national or company standards
  • Modify fire protection system at any stage of your project
  • Run clash analysis between different parts of fire protection system and other elements in the model

Fire Sprinklers software makes for easy planning of sprinkler locations in a BIM model with real-time interference checking. Plus it automatically routes pipes from sprinklers to distribution pipes per user-predefined rules.

This BIM solution lets you choose between visually displayed routing options. Compatible for fire protection design work anywhere in the world, as it incorporates NFPA, ISO, and AU standards. Fire Sprinklers application for Revit is exclusive for its automatic system connection. Using this product you will be able to work with sprinkler fire protection systems all the way from sprinkler head distribution through to pipe size selection.


Ideal for:
MEP Engineers, Fire Protection System designers →Distribute and connect sprinklers into fire protection system with appropriate routings and pre-calculate diameters

New Revit® users →Easier creation of fire sprinkler systems than using simple Revit tools

Experienced BIM Managers → Additional tools that Revit does not has | Control of BIM model and clash detection

Contractors → Receive more accurate and detailed building model and builders work drawings

Powerful features:

COLLABORATION

Possible to work with linked files

Integrated clash detection between parts of fire protection system and the whole model

EFFICIENCY

Quick distribution of sprinkler heads

Connection of elements by predefined routing saves up to 3x the time used per project compared to working in plain Revit

Pre-calculate pipe diameters inside of Revit. No need to export data to external calculation machines!

COMPLIANCE

Model elements are active after distribution

Possibility to adapt pre-calculations to any standard


Our Fire Sprinklers add-on extends design and calculation possibilities for designers using Autodesk Revit. This BIM tool lets you automatically distribute sprinkler elements in a space, connect all elements into one hydraulic system using specially programmed configurations, and size pipes according to different standards, which may be modified according to your needs.

Element distribution is based on predefined, adjustable parameters. The solution has integrated routing preferences for all possible distribution variants, and those layouts are depicted graphically for better understanding. Calculations of pipe sizes are based on flow limits.

BIM Software for Fire Protection Design and Integration

Fire Sprinklers provides a set of tools for MEP engineering process and data analysis. It is useful for MEP engineers and sprinkler fire protection system designers who work under different standards (ex. ISO, NFPA, AS). This software automatically makes head placement maps and layouts for each zone, and analyses the whole pipe system.

Fire Sprinklers solution has integrated clash detection functionality that allows finding interference in a space between element types or the whole fire protection system.

Time-saving features

  • Allows designers to quickly distribute sprinklers in the BIM model with a real time interference checking.

  • Possibility to define coverage area of sprinklers and minimum distance to walls.

  • Automatically routs pipe from sprinklers to the distribution pipes.

  • Works with Upright and Pendant sprinkler types.

 

  • Customizable routing rules allow connecting sprinkler directly to taps or fittings (ex. BlazeMaster® fittings). There is a possibility to make predefined sprinkler pipe length.

  • Customizable routing rules allow user to choose connections from the most popular connections all over the world.

  • Automatically pre-calculates diameters for range and distribution pipes by different standards (ISO, AS, NFPA, etc). Our solution is using .txt files, where user can describe pipe diameter in accordance to number of sprinklers connected in a row. Please find this bellow:

 

  • Automatically pre-calculates constant diameters of range pipes in consideration of total number of sprinklers on a range.

  • Values of default parameters for sprinkler planning, pipe sizing and pipe routing types: “Sprinkler-to-Range Pipe”, “Range Pipe-to-Distribution Pipe” are based on standards of ISO, AS, NFPA, etc.
  • Default parameters are easily customizable by building and saving different routing and sizing configurations.
