Leviat creates timesaving BIM Plugin for HALFEN FPA
Leviat has launched a BIM Plugin for its Halfen FPA-5 Panel Anchors for concrete façades. Available from the Tekla Warehouse, the BIM Plugin enables quick and easy placing of the FPA Anchor and reduces modelling time by 50% compared to other tools.
Used to anchor concrete façade panels to a concrete structure, the Halfen FPA-5 system is available in load groups 5.0 – 56 kN and offers installers excellent adjustability in all directions. The new plugin tool allows instant detailing of this system in the BIM environment using the geometry of Tekla. The position of anchors is easily adjusted, as are the anchor dimensions to suit different cavity widths and offsets.
Leviat’s digital engineering tools include plugins, BIM objects and design and calculation software. Leviat was formed in 2020 when CRH construction accessories companies came together as a single global organisation. It is the home of Ancon, HALFEN, Plaka, and other trusted product brands.
