Viking Unveils New Revit® Toolbar for Fire Protection Systems
Caledonia, MI, U.S.A. - The Viking Corporation, a global leader in fire protection and life safety systems, announced today the release of “Viking Tools for Revit®,” an innovative suite of Revit® add-ins dedicated to the design of fire protection systems. Revit, from Autodesk®, is multidisciplinary BIM software used by building design professionals to produce consistent, coordinated, and complete model-based building designs and documentation. Fire protection professionals can now leverage Viking’s tools to develop more efficient and accurate workflows in Revit.
Included in the complimentary toolbar is Viking’s all-new Revit® family library and other valuable tools and utilities for the design of fire sprinkler, foam fire protection, and clean agent fire suppression systems. These tools include a sprinkler spacing utility, integrated sprinkler selection tool, clean agent manifold generator, and foam grate nozzle connector.
A key component of the new Viking toolbar is the “Clean Agent Assistant” (CAA) application, which enables the design and calculation of a clean agent suppression system within Revit. The helpful CAA wizard walks the user through the necessary design steps including calculating the amount of agent and supply cylinders, auto-generating a manifold, placing nozzles, and drawing system piping. At the end of the CAA design process, a detailed project summary is provided including all calculation outputs and a complete bill of material for the clean agent system.
