Drawing library for prescribers

Looking for official Betafence Revit / IFC drawings to create your project? Betafence’s detailed drawing library hosted on the National BIM library or BIM Objects is now available for you to use. It includes panels and associated posts which allows complete fencing system design.

Depending on your habits and or preference, you can choose whether NBS or BIM Objects library, to download your drawings. They are both updated and offer you the same large range of product details to complete your BOM and specifications.



What is an IFC Format?

This is a file model created in the Industry Foundation Classes. IFC is an open file format, used by BIM programs. This format is designed to accommodate interoperability between industry BIM Programs. The format establishes international standards to import and export building objects and their properties.

This format is maintained by buildingSMART®



What is the Revit Format?

Revit is software for BIM with tools to create intelligent 3D models of entire sites, which can be used to produce construction documentation. By utilizing BIM as opposed to computer-aided drafting (CAD), Revit Architecture is able to leverage dynamic information in intelligent models, allowing complex building structures.

This allows changes in a project made in one part of the model to be automatically propagated to other parts of the model, thus enhancing the workflow for Revit Architecture users.

Revit is a single file database that can be shared among multiple users. Its extension is .rvt


BIM in Europe

The first objective in BIM of European standardization was achieved with the adoption of the first three European Standards. Towards the end of 2016, CEN / TC 442 met in Madrid to lay the groundwork for future work on BIM standards.

Bringing together national efforts into a common and aligned European approach to develop a world-class digital construction sector.

Building Information Modeling is a process that involves the generation and management of the digital representations of built environments, complete with their physical and functional characteristics. It is considered to be currently the most impactful technological development in the construction sector today. Studies forecast that wider adoption of this process will unlock up to 25% saving for the global infrastructure market by 2025.

Not all countries have the same regulation on BIM use yet, but major players in the building industry are already using it.

Betafence, in partnership with the NBS National library, has created more than 30 drawings:

  • Panels and posts
  • Sliding and swing gates
  • Gabion walls 

From medium to high-security fencing systems, and profiled panels to high-security panels - a large range for all building specifications. 

Next to this large bank of drawings, Betafence is always committed to supporting prescriptions with specific brochures and catalogs. Check our Documentation page.
