How to Load Keltech Revit Family Using A Revit Family Catalog

Some Revit Keltech tankless water heater families include a Revit family catalog file (*.txt). All of them have a Clearance Box object. (The Revit Clearance Box object is defined below)

Make sure the Revit Keltech Family Catalog file (*.txt) ALWAYS remains with and in the same folder as the Revit family.

Load the the Keltech Tankless Water Heater family from the Revit Ribbon:

  • HOME Tab > Component

Next select Load Family Button in the upper right corner

When the Load Family file dialogue box pops up;

  • Navigate to your Keltech Revit Family Folder > Select the Family > Select Open

The Keltech Revit Family Type Box will pop up; showing the Keltech models in the catalog.

You may need to slide the horizontal scroll bar (right/left) at the bottom of the dialog box, to see all the parameter columns for each Revit Type.

Select one or several Keltech models by holding down the CTRL Key and selecting the models (in the Type Column) you wish to load into your project.

  • Enclosed Safety Showers - Eye\Face Wash Systems

The Keltech Revit Model Library is located in the Bradley Revit Library (1,000 models).

Benefits of Tankless Water Heating Applications

Save Money

Easy installation means lower labor cost. A small footprint means less square footage needed for utilities. Lower energy use and less maintenance mean lower utility and maintenance costs over the life of the product.

Save Energy

Inefficient boiler systems have to generate heat and maintain temperature 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Keltech tankless heaters only heat water when needed. And, Keltech's innovative controller is fully modulating so you only use the actual kW needed, not full power or stages.

Save Space

A large commercial tank water heater requires a large space. Keltech tankless water heaters only require 3 square feet (.3 square meters) of space to generate 491,000 BTUs.

Simple Installation

Requires only one electrical connection and water. No pumps, no external fusing, and no design needs to be considered externally - it's all built into the heater.

Simple to Maintain

No tank to maintain, no anodes, no softeners.

Download Enclosed Safety Shower Revit Family | Clearance Box-SubCategory

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Apr 4, 2017 9:25:00 AM

Bradley features Revit familes for the Enclosed Safety Showers in the Bradley Emergency Fixture Revit Family Library.Bradley ESS units feature emergency eye/face wash and drench showers; that include hot water heating units to meet tepid water standards.

The Bradley Enclosed Safety Shower Revit family components feature a semi-transparent, lightly shaded "clearance box" box. Dashed red lines appear in the plan and elevation views.

  1. The 3D clearance box assists with the design-construction BIM clash-interference detection and coordination.
  2. It helps the designer to design the space with adequate installation and maintenance clearances for this movable equipment.

A Revit subcategory named "Clearance" is assigned to the clearance box. It is located in the Revit View Visibility (VV or VG) dialogue box under "Plumbing Fixtures".

  • The Revit designer can toggle ON/OFF the visibility of the clearance box in the view.

The ESS Revit family has additional Revit subcategory visibility settings with the prefix of "ESS". They are also are located in the Revit View Visibility (VV or VG) dialogue box under "Plumbing Fixtures".

  1. The designer can toggle On/Off the visibility of the roof, walls and floor.
  2. This enables the designer to easily place ESS product options; Bradley Tankless Water Heaters and EFX Emergency Eyewash/Shower Revit components into the ESS cabinet.

US Accessibility Board | New ADA \ ABA Compliance Standards Videos

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Jul 23, 2014 8:59:56 AM

The United States Access Board Website continues to publish new video content to better describe the ADA \ ABA Codes & Compliance Standards.

If "a picture is worth a thousand words" -- a video (animation) may save a thousands of words to describe an accessibility code and compliance standard.

Bradley integrates accessibility standards into our products and Revit (BIM) Model Library --as Revit Family Types to assist with various accessibility installation heights.

As a product, the Bradley Verge VLD-Series Natural Quartz Lavatory System is a potential solution for fulfilling the 'Enhanced Reach Accessibility Requirement'.

The 2009 ICC/ANSI Standards require that soap dispenser controls and faucets that serve certain accessible lavatories – larger restrooms determined by scoping such as IBC as to require an enhanced reach range – need to be installed with a reach depth of 11 inches (280mm) maximum.

Bradley incorporates "Clearance Boxes" into our Revit models; where they may assist with interference or clash detection for maintaining ADA installation heights and keeping maintenance accessibility areas clear for a product.

My thanks to Glenna Antrim, International Account Manager (Bradley) for sharing the details of Accessibility Boards' new video content.
