Which Industrial Doors are hosted on BIM?

BIM (building information modelling) has been changing the way that architects and planners work for decades. In 2016, the use of BIM has been made mandatory in the public sector and amount of take-up is increasing in the private sector. For instance, research undertaken by the National Building Specification (NBS) shows that adoption of BIM by the private sector increased 13% in 2010 to 54% in 2015. So, while the use of BIM is growing across the construction industry, it’s vital that architects and contractors know which HAG products are available on BIM.


If you were to navigate to our profile on the NBS website right now, you’d find dozens of our products listed with full object specifications and commonly recommended uses. There are a number of industrial doors which can be added to your project for the construction or redevelopment of an industrial unit or site, ranging in size and type.

Overhead sectional doors are an integral aspect of many industrial units, allowing for easy access for goods and machinery. HAG’s vertical and standard track overhead sectional doors cover spaces both with sufficient headroom and those in need of a curved track for spaces with reduced headroom. This ensures there is a HAG option on BIM for all industrial loading and docking requirements.

Equally, HAG’s best-selling steel doors, ideal for industrial purposes, are available on BIM to insert into your projects and plans. For instance, the Armourdoor Fire Exit Steel Door AD10 fulfils fire regulations with single and double widths available. If your industrial environment needs secure doors with ventilation, for instance, our Armourdoor Louvred Steel Door AD30 can be found on BIM.

Specific industrial functions can be accommodated on BIM using HAG products. Our high speed vertical rolling door can be used internally or externally to ensure temperature retention, while our Bi-Folding Industrial Q Door is ideal for industrial functions as well as public sector uses. The variety of HAG products offered in BIM allows architects and planners to choose our quality industrial products within this growing industry modelling framework.

HAG is proud to have adopted BIM within our range. We recognise that, not only is it of paramount importance to move with the times and utilise this vital technology, it is also crucial to many of our clients that our specifications are accessible through BIM.
