Sayfa is now Kattsafe

We’ve built a name for ourselves by continuously innovating safer, simpler height access and fall protection systems, and now it’s time for our business to evolve too.

Bringing everything we do under one new name makes it even simpler to work with us and use our products. And behind it all, we’re still the same team, quality products, and customer service that you’ve come to expect.

This video is intended to serve as an overview of the Revit componentry that we at IGS BIM Solutions have created for SAYFA to represent their anchor point content.

So just jumping to the AP100 Anchors product page, you’ll see that we have a range of different applications here from timber mount, purlin mount and concrete mount anchors, and these have all been created as native Revit families and I’ve just got a section of the virtual showroom file here, open on screen, and you’ll notice that we have all of the families and their inherent types pre placed ready for copying and pasting into your project.

So as mentioned, because these are standardised in terms of sizing and geometry, there’s no real requirement or ability to change the dimensions of many of these elements so you would just select the appropriate type from within the family. So in this scenario we have a 3SIXTY Top mount anchor, which we have the ability to choose a top hat, universal or wide deck component. In terms of placing, these are work plane based, which gives us the ability to place on a work plane, so a level or a named reference plane within our project. Alternatively, we can place it on any face in our project. So if I have a sloping roof like over here, I can place it on the face, which is a good option in this scenario, because as the as the slope of the roof adjusts, the angle of the anchor point element will dynamically adjust itself to satisfy the roof slope.

We do have some functionality in terms of adjusting the offset, so manufacturer height from FFL parameter here can control the vertical offset from the hosting face or work plane rather. There are some examples such as the concrete mount chemfix anchor here, which is suitable for vertical or horizontal or sloped installation, in which case that same parameter has been renamed as host offset just to avoid confusion. And this will do the same thing where we’re essentially able to push the anchor point out from that reference point or face or work plane.

One I suppose, exception to the idea of not having too much parametric control over these elements is the through bolts. So if I were to just come to a section view here. So this one obviously has this additional parameter called structure thickness, because this anchor is designed to fix onto the top and bottom of the slab element or roof. We have this parameter in here called structure thickness, where I’m able to specify the thickness of the hosting element and you’ll notice that the geometry adjusts. So we do have some smarts built in where if we exceed the limitations of the real world product, it’s going to validate to be as large as it can go. So in this case, it doesn’t matter what I put beyond that maximum value, it’s going to default to the maximum value.

And finally, we have the timber mount anchors over here. So similarly, I can place on face and it is probably recommended to go place on face with these because we’re able to easily select the top of our structural framing member. If I come to a plan view, just delete that one quickly, and we can align the outside face of that beam to this timber face reference and I might lock that into place, just so if this beam moves, so too will the element. And coming back in here. The advantage of that is if this were to change its slope. So if I apply it 250 and level offset, you’ll notice that the slope adjusts on the element itself. So that’s an overview of the anchor point content.

As with any of the other SAYFA components, we do have the PDF user guide that is accompanying all of the objects, so feel free to use that or to get in touch with any questions or recommendations.
