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 going to take a look at the Kattsafe Skylight Protectors that we at IGS BIM Solutions have created as native Revit families for SAYFA. So I'm just on the SAYFA website and going to the SP300 Skylight Protectors product page here. We can see that we have the raised, the framed and the flat options in various different sizes. So these have all been represented in the Revit environment.

We have three families in total being those three different styles, being the raised, the flat and the framed. Within those families there are the default family types which are stipulating those standard sizes that will customise automatically the size, but also the accompanying metadata in the back end of these objects. It is recommended that if you were to require a size that is not standard that you would edit the type. We do have access over the length and width in this case, but if I were to select one of the framed or the raised, we have the height as well that can be adjusted.

But it is important to note that if you were to desire a custom size that you duplicate the type and give this a unique name as well as the model number here, because we wouldn't want any confusion come scheduling time where we're specifying a standard size, but the dimensions are telling us something different. In terms of placement of these objects being workplan based, we have the option to place on face or place on work plane. So if I were to come across here where I've got this roof with a void, I can simply rotate around, use the place on face option in this case and situate this over my skylight however I would like.

Obviously we do have that ability to if we were to host to a flat roof or slab, we can use the place on work plane and that will allow us to place it on any level or named reference plane within our project. Something to point out with these objects as well is we do have this custom material that's using a image that's associated with the grill pattern. So that will need to be mapped as per the accompanying Revit user guide that we've created. The steps are outlined in that document.

But yeah, that will just allow us to add hidden lines, see a hatch pattern that simply gives us the illusion. the realistic appearance we're obviously not modelling 3D grooves in here, as that would greatly impact project performance. So we've done some material cutouts that let us give a realistic appearance but without the compromise on the performance of the project. We do have the ability as well to offset this from the hosting face or work plane via the manufacturer height from FFL.

So if we wanted to give it a vertical offset, that's entirely possible via this manufacturer height from FFL parameter. As usual, these components are loaded into the virtual showroom file as part of the greater Revit library by SAYFA, and that document will allow you to interrogate the geometry, but also the data in the background and easily let you copy and paste any of the desired components directly into your project.
