Spodak Denal Office - Movable glass partition system by Hufcor

Hufcor Inc. has launched new BIM Revit families for our GA1/GA2 Series acoustic glass wall movable partitions. These dynamic Revit families allow you to simply click and flex acoustically rated glass wall partitions into your projects. These Hufcor Revit families will automatically calculate and display storage closet minimum dimensions, specifically based on your partition opening sizes and options chosen, including pocket doors. If you need to make a change to the number of panels or ceiling height, the Hufcor Revit families will automatically adjust within manufacturing limits, without the need to download other separate families.

Hufcor new GA1/GA2 Series BIM Revit families can adjust minimum clearance dimensions to account for accessories like pivot access doors and hardware. In addition, the families allow you to select bottom seal types – either sweeps or mechanical – and automatically calculates manufacturing limitations with each.

To view a short demonstration by Hufcor’s BIM Designer, Craig Gibeaut, watch this short video for the highlights of the new acoustic glass wall content:

The Revit families are designed to be 1MB or less for utmost functionality. The Hufcor Revit file sizes are small compared to other available content and easier to work within your overall models. Also, the Hufcor Revit families are designed with manufacturing limits built in so to reduce “breaking” while placing your Hufcor partition objects. For example, if you choose a GA2 Series paired acoustical glass panel system, yet enter an opening height greater than the manufacturing limit, the Hufcor intuitive Revit family will limit the actual height of the family.

Hufcor’s Revit families include all of the available track options for both paired and omni-directional stacking configurations, including Hufcor’s patented Unispan self-supporting track system. To learn more about the benefits of the Unispan system, click here.

The Revit objects are easy to add accessories like window tinting or graphics. And, frame color selections are embedded within the selections to help render the most realistic models.

The Science of Sound Part VII: Beating Flanking Paths

The first step to beating flanking paths is to look at how all of the elements work together from floor to roof-the partition, the space between the ceiling and the roof, the floor, even HVAC ductwork can help or hinder flanking paths.

The Science of Sound Part VI: Flanking Paths

Shoddy construction, customary construction practices, or poor installation of the partition can all contribute to the leaks, known as flanking paths.
