This new KLEIN+ clamp is able to fasten onto a greater surface area and can support larger, heavier glass panels, without the need for any floor tracks or for drilling the glass. It was important to us to conserve our characteristic elements of minimalism and total transparency, regardless of the size of these new applications. And we achieved that.
The system's integrated KSC-Klein Soft Closing mechanism has also been adapted to this new context. Its efficiency is more than clear: the new ROLLGLASS+ 150 KSC and UNIKGLASS+ 150 KSC systems are IFT-Rosenheim tested to 100,000 cycles and come with a five-year warranty, just like the rest of the KLEIN® line.
Our goal is for you to be able to integrate even more stunning frameless glass applications into your projects, with even greater passageways that are completely clear of architectural barriers.Let’s take a closer look at the options available to you, keeping in mind the formula we use to calculate the weight of the glass:
(Height (m) x Width (m) x Thickness (mm) x 2.5) = Weight (kg)
According to this template, and taking into account the standard height of each system, you can achieve the following passageways:
Let’s also keep in mind that both ROLLGLASS+ 150 KSC and UNIKGLASS+ 150 KSC are designed to support 12-mm glass only. We hope you will embrace these two new systems with the same enthusiasm that we have put to use to design them for you, and that you’ll send us photos of projects where they contribute to optimizing interior spaces.

A CCDI BIM consulting company, based in Shanghai, China, with 16 years experience.
BIM continues its strong growth in the world of AEC in Canada and the United States. One of the challenges at the core of BIM is the optimisation of processes, especially those related to BIM objects and data. GRAITEC, international developer of BIM software for the design, simulation, manufacturing and management of data in the AEC industry, Gold Partner in the US and Canada, is pleased to announce the signing of an exclusive partnership with BIM&CO. This partnership aims to market and implement OnFly in North America.
OnFly is the solution that manages, centralises and harmonises BIM objects and data, the BIM project components, in order to accelerate the design of BIM models and to facilitate their update.
Aimed at all actors in a construction project, from the customer to the facilities manager, through the architects, engineers, contractors and manufacturers of building products, the BIM&CO OnFly solution fits perfectly into the GRAITEC BIMup service offer. Hugo Michaud, GRAITEC director states: "This OnFly partnership could not have arrived at a better time. When we support companies in their BIM implementation or optimisation of processes, we need solutions such as OnFly to solve issues related to the management of families, updating model data, customer requirements, etc… It is about saving time for our customers. With OnFly, we not only aid collaboration between teams, but also between partners and their suppliers."
Based on its unique data harmonisation technology, BIM&CO has international and state-of-the-art BIM customers such as ENGIE and GA Smart Building. BIM&CO allows its customers to fully benefit from the value of BIM. As a global player, BIM&CO operates in Paris, Bologna, Madrid, Singapore and Montreal, and more widely through its distributors. "We are delighted to have GRAITEC as a partner; this allows us to continue building a community of specialists to closely support our clients with their issues" states Philippe Joron, VP Sales of BIM&CO.
Founded in 1986, GRAITEC has established itself in the construction market as a provider of high-value BIM solutions for design, calculation, simulation and manufacturing, and as the third largest global Autodesk® partner in Europe and North America. Operating through 45 agencies in 11 countries around the world, the GRAITEC mission is to support the digital transformation of its customers by offering software, consulting and training solutions in the BIM domain. With 500 employees, including more than 200 BIM consultants, GRAITEC is focused on innovation, and its products are used by more than 500,000 construction professionals around the world.

Specialized in wood solutions, especially in floor coverings such as parquet flooring and laminate flooring, FINSA has been a leader for over 80 years in Spain and Europe.
"FINSA has managed to evolve without losing its essence. Now we are ready to take on new challenges" - FINSA has indeed applied this motto as it was most definitely the manufacturer who made the choice to move to BIM. The thirst for innovation and the views of its customers have convinced the Spanish company to take the plunge: "We are aware of the difficulties encountered by the various experts during each phase of a construction project. We quickly realized that BIM was a methodology that, thanks to the information available in the digital model, facilitated collaborative management of architectural projects." explains Emma Romero Brey, Prescription Manager at FINSA.
In order to ensure the relevance of the objects created, BIM&CO offers manufacturers a private space in which a first prototype object is subjected to analysis by business experts. This space has a discussion area allowing everyone to provide their point of view on the accuracy, usefulness and quality of the object. During the FINSA modeling project, the Luis Vidal + Architects agency, the Implanta architecture agency and the Apogea design department contributed to the development of the first object. Once everyone agreed, additional items were created. "This progressive approach has enabled us to both discern the relevant information and data to be integrated into BIM objects, correlated with the needs of professionals involved in each phase of the project, and to interact directly with users of our future objects. A method that we thought was essential and perfectly adapted to our digital transformation," comments Emma Romero Brey.
BIM&CO’s strategy is to accompany the manufacturer in their transition to BIM, giving them the keys to their own autonomy. Through tools to structure, manage and share their data, manufacturers can publish BIM Ready objects, adapted to all stages of the BIM process, from design to construction, operation and maintenance. By publishing its products according to the Spanish local classification GuBIMClass, but also to international classifications such as Masterformat, Uniformat or Omniclass - thanks to the interoperability system developed by BIM&CO - FINSA guarantees the visibility and use of its objects.
"BIM&CO’s unique feature is to offer greater flexibility in the management and publication of its BIM objects, while allowing the manufacturer to easily reach its target clientele by providing them with a real value-added service. With BIM&CO, the manufacturer also has the opportunity to develop their BIM skills by progressively transferring skills in-house: this is what convinced FINSA to work with our teams," explains Muriel Bourgeay, Country Manager Spain at BIM&CO.
