Escape doors

Based on the standards for escape doors (EN 179) and panic doors (EN 1125), LogiKal provides you ingenious utilities that enable you to comply with the legal requirements – without a great deal of extra effort.

Thanks to the advanced settings for leaf types, you can easily define closing functions and opening directions. For better visualisation, the corresponding escape door symbol is shown in the position drawing. In the cross section drawing, a green arrow indicates the direction in which the escape door opens.

Escape doors and fire protection elements must always be monitored by an external institute. LogiKal can also help you with this issue. In the global preferences, you will find input options in the CE area in which the test institute performing the test can be selected and the certificate number entered. This data is automatically included in performance declarations and CE markings.

New user permission: Change material determination

The new user permission ‘Change settings for material determination estimation’ allows a user to view and modify the material determination options for an estimation dataset.

This can be necessary when materials are ordered different from the original estimation settings (e.g. if a bulk price list is used, filling and alternative articles)

The ability to view and edit the estimation or the estimation data is excluded.

When a user has assigned the ‘Estimation’ permission, the user will have access to both – the estimation data and the material determination options.

Permission can be assigned in the project centre in the file menu under ‘Settings’ > ‘Users’
