Fletcher Window and Door Systems' updated resource

Design Resource tool for doors and windows


In these days of instant communication and innovative computer technology we expect to have information right at our fingertips.

Design specifications for building products are no exception. And it is this requirement that has resulted in the updated Design Resource online tool from Fletcher Window and Door Systems of Fletcher Aluminium, a company that has been serving the industry for more than 60 years.

Marketing manager Ronnie Pocock says the improvements to the website are the result of insightful feedback.

"The Design Resource is now much easier to use – there is no need to log in and the navigation has been simplified. And it is much more informative, with a wealth of additional product information. Products are broken down into eight identifiable categories, which makes it easier and quicker to filter more than 6500 CAD details, and any other information you may require."

New features and benefits provided by the upgrade include the addition of Revit® and Building Information Modelling (BIM) details for commercial applications. These include practical Revit details, not commonly seen on other websites. The Design Resource also provides CAD details to support traditional documentation processes, BIM methodologies and 3-D applications.


"This results in increased accuracy, which saves both time and money," says Pocock.

An Add-to-Cart function can be used to collect and save relevant files for a convenient single zipped download. This is designed to make files easy to access and forward. Alternatively, details can be dragged and dropped directly from the site.

Other changes include product summaries of the Fletcher commercial and residential suites, with cutaway sections and listed features. The Design Resource has also been expanded to include Oakley Commercial systems, which have been upgraded for improved seismic performance and cross platform integration. These include curtain wall, flush glaze and shopfront applications.
