KESSEL AG has added drains to its SmartSelect design assistant. This is because, no matter whether it concerns the bathroom, cellar, a commercial premises, a multi-storey car park, the outdoors or even on the roof – no drainage product is used in as many different places as drains. The KESSEL design assistant for drains makes it possible to configure the right solution for each specific installation situation in the shortest possible time – design made fast, easy and safe. SmartSelect can be used directly in your internet browser at any time and from any end device without any installation necessary. “The requirements and application cases for drain technology are diverse, meaning that there are numerous products and configurations to choose from,” explains Reinhard Späth, Marketing Manager at KESSEL. “With our intuitive SmartSelect design assistant, we make it easier to put together the details in just a few, simple steps, while ensuring maximum safety and efficiency during the design and implementation of your drainage technology.” You can find the free design assistant at www.kessel.com/smartselect.
Designing the right drain in three easy steps
When starting out in the design phase, the installation situation must be defined. This includes selecting the installation location (floor, outdoor area, roof or floor slab), as well as the desired outlet direction. In order to specify the floor structure, information on the different floor construction layers and the types of waterproofing are also needed. After selecting the desired requirements for the drain (nominal size, fire protection, lateral drain), suitable drain bodies are displayed in the next step. Once this has been selected, the process is repeated for the suitable upper section: the requirements here relate to the material used for the grate cover, the load class and the degree to which the installation can be adjusted/locked. Finally, KESSEL offers a range of accessories that are optionally available, such as odour traps, hair filters or sludge buckets. The process is concluded by the user receiving a summary of the configuration, a material list with all the individual items required for this; the BIM data of all products can also be downloaded and the relevant descriptive texts can be displayed.
