BIM - Integral building planning
Typically, a large number of individuals are involved in building planning which means information often gets lost, resulting in errors. BIM allows groups of individuals to work together on projects to promote an early exchange of information and help avoid errors. Doors are frequently seen as one of the most complex construction components, due to the different needs they must fulfil. We offer BIM door objects for door planning to simplify this process.
Building Information Modelling made easy

BIM stands for Building Information Modelling and refers to an integral method for innovative building planning using software. Building data are recorded, processed and networked digitally using BIM. BIM allows buildings can be designed, modelled, optimised and simulated. From the planning phase through construction and operation, and even including demolition. All this is done in just one 3D model which all the participants work on jointly. The model is refined throughout the course of planning. At the end, an image of an actual building is created.
The BIM method is far more than just a simple 3D model:
A variety of information can be linked to every component and every element, for example about maintenance cycles or instructions for recycling the specific element. One of the benefits of digital integral planning with BIM is that precise predictions of a building's construction and life cycle costs can be made at the planning stage. We offer BIM door objects for download to simplify door planning.Download GEZE door objects
The BIM method provides the following advantages during building planning:
- better exchange of information between all participants
- continual availability of high-quality data
- improved productivity
- errors are identified early on
- greater planning and cost securityTo your personal advantages
Effective door planning design with GEZE BIM objects
BIM enables anyone involved in the building planning to work together on the projects that have been created. Specifically to simplify door planning, we have developed door objects based on the results of our work with the door group of buildingSMART, with whom we cooperate and collaborate. The wealth of meta data already available is compared against their official door list. This even includes international projects and serves as a guide for the opportunities that the BIM object offers.
We support you with BIM webinars & workshops from our BIM experts
Simple and efficient planning
- Five door objects are available for BIM planning
- The BIM door objects can be individually adapted
- Our door objects offer a complete door, not just an attachment
- Side panels and fanlights are included on the swing doors
- Door or element lists can be created for your integral planning at the touch of a button
- BIM objects can be adjusted in the scale of 1:200 to 1:10.
- BIM objects are surprisingly small and compact, with no unnecessary details
- Web-based component management system for door configuration, project assignment, and uploading into CAD software
- Door objects as plug-ins for using the component management system directly from the CAD application
Door objects are available free of charge in German, English, and Spanish for the following programmes:
- Graphisoft Archicad (version 17 or above)
- Autodesk Revit (version 2015 or above)
- Nemetschek Allplan (version 2016 or above)
Contact and information exchange with specialists is part of the complete GEZE BIM solution. So not only do we 3D objects, we also provide a solution for designers within the BIM process.Download door objects
Overview of our five door objects
You can use the five basic GEZE door types to create countless varieties of neutral doors. These include, for instance, an automated door or a hold-open system. Download the single leaf swing door and use the parameters provided. All the elements necessary in door planning, such as door handles, fanlights, and side panels are included in the GEZE BIM objects. Each door can be adjusted and changed during the course of planning. Start your personal configuration now.
Single leaf swing door
You can use the underlying parameters to easily create single leaf swing doors with the following components: Door closer, automatic swing door drive, hold-open system, free swing door closer, RWA air intake door, access control or emergency exit protection. © GEZE GmbH
Double leaf swing door
The special features of the asymmetrical double leaf swing door are shown on the left in the BIM model: In addition to basic parameters, there are further options to choose from such as the closing sequence control, carry bar, configuration of the passive leaf and many more possibilities. © GEZE GmbH
Manual sliding door
Manual sliding doors are a practical, space-saving, and design-oriented solution. To simplify your work, wall installation (the most common option) is set as the default here. So you can start planning right away! © GEZE GmbH
Automatic sliding door
You can use the automatic sliding door to configure a personalised BIM door object with a wide variety of drive and door leaf types. All options are included: All-glass doors, burglar protection, doors for narrow profiles, break-out function, accessibility, escape routes, and much more. © GEZE GmbH
You can choose between 3- or 4-leaf revolving doors at the push of a button, as well as between underfloor operators or drive guidance in ceiling. The many additional options provide optimal support when planning for specialised needs such as heavy traffic or large passage widths. © GEZE GmbH
