Specifiers Given Complete Access to JELD-WEN Products Through Updated FastrackCAD

JELD-WEN, one of the UK's leading joinery manufacturers, has made it even easier for specifiers to access its extensive range of external and internal doors, by adding several new door specifications to FastrackCAD, the architectural CAD website.

FastrackCAD contains over 2,000 of JELD-WEN's specification drawings and the company's products are currently the most widely accessed amongst architects and designers on the website.  

Georgina Campbell, Marketing Manager at JELD-WEN, says: "It is great to hear that our drawings are being so widely accessed via FastrackCAD.  We are committed to ensuring that architects have easy access to our full range of products and our latest technical specifications. FastrackCAD is a fantastic resource for architects and building designers in helping them to accurately source joinery products that meet with the latest legislation and performance requirements."

Terry Holding, Managing Director of Technical Graphics Ltd, the company which produces FastrackCAD, comments: "JELD-WEN has achieved its top ranked position on FastrackCAD by ensuring its drawings are regularly updated and that the site has good links to its website. Our website has more than 48,000 registered users and over the past 12 months, JELD-WEN has received around 70,000 drawing downloads. We are really pleased to see how well FastrackCAD is working for them with specifiers interested in windows, doors and stairs."

New drawings added by JELD-WEN include its Securefit flat and apartment entrance doorsets, plus its internal sliding folding doors from the Room Fold Plus range.

JELD-WEN's Securefit doorsets comply with Building Regulations Part M, B, E and L and come with multi-point espagnolette lock, as standard.  The popular Room Fold Plus system offers the flexibility to close off part of a room when privacy is required, or to slide back and open up a whole living area when required for entertaining and other purposes.  This door system is a stunning addition to any home and the clever design offers uninterrupted flooring from room to room, without the need for a bottom track.

FastrackCAD contains complete technical specifications for JELD-WEN's range of external and internal doors, patio doors, windows and stair layouts. For specifiers looking to achieve the higher levels of the Code for Sustainable Homes, the FastrackCAD system contains JELD-WEN's DreamVu™ family of windows and doors.  This range has windows that can be specified to achieve U  values as low as 0.7W/m2K and is available with the option of JELD-WEN's 60 year Lifespan™ guarantee. 

As well as using FastrackCAD to help achieve very low U values specifiers can easily access products that meet with the latest Building Regulations performance requirements for fire, mobility and security.

On FastrackCAD, JELD-WEN's products are available as AutoCAD.DWG files, which are available to download from the website atwww.fastrackcad.com.
