Overtur™ improves collaboration, coordination, productivity during the specification process
Indianapolis, Ind. (November 13, 2017) – Allegion™, a leading provider of security products and solutions, today launched Overtur™, a new cloud-based platform for the design and specification of door hardware. Overtur includes a suite of tools designed to improve efficiency, accuracy and collaboration for a more productive door hardware specification process.
“Overtur is a place where architects, door hardware consultants and other key stakeholders work together on the design and specification of opening hardware,” said David Fouché, AEC platform manager at Allegion. “It connects the architect’s plans and door schedules with the specification consultant’s database in an online platform for easy collaboration.”
Using Allegion’s new platform, architects can upload door data, schedules and plans directly from Revit to Overtur, where it is readily accessible by all stakeholders. From there, everyone is able to review designs in an online environment. Floor plans, hardware sets and product data are all available in one place and easy to navigate.
“For example, if an architect selects a door within Overtur, they will see all of the relevant information associated with that opening,” said Fouché. “They can also view all doors with electrified hardware or every opening that is fire-rated through a filtering tool.”
Allegion’s new technology shortens the specification cycle by making data transfers more efficient. The data can be sent from the Allegion specification consultant to Overtur and back to the architect’s Revit model, as well as directly to the electrical engineer’s model or drawings as needed. Additionally, the program tracks all changes to the hardware set throughout the project. Users can view a list of doors that were modified during a specific timeframe by product type or hardware changes to the door schedule.
