While building from existing data will help speed the calculation process, the calculator maintains usability for those not using Revit, allowing users to enter all information manually, in the event of projects which are already on printed media, or other software such as AutoCAD, Caddie, ArchiCAD, AllyCAD, ZWCAD etc.All the modules from the SANS 204 and SANS 10400-XA energy efficiency documents are included in both SANSCalc application versions. The reporting system includes the deemed to satisfy fenestration calculations, roof and wall insulation calculations along with peak energy demand and annual energy usage of lighting, as stipulated in the SANS 204 and SANS 10400-XA regulations.
The implementation of SANS 10400 XA as part of South Africa's National Building Regulations now requires new buildings conforming to the building energy efficiency requirements, as set out in the SANS 10400-XA and SANS 204 specification. While not overly complex in nature, these calculations are often tedious and time consuming. To aid designers and building technologists to better perform the calculations, we created SANSCalc Desktop and SANSCalc Online to perform the fenestration and other building energy efficiency calculations outlined in the SANS 10400-XA and SANS 204 documents.
Fenestration Software for PC’s.
No internet connection needed.
SANSCalc Online is a web based application, performing the same calculations as SANSCalc Desktop. You have the flexibility of using one license on many devices without having to download and install software at all!
Cloud-Based SANS Calculator.
No download or installation.
SANSCalc Software is based on an architecture database which contains all the tables and information as per the SANS 204 and SANS 10400-XA specification. Autodesk Revit integration allows the user to pull fenestration details from their Revit drawings and models, perform calculations and experiment with alternative material choices before finalising their design.
SANSCalc Desktop is an easy to use program that is designed to help professionals not only perform SANS 10400-XA and SANS 204 calculations, but also to report on projects for building plan submission, construction and management purposes.
Both these applications perform the same calculations at the same level of accuracy. After installation, SANSCalc Desktop runs from your office computer like any other software you have installed. SANSCalc Online is a cloud-based application that can be accessed from any computer, laptop or tablet with an internet connection.
and that is exactly why we created SANSCalc Desktop and SANSCalc Online.
