Sourcing the right kitchen appliances can get complicated. Whether it’s a lack of adequate information, faulty installation manuals or overly simplistic design files, many things can go awry: for this reason, manufacturers endeavour to ensure their products fit seamlessly into any plan. With Fisher & Paykel’s Trade Resources — a new online database of technical content — kitchens can be designed to perfection, with no detail left unconsidered.
A global design leader in luxury appliances, Fisher & Paykel combines innovative technical performance with effortless style and flexibility of use. Offering a wide selection of customization options, these appliances are made to fit into any home — cleverly concealed and with style options suited to any kitchen aesthetic. From concept all the way through to final plan, Fisher & Paykel’s newly updated Trade Resources provides optimized files for true design freedom. Whether you’re sourcing products for a client or working on your own project, Trade Resources makes the planning process painless and efficient.
In partnership with leading BIM-focused architecture practices, Fisher & Paykel have developed comprehensive tools specifically for the trade. By putting themselves in the architects and designers’ shoes, they are able to understand what information is needed at various stages in the design and build process — delivering neatly packaged and easily adaptable information that make specifying easier and faster.
Leveraging an enhanced interface, potential specifiers can readily find and access all the documents they need. An extensive selection of 3D files is now available for download and use — this purpose-built technical content includes 3D files for Revit, ArchiCAD, Sketchup and Rhino. Files can be downloaded individually, or as a zipped bundle for more extensive projects.
This approach is unique on many levels: Fisher & Paykel’s files are built expressly to support the planning and specifying process, instead of simply repurposing product engineering files. The level of detail included in the data sheets, for example, is unparalleled in the industry. Fisher & Paykel have created a new version of these that are more adequately suited to architects’ needs.
High-resolution files include models for real time rendering, parametric design in BIM for every kitchen appliance carried by the brand — from refrigeration and dishwashers to ventilation and ranges, plus much more. Suitable for high quality concept renders, the files can be used for a wide range of applications. Simply search the product type, name or model you need — or select a product category — and let Trade Resource’s comprehensive interface do the rest. Both 2D and 3D files are available, as well as user guides, data sheets and more. For those interested in upcoming products, preliminary specification guides are available for appliances that have not yet been released — giving designers early insight for design planning.
Having the right files available at each stage of the planning process makes it easy to incorporate Fisher & Paykel’s luxury appliances into any project. With Trade Resources, a wide variety of technical content is now available at your fingertips — so you can feel confident throughout the entire design process.
