This is how (digital) planning works today: GEALAN’s Planersoftware 2.0 not only provides certified planning security for every aspect of the window system. It also provides architects with a detailed overview of GEALAN’s product range, including all its variants, benefits and special features.
With GEALAN’s award-winning BIM offer, a realistic simulation with the latest products in various levels of detail is possible. For this purpose, both predefined window and door elements as well as those that can be freely planned in terms of type and shape are available to you.
GEALAN also gives architects and planners advice and support in person on renovation and new construction projects – from the planning stage to the awarding of contracts. Whether it’s a question of suitable products and profile systems, combination options or customised design – GEALAN’s Architectural Advice Service has a tailor-made solution ready for you.
We create the digital frame for your planning.
Planersoftware 2.0 is a professional digital tool from GEALAN. It can be used to create a wide variety of window shapes using your desired profile systems. Furthermore, additional profiles and window sill connections / frame extensions may be added. GEALAN’s award-winning BIM data is available for this purpose as well.
This prize-winning BIM data is available to you via the GEALAN Revit® plug-in and Archicad® add-on.
The installation situation can be checked for condensation and mould formation with the aid of the isotherm calculation. Its easy-to-use section generation provides you, the user, with the horizontal and vertical sections through the window construction. These can be retrieved in DWG, DXF or PDF format.
The software then checks your design for feasibility and keeps an eye on U-values, static values and maximum sizes.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is the planning method of the future. GEALAN’s BIM offering has again won over the jury at the Architects’ Darling® Award and was named – in both 2020 and 2021 – the best solution in the construction industry nationwide.
With GEALAN’s BIM offer, a realistic simulation with the latest products in various levels of detail is possible. For this purpose, both predefined window and door elements as well as those that can be freely planned in terms of type and shape are available. The size of the 3D model data has also been optimised to ensure fluid applications at all times. In addition, the technical feasibility of the desired project can be checked in advance using GEALAN’s solution.
Building and planning using BIM data enables a holistic approach to construction projects. By “BIM modelling” a property, data is processed continually throughout a building’s entire life cycle. If a structural change is made, this is immediately entered into the BIM models. This means that the updated BIM data is immediately available to all parties involved.
As one of the first system providers, we’re already in a position to generate BIM data for almost every conceivable GEALAN product in the window & door sector for the Revit® and Archicad® software programs. In addition, it is also possible to generate our window and door models in IFC format.
You can find information as well as Archicad® add-ons and Revit® plug-ins on our BIM page.
You’d like to get an additional impression of what our BIM support can look like? GEALAN is already present on the BIMobject platform, where you can download our BIM data. We will successively expand the GEALAN range there with further BIM objects.
GEALAN delivers the frame for you here as well: we already have suggested copy available for your preliminary technical remarks. We’ll be happy to provide you with these templates for any profile system.
All tailored tender copy is available both as PDF and Word documents.
You can access these and even more templates when you log in to our MyGEALAN specialist portal. As a registered partner, you get access to the latest product information and detailed planning documents.
You’d like professional personal advice for your planning? Our architectural advice and structural engineering services support architects and planners with their expertise and advise you during the planning phase on window variants, combination options or even customised design. GEALAN’s Architectural Advice Service is very familiar with the window industry. Our experts can give advice and support on renovation and new construction projects – from the planning stage to the awarding of contracts.
When it comes to realising your property’s technical and visual requirements, GEALAN’s construction engineers work closely with you as the architect responsible for planning. If you need support from our Structural Engineering Service, see here who is the right contact in your area:
GEALAN is a pioneer when it comes to supporting partners with digital tools for window and door planning. This has also included the BIM planning method since 2017. GEALAN’s Building Information Modelling has already won multiple awards, and the developers still see more potential. How about this: display prices and delivery times in real time during planning so you can keep an eye on these factors within the software? In future, all that should be possible. After all: “There’s always room for improvement.”
Here you can read the interview with Özkan Arslan, Head of Digital Planning at GEALAN, who explains the benefits and developments of the digital tools in the window industry.
