New Functions for LogiKal 8.1
1. New Construction Products Regulation
From 1 July 2013, with the full implementation of the Construction Products Regulation, it will be a
legal requirement for manufacturers of construction products covered by a harmonised European
Standard, to ensure their products have a Declaration of Performance against the essential
characteristics and apply CE Marking.
Example of a window characteristic list
LogiKal 8.1 includes a tool for the
user to create a CE label and
Declaration of Performance for
windows, doors & curtain walling.
You right-click each position and
individually or “CTRL” select
multiple positions. LogiKal creates
U-Value calculations for each
position, where the database has
the information and where the
user glass is configured. You can
use this figure or add your own
After you have processed your position you will
be able to assign the relevant characteristics to
the product so you can then produce a CE label
and Declaration of Performance.
The Declaration of Performance and CE label displayed
are draft versions and may vary on the final versions.
There will be multiple CE label designs to use to suit your
product or intended use. This is a 120mm x 30mm useful
for EURO groove use on a window.
2. Special Lengths
You can now edit multiple special lengths within the “Special Length” option.
Example of Special length multiple selection screen
Using “CTRL” you can highlight the profiles you wish to
assign to the same multiple lengths in one action.
3. Estimation per Position
This gives you the ability to see live pricing as you
process. In the project header screen you will have the
option shown in the example shown to the left. You
can use this if you have already built the basics of your
estimation data. It will give you the first pricing once
you have added profiles to your design and then will
keep updated live as you process through the project
Once you have finished the position you can
then use the report “Excel Estimation”. The
purpose of this is to give the user a complete
breakdown of the estimation costs down to the
individual items. This can then be altered to
build up pricing and adjust mark-ups in Excel if a
user prefers this to LogiKal Estimation data
4. Estimation Data – Discount Group Information
From within the System Database
suppliers area you can add more
information to describe a discount
The slabs you create in the grid section can now been seen
when you do a horizontal cross section. The “Actual Glass
Size Display” option needs to be selected within Cross
Section for the slab to be displayed.
6. Hardware Images
When processing you can now toggle these
buttons to see pictures or line text on
7. Door Animation
Once you have selected your
door hardware with hinge
data, you can now view a cross
section and “Animate” the
door while processing the door
using the slide rule option at
the bottom of the example
shown to the right. The
“Display Actual Glass Size”
option needs to be selected for
the door to be animated. This
works for both single and
8. Wall Connections
A graphic has been added to allow you to go straight to the side/s you require.
The folder option allows you to select a wall connection from another position/project.
Selecting the all grey option lets you select a wall connection in the same manner as before.
9. Highlighted Project
When you enter into “Project Management” while you have a project open, the open project
will now be highlighted for ease.
10. User Defined Hardware Packages
You can now create your own
user hardware packages by
project and position. This
means you can import a door
position into a project and
have your user define package
available to select for the rest
of the doors you create in this
Once you have created the package above you can then select it as a
hardware pack in the drop down in Door Hardware. Always
remember to untick “save filter” to see all available packs, including
your newly created ones.
11. Cross Section Plan Report
If you need to see a cross section of each profile relationship you can use
the report “Cross Section Plan”.
Each page then has an
indentifying reference on each
