58BW Window & 58BD Door Product Awareness & Logikal workshop

A guide to using the LogiKal Software Package and specific product information

workshop outline*GQA ACCREDITED


This 2-day workshop has been designed to provide awareness of the AluK 58BW Window & 58BD Door Systems, some of which will be covered during the Logikal training on the second day.  The course has been created for delegate[s] with no prior knowledge or minimal knowledge of AluK’s residential window and door product offer.  It can also be useful as part of an introduction into the industry or as refresher course. 

The aim of day 1 is to provide those attending with an understanding of the 58BW Window & 58BD Door Systems. The workshop will look at identifying the various system and discuss the systems capabilities.

The aim of day 2 is to introduce you to the Logikal System. We’ll start with an empty Logikal file and gradually build up a project using the AluK 58BW & 58BD Residential Window & Door Systems. The course starts with the basic elements on each system and then adds more complex knowledge of outputs about estimation and production.

While the workshop does not assume any prior Logikal knowledge [aluminium system background is useful], it provides value to users at a variety of levels. Novice and experienced attendees to become acquainted with the full spectrum of options and learn the basics of creating AluK Systems learning processing tools centred on efficiency.

The delegate will be instructed on project set up, structural input, position input, output Eco/Fab documents, cross sections and U-value reports on the systems indicated in the agenda.

* This is a GQA Qualifications Ltd Accredited Course and there is a short end of course assessment to take to gain the GQA Certificate.
