In the event of personal or material damage, all associated companies and people can be sued in some way. To provide the participants with better legal security the Association of German Engineers (VDI) drew up guideline VDI 6036 to attach radiators. It aims to support planners and heating engineers when calculating possible additional loads on radiators to ensure maximum future reliability and safety.
Kermi has oriented their fixing programme towards high load-bearing capacity, optimal stability and maximum security. Completely constructed in their own house - with their know-how
decades of specialist experience. Conforms precisely with the standard VDI 6036. With the risk of misuse taken in account and therefore more reassuring certainty for planners and heating engineers.
Radiators are exposed to physical contact on a daily basis. In the home, at work, in schools, train stations, airports, foyers . . . Therefore, misuse is generally the rule in real cases. Often through negligence or even deliberate misuse. From individuals harmlessly leaning on the upper edge of the radiator and children sitting on or climbing up the radiator, to the high load associated with masses of people leaving at the end of an event or even during fire alarms. In extreme cases, the radiator can come loose and cause damage due to its heavy weight. The severity of the hazard depends largely on the design, load capacity, rigidity and reliability of the radiator fixing.
Perceptibly more convenience and comfort:
No comfort deficits any more, such as e.g. cold radiation and cold down draughts.
New design and modern optics:
The range of modern radiator models offers virtually unlimited interior design options with multifunctional use.
Safe and durable:
Modern radiators offer new quality and safety & security.
Efficient, healthy and hygienic:
Apart from savings, low energy technology offers a healthy does of comfort due to a balanced room climate.
Value increase for the property:
Modernisation with new radiators leads to a value increase, particularly for old houses.

The VDI 3805 sets out the data structure of product data across the entire TGA and therefore not only gives software users via the manufacturers access to current product data in the area of technical product properties, but also the geometric presentation in CAD programs.

Since the beginning of the 90's Kermi has been working on the BDH or VDI directive work in association with standardisation of the product master data. With the introduction of the BDH radiator data sets, manufacturers and planners can make clear savings in project work and can improve the quality of tenders. Within the framework of the triumphal procession of the CAD based planning, the BDH data set was replaced by the VDI 3805 data format. Kermi took a leading role in the development of this modern data guideline. Today in the plumbing and HVAC environment there are more than 20 VDI 3805 data sheets for different groups of products ( www.vdi.de/3805 ).
VDI 3805 allows plumbing and HVAC manufacturers in different trades to make product data available in high quality for a number of software applications quickly and without bureaucracy. This means the planners always have up-to-date data available in their software for a large number of suppliers. This improves planning quality and security. A win-win effect for the entire industry and for our customers. In the next few years we expect a victory march of the VDI 3805 data in international business. VDI 3805 is the right instrument for this as well.
Kermi currently makes data available to VDI 3805 for 4 product groups in 3 languages. A significant international expansion of the VDI 3805 catalogues is already ongoing.
Here are some of the improvements in VDI 3805 data in comparison to the BDH 2.0 data sets
The first version of the VDI data radiators with technical and geometric data is available.
