Bane NOR offers a collection of the most common objects through the Object Library in order to streamline the projecting. The items available in the library are simplified and product-independent volume objects.
The user accepts the following conditions when using the library:
The use of the library does not relieve the designer of the responsibility of quality assuring the project. The objects that are available are for guidance only. Details of the design, sizes and location of the objects / elements are not considered documented, as this may vary from facility to facility. The design, type and size of the objects must be checked before use especially where there is limited space for placement. Bane NOR assumes no responsibility for errors or inconsistencies with objects in the library. Those who design for Bane NOR using the object library undertake to work together to expand the library with missing or revised objects. The ownership rights of these objects will free belong Bane NOR. This requires that new objects developed for Bane NOR will be free to use for all partners of Bane NOR.
