Ceco (CD) - Brand Guide


KD Borrowed Lites

Ceco KD borrowed lites are built in the Frame Quick Takeoff window using DESC type "BL". Those products have an opening width (rabbet to rabbet) limit of 72" and a height limit of 72".
KD borrowed lite components are also available in Enterprise for inventory purposes. DESC value "BLHD" is the horizontal section and DESC value "BLVS" is the vertical section. 

A60S Stick Material

To build nomenclature consistency, we have marked the A60S MATL attribute as OBSOLETE and instead support stick material with the A60 attribute. This means the A60S attribute is no longer visible on projects or orders where that attribute was not previously used.

However, this MATL Attribute is still usable for inventoried products and will always price to match the A60 version of the product going forward.

Users can leave A60S managed products untouched and continue to expect updated pricing on those products.

However, there may be instances when sourcing where the A60 component needs to be alternate-sourced from the A60S variant from Managed Products.

Alternatively, a Product Count can be used to migrate the products from A60S to A60.


THROAT Standard Group in Preps

As our jamb depth attributes can only be assigned one throat size per jamb depth regardless of frame series, there are occasions where a throat depth other than the Comsense-specified one may be required, even for otherwise standard frame profiles.

For example, the Ceco SU series has a throat dimension of 4-7/8" for 5-3/4" jamb depth due to 7/16" backbends, while all other series -- including other S series frame profiles -- have 1/2" backbends, and therefore 4-3/4" throats. All of these frames are standard profile, not custom.

To accommodate this, please specify a no-charge prep from the THROAT Standard Group to indicate a throat size other than the automated one provided by the catalog database.

Applying these preps will also modify the throat size values in frame submittals.
