6.1.4.11.2 Applicable entities

6.1.4.11.3 Properties

Name Property Type Data Type Description
GlassLayers IfcPropertySingleValue IfcCountMeasure

Number of glass layers within the frame. E.g. "2" for double glazing.

GlassThickness1 IfcPropertySingleValue IfcPositiveLengthMeasure

Thickness of the first (inner) glass layer.

GlassThickness2 IfcPropertySingleValue IfcPositiveLengthMeasure

Thickness of the second (intermediate or outer) glass layer.

GlassThickness3 IfcPropertySingleValue IfcPositiveLengthMeasure

Thickness of the third (outer) glass layer.

FillGas IfcPropertySingleValue IfcLabel

Name of the gas by which the gap between two glass layers is filled. It is given for information purposes only.

GlassColour IfcPropertySingleValue IfcLabel

Colour (tint) selection for this glazing. It is given for information purposes only.

IsTempered IfcPropertySingleValue IfcBoolean

Indication whether the glass is tempered (TRUE) or not (FALSE) .

IsLaminated IfcPropertySingleValue IfcBoolean

Indication whether the glass is layered with other materials (TRUE) or not (FALSE).

IsCoated IfcPropertySingleValue IfcBoolean

Indication whether the glass is coated with a material (TRUE) or not (FALSE).

IsWired IfcPropertySingleValue IfcBoolean

Indication whether the glass includes a contained wire mesh to prevent break-in (TRUE) or not (FALSE)

VisibleLightReflectance IfcPropertySingleValue IfcNormalisedRatioMeasure

Fraction of the visible light that is reflected by the glazing at normal incidence. It is a value without unit.

VisibleLightTransmittance IfcPropertySingleValue IfcNormalisedRatioMeasure

Fraction of the visible light that passes the object at normal incidence. It is a value without unit.

SolarAbsorption IfcPropertySingleValue IfcNormalisedRatioMeasure

(Asol) The ratio of incident solar radiation that is absorbed by a glazing system. It is the sum of the absorption distributed to the exterior (a) and to the interior (qi). Note the following equation Asol + Rsol + Tsol = 1

SolarReflectance IfcPropertySingleValue IfcNormalisedRatioMeasure

(Rsol): The ratio of incident solar radiation that is reflected by a glazing system (also named ρe). Note the following equation Asol + Rsol + Tsol = 1

SolarTransmittance IfcPropertySingleValue IfcNormalisedRatioMeasure

The ratio of incident solar radiation that directly passes through a system (also named τe). Note the following equation Asol + Rsol + Tsol = 1

SolarHeatGainTransmittance IfcPropertySingleValue IfcNormalisedRatioMeasure

(SHGC): The ratio of incident solar radiation that contributes to the heat gain of the interior, it is the solar radiation that directly passes (Tsol or τe) plus the part of the absorbed radiation that is distributed to the interior (qi). The SHGC is referred to also as g-value (g = τe + qi).

ShadingCoefficient IfcPropertySingleValue IfcNormalisedRatioMeasure

(SC): The measure of the ability of a glazing to transmit solar heat, relative to that ability for 3 mm (1/8-inch) clear, double-strength, single glass. Shading coefficient is being phased out in favor of the solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC), and is approximately equal to the SHGC multiplied by 1.15. The shading coefficient is expressed as a number without units between 0 and 1.

ThermalTransmittanceSummer IfcPropertySingleValue IfcThermalTransmittanceMeasure

Thermal transmittance coefficient (U-Value) of a material. Summer thermal transmittance coefficient of the glazing only, often referred to as (U-value).

ThermalTransmittanceWinter IfcPropertySingleValue IfcThermalTransmittanceMeasure

Thermal transmittance coefficient (U-Value) of a material. Winter thermal transmittance coefficient of the glazing only, often referred to as (U-value).
