6.1.4.12.2 Applicable entities

6.1.4.12.3 Properties

Name Property Type Data Type Description
Reference IfcPropertySingleValue IfcIdentifier

Reference ID for this specified type in this project (e.g. type 'A-1'), Also referred to as "construction type". It should be provided as an alternative to the name of the "object type", if the software does not support object types and no classification reference to a recognized classification system used.

Status IfcPropertyEnumeratedValue PEnum_ElementStatus

Status of the element, predominately used in renovation or retrofitting projects. The status can be assigned to as "New" - element designed as new addition, "Existing" - element exists and remains, "Demolish" - element existed but is to be demolished, "Temporary" - element will exists only temporary (like a temporary support structure).

Span IfcPropertySingleValue IfcPositiveLengthMeasure

Clear span for this object.

The shape information is provided in addition to the shape representation and the geometric parameters used within. In cases of inconsistency between the geometric parameters and the shape properties, provided in the attached property, the geometric parameters take precedence. For geometry editing applications, like CAD: this value should be write-only.

Slope IfcPropertySingleValue IfcPlaneAngleMeasure

Slope angle - relative to horizontal (0.0 degrees).

The shape information is provided in addition to the shape representation and the geometric parameters used within. In cases of inconsistency between the geometric parameters and the shape properties, provided in the attached property, the geometric parameters take precedence. For geometry editing applications, like CAD: this value should be write-only.

Roll IfcPropertySingleValue IfcPlaneAngleMeasure

Rotation against the longitudinal axis.

Relative to the global Z direction for all members that are non-vertical in regard to the global coordinate system (Profile direction equals global Z is Roll = 0.) The shape information is provided in addition to the shape representation and the geometric parameters used within. In cases of inconsistency between the geometric parameters and the shape properties, provided in the attached property, the geometric parameters take precedence. Note: new property in IFC4.

IsExternal IfcPropertySingleValue IfcBoolean

Indication whether the element is designed for use in the exterior (TRUE) or not (FALSE). If (TRUE) it is an external element and faces the outside of the building.

ThermalTransmittance IfcPropertySingleValue IfcThermalTransmittanceMeasure

Thermal transmittance coefficient (U-Value) of an element, within the direction of the thermal flow (including all materials).

LoadBearing IfcPropertySingleValue IfcBoolean

Indicates whether the object is intended to carry loads (TRUE) or not (FALSE).

FireRating IfcPropertySingleValue IfcLabel

Fire rating for this object. It is given according to the national fire safety classification.
