Peforated Screen Shading Systems

It is now possible to define exterior Perforated Screen shading systems in the Shading System Library and then add them to a glazing system in the Glazing System Library.

Shading System Library

A Perforated Screen can now be defined in the Shading Layer Library. Set the Type to "Perforated screen", and the Perforated Screen tab will be displayed, and the appropriate input entered to define the geometry of the perforations.

Glazing System Library

Once the Perforated Screen has been defined in the Shading Layer Library, it can be added to a glazing system in the Glazing System Library, in any layer position (outside, between glass layers, or inside). In the screen shot below, a Perforated Screen has been added to the outside of a double glazed IGU.
