Entity definition

The window lining is the outer frame which enables the window to be fixed in position. The window lining is used to hold the window panels or other casements. The parameter of the IfcWindowLiningProperties define the geometrically relevant parameter of the lining.

NOTE  The IfcWindowLiningProperties shall only be applied to construct the 3D shape of a window, if the attribute IfcWindowType.ParameterTakesPrecedence is set TRUE.

The IfcWindowLiningProperties are included in the set of properties of IfcWindowStyle.HasPropertySets. More information about the window lining can be included in the same set of the IfcWindowType using another IfcPropertySet for dynamic extensions.

The IfcWindowLiningProperties does not hold a geometric representation. However it defines parameters which can be used to create the shape of the window type(which is inserted by the IfcWindow into the spatial context of the project) as shown in Figure 299. The parameters at the IfcWindowLiningProperties define a standard window lining, including (if given) a mullion and a transom (for horizontal and vertical splits). The outer boundary of the lining is determined by the 'Profile' shape representation assigned to the IfcWindow, which inserts the IfcWindowType.

 

lining 5 The lining is applied to all faces of the opening reveal. The parameter are:
  • LiningDepth
  • LiningThickness
  • LiningOffset
  • LiningToPanelOffsetX
  • LiningToPanelOffsetY
The inner side is defined as the direction of the window panel opening operation.
lining 1 If the OperationType of the window style is
  • DoublePanelVertical (shown)
  • TriplePanelBottom
  • TriplePanelTop
  • TriplePanelLeft
  • TriplePanelRight
the following additional parameter apply:
  • MullionThickness
  • FirstMullionOffset measured as offset to the Z axis (in XZ plane) as a normalized ratio measure
lining 2 If the OperationType of the window type is:
  • DoublePanelHorizontal
  • TriplePanelBottom
  • TriplePanelTop
  • TriplePanelLeft
  • TriplePanelRight
the following additional parameter apply
  • TransomThickness
  • FirstTransomOffset measured as offset to the X axis (in XZ plane) as a normalized ratio measure
lining 3 If the OperationType of the window type is:
  • TriplePanelVertical
the following additional parameter apply:
  • SecondMullionOffset measured as offset to the Z axis (in XZ plane) as a normalized ratio measure
lining 4 If the OperationType of the window type is:
  • TriplePanelHorizontal
the following additional parameter apply:
  • SecondTransomOffset measured as offset to the X axis (in XZ plane) as a normalized ratio measure

Attribute definitions
#AttributeTypeCardinalityDescription G
5LiningDepthIfcPositiveLengthMeasure? Depth of the window lining (dimension measured perpendicular to window elevation plane).X
6LiningThicknessIfcNonNegativeLengthMeasure? Thickness of the window lining as explained in the figure above. If LiningThickness value is 0. (zero) it denotes a window without a lining (all other lining parameters shall be set to NIL in this case). If the LiningThickness is NIL it denotes that the value is not available.
IFC4 CHANGE  Data type modified to be IfcNonNegativeLengthMeasure.
X
7TransomThicknessIfcNonNegativeLengthMeasure? Thickness of the transom (horizontal separator of window panels within a window), measured parallel to the window elevation plane. The transom is part of the lining and the transom depth is assumed to be identical to the lining depth. If the TransomThickness is set to zero (and the TransomOffset set to a positive length), then the window is divided vertically without a physical divider.
IFC4 CHANGE  Data type changed to IfcNonNegativeLengthMeasure.
X
8MullionThicknessIfcNonNegativeLengthMeasure? Thickness of the mullion (vertical separator of window panels within a window), measured parallel to the window elevation plane. The mullion is part of the lining and the mullion depth is assumed to be identical to the lining depth. If the MullionThickness is set to zero (and the MullionOffset set to a positive length), then the window is divided horizontally without a physical divider.
IFC4 CHANGE  Data type changed to IfcNonNegativeLengthMeasure.
X
9FirstTransomOffsetIfcNormalisedRatioMeasure? Offset of the transom centerline, measured along the z-axis of the window placement co-ordinate system. An offset value = 0.5 indicates that the transom is positioned in the middle of the window. X

15LiningToPanelOffsetXIfcLengthMeasure? Offset between the lining and the window panel measured along the x-axis of the local placement. Should be smaller or equal to the LiningThickness.
IFC4 CHANGE  New attribute added at the end of the entity definition.
X
16LiningToPanelOffsetYIfcLengthMeasure? Offset between the lining and the window panel measured along the y-axis of the local placement. Should be smaller or equal to the IfcWindowPanelProperties.PanelThickness.

Formal Propositions
RuleDescription
WR31Either both parameter, LiningDepth and LiningThickness are given, or only the LiningThickness, then the LiningDepth is variable. It is not valid to only assert the LiningDepth.
NOTE  A LiningDepth with NIL ($) value indicates a window style with a lining equal to the wall thickness.
IFC4 CHANGE  Rule corrected.
WR32Either both parameter, FirstTransomOffset and SecondTransomOffset are given, or only the FirstTransomOffset, or none of both. It is not valid to only assert the SecondTransomOffset.
WR33Either both parameter, FirstMullionOffset and SecondMullionOffset are given, or only the FirstMullionOffset, or none of both. It is not valid to only assert the SecondMullionOffset.
WR34The IfcWindowPanelProperties shall only be used in the context of an IfcDoorType.
NOTE  The deprecated entity IfcWindowStyle is applicable as well.
