Definition from buildingSMART: The IfcRelCoversBldgElements is an objectified relationship between an element and one to many coverings, which cover the building element.

Coverings may be defined primarily as coverings of elements, like an isolation covers a pipe, or as coverings of spaces, as a cladding is often referred to as a space finish.
