Surface model maybe based on open or closed shells. If backfaces should not be shown differently then the frontface (and in an open shell there is no front and back), the surface style should be assigned as applying to both faces.

This is handled by

    * IfcSurfaceStyle.Side = .BOTH.

It would be wrong and excluded from certification to export the face twice, i.e. with a normal to point in both directions.
