SimShade®

 

 

What is SimShade® ?


SimShade® is an online simulation tool which caters to the needs of architects, engineers, contractors and building owners alike and provides a more holistic  view on the impact that different shading and glazing solutions make on the overall performance of façades.

 

 

With SimShade® you get:

 
A holistic view on glass and shading performance:

  • Glass specifications according to European standards (EN410, EN673)
  • Climate based calculations of glass and shading systems
  • Detailed economic calculator
  • Environmental specifications

 

Façade and building performance:

  • Calculations on glass and shading systems for façades/roofs
  • Thermal, daylight and energy calculations on typical office types

 

Comparison of glass and shading solutions:

  • Comparison of technical parameters for glass and shading solutions
  • Comparison of economic parameters for glass and shading solutions
