The window tool makes entering windows in PHPP much easier and is available in Lite and Full versions.
It enters the dimensions of each pane in the window, the 1’s and 0’s and it calculates the average d reveal, the cells shown below. It also adds a number or letter to the end of the name for each pane.
The Lite version is simpler to use and calculates approximate d reveals. Where a BUILDING SHADES ITSELF, for example the building is ‘L’ or ‘U’ shaped, then you will need to manually measure and enter the d reveal from drawings.
The only difference with the full version is that it reads your frame information from the components tab, shows it on the screen and uses it in the calculations. It takes into account real variations in frame thickness around windows from opening/fixed windows and mullions. Where a BUILDING SHADES ITSELF, for example the building is ‘L’ or ‘U’ shaped, then you will need to manually measure and enter the d reveal from drawings.
