When the Linc database opens, the existing Glass Type and properties will be displayed at the top of the Linc Window. Select a substitute Glass Type from the list displayed and using the arrow, apply this to the glazed element.
If this construction type is in Revit’s internal list, it will update the element immediately. If this construction type is new and not in Revit, the new properties will appear when Revit is closed and re-launched. This allows FenestraPro to update Revit’s list of Construction Types.
Note: You may also adjust the filters to view more Glass Types in the list. Selecting Glass Types from this increased list however may not resolve values for Heat Gain, Daylighting and U-Value.
If a Glass Type cannot be found that will improve all the existing property categories, a message will appear to advise of this. This may also occur if some properties may be improved but others cannot. For example, Glass Types may be available with better performance for some parameters eg. U-Value and VLT but not for others eg. SHGC.
Note: VLT = Visual Light Transmittance
SHGC = Solar Heat Gain Coefficient
U-Value = Indicator of Heat Loss through an element
You may go ahead and apply a Glass Type and when the results update, you may revisit the Surface if it needs further improvement.
