Figure 253 — Window panel operations

The opening direction of the window panels is given by the local placement of the IfcWindow. The positive y-axis determines the direction as shown in Figure 254.

NOTE

  1. Figures are shown as viewed from the outside (in direction of the positive y-axis).
  2. Figures (symbolic representation) depend on the national building code
  3. These figures are only shown as illustrations
