MicroShade is a highly effective shading product containing microscopic shading lamellas. The shading efficiency depends on the incidence angle of the sun on the lamellas. When the sun is high in the sky during the summer, MicroShade provides the strongest shading and during winter when the sun is low more heat is allowed into the building. Similarly, the shading efficiency also varies during the course of the day due to the different positions of the sun morning, noon and evening.
The Navigator facilitates the import of MicroShade product types MS-A and MS-D for vertical facades and MS-RS and MS-RW for roof applications. Constructions will be automatically defined in Apache Constructions Database (APcdb) for modellers to later assign. The Navigator will show the product listing for modellers to select from and then successfully confirm import.
