Window Construction

- [source code]
Create an EnergyPlus window construction. Material inputs can be either the identifiers of materials within the library or a custom material made with any of the EnergyPlus Material components.
Note that the _materials should be ordered from outermost (exterior) layer to the innermost (interior) layer.


  • name
Text to set the name for the Construction and to be incorporated into a unique Construction identifier.
  • materials [Required]
List of materials in the construction (from exterior to interior). These materials can be either fully-detailed material objects built with the material components or text for a material identifier to be looked up in the window material library. Note that a native Grasshopper "Merge" component can be used to help order the materials correctly for the input here.
  • frame
An optional window frame material to denote the frame that surrounds the window construction. Frame materials can be created using the "HB Window Frame" component.


  • constr
A window construction that can be assigned to Honeybee Apertures or ConstructionSets.
