|Measurement||Evaluation of façades performance regarding the energy efficiency, durability and quality of thermal and visual comfort|
|Measurement objects||Glass and metal façades, double skin façades, ventilated façades, (switchable) glazing, sun and glare protection systems, daylight redirection systems, façade integrated HVAC components, building integrated PV, solar thermal absorbers, general HVAC components and their integral interaction with the façade, decentralized storage systems, technical mock-ups for complete room concepts|
|Height between floors||3.8 m|
|Façade surface area||21 × 15 m² (for each test field)|
|Test cell area (W × D)||4 × 4 m up to 8 × 12 m|
|Field measurements of façade and room concepts||Short- and long-term experiments with real climate conditions|
|1:1 full scale evaluations in step with real usage situations||Integral consideration of façade, room and building service equipment allow a realistic evaluation of the energy consumption and the visual and thermal comfort.|
