### Modeling glazing system with betweenglassblind shading control

Dear EP-Users,

I am trying to model a glazing system including BetweenGlassBlind shading. The modeling will be done using DesignBuilder, if possible.

The following Image shows the glazing system I am trying to model.

My question is how to model the blinds between the outermost and the second layer of glass, as the I/O-reference for the WindowProperty:ShadingControl object states that "For triple-glazing the blind must be between the two inner glass layers."

Is it possible to model the inner part of the window - ESG-h 6mm / gap / 2x Float 6mm - as one layer of glazing? The blind would then be between the two inner glass layers according to the I/O-reference.

BR, Florian
