Extruded Mullions

Mullions with extended profiles will also have Shading Effects on the glazing below them (or beside them if they are used as Vertical Fins).  Include Shading Factors in the Building Manager to get Shading Results in the Charts and View shadow effects in the Shading Viewer.  Solar Loads and Daylight Results will reduce when extruded mullions are included.
