Zublin AG, Stuttgart, Germany This paper first analyses the current exchange of optical and calorimetric data. A large amount of manual work is necessary for manufacturers to supply numerous data formats and for planners to access product data, to check the quality and to use it for building performance simulation. Therefore, this paper proposes a system of databases which use the same specification for their application programming interfaces. This enables fast and costefficient building performance simulations and makes it easy for manufacturers to manage their product data. The International Glazing and Shading Database and the European Solar-Shading Database will use the new interface to offer high-quality data for many glazing and shading components.
