Use this component to create a custom material for a window air gap, which can be plugged into the "Honeybee_EnergyPlus Construction" component.
It is important to note that this component only creates gaps of air and not other gasses.
Also, the material out of this component represents only a single layer of air, which can be combined with the "Honeybee_EnergyPlus Glass Material" to make multi-pane windows.
If you have specifications for a whole window element and not individual panes of glass and gas, you are better-off using the "Honeybee_EnergyPlus Window Material" component instead of this one.
