[Equest-users] Aluminum infill panel behind the glass

Spandrel isn't vision glazing and should not be modeled as a "window".  It is a particular opaque wall type that should be modeled as a wall.  The only difference is that instead of having a brick, EFIS, stone, metal panel, etc., the exterior surface in a spandrel wall assembly is glass.

Subject: [Equest-users] Aluminum infill panel behind the glass

Hello all,
Attached is a part of wall section of the proposed model of office building anticipated LEED silver certification.
8-43 is Alum. Curtain wall system (KAWNEER CLEARWALL) fritted pattern on #2 clear glazing surface and painted spandrel on #4 clear glazing (U-0.48, SHGC-0.39) and 8-45 is Aluminum infill panel with 2" rigid insulation.
I am assuming this part as spandrel glass in the proposed model. How can I add the effect of 8-45 that is behind the glass?
I would appreciate your comments.
