glazing

Solar control glass: - Allows sunlight to pass through a window or façade thus keeping the indoor space bright - Saves huge amount of energy by reducing and sometimes eliminating the need for air-conditioning - Reduces energy consumption required to cool down a building - Reduces energy related CO2 emissions

Currently, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Great Britain have adopted systems for energy rating of the fenestration products. Among them, only Australia and New Zealand have taken into account the cooling performance. Finland has launched a pilot program for energy rating window products, while Denmark has developed a labeling scheme for glazing components.

The thermal and optical behavior of a fenestration system can be described with the following parameters: • Thermal transmittance coefficient or heat transfer coefficient (U-value), • Solar transmittance coefficient or solar heat gain coefficient (g value) - Shading coefficient (SC) • Visual transmittance ( v ). These parameters apply both for glazing and windows.

The impact of Windows on the energy performance of buildings is increased with the reduction of the energy demand. In the past windows influenced only 20-30% the energy demand of buildings but in low energy buildings windows have already an influence of more than 50% to the energy needs. With the upcoming net zero energy buildings the influence will raise above 80%.
