2 ENERGY EFFICIENCY Thermal Insulation Thermal Insulation and Solar Control Solar Control 2

3 Daylight Transmittance (%): The ratio of the visible spectrum (light) that is transmitted through glass. Solar Factor: The percentage of total solar radiant heat energy entering the room through the glass. The lower solar factor means better solar control. Shading Coefficient: The ratio of solar factor of a particular glass type to the solar factor of 3 mm clear float glass, set in identical conditions. The lower shading coefficient means better solar control. U value (W/m2K): A measure of the rate of heat loss of a building component. The lower U value means better heat control and more comfort in winter. 3

15 Glass Consulting In 2014 we started offering pro-bono Glass Consulting to decision makers like architects, façade consultants, investors and contractors for the selection of right glass for optimum heating/cooling and energy savings in their projects. We are offering solutions on a project-by-project basis, calculating statical, thermal breakage and performance; prepare glass specification proposals and provide samples/mock-ups for projects. 15
