Excess heat and glare caused by the sun can be a major source of discomfort in some indoor environments, such as buildings and cars. The latest window solutions for solar control reflect and filter the sun’s rays, allowing natural daylight into the room, but without uncomfortable visual glare. Rooms can be kept cooler during sunny periods, reducing the need for air-conditioning.
A variety of solar control glass, films and coating solutions are available today offering a constant reduction of solar radiation regardless of environmental conditions. The existing solutions either reflect or absorb a constant amount of solar radiation during hot days as well as during the cold period of the year. This results in window solutions suitable most for one situation, unable to vary their optical transmission properties according to different temperature and light conditions. This calls for a passive solar optical control filter that will adapt its solar transmission to the various hot/cold environmental conditions.
