Combine uses of Ceramic Frits to achieve lower SC / SHGC
Silk-screening ceramic frit onto glass enables the designer to use color and patterns on architectural glazing. Combined with clear or tinted glass substrates, as well as high-performance coatings, fritted glazing can help reduce solar heat gain. An opaque frit pattern can help control glare but translucent frit patterns may provide diffuse light that increases glare.
Combine uses of Tinted Glass to achieve lower SC / SHGC
Solar heat gain is influenced by the glazing type. For example, solar heat gain of a 8+12A+8 composition Low-E IGU glazing with SC=0.24 performance, by laminating a 8mm light grey tinted glass to the front panel, the shading coefficient can drop to 0.18. This value decreases refers to higher energy saving performance by lowering the solar heat gain physically with an additional tinted glass.
