Home Forums Ireland South Facing Glazing Re: Re: South Facing Glazing


Thanks keating, I suppose I should say that I’m actually looking for a technical spec or product reference rather than the basic principles of solar shading. The design is intended to be a flush finished box – hence louvres, trellisses, overhangs etc are all out of the question. I know that Shuco do integretad solar micro blinds but I’ve always thought they looked a bit poxy.

So far the best product I’ve seen is Activ Neutral from Pilkington, since this seems to prevent excessive solar gain without blocking too much light. I think the budget may stretch as far as smart glass but again, I’ve never used it before so I’m not sure if it performs thermally as well as aesthetically.
