Terminology

Shading Coefficient (SC)

The ratio of solar heat gain passing through a glazing system to the solar heat gain that occurs under the same conditions if the window were made of clear, un-shaded double strength window glass. The lower the number, the better the solar shading qualities of the glazing system.

Total Solar Energy Rejected

Measures the window film’s ability to reject solar heat in the form of visible light and invisible infrared radiation.

Total Solar Energy Reflectance

Measures the percentage of solar energy and visible light that are being reflected by the window film. Highly reflective films offer high heat rejection capability. Newer technology films need not be dark nor highly reflective to provide impressive solar energy performance.

Total Solar Energy Absorptance

Measures the percentage of solar energy and visible light that are absorbed by the window film. As absorptance levels of a particular film increase, so will the temperature of the glass. Always refer to a manufacturer’s film-to-glass installation recommendations.

Total Solar Energy Transmittance

Measures the percentage of solar energy and visible light (daylight) that passes through a glazing system. All solar control films reduce visible light transmission in order to provide solar heat control. Lighter films tend to transmit higher levels of solar energy and visible light while darker and more reflective films have lower transmittance levels.

U-Value

A measurement of heat transfer due to outdoor/indoor temperature differences; describing the dealt loss through a material. The lower the U-Value, the less heat transfers.

Emissivity

Measures the surface’s ability to absorb or reflect far-infrared radiation. The lower the emissivity the higher the far-infrared reflection.
