Low-E glazing design guide
Low-E Glazing Design Guide, an international reference on low-emissivity glazings, includes practical design methods for solar load minimization, solar heating applications, and daylighting. This book reveals the many issues concerning building codes, energy, and thermal and visual comfort that designersmust address to understand this revolutionary glazing. Readers learn the evolution of the product and how the rapid acceptance of low-e glazing is tabulated both by performance and application for quick identification, and examples of office and residential low-e glass usage in Europe and North Americaare given. Low-E Glazing Design Guide fills the void of technological information for the designer in this new field.Topics include:-design methods and applications for cooling and heating-tables of available low-e products from North America and Europe-worldwide list of low-e glazing manufacturers-specification guidelines-performance analysis of soft, thick, and hard coats on glass and of soft coats on polyester films-glare reduction and daylighting prediction techniques-how the four types of low-e glazing work-future developments in low-e glazing.
