FB720 project: development of new solar control glazing with passive seasonal discrimination of solar radiation incomes
Rights accessOpen Access
Currently, the most balanced technical solution for sun protection of glazed areas is the Venetian blind, because it prevents the entry of direct solar radiation, but at the same time provides a view of the outside and allows light to diffuse into the building. The current challenge is to find an improved, integrated technical solution at an affordable cost that requires low maintenance, is suitable for every geographical situation (latitude) and adaptable to each orientation of building fac¸ades. The solar control glass fac¸ade FB720 presented here integrates into a single structural element the advantages of protective glass and Venetian blinds.
