Title: Solar shading of buildings

Ref Code: BR364
Authors: P Littlefair

Abstract1: In winter, the window can act as a passive solar collector, helping to heat up the building. Windows have their adverse effects too, but these can mostly be avoided by providing a suitable shading device There are three main reasons why shading might be needed: to reduce overheating, to reduce glare from windows, and to provide privacy.
