Thus, in order to maintain performance, designers should use quite complex optical systems where direct sunlight can be partly reflected depending upon the incident angle. During the summer, the transmittance is normally low, while for low solar altitudes during winter, the transmittance is high. Due to their accurate shape and highly reflective material, these systems are enclosed between a double-glazing insulating unit. These systems reflect direct sunlight backwards and mainly transmit diffuse radiation.
The blinds are equipped with a high specular, high reflective upside surface with reflectance above 90 per cent, and with a grey diffuse downside surface. A further improvement is the perforation of the blinds’ surface, a technique able to provide a visual connection with the exterior environment even when the blind system is closed. The optimum use of a blind system can be performed by automatic control depending upon the external climatic conditions and the internal demands. DiBartolomeo et al (1996) have tested such a system with the following control options: ● direct sun block; ● adjustment of blind angle to maintain the design workplace’s illumination; and ● maintenance of the total illuminance from lights and daylight within the design’s illuminance range.
The energy use of this building was simulated with conventional and cool versions of three different steep-sloped (5:12) roofing products: fibreglass asphalt shingle, concrete tile and polymer-coated metal. 10. 40. 90. The 2005 Title 24 Standards prescriptively require a sub-roof radiant barrier for residential buildings in some climate zones (2, 4 and 8 to 15); but they are not present on most existing houses. 10). 1/m2. 10. While California’s Title 24 Standards prescribe the installation of sub-roof radiant barriers for residential buildings in climate zones 2, 4 and 8 to 15, it was not common practice in pre-2000 construction.
