An Architect’S Guide To Sustainable Window Coverings Ppt

  1. 1. An Architect’s Guide to Sustainable Window Coverings<br />
  2. 2. It is a window in a residential, commercial or institutional facility that is treated by a window covering to prevent the loss of heat in winter and to filter out solar heat gain in summer months with sustainable products and ideas. <br />What is a Green Window?<br />

  4. 4. Daylighting<br />
  5. 5. Energy Reduction <br /> Energy reduction through solar shading and window coverings may be quantified in two primary categories; reduction of solar energy entering a space and thereby reducing the amount energy used for cooling and reduction of thermal energy leaving the space and thereby reducing the energy required for heating.<br />
  6. 6. Recycled Content <br />GreenScreen® Revive<br />
  7. 7. Automation<br />
  8. 8. Indoor Environmental Quality<br />We have a full line of low VOC products that pass the GreenGuard® Air Quality Certified® and GreenGuard® for Children and Schools SM standards<br />

  13. 13. Solar transmittance (Ts)<br /> This factor gives the proportion of solar energy transmitted through the fabric. A low percentage means the fabric performs well at reducing solar energy.<br />Solar reflectance (Rs)<br /> This factor gives the proportion of solar radiation reflected by the fabric. A high percentage means the fabric performs well at reflecting solar energy.<br /> <br />Solar absorptance (As)<br /> This factor gives the proportion of solar radiation absorbed by the fabric. A low percentage means the fabric absorbs little solar energy.<br />Solar radiation is always partially transmitted through, absorbed or reflected by the fabric. The sum of all 3 equals 100. Ts + Rs + As = 100% of solar energy.<br />How does Solar Protection work ?<br />
  14. 14. Visual Transmittance<br />Tv = Visual Transmittance is the measure of Glare<br />The number is a ratio of the amount of total solar energy which passes through the glass and screen combined. <br />M-Screen 5% White/White = 15This fabric reduces glare by 85%<br />M-Screen 5% Charcoal/Sky = 5This fabric reduces glare by 95%<br />
  15. 15. Shading Coefficient<br />Shading Coefficient is the percentage of solar heat gain through a combination of glass and screen. Light colors have lower shading coefficients and darker colors have higher shading coefficients. <br />
  16. 16. Shading Coefficient<br />M-Screen 5% White/White = .36This fabric allows 36% heat gain<br />M-Screen 5% Charcoal/Sky = .65This fabric allows 65% heat gain<br />

  34. 34. They work through natural convection. Heat absorbing aluminum is encased by a plastic vane. When the aluminum is heated by the sun a “chimney effect” is created. Cool air is drawn into each vane, heated and re-circulated back into the room.<br />
  35. 35. The Workroom Conversion<br />Decorating with Fabric has successfully employed sustainable supplies, products and practices into its workroom and installation business.<br />
  36. 36. Mission Statement<br />Decorating with Fabric is dedicated toward the efforts of creating a living & working environment that is energy efficient, healthy and productive. We are aware of our own footprint in the design, creation and installation of our treatments and strive to provide sustainable solutions that protect the environment.<br />
