I have checked out the Olgyay Brothers Solar Control & Shading Devices many times over the years from a local college library. This text is what I compare all other solar design Reviews: 1. Buy Solar Control and Shading Devices by Olgyay, Aladar, Olgyay, Victor (ISBN: ) from Amazon's Book Store.

Everyday low prices and free delivery on eligible orders.5/5(2). The use of sun control and shading devices is an important aspect of this energy efficient building; particularly in employing passive solar heating and daylighting through sun control.

During cooling seasons, external window shading is an excellent way to prevent unwanted solar heat gain from entering an air-conditioned space.

Francesca Stazi PHD, in Advanced Building Envelope Components, Solar control coatings. Solar control glazing are designed for hot climate applications, to reflect NIR radiation (wavelength – μm) while allowing the transmittance of visible radiation.

They strongly reduce heat gain in summer by blocking a large fraction of the solar infrared energy, thus reducing the cooling loads. Finally, shading and solar control devices have a great potential for architectural expression, adding to the texture and modulation of the facade.

They also have the potential (and should) respond to the orientation of the facade, thus visibly reflecting the building’s place in the natural world as well as its urban setting.

These systems can be switched between a transparent and a scattering state either by application of an electric voltage or.

Even though the book was published in the late fifties, the method of designing shading elements is interesting and stands true to the test of time. However, one needs to be more informed of the recent glazing specifications and materials when reading the book to mentally filter out some of what was recommended by the Olgyay brothers in their time/5.

This book describes the development and state of the art of solar shading devices in buildings, details all methods of evaluating shading systems according to thermal and visual comfort, and covers Sun control machines that play a major role in the control of solar and thermal radiation.

Solar Control Glass: shading effect does not vary during the year; the reduction of solar transmittance results in reduction of daylight transmittance unless selective coatings are used. Shading devices: variable effect depending on whether shading is angle dependant, movable or angle independent.

It is an effective way of shading, but can. DESCRIPTION The use of sun control and shading devices is an important aspect of many energy-efficient building design strategies.

In particular, buildings that employ passive solar heating or daylighting often depend on well-designed sun control and shading devices. solar control and shading can be provided by a wide range of building.

Shading losses of photovoltaic systems can not be avoided (if shading occurs), but at least portion.

With a dynamic solar shading solution, daylight levels can be maximized and controlled, whatever the season or time of day. Dynamic solar shading uses technology to automate and control external and/or internal solar shading devices such as screens, blinds and shades by means of an intelligent building control.

Mobile shading devices (venetian blinds, roller blinds, curtains, etc.) permit, manually or by automated systems, to adapt to the sun path daily and yearly, due to a punctual control of the shading elements based on solar radiation, indoor temperature or illuminance level.

Generally, mobile blinds achieve lower yearly energy demand for heating. COVID Resources.

Protractor-like tools had been used earlier to understand solar geometry and shading* but the Olgyays' developed "Shading Masks"—a new method of graphic representation to understand solar gain and design proper shading.

In their book Solar Control and Shading Devices, they established the following procedure.

Franco, I.M. Efficacy of light shelves: passive, dynamic, and automatic devices related to light and thermal behavior. This is the first book to describe the development of and state of the art in solar shading devices in buildings, detailing all methods of evaluating shading systems according to thermal and visual comfort.

The issue of energy balance in buildings is gaining importance as conventional energy sources dwindle and become more expensive. This can often make the use of glass impractical resulting in the need to invest in expensive solar shading devices.

Glass facades using patented SPD light-control technology reduce the need for air conditioning during the summer months and heating during winter in residential properties. Laws and building and safety codes governing the design and use of Kawneer products, such as glazed entrance, window, and curtain wall products, vary widely.

Kawneer does not control the selection of product configurations, operating hardware, or glazing materials, and assumes no responsibility therefor. External Shading Devices. In the tropical climates, the designer should keep the solar radiation off the opaque solid elements of the building's envelope where possible.

Special care should be taken to shade the windows to reduce the incoming heat and the risk of overheating. Shading Design. The design of shading devices can be quite complex. Solar control and shading devices. By A.

Princeton University Press (London: Oxford University Press), Pp. ; Figs.; Numerous plates.Main typologies of windows, typical of the existing buildings, and innovative solutions, special glasses, and shading devices (fixed shading, mobile shading, roller blinds, and curtains) are described and assessed.

The windows and solar shadings’ appropriate choices are evaluated on .Shading devices of three kinds – internal, external and local – may be attached to glazed constructions.

This is a quick way to specify shading features to all instances of a glazing construction. The results of the shading calculations performed for these shading devices .
