*TS - Solar Transmittance, RS - Solar Reflectance, AS - Solar Absorptance, TV - Visual Transmittance *SHGC = Solar Heat Gain Coefficient *1/4 CL = 1/4" Clear Glass, 1 HA = 1" Heat Absorbing Glass *Fabrics Installed Internally, Zero-Degree Profile Angle *Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) shown calculated according to Office of Building Technology, State and Community Programs, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, U.S. Department of Energy's definition of SHGC. SHGC represents the percentage of solar heat gain that is transmitted to the interior through the glass and shading system. If you are using glass whose performance is listed in terms of SC, you may convert to SHGC by multiplying the SC by 0.87.
