  • shgc [Required]
    A number between 0 and 1 for the solar heat gain coefficient of the glazing system. This includes both directly transmitted solar heat as well as solar heat that is absorbed by the glazing system and conducts towards the interior.
  • t_vis
    A number between 0 and 1 for the visible transmittance of the glazing system. (Default: 0.6).
