Glass in building. Determination of the emissivity

Status : Current   Published : March 2019



What is this standard about?

This document specifies a procedure for determining the emissivity at room temperature of the surfaces of glass and coated glass.

The emissivity is necessary for taking into account heat transfer by radiation from surfaces at the standard temperature of 283 K in the determination of the U value and of the total solar transmittance of glazing.

The procedure, being based on spectrophotometric regular reflectance measurements at near normal incidence on materials that are non-transparent in the infrared region, is not applicable to glazing components with at least one of the following characteristics:

a) with rough or structured surfaces where the incident radiation is diffusely reflected;

b) with curved surfaces where the incident radiation is regularly reflected at angles unsuitable to reach the detector while using regular reflectance accessories;

c) infrared transparent.
