It seems that our downtown design standards have an unrealistic reference to window transparency. Our requirements outline a certain percentage of tint as the maxium.
These standards are fairly new and I have just had the chance to review a project and the tint of the glass has come into question. The problem is that the glass specifications do not call out the percentage of tint. I am guessing that the tint percentage is better applied to automobile window tint and is not an acceptable measure for architectural glass? The specs for the glass to be used in the project I am reviewing have numbers for UV transmittance and such.
Have any of you encountered this?
