Prismatic glazing

Whilst the systems so far discussed rely on the reflection of light, prismatic glazing operates by refracting incoming light. The system consists of a panel of linear prisms (triangular wedges) which refract and spread the incoming light to produce a more diffuse distribution. The view out is substantially restricted, but the system can be used as an alternative to the reflective louvre system without some of its drawbacks. Glare can be somewhat reduced too. Maintenance is virtually eliminated if the system is installed between the panes of double glazed units.

Renewable Energy 101

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat and wind. These sources are naturally and constantly replenished, which is why they are deemed as renewable. The usage of renewable energy sources is very important when considering the sustainability of the existing energy usage of the world. While there is currently an abundance of non-renewable energy sources, such as nuclear fuels, these energy sources are depleting. In addition to being a non-renewable supply, the non-renewable energy sources release emissions into the air, which has an adverse effect on the environment.
