Tinted glass also known as endothermic glass, which usually blocks about 50% of sunlight. For example, 6 mm thick blue glass can only pass 50% of solar radiation, and Euro grey and bronze heat absorption glass can only pass 25% of sunlight. Therefore, the heat absorbing glass is suitable for the doors, windows or  buildings curtain walls in hot areas that require both lighting and heat insulation, to provide thermal insulation and anti-glare effects, create a beautiful cool atmosphere. However, the sunlight that can be used for sterilization, disinfection and deodorization in urban residential buildings is half blocked by these tinted glass.

In addition, some households have installed screens with 70% light transmittance. Combined with clear glass, the total light transmittance is about 61%, which is just right, but if it is equipped with tinted glass, its light transmittance Only 35% will definitely affect the lighting.
