T: % Transmittance R: % Reflectance A: % Absorption SC: Shading Co-efficient CF: Colour Fastness Dim out: 1= High light penetration, 4= Low light penetration, 5= Blackout
UV Block: the percentage of UV light blocked by the fabric GTOT: SG = Single Glazed, DG = Double Glazed, TG = Triple Glazed, DG LE = Double Glazed Low Emissivity.

SHADING CO-EFFICIENT
The solar heat gain with the blind at the window divided by the solar heat gain with no blind at the window. The lower the shading co-efficient, therefore, the higher the efficiency of the fabric. The test results in the table above have been achieved using a single 6mm glass glazing system.

G TOT
A measure of total solar energy that passes through the glazing system and the blind fabric.
