The plan is to place sliding glass windows on one side of a bridge connecting two buildings near the Arabian Sea in Mumbai.
The windows are going to go into the west facing area, which currently has plastic sheets covering it.
As you can see, the east facing side is open. Also, we plan for a couple of the west facing sliding windows to contain wire mesh for ventilation. So I am wondering if it makes sense to use something like Solar Control glass (or similar) on the west side, or not. Or should just plain glass be used?
My feeling is that something like Solar Control glass, which controls the sun heating up the interior, or some other kind of glass to trap UV rays (like low-E glass) only makes sense in an enclosed space, and does not make sense in a passage which is open to the outside. But input is welcome.
