Due to their accurate shape and highly reflective material, these systems are enclosed between a double-glazing insulating unit. These systems reflect direct sunlight backwards and mainly transmit diffuse radiation. An important advantage is that these systems do not affect the colour of daylight and do not require maintenance. Numerous optical designs with various optical properties exist. 4. Through special surface treatment of three-dimensionally designed metal or plastic optical structures, compound parabolic concentrators (CPCs) can be constructed for the directional selection of radiation.

05BTU ft–2 h–1 ºF–1, this provision allows for the use of reduced insulation under a roof with high solar reflectance. The envelope prescription does not set a minimum requirement for the thermal emittance of the roof. Hence, it may credit the use of a solar-reflective but hot bare-metal roof, as addressed in the discussion of the Energy Star programme. 1-1989 for commercial buildings, which neither prescribes nor credits cool roofs.
