Solar Heat Gain is the heat from the sun being collected and contained per unit floor area of space. It is measured in W/m2 or BTU/ft2 hr. Factors which influence this are the performance of the glazing, tints or coatings, patterned glass (depending on coverage and transparency of the pattern), internal/external shading devices, shading effects of neighboring buildings, trees or external features etc.
