71 thumbs up
We have a glass canopy over a plaza with compliant hardscape. Do we have to include the glass's SRI? Does anyone know of a default SRI for glass?

Just wanted to bump this back into the conversation. Does anybody have a similar experience with an exterior glass canopy and have any knowledge of how that is considered for Heat Island effect?
