Q: What glass should I choose?
Glass should be selected for your roof lantern dependent upon shading, position of the roof to the sun and room functionality. Generally, if your roof is exposed to excessive/full sun, then a solar controlled option with a possible tint may be required, but if your roof lantern position is to be sheltered from excessive/full sun, the clear glass without the solar control would be better. Glass tints & temperature gain may affect the function of the room below a roof lantern, so selection is not only about its efficiency, but to its effects on natural light (tints).
