Default Light absorbing and sun heat resistant glass

Does anyone know the name of glass which can absorb light and resists sun penetrating it to make sitting underneath too hot in summer.
We're planning an extension/conservatory style next to the kitchen next year. The only light for the kitchen comes from one window which will be changed to a doorway. I'm expecting the kitchen will become darker and probably much darker once we add a covered terrace to the new extension so thought maybe a glass roof (flat) for the covered terrace. This will be south facing so I'm wary of not being able to use the covered terrace and extension when it's very hot in the summer.
Obviously the frame for covered terrace would have to be strong enough to support the glass and snow!

Hi Fen, might be a simpler solution:- (

This gives you option of different densities, reflectivity or patterns. and available from Hungarian companies, this video is from ANVO, other companies no doubt stock the same products.

My brother-in-law built a new covered terrace and the roof was previously plastic transparent corrugated sheets. Awfully hot in the summer months. Same with mother-in-law property. The roof they have is glass but it doesn't seem to do what it says on the tin, so I think I'm gonna have to do some research in finding the best glass supplier and see what they have. Another reason for asking is we may have full width bi-fold doors. Not sure yet because I like to keep the mozzies out at all times!
