"Do it right, do it with Coat-Rite"

Cool Roof

coolroofKeep things cool with coat-rite and cool roof… Save $$$ on your electricity bill and reduce your carbon footprint.

Cool Roof reflects more of the sun’s radiation and can improve the cooling efficiency of existing buildings, making it the perfect choice for residential and commercial applications.

  1. Cool Roofs reflect light energy in the first instance – before heat is absorbed, meaning insulation & cooling efficiencies are maximised.
  2. Comparative Studies identify significant cooling energy savings are possible using Cool Roof Technology.
  3. In non-air conditioned facilities such as workshops and warehousing, cool roofs can translate to cooler working and warehousing facilities.
  4. By lowering cooling energy demand, Cool Roofs have been identified as part of an effective mitigation strategy, to reduce global carbon emissions.

Cool Roofs have been shown to offer benefits across a range of installations including air-conditioned and non air-conditioned low rise commercial buildings. Benefits are more direct in single storey or low rise buildings with low pitch roofs due to the higher ratio of exposed Roof area to floor area and where insulation levels are low. In each situation,internal benefits will be influenced by factors including Colour Choice, Building Design (including roof pitch, materials & window placement), Insulation & Ventilation, Occupancy Use, Shading, Location and Climate conditions†.
