If you are searching for cooler summers and savings on your electricity bill, you may be wondering how heat reflective roof membranes work.
At Globalcote we understand the full effects of the harsh Australian climate. And the damage it can do to your roof – which is why we have formulated Infracote – an infrared reflective coating.
Reflective Roof Membranes
The roofs surface captures enormous amounts of the sun’s radiation due to the large surface area and angle of exposure. To prevent your home heating up, especially if you have a darker coloured roof, you need to reflect the heat away from the surface.
these rays, Globalcote has formulated a reflective roof membrane called
Infracote works by using technology to target the invisible infrared portion of the sun’s radiation and reflect it away from the roof surface.
Infracote Features and Benefits
Along with protecting your roof against the sun’s harsh rays, Infracote also has several benefits including;
- Incorporation of nanotechnology
- Reflecting infrared radiation
- Reducing heat penetration
- Reducing cooling costs
- Reducing carbon footprint
- Reducing Urban Heat Island effect
Not only does Infracote meet Australian standards, it is also Australian made and owned, environmentally friendly and offers a 12-year material-only warranty.
Total Solar Reflectance (TSR)
Reflectance (TSR) measures the reflective capability of a roof coating. This
can be influenced by weather events such as wind and cloud cover.
Maintaining solar reflectance is directly related to the surface remaining clean. The surface of the roof remains clean with Infracote because the technology in the membrane helps prevent dirt from sticking to the roof. Instead, dirt easily comes off the roofs surface and assists in keeping the solar reflectance at its most effective.
Rather than absorbing the heat into roof, Infracote offers up to 88%* of solar reflectance meaning your home stays cooler for longer.
