SHIELD (HEAT REFLECTIVE)

OVERVIEW

A unique, multilayered, non-porous, dense, dry-look, and thermal insulation product designed to integrate seamlessly with the concrete roof system. The product is manufactured to last a lifetime with a thoughtful balance of new technology and a unique manufacturing process.

The product is environmentally sound, commercially successful, and suitable for a wide range of projects in hot climatic conditions on multiple substrates and goes far beyond industry standards.

Let’s understand the concept

A cool roof tile is designed in such a way that it reflects more sunlight and absorbs less heat than a standard roof tile. Nearly any type of building can benefit from cool roof tiles. Just as wearing light-coloured clothing can help keep you cool on a sunny day, cool roofs material is designed to reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than a standard roof. Shield Cool Roofs reflect and emit the suns heat instead of absorbing it. By reflecting the heat of the sun instead of absorbing it, they keep buildings cooler and reduce the amount of energy needed to cool them. Coolness is measured by two properties: solar reflectance and thermal emittance.

Both properties are measured from 0 to 1; the higher the value, the cooler the roof. Standard or dark roofs can reach temperatures up to 150°F or more in the summer sun. Shield cool roof tile under the same conditions could stay 50°F cooler and save energy and money by using less air conditioning. Cool roof tiles help in reducing bills by decreasing air conditioning needs, decreases roof temperature which in turn may extend roof service life.

FUNCTIONALITY

High Albedo

A high solar reflectance capability that will reduce heat island effect, save energy – indoor temperature reduction in buildings without air-conditioning and cooling load reduction agent in the air-conditioned buildings

Lifetime performance

A durable thermal insulation product that most often lasts the lifetime of a building; reduced resource requirement for replacements due to natural disasters, wind-driven rain, moisture damage and vermin.

Economical cost

More economical than other roofing products on a life-cycle basis; significant energy and in-maintenance savings

Disaster resistance

Resistance to damage from hail and high winds and can sustain winds in excess of 125 miles per hour that would strip off most other roofing material

GREEN ASPECT

• Beyond Kilowatts – benefits of saving energy (25%-40%)
• Minimally processed product with reduced non-renewable material use
• Longer life cycle
• Negligible environmental footprint
• Some part of Stone Grinding Slurry waste is also used in the non-wearing layer
• Reduced heat ingress and flux when the sun cooks the roof
• Reduced smog from urban heat island effect – high SRI, high thermal resistance and thermal transmittance
• Toward safe, healthy built environment
