45 Years of Experience Under One Roof
If ever there was a country that could benefit from Thermatech® solar reflectance technology, it’s Australia. Considering we’ve spent the last 45 years creating and evolving products for Australian homes and workspaces this advancement should come as no surprise.
Thermatech® technology was first introduced in 2008 and now significantly improves the solar reflectance properties of 21 COLORBOND® steel standard roofing and walling colours.
More comfort all year round
Add insulation to Thermatech® technology and you’ll have a building that remains comfortable all year round. Naturally, your roof is your first line of defence so anything you can do to help reflect the heat is a bonus. That’s exactly what Thermatech® does.
Come winter, your northern walls are the best place to capture heat from a sun that is lower in the sky and insulation is am effective way of preventing heat loss. As for your roof during winter, heat loss is decreased as the sun is lower in the sky.
Take a weight off your wallet
Thermatech® technology can help reduce energy usage significantly. The more heat reflected from your building the less you need to cool it. In fact, COLORBOND® steel Thermatech® technology can reduce cooling energy consumption by up to 20% compared to roofing materials of similar colour with low solar reflectance. All of which means you save money while helping reduce emissions from electricity generation.
But Wait There’s More
Because COLORBOND® steel Thermatech® technology absorbs less heat, protecting your and its supporting structure from extremes in heat. As a result, the stresses placed on your roof are reduced thereby helping it last longer.
Better still, with Thermatech® technology even darker colours perform better with no lightening of their colours. So you can choose from a wider range of colours while still enjoying a thermally efficient roof.
