A cool roof, provided by the application of high technology heat reflective roof coatings, reflects and emits the sun's heat back to the sky, instead of transferring it into the building below. "Coolness" is measured by two properties, solar reflectance and thermal emittance.
In a wide variety of climate zones, a cool roof can substantially reduce the cooling load of a building, providing several direct benefits to the building owner and its occupants.
Aged asbestos roofs (Fibro) are continuing to deteriorate and are a cause for concern for the health and safety of the community.
Metro Industrial Roof Restoration is the number one installer of the Fibroseal asbestos encapsulation system in Australia, assessing and carrying out asbestos roof treatment throughout Australia.
In recent years, owners of Asbestos (Fibro) roofed facilities, have come under closer scrutiny from their insurance companies. This is because payouts to re-roof hail damaged buildings are constantly rising.
This has led to insurance companies, underwriters and brokers to look closer at asbestos encapsulation roof repairs as a viable alternative to re-roofing.
Aged, industrial skylights in asbestos or steel roofs can be the cause of leaks and also increase the requirement for artificial lighting, resulting in higher power bills.
Metro Industrial Roof Restoration utilise the "Cool-lite" skylight sheeting manufactured in Australia by Ampelite for all industrial skylight replacement.
If existing aged fibreglass sheeting is replaced with "Cool-lite," transmitted heat and glare are reduced, while air conditioning efficiency is improved.
