Charcoal Grey, Dark Dolphin, Aloe Green, and Buffalo Brown are coated with an extra over engineer’s-developed heat-reflective painting system that protects the metal against hot weather conditions and UV exposure from the sun. This heat reflective paint layer incorporates a reflective pigment providing the product with better cooling benefits as opposed to other colour options.

A reflective and emissive colour-coated steel roof is recommended for buildings with high cooling demands, for example, corporate office spaces or shopping malls. This reflective roofing system will significantly reduce the use of a building’s HVAC systems (Heating, Ventilation, and Airconditioning), leading to lower energy use, lesser operational cost, and improved thermal comfort within the building.
