What are the benefits to using a Thermo Materials® fluid-applied membrane system?
Building Consultants, Architects and Engineers can specify a simple, green, sustainable solution that saves building owners and facility managers money, eases installation for contractors and satisfies Title 24 and LEED requirements.
A Thermo Materials® fluid-applied membrane system (reflective roof coating) cools and protects the roof surface. Benefits of a fluid-applied reflective membrane system include:
- Reduces the carbon footprint of the building by reducing the CO2 emissions.
- Are environmentally friendly (“green”).
- Minimizes the environmental burden.
- Results in reduced respiratory health risks and the risk of heat-related deaths, especially in a “Heat Island” area.
- Slows premature aging of a roof due to high surface temperatures and UV degradation.
- Reduces landfill materials - at least 10% of landfill waste is made up of roofing materials.
- Saves on the cost of air conditioning resulting in lower energy costs overall of the building by reducing the peak electrical demand level.
- Increases the effective “R” value of insulation.
- Reduces the temperature inside the building it covers by 5-15 degrees.
- Reduces the roof surface temperature by 20-60 degrees.
- Creates a more comfortable environment in areas where there is no air conditioning.
- Increases the efficiency of HVAC units.
- Saves energy, both for the building owner, and for the utility supplier.
