Kingspan's wall systems offer high-performance, sustainable roof finishes, including solar reflective Cool Roof® rated options that can reduce peak cooling energy demand by up to 15%. Cool Roof® rated solutions comply with codes and green building programs. When applied these finishes can contribute to several LEED® credits.
Cool Roof® coatings are intended to reduce heat islands (thermal gradient differences between developed and undeveloped areas) to minimize impact on microclimates and human and wildlife habitat.
As required by LEED® credit 7.2, Sustainable Sites - Heat Island Effect - Roof, the cool color palette for Kingspan roof systems are LEED® compliant, specifying highly reflective and high-emissivity roofing (emissivity of at least 0.9 when tested in accordance with ASTM E408) for a minimum of 75% of the roof surface.
