How does ThermaCote® reduces the temperature and energy consumption and improves performance in your school?
Hotter Classrooms make it harder for students to learn.
Students´ ability to learn is undermined when their classrooms are too hot. On average, a school year that was hotter by 0,5 degrees Celsius correlated to a loss of 1 percent of a years´ learning.
The impacts of additional heat exposure from climate change are likely to be more acute. Surfaces in schools such as buildings, playgrounds, and other paved areas, absorb and retain heat from the sun (80% of the sunlight that contacts them) and they can lead to higher air temperatures in schools (1ºC to 5ºC inside).
It will have effects on comfort, health and performance of the students. Besides heat increases the energy consumption and costs of air conditioning.
If you want to reduce the temperature and energy consumption in your school, you should seriously consider applying ThermaCote® on your roofs, facades and pavements.
ThermaCote® is a thermal barrier coating.
ThermaCote® is a Cool Material that coats the substrate to provide a durable low-maintenance finish that also reflects visible, infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths of the sun (Solar Reflectance), reduces heat to the underlying substrate (Thermal Conductivity) & radiates absorbed, or non-reflected solar energy (Emittance).
ThermaCote® can be applied on roofs, facades and pavements, which bring down temperatures in schools (up to 38 % less), and improves performance of students.
Too ThermaCote acts as a weather barrier, reducing the run time for air conditioners, providing energy savings, and improving comfort and health of the students. ThermaCote® satisfies the ratings for program of Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS)
