COLORBOND® Coolmax® steel in the colour Whitehaven® can help reduce the annual cooling energy costs of a building by up to 7.5%* compared to COLORBOND® steel in the colour Surfmist®, which is amongst industry leaders in solar reflectance.
Recent studies (which can be found at www.colorbond.com/coolmax) show that compared to a standard roof made from COLORBOND® steel in Surfmist®, COLORBOND® Coolmax® steel in Whitehaven® can lower the internal temperature of a non air conditioned building by between 0.5 to 2°C*. Additionally when compared to ZINCALUME® steel, it can lower the internal temperature between 2°C and 4°C*.
By maximising the thermal performance of a building and helping to reduce the ongoing cooling energy costs, a roof made from COLORBOND® Coolmax® steel can pay back the initial investment premium within 5 years when compared to COLORBOND® steel in Surfmist®... Read more
