H&R Johnson (India), one of India’s leading companies, announced the launch of a new technology in tiles namely the ‘Johnson Endura Cool Roof SRI (Solar Reflective Index) Tiles. SRI measures the surfaces ability to reflect solar heat and emit infrared heat. These new tiles from Johnson Endura provide an SRI value > 90 against the minimum SRI value of 78 for the roof of the building to qualify for LEED certification as per the U.S. Green Building Council. With this revolutionary technology these unique range of tiles keep the harsh rays of the sun off the building and bounces them back into the atmosphere. The ingenious glazing process on the tiles keep the room temperature cool naturally and therefore helps reduce load on external cooling appliances like the airconditioners or coolers.
Some of the key benefits of Endura Cool Roof SRI are: reduce surface temperature by 10 to 20 degree Celsius, improve indoor comfort, reduce cooling requirement and save electricity, reduce conduction of heat into the building, reduce the ‘heat island effect’ in cities and reduction in global warming and saving of ozone layer. The tiles are offered in matte finish which provides anti-skid surface making them safe and practical thereby being applicable in areas such as building roofs, balconies, terraces, pavements and exterior facades cladding.
