These tiles are suitable for roof top / terrace due to ability to reflect solar heat. Solar Reflectance Index is 95. The ceramic wall tile is 9 mm thickness with >32% open pores which also helps for heat insulation. These abc tiles are suitable for Green Buildings targeting IGBC-LEED certification. abc Weather Proof S R I Tiles are ECBC compliant.
Abc Weather Proof SRI Tiles glaze coat is designed to achieve max whiteness, high scratch hardness and semi glossy-matt and embossed to function as anti skid. SRI 95 (certified value) confirms our outstanding quality.
A GLOBAL SOLUTION FOR ROOFING: CONFORMING TO USGBC / IGBC LEED AND ECBC.
Water proof and cool roof Rs 90 per sq ft (Materials and tile fixing with warranty)
|Cool Roof requirements as per ECBC norms:
(Reflective tiles or Heat Resistant tiles) (ASTM E 1980-11, EN 673:2011 and EN 410:2011)
|abc Value||How much weathering course is required for cool roof?|
|Solar Reflectance Index||>78||96|| A building receives most of the heat through roof by radiation. Heat moves in and out of your home (or about any other structure) in four ways: by conduction (which R-Value measures), and by convection, radiation (which S.R.I value measures) and air infiltration.
Hence a minimum R value of 2.1 or 3.5 is specified by ECBC.
Combination of S.R.I and R value will give the best & everlasting terrace.
abc offers solution for R value also (T&C).
