S.R.I Weather proof tiles are ECBC compliant and are suitable for Green Buildings targeting IGBC-LEED certification.
Patented in design with a reasonable choice of colours and designs, SRI tiles are glazed to achieve maximum whiteness and scratch resistance. The glossy matt finish is embossed and delivers an anti-skid surface as well. The grooves are also glossy and this facilitates easy cleaning.
With a SRI - solar reflectance index of 95, water resistant by nature and waterproof upon installation with the correct techniques, our product is assured to deliver impeccable performance and excellent value for money. The weather proof tiles have an open pore ratio greater than 32% and this offers additional insulation as well. Salt spray tested and certified by government laboratories, we guarantee that our high SRI tiles - weather proof tiles products do not lose colour, blister, peel, or flak if correctly installed using recommended guidelines.

|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).
