† The extent to which InfraCOOL® may translate to internal
benefits in warm conditions will depend on variables such as colour
choice,building design (including roof pitch, materials &
window placement), insulation, ventilation, occupancy use, shading,
location, climate and ratio of exposed roof area to floor area.
Colour choice can still make a difference - Cool Roof White and
Pastel shades are the coolest choice overall.
the Cool Roof Residential Colour Selector with FACT SHEET for more
InfraCOOL® increases Total Solar Reflection (TSR) to make
colours cooler than their standard equivalent. Higher TSR % means
COOLER surface temperature.
TSR comparisons for each colour are provided on the Colour
Selector and Full TSR reports including Surface Temperature
estimates to ATSM E1980 are available below
