Comfort and Energy Efficient UV-protected Polycarbonate Roofing

Until recently, roofs were one of the least efficient parts of a building or public infrastructures. Now, energy-efficient polycarbonate roofs with UV protection are at the forefront of innovation, helping to increase the efficiency of the building and construction envelope.

Usage of UV-protected polycarbonate roofs are increasingly being applied to improve how well a building operates. The energy-saving advantages of its features include:

  • Lowering roof temperatures keeps air conditioning bills down
  • Helping to make indoor temperatures more even, boosting comfort
  • Mitigates the heat island effect by keeping ambient temperatures down
  • Boosting indoor air quality

Majority of the sunlight will enter through the sloping surface. Since the slope is transparent, a high percentage of light can enter. But since sunlight is on a slopping manner, the impact of heat is reduced which helps in creating a more comfortable interior.

The strongest or hottest heat by the sun happens during noontime when the sun will be directly above a roof. At this instance, sunlight will strike on the flat embossed surface, which deflects around 50% of light. With this, only around 50% of the sun’s heat is able to penetrate the interior.
