“The heat load has been reduced internally by 5-8 degrees Celsius and has been so successful that additional roofing around the facility has also been treated. Therefore, reducing the Air Conditioning demand within the critical demand period of the day.”
Twelve months ago Fairfield Primary School started investigating solutions to the extreme heat that our gym was experiencing during the summer months. The building was designed under the Building Evolutionary Revolution in 2010 and provided poor insulation against the heat. After working with various experts, we established that refrigerated and evaporative cooling were not viable options due to the design of the building. Therefore we proceeded to work with Cocoon who used an infrared membrane coating on the roof and we also installed four Arius fans. This has been a big success – this year we have had a hot February and have been able to conduct PE lessons in the gym (which we couldn’t have previously). We have had equally positive feedback from our gym hirers.
Cocoon Cool Roofs provide a triple impact to your businesses bottom line
We are proud of the power of our offering and the benefits that it has for you, your business and the planet.
No disruption to normal business operations means while we are working so can you.
Reduced investment in air conditioning capital costs, reduced maintenance and running costs.
Cheaper than outright roof replacement and avoids additional costs such as design and engineering fees or HVAC removal.
No disruption to the use of premises and services.
Reduced safety risk to the public as roof sheeting is not removed during application of coating thus no risk to public under roof or surrounding the building.
Construction time reduced.
Coating reduces heat transfer and provides R value (insulation) for the building.
Reduced amount of waste, demolition and material going to landfill.
Reduced use of natural resources for steel roofs.
Reduced carbon footprint due to passive cooling.
