Cool roofs combat urban heat islands

The term ‘urban heat island’ (UHI) refers to a phenomenon that occurs in urban areas where temperatures are often significantly higher than in surrounding peri-urban or rural areas. According to BlueScope Steel, a leading multinational supplier of coated steel roofing materials, two of the most effective ways of cooling urban heat islands are to make use of urban forestry and cool roofs.

The Cool Roofs Challenge

Ceratech has launched the Cool Roofs Challenge to raise awareness in the industry about energy saving through roof coating technology, and to try and shift current attitudes which show a persistent preference for darker roof colours. The Ceratech Cool Roofs Challenge promotes the fact that cooling a building’s roof is one of the quickest, most cost-effective and guaranteed methods of reducing ambient heat in all types of buildings.  Explaining how the Cool Roofs Challenge was conceived, Ceratech CEO Chris Hayman says, “The benefits of cool roofs are being recognised around the world. A cool roof can reduce internal temperatures by as much as 45%, lower electricity costs, and significantly reduce roof maintenance for up to ten years, due to the virtual elimination of expansion and contraction in the roof sheeting. It’s obvious that we’re way behind here in South Africa – and we want to ask why?  “We are also asking why, at a time when the world needs to be more environmentally aware and is facing escalating costs of energy, many architects and developers continue to be concerned about roofs being white or in a pale colour, despite the benefits this affords.”
