Thermo-Seal is an energy efficient, ultra durable, heat-reflective coating that pays for itself over the life of the paint job, whether it is for clay or cementitious roof tiles; or concrete or stucco walls.
Leading South African coatings manufacturer Kansai Plascon has introduced a new paint technology with the launch of Nuroof Cool, with the Herotech Enviroshield™ formulation. This breakthrough paint technology provides a coating that reflects at least 30% of the infrared light off roof surfaces, reducing the interior temperature of homes or other buildings by up to 8°C and potentially allowing for lower energy consumption within the building.
The historically renowned University of Fort Hare, Southern Africa's oldest historically black university, with alumni that include Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo and Chris Hani, has in recent times focused on developing its East London campus in order to meet a much needed demand for higher education in the city.
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.
