Industrialization is the most detrimental consequence of urbanization. Maximum of the infrastructure created are of metal. Lakhs of sq ft are being created of the metal. Metal being very conductive, gets heated up very soon when exposed to the Sun. Normally one experiences more heat in the industrial areas than in Cities.
It's impossible to stop the development but we can simultaneously find an effective solution to combat heat aggression on the metal roofs. Metal sheets have the tendency to absorb the atmospheric heat. Surface temperature in the atmosphere adds to the rise in temperature and thus the UHI impacts & this heat gets ingressed indoors making the premises act like an oven & reducing the thermal comfort.
Increased temperature have many consequences - Fire in solvent storages & textile industries;
Sprinklers bursting; Poor air quality in the automobile, tyre industries; Product quality challenge and wastage in food & beverages industry; decreased efficiency of the workers, decreased day light working hours, increased heat stress, ill health impacts, dehydration, absentees, limitations in productivity.
Every Green Building needs to address the green features under the following categories:
Increased frequency of Heat waves - Increased Heat Ingress,
Increased Heat - Increased Electricity bills for Cooling
More Heat- More expansion/ contraction of building - More Cracks and Water leakages
More Leakages - Bad Indoor air quality due to dampness,
Because of all of the above -
Less productivity & absentese of labor
Quality of the products compromised
Machinery Getting deprecated faster & Increased cooling time
All this results in increased costs and reduced profits for Industries
Heating of structures & Water leakage from the metal structures with limited eco friendly options -
Panache is not only a product provider but also a solution provider for any building requirement. Panache offers high-performance energy-saving solutions through its extensive range of products and services for an integrated system of – Heat Reflective Cooling, Thermal Insulation & Waterproofing to envelop complete construction ensuring the construction is cool, crack-free, algae & fungus free & watertight. All the products of panache are Green Pro & GRIHA certified.
The use of Panache products in any project will help the Industry:
Reduce energy consumption, thus, Cooling costs
Reduce CO2 emissions,
Reduce VOC emissions,
Reduce maintenance costs
Increase of Thermal Comfort.
Panache thermal insulation segment suffices the requirement of energy efficiency and manages the efficiency of the AC usage, managing the sustained cooling of the premises by preventing cooling loss.
The complete thermal insulation envelop with mineral & cement base material is the USP of Panache, providing solution to the problem of crack development. The flagship products for thermal insulation are -
The Eco-friendly water-based waterproofing products, Systems & water repellents of Panache help to provide waterproofing to the structures. This reduces the maintenance cost along with the improved air quality indoors, preventing the roofs & walls from dampness.
The high LRV(light Reflection Value), and Low VOC interior paints provide improved air quality with no smell, No Lead, and No Chromate.
Water-based wood finishes- sealers, lacquers & Oil finishes also contribute to the Green building material without VOC & heavy metals, making the labor to work with nonhazardous materials adding to the health benefits for them and the occupants.
A Cool Roof coatings consists of a binder (usually an organic compound or silicone compound) blended with pigments and other additives to provide two main benefits: protection of roof membranes for longer roof life cycles; and reflectivity of solar radiation, for lower air conditioning costs.
The main components of most Cool Roof coatings are the binder, pigment, water and reflective pigments. Water serves as a liquid carrier, which provides viscosity, allowing the pigment and binder to be spread on the roof as a thin coating. The majority of white coatings in use today are water-based coatings
An energy efficient , white, reflective, elastomeric coating manufactured by Panache can reflect up to 92% of visible light, keeping the roof surface much cooler than with aluminum, black, or non-reflective roofing materials. Lower temperatures mean less energy usage, and translate to money saved. Elastomeric roof coatings protect the roof substrate adding years to your roof, plus saves against costly tear-offs and re-roofing.
