Heat protection

Sun heat is reflected by the radiant barrier
Additional waterproofing is conveyed by the radiant barrier layer

Save money with your roof

What happens on your roof ?

During the day, the sun heats the tiles, and the heat is transferred to your concrete deck. This deck accumulates heat for the full day. When the sun shines, the external temperature becomes cooler than the concrete deck and it starts radiating back the accumulated heat inside and oustide, which results in your roof heating your house, adding to the natural heat.

Studies showed that 80% of the heat in a house comes from the roof, which is permanently exposed to the sun radiations.

To fight against this heat, you need to put on your roof three items (click on each for more information):

  1. a performant radiant barrier that will reflect a maximum of sun radiations and prevent your deck from warming. (on opened structures, it stops the radiation from entering your building)
  2. an air entry at the bottom of your roof, to ensure a possibility for fresh air to enter
  3. an air exhaust at the top of your roof, so that the hot air can escape

By implementing such a roof package (radiant barrier+ air circulation), MONIER has experienced a decrease of about 3ºC to 5ºC of the internal temperature of the building, which may lead to major cost saving in air conditioning and improve considerably the comfort in the buildings.

As a passive system, these elements together work the entire day. When the house is cooler, airier and fresher, you use less air-conditioning. It's a chain reaction. This will help you save on your electricity bill knowing that the price of the KwH will always increase. With such a cool ambience to live in, you may not even need devices such as air-conditioners or fans to disperse the warmth in the house, hence dissuading the need to buy them.

Simply put, it is a natural and passive system to limit heat transfer through the roof. 

Maintaining an airflow below the tiles along with a radiant barrier, reduces inside temperature of buildings
