COLORBOND® steel and Thermal Comfort
For more than 50 years, COLORBOND® steel has revolutionised Australian building design, transforming our homes and our workspaces along the way.
21 out of the 22 colours in the COLORBOND® steel Classic and Contemporary colour range incorporate our unique Thermatech® solar reflectance technology1, designed to reflect more of the sun's heat on hot sunny days by optimising solar reflectance properties.
Combining COLORBOND® steel with Thermatech® technology with appropriate insulation can help buildings maintain greater thermal comfort all year round. In the summer, Thermatech® technology can help your roof and your building stay cooler by reflecting more of the sun's heat.1 In winter, the "cooling" effect of a roof made with COLORBOND® steel with Thermatech® technology is greatly reduced compared to summer because the sun is lower in the sky, and days are shorter and often overcast.
Cooler in the summer heat
It's widely known that lighter colours are better at reflecting heat. With Thermatech® solar reflectance technology, even the darker colours in the COLORBOND® steel range have solar reflective properties which may help your building stay cooler. Thermatech® technology is designed to reflect more of the sun's heat on hot sunny days, which can mean less dependence on air-conditioning1.
Reduced thermal stress on roof
COLORBOND® steel with Thermatech® technology absorbs less heat from the sun resulting in reduced stresses on your roof and its materials1.
Our steel products can be purchased from the rollformers, that often sell to builders, installers and specialist distributors.
