Enhance your structure’s green rating by adopting sustainable roofing
If one of your aspirations is to make your structure more sustainable, this information will help you understand how you can make a difference by adopting eco-friendly roofing solutions.
These days, using sustainable building materials is critical in new building design considerations and construction. With growing concerns over climate change there is a conscious effort to move towards ecologically safer solutions.
Sustainable construction means using renewable and recyclable materials when building new structures, as well as reducing energy consumption and waste.
Architects and designers are always looking for aesthetically superior, environmentally friendly products and solutions to help create efficient, long lasting and sustainable buildings.
Let us see few demands within architectural community while choosing their building material:
- Recyclability is a number one priority and demand for materials that eliminate environmental impact is on the rise
- Energy Efficiency with smaller carbon footprint, is yet another sought after properties while choosing a roof.
- Maintenance Free structure with longevity and durability that promises greater performance in adverse climatic conditions is pertinent in today’s unpredictable environmental conditions.
Steel roofing and wall cladding by LYSAGHT® from Tata BlueScope Steel are a great solution for people who want to practice conscious sustainability. With a robust sustainability policy, dedicated to both – managing operations responsibly and continuous improvement, Tata BlueScope Steel is committed to design and manufacture of sustainable products and solutions, that are lighter, last longer and use few resources to produce them.
LYSAGHT® Roofs make the best sustainable solution:
a. Recyclability: This could be well reiterated with their products made from 100% COLORBOND® steel and ZINCALUME® steel that are environment friendly as they can be recycled and are reusable conforming to the sustainability quotient stipulated by GreenPro certification.
b. Paint technology: The paint system of COLORBOND® steel does not contain any heavy metal like lead, chromium, cadmium, etc. making it environment friendly. Instead, it uses stable resin & inorganic pigments for paint durability which are sustainable in nature.
c. Water harvesting: The design of deep ribs on LYSAGHT® roofs and accessories used, make the roofing system compatible for water harvesting.
d. Light weight of steel: Reduces the overall weight of the structure, ensuring less carbon footprints. No welding or wastage during construction; hence no damage to local flora and fauna.
e. Integration with solar roof panels: All our profiles are compatible with roof mounted solar applications.
f. Cool Comfort: LYSAGHT® profile made from COLORBOND® steel is backed by energy efficient Thermatech® technology that enhances the thermal performance (Higher Solar Reflectance value (SRI)) of the roof. In moderate to hot climates, compared to roofing materials of similar color with low solar reflectance, COLORBOND® steel with Thermatech® can reduce annual cooling and energy consumption by up to 15%.
g. Cost and Energy savings: All profiles offer extruded type of skylight for daylight saving. Extruded profiles ensure less leakages enhancing skilled workmanship. In addition, accessories like louvers, turbo vents, ridge vents ensure smooth air-flow which reduces overall energy consumption.
LYSAGHT® products are used in most progressive segments of India’s infrastructural, manufacturing, warehousing and commercial applications contributing to the green requirements of the project.
