Increased temperature in the building might be a problem not only for facilities with no air conditioning installed but also for those, where dedicated systems are functioning well, providing satisfactory thermal comfort inside. In most cases though, comfortable temperature in the production facility or warehouse is directly related to really high running costs of air conditioning devices, especially in countries with hot climate.
High exploitation costs of AC devices was also a big problem in the big logistic center in Madrid, Spain. The facility was covered with roof consisting of metal panel sandwich, thermal insulation from 200 mm thick mineral wool layer and two layers of bituminous membrane of total thickness of 6 mm.
To solve the problem of high air conditioning costs the owner of the warehouse decided to apply COOL-R coating. The application was carried out using airless spray machine and two COOL-R layers of total thickness of 1 mm were applied.
The effect of COOL-R application was improving thermal comfort inside the building directly by reduction of roof temperature, but also a number of other properties such as:
– Delivering of solution supporting proper storage conditions for goods inside the building
– Improving efficiency of people working in the warehouse
– Generating savings in air conditioning running costs
– Application of seamless renovation waterproofing coating with 10 years warranty
