The high reflectivity, emissivity and solar reflectance index (SRI) of Berridge metal roofing helps mitigate the heat island effect. Berridge’s Kynar 500®/Hylar 5000®. cool metal roof colors are optimal for reducing energy consumption, particularly where cooling loads dominate. For LEED compliance please reference the SRI values for the Berridge color finishes below.
SOLAR REFLECTANCE INDEX (SRI):
Incorporates both solar reflectance and thermal emissivity in a single value. SRI measures the roof’s ability to reject solar heat, defined such that a standard black (reflectance 0.05, emittance 0.90) is 0 and a standard white (reflectance 0.80, emittance 0.90) is 100.
RECYCLED CONTENT OF BERRIDGE METAL
Berridge metal products have a high recycled content and are 100% recyclable at the end of their lifespan. Using building products that incorporate recycled materials helps reduce the impacts resulting from the extraction and processing of natural resources. Post-consumer steel recycled content: 25.6% Pre-consumer steel recycled content: 6.8% TOTAL RECYCLED CONTENT: 32.9%
The use of Berridge Manufacturing metal roofing products can directly contribute up to two LEED v4 credits for Heat Island Reduction, but when a “whole building design” approach is implemented, metal roofing combined with other concerted efforts, products and building systems can contribute to other LEED v4 credits. Reference the technical section at www.berridge.com for more information. While every effort has been made to provide accurate information, applicants for LEED certification should verify compliance with a LEED expert.
