Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
Go to main menu of page. To satisfy the requirements of the Heat Island reduction credits, a certain percentage of the hardscape and roofing must have a high solar reflectance index. Related Videos More videos. The SRI value makes it possible for finishes to be categorised based on their capacity to reduce the urban heat island effect.
Green Building CouncilOctober 4. It is defined so that a standard black surface reflectance 0. Heat Island Effect — Non-Roof and 7. Combined Sustainable Sites credits 7.
Our lab will provide a report that includes the values shown in Table 1 for the provided sample s. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. For equivalent conditions, the lower the emissivity of a surface the higher its steady-state temperature.
The method described here gives the SRI of surfaces based on measured solar reflectances and thermal emissivities of the surfaces. Astondo Bidea, Edificio By calculating the SRImanufacturers of building products are able improve the properties of the finishes, develop new products that comply with the requirements set out in the certification, and consequently, better position their products on the market.
Ed Bizkaia – Zamudio. Retrieved May 29,from http: Surface Optics does not perform aged SRI testing.
Many roofing manufacturers have already obtained independent laboratory testing of the Asstm of their product catalog. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Through a system of international agreements, the results issued by a laboratory accredited by ENAC are recognised e1890 over 70 countries around the world.

The SRI makes it possible for finishes to be categorised based on their capacity to reduce the urban heat island effect. Direct Normal and Hemispherical on 37 Tilted Surface. Download PDF 8,49 Mb. Table 2 shows the requirements for hardscape and shade providing architectural devices and structures.

As a consequence, we strive to broaden the scope of accreditation year after year to include the new tests required in the industry. Jump to main contents of current page. Heat island effect — roof. A fraction of this absorbed energy is conducted into ground and buildings, a fraction is convected to air leading to higher air temperaturesand a fraction is radiated to the sky.
Your desired roofing or hardscape SRI specifications may be readily available in the form of a manufacturer datasheet which can be used as LEED documentation.
