With 11 COLORBOND® steel cool roofing colours featuring low Solar Absorptance values of less than or equal to 0.45*, architects and specifiers now have a wide colour choice that achieves deemed-to-satisfy compliance within the National Construction Code (NCC) Section J energy efficiency provisions. Terroir architects specified COLORBOND® steel Surfmist® in a Classic finish for the expansive, visually striking roof on the Penrith Anglican College Performing Arts Centre, knowing the choice of a lighter colour would lower solar absorption and in turn lower the buildings ongoing HVAC costs.
