  • Green roofs reduce energy demands but watering costs in warm climates can be high

    Green roofs can cool buildings in summer and prevent heat loss in winter. A new study suggests, however, that in the warm climates of southern Europe the additional cost of watering means that 'cool roof coatings’ may be more cost effective. In addition to insulating a building, other recognised benefits green roofs include improving air quality in urban areas; reducing rainfall ...

With our increased awareness and commitment to ...

  • ASTM E2102 - 11a standard test method for measurement of mass loss and ignitability for screening purposes using a conical radiant heater

    This test method provides a means for screening materials, products, or assemblies, for the mass loss, and ignitability they exhibit under specified heat flux exposure conditions. As an option, the test method is also suitable for screening for the heat released, by using a thermopile method (See Annex A2). ...
