Super Therm® Employee Comfort
Better for employees comfort
Reflecting 95% of the heat (99% UV, 92% Visual Light and 99.5% Infra Red) means that heat from that light is prevented from entering the building, the level of comfort is therefore ambient and not radiant based. This heat load prevention on roofs and walls greatly reduces temperature and therefore electricity bill savings through reduced KW power use. There are minimal demands on heating and cooling systems which will cost businesses more over time.
Employee working conditions are greatly improved. Large warehouses and trucking firms have benefited where they need to improve employee conditions by lowering heat means less employee heat stress related illnesses, sick leave, workers compensation claims and turnover costs. This also works for animals in agriculture.
Due to this unique insulation property, you can maintain the interior temperature in a building at the human comfort level all year round reducing the need of traditional insulation material such as fibreglass that can deteriorate quickly after several years. However Super Therm® with fibreglass insulation is a powerful combination. This, in turn, will cut down the energy costs associated with heating and air-conditioning drastically. This benefit is more pronounced with old buildings, especially those which do not have space or structure to allow room for fibreglass insulation. After applying Super Therm®, some old buildings have seen their electric consumption cut down by almost 80%.
Reducing heat; improves comfort
Super Therm® has been thoroughly tested and proven and is used by many corporations and applied to millions of m2 around the world since it was first applied in 1989. It has continued its long lasting proven success for over 30 years and the benefits, environmental rewards and sustainable results are comprehensive.

Improving the Work Environment with Super Therm®
The warehouse was hot inside due to the heat entrance from the roof in summer, and they were looking for a solution to improve the work environment. Super Therm® (Cool Therm in Japan) was selected to reduce the room temperature and to improve the work environment.
In the comparison with the uncoated building (export warehouse) with the same building structure, the max. room temperature reduction was 5.1℃. The workers recognised the great effect, as well, so they are planning to apply Super Therm® to the export warehouse where they measured the uncoated result this time.
They record the room temperature of the same building on a constant basis, and according to their records the temperature reduction compared to the year before the application was -8℃ (Max).
