How it Works?
Super Roof can be applied directly onto existing roofs or be used as a new roof. Performance of Super Roof is location dependant - based on South Africa's climate zones which are closely linked to the irradiance potential of the specific area. The images below show the irradiance and climate maps for reference.
The table below shows a general insulation thickness required and climate information for specific climate zones. Always check with your architect if unsure.
|Climate Zone||Direction of Heat Flow||Minimum R Value||Insulation Thickness||Irradiance||Average Rainfall|
|1||Up||3.7 (m2/K/W)||85 mm||5.6~5.7 kW/m2||200 ~ 800 mm|
|2||Up||3.2 (m2/K/W)||70 mm||5.3~5.6 kW/m2||200 ~ 600 mm|
|3||Down & Up||2.7 (m2/K/W)||60 mm||5.1~5.7 kW/m2||400 ~ 800 mm|
|4||Up||3.7 (m2/K/W)||85 mm||4.8~5.6 kW/m2||200 ~ 600 mm|
|5||Down||2.7 (m2/K/W)||60 mm||4.4~4.7 kW/m2||800 ~ 1,000 mm|
