From Dubbo to Cairns a range of non-air conditioned warehouses and factories are benefiting from substantial cooling. Simply by applying SkyCool they have made the interior cooler than fully shaded outside air.
Mid-western New South Wales is well known for its hot summers. Situated west of Dubbo is the DuPont company, Pioneer Hi-Breed producers of high quality crop seeds to the agriculture industry.
An important factor in the processing and storage of seed is temperature control. In the central west of New South Wales daily temperatures can often reach as high as the mid-forties in the shade. This often translates into temperatures under metal roofs of around 50°C to 80°C, depending upon the building configuration. Even with a large external air exchange systems, internal temperatures are regularly well above the daily ambient.
This problem is traditionally addressed through either mechanical plant or very costly types of insulation. The common problem with these methods is that they are all attempting to combat solar heating after it has heated the building exterior.
In light of this fact, Pioneer Hi-Breed decided on a different approach. They would apply a coating to the exterior of their buildings, particularly the roofs, to minimise solar heating at the point of entry - the roof metal. The objective of the project was to see what effect preventing the roof metal from being heated by the sun would have on the internal environment; and from that determine the overall cost effectiveness this approach.
SkyCool | Highly Effective Building Cooling
SkyCool Pty Ltd is a company of the new millennium, formed specifically to bring the SkyCool thermal coating to the world community. We are very proud of the fact that SkyCool was developed in Australia and is attracting interest from around the world. Since establishment the company has had the opportunity to prove both the uniqueness and the effectiveness of SkyCool from the tropical north of the country to the temperate zones 3,000 km to the south. SkyCool Pty Ltd is headquartered in Sydney with its family of customers ranging from Cairns to Melbourne.
With annual sales growth exceeding 100%, SkyCool Pty Ltd is developing a strong presence in the 350 million square metre metal roofed commercial building market.
As our growing list of SkyCool users clearly shows, our growth has come from the discerning "big end of town." These leaders in their fields are sharply attuned to energy conservation -- not only as excellent corporate citizens, but also for the benefit it brings to the prudent management of operational costs.
To ensure that these important benefits remain for the long term (SkyCool is warranted for 10 years) the product is distributed within the commercial, industrial and goverment markets on a project basis. That is, the application is retained by the company as a critical element of its quality assurance program. To that end, we welcome enquiries from professional, high capacity applicators who are interested in undergoing qualification for SkyCool projects
