The impact of hardscape such as roads, sidewalks, courtyards, and parking lots is an important element in earning the Heat Island reduction credit. Legal information Privacy Policy Accessibility.

A fraction of this absorbed energy is conducted into ground and buildings, a fraction is convected to air leading to higher air temperaturesand a fraction is radiated to the sky. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.


Solar Reflectance Index Measurements for LEED

No other units of measurement are included in this standard. Combined Sustainable Sites credits 7. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

The SRI makes it possible for finishes to be categorised based on their capacity to reduce the urban heat island effect. Jump to main contents of current page.

Solar Reflectance Index Measurements – Surface Optics Corp.

Many roofing manufacturers have already obtained independent laboratory testing of the SRI of their product catalog. Related Videos More videos. Retrieved June 3,from http: Da Vinci 11 Bizkaia – Zamudio. As a consequence, we strive to broaden the scope of accreditation year after year to include the new tests required in the industry. Determination of solar reflectance and thermal emittance, and subsequent calculation of the relative temperature of the surfaces with respect to black and white wstm temperature defined as Solar Reflectance Index, SRImay help designers and consumers to choose the proper materials to make their buildings and communities energy efficient.


Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Retrieved May 29,from http: Your desired roofing or hardscape SRI specifications may be readily available in the form of a manufacturer datasheet which can be used as LEED documentation.


Surfaces with low emissivity cannot effectively radiate to the sky and, therefore, get hot. Heat island effect — roof. Table 2 shows the requirements for hardscape and shade providing architectural devices and structures. Ed Bizkaia – Zamudio. Direct Normal and Hemispherical on 37 Tilted Surface. Through a system of international agreements, the results issued by a laboratory accredited by ENAC are recognised in over 70 countries around the world.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. It also helps other agents such as architects, 1e980, and building owners and managers to choose suitable materials and finishes that contribute to reducing surface temperatures, thereby reducing the energy consumption of the buildings.

Our lab will provide a report that includes the values shown in Table 1 for the provided sample s. Asttm reflectance and thermal emittance are important factors affecting surface and near-surface ambient air temperature. For equivalent conditions, the lower the emissivity of a surface the higher its steady-state temperature. It is defined so that a standard black surface reflectance 0. Green Building CouncilOctober 4. Heat Island Effect — Non-Roof and 7. By calculating the SRImanufacturers of building products are able improve the properties of the finishes, develop new products that comply with the requirements set out in the certification, and consequently, better position their products on the market.


The method described here gives the SRI of surfaces based on measured solar reflectances and thermal emissivities of the surfaces. This accreditation is the result of a clear commitment to remain at the forefront of technical solutions in optical characterisation, and to provide such service for our customers.

Astondo Bidea, Edificio Go to main menu of page. The method is asrm to calculate SRI for surfaces with emissivity greater than 0. To satisfy the requirements of the Heat Island reduction credits, a certain percentage of the hardscape and roofing must have a high solar reflectance index. The SRI value makes it possible for finishes to be categorised based on their capacity to reduce the urban heat island effect.

Surface Optics does not perform aged SRI testing. Download PDF 8,49 Mb. Surfaces with low solar reflectance, absorb a high fraction of the incoming solar energy. Access to home page of website. Green Building Council
