USGBC’S NEW PILOT LEED CREDIT RECOGNIZES BENEFITS OF “COOL” WALLS
May 25, 2021
Feeling Is Believing
Although we see this building has consistent color, there is a considerable difference in how heat is absorbed. One side has been coated with traditional paint and the other with a TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® Coating System. This unseen difference can be significant in the temperature that is felt. This cooler feeling can provide reduced cooling costs, lower urban temperatures gain, and extended coating lifecycle. Since 1961, TEX•COTE® has provided coating solutions on high-profile, and landmark projects in the commercial and residential markets. TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® Coating Systems represent a revolutionary concept in exterior wall coatings specially formulated to reflect the sun’s heat. The benefits of “Cool” Walls have been recently recognized by the USGBC in a new LEED Pilot Credit by providing heat island mitigation with “Cool” Walls. Tested and proven by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National and Oakridge National Laboratories, makes this system the perfect fit for your next project.
