Pre Painted Steel: Prelaq Energy
Prelaq Energy is a prepainted sheet steel material that can be used for walls, ceilings and roofs, both inside and outside. This unique material enables the energy consumption for both heating and cooling to be reduced, and also offers better thermal comfort than traditional prepainted sheet steel. Prelaq Energy is of two different types: Prelaq Energy Exterior and Prelaq Energy Interior. They can be specified separately with a standard backing coat or combined for maximum energy savings.
The Prelaq Energy Exterior is based on the incident solar energy being reflected and on the energy that is nevertheless absorbed by the building being later emitted. This product offers great flexibility and durability, the thickness of the paint is optimized for wear resistance, weathering resistance and consumption of resources. It has greater durability than standard polyester when exposed to people walking on the roof and other stresses occurring on roofs.
The prelaq Interior is based on the heat from various heat sources, such as the occupants, machines or equipment, being reflected back into the building. Prelaq Energy Interior is suitable if you wish to heat a building to a lower air temperature, but keep a comfortable temperature for long as the building is occupied. Energy can be saved, whilst a comfortable temperature is maintained in the premises. Examples of such buildings are shopping centres, sports halls and a variety of public premises.
