The SRI value makes it possible for finishes to be categorised based on their capacity to awtm the urban heat island effect. Many roofing manufacturers have already obtained independent laboratory testing of the SRI of their product catalog.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Through a system of international agreements, the results issued by a laboratory accredited by ENAC are recognised in over 70 countries around the world.

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. It is defined so that a standard black surface reflectance 0. 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. Green Building Council Ed Bizkaia – Ee1980.
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.
For equivalent conditions, the lower the emissivity of a surface the higher its steady-state temperature. Combined Sustainable Sites credits 7.

Determination of solar reflectance and thermal emittance, and subsequent calculation of the relative temperature of the surfaces with respect to black and white reference temperature defined as Solar Reflectance Index, SRImay help designers and consumers to choose the proper materials to make their buildings and communities energy efficient.
The method is intended to calculate SRI for surfaces with emissivity greater than 0. The method described here gives the SRI of surfaces based on measured solar reflectances and thermal emissivities of the surfaces.
Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Solar reflectance and thermal emittance are important factors affecting surface and near-surface ambient air temperature. 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 xstm customers. Surfaces with low emissivity cannot effectively radiate to the sky and, therefore, get hot.

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. Jump to main contents of current page. Surface Optics does not astn aged SRI testing.
