Heat Island Effect — Non-Roof and 7. Many roofing manufacturers have already obtained independent laboratory testing of the SRI of their product catalog. Direct Normal and Hemispherical on 37 Tilted Surface. Legal information Privacy Policy Accessibility. Access to home page of website.

It is defined so that a standard black surface reflectance 0. Ed Bizkaia – Zamudio. Go to main menu of page. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. As a consequence, we strive to broaden the scope of accreditation year after year to include the new tests required in the industry.

Our lab will provide a report that includes the values shown in Table 1 for the provided sample s.

Solar Reflectance Index Measurements for LEED

Historical Version s – view previous versions ast, standard. Related Videos More videos. 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. Green Building Council 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.


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. Download PDF 8,49 Mb. The method is intended to calculate SRI for surfaces with emissivity greater than 0.

Surface Optics does not perform aged SRI testing.

Green Building CouncilOctober 4. Retrieved June 3,from http: 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. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. Da Vinci 11 Bizkaia – Zamudio.

Surfaces with low emissivity cannot effectively radiate to the sky and, therefore, get hot.

Combined Sustainable Sites credits 7. The SRI value makes it possible for finishes to be categorised based on their capacity to reduce the urban heat island effect. The SRI makes it possible for finishes to be categorised based on their capacity to reduce the urban heat island effect.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not e19880 as part of the standard. The impact of hardscape such as roads, sidewalks, courtyards, and parking lots is an important element in earning the Heat Island reduction credit.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory e9180 prior to use. For equivalent conditions, the lower the emissivity of a surface the higher its steady-state temperature.


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 described here gives the SRI of surfaces based on measured solar reflectances and thermal emissivities of the surfaces.

A fraction of this absorbed energy is conducted into ground and buildings, a fraction is convected to air leading to higher air temperaturese19880 a fraction is radiated to the sky. Retrieved May 29,from http: Heat island effect — roof. Astondo Bidea, Edificio Solar reflectance and thermal emittance are important factors affecting surface and near-surface ambient air temperature.

Through a system of international agreements, the results issued by astmm laboratory accredited by ENAC are recognised in over 70 countries around the world. Jump to main contents of current page. It also helps other agents such as asrm, builders, 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.

Table 2 shows the requirements for hardscape and shade providing architectural devices and structures. Surfaces with low solar reflectance, absorb a high fraction of the incoming solar energy.
