Heat & Weather Protection for tropical climate
The main challenges in tropical climates are mold and algae formation due to condensation and high air-conditioning consumption due to heat load. To meet these challenges, Bioclimatic Solutions materials combine the right balance of heat resistance, water resistance, mold resistance, and the right level of vapour permeability.
Bioclimatic Solutions were nominated as the world’s first and only Green Insulation (GREEN APPLE) certified insulating materials, being adopted by the SPEC GREEN platforms in the UK and GERMAN ENGINEERS ASSOCIATION and they are ISO 9001:2000, CE, TSE, ERA, TCL, JAS_ANZ, TÜV PSB and SETSCO certified.
Passive cooling is a building design approach that focuses on heat gain control and heat dissipation in a building in order to improve the indoor thermal comfort with low or nil energy consumption. This approach works either by preventing heat from entering the interior (heat gain prevention) or by removing heat from the building (natural cooling). Natural cooling utilizes on-site energy, available from the natural environment, combined with the architectural design of building components (e.g. bioclimatic envelope), rather than mechanical systems to dissipate heat.
