DURADEK Cool-Dek Line Up!
The Cool-Dek line includes our top 5 “coolest” colors – up to 16% cooler than our warmest colour (Legacy Barnwood) and 18% cooler than concrete! Arctic Quartz, true to its name, is our #1 coolest colour!
Remember, you don’t need any special, patented thermal technology to have a walkable surface – even on those hot summer days.
The Duradek colors classified as Cool-Dek provide a cooler option for bare feet, pet paws, and even the living or storage space under your deck. This was created to compete with our competitors marketing spin on cool technology. Our claims are substantiated by a combination of our internal heat testing and Altas Material SRI Testing.
For those that want to know: What is SRI?
A composite index called the Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) is used by the U.S. Green Building Council and others to estimate how hot a surface will get when exposed to full sun. The temperature of a surface depends on the surface’s reflectance and emittance, as well as solar radiation.
The Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) is used to determine the effect of the reflectance and emittance on the surface temperature.
If a deck surface that is cooler under-foot is an important feature for you, choose one of the 5 attractive options in Duradek’s – Cool-Dek line!
