To assist in the specification process, Vicwest is pleased to provide the following listing identifying the Solar Reflectance and Emissivity test results, as well as the Solar Reflective Index (SRI), for our WeatherXLTM (SMP) colours plus the most popular metallic system and unpainted finishes. These results
relate specifically to the Sustainable site section, Credit 7.2 of the LEED® document Heat Island Effect: Non-Roof and Roof. These colours have been
tested in accordance with the methods outlined in the LEED® document and supporting documentation is available upon request. It is important to note that LEED® requires a minimum SRI of 78 for low slope roof applications (≤ 2:12) and of 29 for steep slope roof applications (>2.12).
