Mermet fabrics with KOOLBLACK™ Technology know how to resist heat. Mermet’s unique, patented KOOLBLACK™ Technology increases the energy efficiency of dark sunscreen fabrics to levels comparable with light colours.

 

KOOLBLACK™ delivers reduced cooling costs and improved comfort, with the glare control and view-through of a conventional dark screen fabric.

With Mermet’s KOOLBLACK™ Technology you get all the benefits of dark coloured sunscreen fabric – such as superior view-through and exceptional glare control – but with a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) similar to a light coloured sunscreen fabric. In fact, KOOLBLACK™ shows up to 22% improvement in SHGC compared to standard dark screen fabrics.

KOOLBLACK™ Advantages

  • Extreme heat reduction

  • Reduced cooling costs

  • Exceptional glare control

  • Improved comfort

  • Comfortable view-through

  • Elegant streetside aesthetics

KOOLBLACK™ Applications

The distinct design advantages of KOOLBLACK™ Technology – such as exceptional view through and glare control – make it ideal for residential or commercial environments where minimising glare and/or maximising the view are priorities.  It’s also perfectly suited to environments where energy savings are important.

Another design advantage offered by KOOLBLACK™ Technology is its streetside aesthetics, which make it an ideal choice for those projects where this is a particular consideration, including commercial projects such as multi-level apartment or office buildings.

These design advantages, combined with KOOLBLACK™ Technology’s ability to deliver low heat absorption, high reflectivity and low SHGC – and therefore reduced cooling costs – means that KOOLBLACK™ Technology is ideally suited to high-end residential and commercial projects.

G-Value or SHGC is a factor that shows how effective a glazing system – glass & window covering – is at blocking heat from solar radiation. The lower the SHGC, the higher the protection from heat gain.
