* Above Sheathing Ventilation (ASV) - using battens and counter battens to create an optimized convection and drainage plane between between the roof sheathing and roof substrate.
* Radiant Barriers installed within the ASV assembly which prevent 97% of radiant energy from entering the attic space.
* Thermally Sealed Air Space which effectively increases R-values by eliminating thermal bridging associated with movement of the ambient temperature air mass across a roof deck assembly. The effective R-value of air space is at a maximum with no air circulation.
The Cool Roof Batten™ provides a simple and cost effective solution for creating a Radiant Above Sheathing Ventilation System (RASV) beneath either a stone coated metal roof or a concrete tile roof.
The Cool Roof Batten™ is a metal roof batten system which leverages the proven benefits of Radiant Barriers and ASV - Above Sheathing Ventilation
Optimum thermal insulation is vital to minimize the energy needed to heat and cool a building envelope. This SLIDESHARE presentation simplifies the topic of thermal insulation.
