|Introducing the latest technology in energy saving.|
Super Thermic technology is a must for any tunnel which is to be heated. Good thermal films retain 85% of the stored heat.
SunMaster SuperThermic retains 95% of stored heat.
Heat Retention - How it Works
Thermic films allow short wave infra red from the sun to heat up the soil and contents of the tunnel. When the air temperature drops the hotter objects radiate the heat back again as long wave infra red. What a thermic film does is reflect this heat wavelength back to the ground/contents again, reducing the heat lost through the film. Until about 15 years ago a thermic film would reflect back into the structure about 65% of this heat. With the introduction of SteriLite Premium this was increased to 80-85% reflection. Now with SunMaster SuperThermic this is boosted to a massive 94-95% reflection/heat saving.
Initial research is showing that this will give energy reductions of as much as 30% over a non thermic film.
