Crown International Steel Building Systems®
has added two new options to its pre-engineered steel building kits
designed to enhance the buildings cooling capabilities. When new
buildings are manufactured by Crown Steel, customers now have the
option of choosing reflective paint and insulation, both of which play
a major part in regulating building temperature, reducing operating
cost and the use of energy.
"Most people think saving energy will cost more, but we are
offering a more cost-efficient way to build green," says Scott
Blackwell, CEO of Crown International Steel Building Systems. "Our
customers will know they made the right building choice from the
beginning and be reminded each time they save on energy costs.
Now when paint colors are chosen for a new metal building, a
reflective coating will be added to the steel sheeting.
Ceram-A-Star® 1050 acts as a thermal coating to keep the inside
of buildings cooler. This cool coating will not only enhance the
appearance of your steel building, but protect the environment and put
money back in the customer's pockets by providing huge savings on
energy bills and allowing for energy credit under the federal tax code.
A well insulated building also helps reduce energy loss.
Ayr-Foil insulation is an environmentally friendly product designed to
stop air infiltration to give better ventilation and cooling system
control. It reflects radiant energy up to 97% to keep energy transfer
to a minimum.
These design features do not cost much money to add to your
building system and significantly reduce the energy needed to make
buildings comfortable. Both features have been awarded the ENERGY
