Applied to meet the most stringent industry specification, AAMA 2605, the finished metal panels added a specialty metallic clear topcoat to maximize sparkle and enhance color intensity. The solar-reflective pigments in Fluropon SR help to resist heat absorption, contributing to the buildings’ energy efficiency. The energy-efficient coating also supports ENERGY STAR®, U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED®, and Cool Roof Rating Council program criteria. The school buildings’ dashboards and other features enable students to monitor their consumption of energy, food, and water, and to appreciate the global impact of local behavior.
