Our stainless steel metal panels provide solar-reflectance and an anti-patina exterior facade on the Burlingame Point parking ramp in San Francisco.
Rigidized® Metals’ InvariMatte® micro texture clads the parking ramp at Burlingame Point. Stainless steel is not only a very efficient reflector of solar energy, it also substantially reduces insulation requirements. Unlike other bare metals that patina, or paints that oxidize, stainless steel retains all of its original solar reflectance and energy efficiency for as long as it remains installed. Because the accumulation of dirt can have a detrimental effect on solar reflectance, the InvariMatte® surface is dirt-resistant.
