Based on research we know that increased heat has an impact on livestock, especially in high humidity climates. Artificial shade, such as metal sheds, is regularly used to shelter livestock with success since they significantly reduce Black Globe Temperature. Several studies reported between a 2 and 11°C decline in Black Globe Temperature under a shade compared with direct exposure outside.
Standard or dark roofs can reach temperatures of 150°F or more in the summer sun. A professionally Fluid Applied Reinforced Roofing System, under the same weather conditions, could stay more than 50°F cooler and reduce the Urban Heat Island Effect.
Livestock and poultry have actually seen an increase in yields when providing properly ventilated heat shelters. Fluid Applied Reinforced Roofing Systems not only reduce the radiant heat but also increases the lifespan of the metal roof.
