From the Tech Team: Introducing SOLARHIDE

The DaVinci Roofscapes Technical Team is excited to share that we have completed the certification process that will allow us to offer ONE underlayment to achieve a Class A Fire Rating with ALL of our products! Yes, you heard that right! Previously, each product had its own requirements which could be cumbersome and difficult to remember, but just one layer of SOLARHIDE™ will do the trick across all of our product lines!

Class A Fire RatingMade from raw materials, SOLARHIDE is produced with woven and non-woven fabrics as well as pure aluminum. According to Wayne Foster, VP Sales and Marketing for Eco Chief who distributes this product, SOLARHIDE is designed to act as a radiant barrier, that can reflect up to 97% of the radiant heat it encounters. The durable underlayment is 100 percent recyclable and exceeds Miami-Dade specifications. The rip-resistant SOLARHIDE product is now available from DaVinci Roofscapes in a 10 square roll (48 inches wide by 250 feet long) with 25 rolls per pallet.

The cool thing is, this energy saving underlayment can be installed with either the shiny side up or shiny side down. Shiny side down creates a more walkable surface and help keep your customer’s attic cool, and shiny side up will provide optimal performance as far as solar reflection.

At DaVinci, we will be working on doing our own testing, so we’ll be able to quantify the energy savings this will provide for our customers. Contact us today to learn more!
