Pre-finished steel for cladding

Colorcoat® High Reflect

The optimum reflectivity for an internal liner, maximising daylight and reducing requirements for artificial lighting.

Colorcoat® High Reflect is a bespoke liner designed with maximum reflectivity to reduce energy requirements, associated operational costs and CO2 emissions.

Carefully manufactured in a controlled process to ensure consistent quality and is suitable for interior roof and wall liner trays, cassette systems, composite panels in dry and unpolluted environments.
