Client: Canyon Middle School

Location: Castro Valley, California

Challenge: Canyon Middle School was experiencing 85-95ºF temperatures indoors.

Solution: Liquid NanoTint was applied on  windows to reduce UV and Infrared solar penetration into the building.

“The two rooms have a 9ºF differential, at 5 pm. The temperature in the room with Liquid Nanotint is: 73.5ºF. The temperature in the room without the Nano insulation is: 82.4ºF. This reading was done after the 2 rooms have been exposed to direct western sun the entire afternoon without shading. This could represent significant energy savings in summer months as the air-conditioning load will be reduced.”
