The sun is a fickle ally, one minute being a friend to plants and tan enthusiasts alike, the next being a bitter enemy to the valuable possessions one has stored for safety. As temperatures begin to climb in southern California, keeping stored items safe from the heat will be on many people’s minds.
At Storbox, our facility not only contains climate controlled storage units, but also features a cool roof to prevent temperatures from rising within our facility. While you may not be storing an ice sculpture collection (those are meant for display, not to be hidden from the world!), there are many items that can be damaged from excessive or prolonged exposure to heat.
But do we at Storbox simply allow the sun to dictate its relationship to us and the people who depend on our facility? No! With the use of a cool roof, your items can be shielded from the menacing sun.
What is a Cool Roof?
A vital aspect of keeping our storage facility, as a whole, cool is our cool roof. This is coated with a bright white layer that reflects the heat generated by the sun. This roof bounces off heat and light back into the atmosphere, rather than absorbing it like other types of roofs. Not only is the roof cooler, but so is the interior of the building! As a result, your storage container will be a comfortable and reliable environment that keeps your items safe, rather than a scorching, swirling vortex of heat and destroyed memories.
But the benefits are not only felt by clients, Planet Earth loves our roof too! A naturally cooler environment means that we do not have to consume as much energy for air conditioning. Keeping the heat and energy consumption of our building down means a happier and safer neighborhood.
