Providing solutions to mitigate urban heat islands
FortyGuard combines data science, predictive analytics with advanced materials as an urban cooling system.
The startup enhances existing city surfaces and lowers their heat index without changing the existing urban composition in a cost effective manner.
Efficient | Cost Effective | Effortless
Roadways absorb and accumulate solar radiation, and as it does the surface temperature increases. The hot surface temperature heats the surrounding air and, during the night, releases the accumulated heat and makes night time even warmer.
Once FortyCoat™ has been applied, the surface will regulate its temperature increase, decreasing the absorption of heat by the roadways, leading to a cooler night time.
