A pioneer in green technology, MONIER thrives on energy efficiency, sustainability and ecological consciousness. Holding on to these fundamentals, it believes in exploiting the full potential of roofs so as to improve the quality of lives and homes.
To date, MONIER leads the industry in environmentally-friendly roofs with its two most significant innovations — MONIER CoolRoof and MONIER SolarRoof Systems. The former restricts heat transfer through the roof and, without mechanical devices, naturally cools the building’s interior by up to 10°C with the use of efficient construction techniques, heat reflection and ventilation. The system encourages airflow to reduce heat retention that can help save up to 30 per cent in electricity consumption.
The latter, working in tandem with MONIER CoolRoof, converts solar energy to renewable and sustainable use, to make the home earth-friendly and reduces electricity bills by up to 15 per cent.
In pursuing its on-going green agenda, MONIER is now venturing into the third ‘E’ in its Energy Efficient roofing solutions equation (E3): Environment, in particular, the care and preservation of the environment. This is embodied in the latest offering from MONIER – the MONIER EcoRain Rainwater Harvesting System.
Why MONIER EcoRain?: Malaysians have to contend with annual heavy downpours and floods during monsoonal seasons and convectional rain in the hot, dry months.
The MONIER EcoRain Rainwater Harvesting System takes full advantage of this situation by tapping into nature’s free and abundant resource, collecting, storing, and re-cycling for use when it is scarce or occasioned by need.
This facility from MONIER not only conserves water by supplementing piped water supply but also replaces it safely without any inconvenience.
The MONIER EcoRain Rainwater Harvesting System is easy to install and simple to maintain, providing an alternate and hassle-free yet effective supply of harvested rainwater that saves water costs whilst helping the environment. Should the storage tank run dry during periods of heavy usage, the system automatically switches to the mains water supply without disruption to the water supply.
Benefits of MONIER EcoRain: Apart from the advantage and ease of drawing, at no charge, from nature’s bountiful supply, the other benefits include:
• Providing a replacement to water supply for household needs;
• Reduced utility bills, as homeowners can now be sure of an alternative water source;
• Peace of mind for householders in having an independent supply of water during the dry season or at times of water shortage or rationing; and
• Preservation of the environment.
To this end, MONIER EcoRain, the latest addition that completes the MONIER family of E3 roofing solutions, reflects MONIER’s green direction in offering its customers a comfortable and better living environment.
