SunStyle Solar Roof is also available in Europe
Expectations of the energy performance of buildings will continue to increase. At the same time, we want to move away from fossil fuels and nuclear energy, and towards renewable energy sources. A fully integrated solar roof that converts clean and unlimited solar energy into electrical energy stays takes this trend into account.
The SunStyle® solar roof connects the two objectives in a harmonious manner: first, as a high quality construction element, it offers sustainable weather protection; and, second, it enables efficient electricity production over the entire roof surface.
Manufacturing and Quality
The SunStyle solar tile was developed as an energy-efficient, long-lasting construction element. The tile’s monocrystalline solar cells integrated into the tile are embedded in a flexible, stabilising layer of ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA). They are protected on the front by hardened solar glass, and on the back by either a layer of resistant plastic backsheet or hardened safety glass (ESG). This engineering, refined over many years, makes SunStyle an extremely long-lasting construction element.
The coloured solar tiles are pigmented on the inside of the front glass using a specially developed technology. Thanks to the use of UV-stable pigments, this enables long-lasting, colour-fast modules to be manufactured. The internal pigment layer also ensures that the self-cleaning function of the glass surface is maintained. The solar tiles are based on proven standard components.
