The PHP Solar Panel Mounting System’s base material is made from injection molded high density/high impact polypropylene with UV-inhibitors and antioxidants. The framing features a carbon steel finish that is hot dip galvanized per ASTM A 123. This system addresses height, wind and heat concerns with regard to solar panel installations.
The PHP Solar Panel Mounting System is designed to support a variety of solar panels and can be used for any type of roof; from flat roofs to roofs sloped up to 2 in 12. Seismic and high wind applications are available for solar support applications.
Currently solar panels are designed around ABS plumbing vent pipes, otherwise the installer incurs additional costs for relocation. As a result, there are times when empty spaces on rooﬂines where a solar panel could have otherwise been placed. The Solar Roof Jack resolves this problem with technology that redesigns the vent pipes so that solar panels can be installed on top of them without sacriﬁcing the functionality of the original vent pipes and utilizes solar roof space.
The beneﬁts of the Solar Roof Jack:
- Additional panel sales
- Increased power production for customer
- Total utilization of solar roof space
- Reduced labor costs and installation timelines
- Creates visually pleasing designs
- American made product
Since roof vent pipes prevent a customer from utilizing a lot of their roof space, they are being limited to the number of panels they can ﬁt on their roof and therefore losing potential savings that additional panels would have generated. In addition, the installer can now sell more panels because they are no longer limited to working around the vent pipes and are able to save on labor costs because they no longer have to relocate the exposed pipes.
With the Solar Roof Jack the overall appearance of the panels is consistent and helps guarantee that the client gets what they want.
Solatube introduces a square diffuser for residential Solatube Daylighting Systems.
The patented Spectralight Infinity transition box takes the round tube into the square hole at the ceiling. The square diffusers are available in both the Solatube 160 DS (10-inch model) and Solatube 290 DS (14-inch model) and are available in OptiView or Just Frost styles.Solatube International Inc. invented TDDs (also known as tubular skylights), which harvest and distribute daylight in homes and commercial buildings. Solatube Daylighting Systems are installed as part of energy-saving and sustainability efforts in residential and commercial spaces in over 122 countries.
Using patented technology, a Solatube Daylighting System harvests daylight at the rooftop, transfers it down a reflective tube (which bends up to 90 degrees and can be up to 70 feet or more long) and distributes it evenly into an interior space through a diffuser at the ceiling.
The Intecto integrated solar PV tile is specially designed to fit seamlessly alongside standard residential and commercial roof tiles and is available in a range of colours to match existing roof coverings.
The system has been specifically developed to enable architects, house builders and roofing contractors to provide an effective rooftop PV solution with a conventional appearance and without any compromise in solar power production.
Installed directly and securely onto wood roofing battens using a guaranteed fixing system, the frameless Intecto units sit flush with conventional interlocking concrete, clay and terracotta tiles and can be used to provide a whole roof PV solution if required.
The lightweight tiles reduce roof loading, eliminating the need for any roof reinforcement, and contribute to higher Code for Sustainable Homes and BREEAM ratings.
The special roof integrated tiles have been developed to meet design and aesthetic considerations, and can be used to meet specific planning conditions. They are also appropriate for use in heritage and green-belt areas, where the requirement is for rooftop solar PV systems that maintain the integrity of individual buildings and their local environment.
The Intecto roof tiles incorporate the same high-quality PV cells used in Romag’s existing range of PV products, enabling the system to provide the same weatherproofing and protection measures provided by traditional tiles, but with the added benefit of renewable energy generation.
Available in black, grey and terracotta colours, the new range is fully IEC and MCS certified and complies with other international and European building industry regulations and roofing performance standards.
EternaTile can be installed on any existing sloped roof with a 3:12 or steeper without engineer approval because of its light weight. The tile product is designed to have a lifetime warranty and the Eterna”G” replaceable solar module makes the entire product line a catalyst in the building sector.
- Cool roof coatings on tile keep it cool and improve energy production. The cool roof coating has high emissivity on the sun side to allow heat to be radiated out and low emissivity underneath, making the tiles a radiant barrier.
- The efficient above-sheathing ventilation on the tile system provides a chimney effect as warm air flows between the tiles and the roof deck and out from the building. In winter, the air gap between the tiles and roof deck are insulating, reducing the heat transfer out of the attic.
The Miasole FLEX module bonded to the TPO roof systems eliminates the need for racking, concrete ballast or roof penetrations. The FLEX low profile PV module has the same wind uplift rating of the roof system design, making FLEX the best solar choice for high wind zones. Weighting less than 0.7 pound/square feet, FLEX is idea for roofs with low load capacity and buildings in high seismic areas.
The Miasole FLEX modules simplify project logistics, reduce labor costs and installation.
MiaSolé is a producer of thin-film Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS) solar cells and panels. Founded in 2004, MiaSolé has evolved from a Silicon Valley start-up to the world leader in thin film solar panel efficiency. In its Sunnyvale, Calif., facility, MiaSolé has demonstrated 15.5 percent module efficiency in production. Miasole became part of the Hanergy family of renewable energy technology companies in 2012.
