Roof Materials

Because of the steep slope of this roof, the Columbia Roofing & Sheet Metal crew installed 60-mil Sureweld HS (High Slope) TPO. HS TPO contains more fire-retardant chemicals in the membrane to help decrease the spread of fire. In addition, 1/4-inch Securock Glass-Mat Roof Board was installed, which gave the building a Class A fire rating while helping protect against moisture and mold.

TPO Manufacturer: Carlisle Syntec Systems
Roof Board Manufacturer: USG

Roof Report

BMC Issaquah manufactures doors and high-end cabinetry. The industrial building features a 525-square barrel roof that was very wet and experienced dry rot. The crew replaced nearly 150 sheets of plywood throughout the project.

The main challenge during installation was safety because of the extreme slope. The barrel roof is nearly 60-feet tall from the bottom to the top of the barrel, making installation on the edges difficult because crewmembers had to hot-air weld rolled product on a nearly vertical surface. The HS TPO added another level of difficulty while welding along the edges.

The project was completed on May 1, 2015.

ClearWorld and MiaSolé Partner to Provide Flexible Solar Panels

ClearWorld and MiaSolé entered into an agreement in which MiaSolé will be the supplier of flexible solar panels for ClearWorld’s LED lighting system, RETROFLEX.

ClearWorld and MiaSolé entered into an agreement in which MiaSolé will be the supplier of flexible solar panels for ClearWorld’s LED lighting system, RETROFLEX.

ClearWorld LLC, a renewable energy system solution provider, and MiaSolé have entered into an exclusive Multi-MW agreement in which MiaSolé will be the sole supplier of flexible, lightweight solar panels for ClearWorld’s unique LED lighting system, RETROFLEX. “MiaSolé’s unique cell design and flexible module enables a host of non-standard applications,” says Jeff Zhou, MiaSolé CEO. “We are very excited to see our technology used in such an innovative and game-changing application as the ClearWorld RETROFLEX LED Light.”

ClearWorld RETROFLEX, available internationally, is a patented lighting technology that brings clear cost-saving and environmental benefits to clients. RETROFLEX light poles harness solar energy and provide outdoor lighting that preserves resources, requires no moving parts, and is virtually maintenance-free. The RETROFLEX unit supports wireless monitoring for faults, as well as wireless programming, including dimming capabilities. Its unique design allows the panels to be affixed to any dimension, diameter or finish, and will work with any existing pole without compromising the integrity of its design.

MiaSolé FLEX is uniquely well-suited to this application as the lightweight, flexible solar modules wrap around the base of the light structure, eliminating the solar rectangle “wing” design of typical solar streetlight panels and dramatically reducing build-up of dust and bird droppings that decrease module efficiency. The modules on a RETROFEX unit require very little maintenance when compared to glass panels installed at an angle of 30 degrees. The vertical installation also reduces the chance of vandalism and theft, and preserves the aesthetic appeal of the light. In addition, attaching FLEX modules directly to the cylindrical shape of the pole increases resistance to wind. A traditional solar light with rectangular panel can withstand 70 to 90 mph winds while a light powered by a MiaSolé flexible module can withstand 150-plus mph. The curved design also performs better in high temperatures.

MiaSolé FLEX modules are efficient thin-film lightweight flexible modules with an efficiency rating of 16 percent. For ClearWorld, the power generated by a MiaSolé module is sufficient to charge a backup battery that can power an LED streetlight for up to eight days, meaning even in times of inclement weather the light will be operational. According to ClearWorld CEO Larry Tittle, “This exclusive supplier agreement with MiaSolé will provide ClearWorld with the capability to achieve its goal of bringing clear cost-saving and environmental benefits to our clients.”

Because solar-powered lighting is self-contained, it is off-grid and can be used in remote installations and is unaffected by power outages. It is ideal for roadways, sidewalks, apartment and condominium complexes, corporate and industrial parking lots, retail parking lots, university campuses, government institutions, and military installations.
