Uni-Solar PVL-68T 68 Watt Laminate
The innovative UNI-SOLAR product line includes building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) a lightweight, flexible solar electric system designed to serve a dual purpose of roofing and power generation. It is also an ideal solution for new construction or re-roof situations.
- Architecturally pleasing systems that do not distract from the natural lines of the home
- Complete design freedom with ridge to eave coverage possible
- Solar panels are structurally and aesthetically integrated roofing elements
- Cost effective installation through easy and fast fixing of large area roofing elements using standard installation techniques
- No back-ventilation of solar panels necessary (lightweight laminates are easy to handle and can be field applied directly on metal)
- No support structures needed
- UL Listed as prepared roofing cover
- Modules and inverter UL Listed
- Integrated with flat 16” wide (minimum) metal roofing systems
- Wind and water-tight roof
- Suitable both for renovation and for new construction
- 20-year power output and 5-year system warranty
- Standard junction box or weather-tight quick connect system
- “Peel & stick” adhesive backing capable of withstanding 160 mph wind loads
