Solar Roof SUNSTYLE®
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. Aesthetic «With its fish-scale pattern, the SUNSTYLE® solar roof is reminiscent of the centuries-old slate roof.» With its fish-scale pattern, the SUNSTYLE® solar roof is reminiscent of the centuries-old slate roof. The traditional slate and shingle roofs in the Alpine region inspired the design of the diamond-shaped pattern. This installation principle guarantees optimal water-tightness and roof stability. The installation pattern and the seamless adaptation to the individual roof shape create a homogeneous structure. The SUNSTYLE® solar roof has an extremely low construction height and can be integrated elegantly into the building. It combines design independence with a harmonious integration into the existing roofscape. The SUNSTYLE® solar roof is ideal for energy-efficient renovations of protected buildings. With its homogeneous structure, it can be integrated unobtrusively into the building stock. The diamond-shaped solar tiles are similar to historic slate roofs, allowing SUNSTYLE® to contribute to the preservation of the landscape. In addition to the basic tiles, tiles without solar cells for roof areas that are not exposed to the sun and transparent glass tiles that bring natural light into the building are also available. Corner and side tiles, which result in the ideal roof finish and also produce electricity, complete the product range. The system can be adapted perfectly to special roof shapes using dummy tiles, which can be cut to size on site. We collaborate with renowned partners to complete the installation with inverters and possible storage solutions, or to extend it to generate hot water.
