Englert's SunNet thin film, solar laminates (BIPV) form the top layer of the sandwich, generating electricity from dawn to dusk. These laminates are made from lightweight and unbreakable self-adhesive materials and attach directly to the standing seam roof panel. They work well in cloudy, low light conditions and are excellent on curved roof surfaces. SunNet BIPV laminates are low profile and blend in nicely with most metal roof profiles.

An Englert standing seam roof metal roof is the critical platform and centerpiece of the "solar sandwich". The roof supports the thin film laminates and a second energy system below it. The roof's ULTRA-Cool coatings meet Energy Star® and LEED™ requirements for reflectivity and emissivity, reflecting heat away from the building, cutting urban smog and extending the life expectancy of the roof due to less expansion and contraction. Englert standing seam metal roofs will last at least twice as long as other roofing materials, providing an ideal, long lasting platform for any solar energy system.

The third layer is a Solar Thermal System installed under the standing seam roof that absorbs energy into a concealed collection system and transfers it to provide energy for the building's heat and hot water. The system also automatically cools the roof making the BIPV more efficient.

3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape is a family of single coated, pressure sensitive adhesive tapes designed for difficult sealing applications. The backing on this tape is an ionomer film that is very tough yet flexible and abrasion resistant. The very soft and thick acrylic adhesive has excellent sealing properties and good outdoor durability. This single coated tape is designed to seal over an existing joint, seam, or penetration. The adhesive is designed to adhere well to the ionomer film so that overlapping tape joints can be made while maintaining a strong seal. 3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape - instant sealing that rolls on fast and looks good.
