McElroy Metal and MiaSole partnering to offer Lightweight Solar Metal roofing solution

Miasole Hi-Tech, a subsidiary of Hong Kong listed Hanergy Thin Film Power Group, is pleased to announce our new advanced CIGS based FLEX "N" series PV modules will be on display with McElroy Metals at this year's METALCON Exhibition event in Denver Colorado on October 01-03, 2014.

Miasole Hi-Tech, a subsidiary of Hong Kong listed Hanergy Thin Film Power Group, is pleased to announce our new advanced CIGS based FLEX "N" series PV modules will be on display with McElroy Metals at this year's METALCON Exhibition event in Denver Colorado on October 01-03, 2014.


The Miasole FLEX series module is specifically designed for applications over a wide range of steep sloped architectural standing seam metal roof systems as well as certain low slope corrugated metal roof profiles. The FLEX modules bond directly to the metal roof panel. No racks, clamps, brackets or assembly are needed. This greatly reduces material, time and labor. The FLEX modules come factory applied to the metal panels or can be installed in the field.

According to Anil Vijayendran, Head of Product Management at Miasole, "McElroy Metal with their decades of manufacturing experience, large national manufacturing capacity, wide range of metal roof profiles and years of experience with solar installations is an ideal partner for Miasole".

Ken Gieseke, vice president of marketing for McElroy Metal, explained his company's natural attraction to this new flexible thin film solar technology.

"Metal roofing is a perfect medium for green building and solar energy installations for many reasons. Metal roofing with its decades long service life provides an ideal building surface to compliment the 25-to-30 year expected energy output of the Miasole FLEX modules. Add this to the fact metal roofing is completely recyclable material and can then be reclaimed again at the end of its service life, makes metal roofing and solar the ultimate green roof system" said Gieseke.

Gieseke went on to explain that McElroy's customer base in the metal roofing industry has an increased interest in solar power as solar roofs have become mainstream and are a regular part of today's building envelope.

McElroy Metal roofing customers understand that building owners are requesting new renewable energy solutions and adding solar to metal roofs becomes a new opportunity for increasing profits.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
