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.

OMG Roofing Products - PowerGrip Universal

Eliminate Solar Rack Ballast and Reduce Rooftop Material Handling. PowerGrip™ Universal (PGU) is a commercial roof mount system designed to secure solar racks and other equipment to any type of commercial roofing system. PGU provides a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members and is designed to reduce or eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there's less weight on the roof and less material handling. Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU units include a base ring which is secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck, and a waterproof top plate.
