Metektron is the world’s first solar power module where the solar cells are directly fused to the building fabric in the factory to form the unified power roof / wall component.
Available in two standard sizes of 120 and 240 nominal Watts. It is also available in non-standard sizes between 43 and 240 nominal Watts with a maximum roof panel length of 6M. Please contact BIPVco if your requirement is non-standard.
This integration of the cells onto the metal substrates reduces the amount of material used as the metal acts as both carrier and barrier for the module. The avoidance of the secondary step of mounting the module saves on labour / time.
Metektron has been jointly developed with reputable building substrate and component suppliers and thoroughly tested by third party or durability by accelerated aging in environmental chambers. The roof and the PV warranties will be maintained by this systems approach.
When the modules have to be longer than 6M or when the functionality cannot be integrated at BIPVCo factory an equivalent Metektron module can be built by laminating a stand-alone flexible module to an approved metal roof product.
METEKTRON+ has all the electrical characteristics of Metktron but with a different build process and some additional material since the steel base lo longer forms the barrier function for the electrical module.
