The flexibility and robustness of BIPV’s lightweight Flextron technology allows the Metrotile iPanel Roof system to be embedded and pre-bonded in the factory setting. No tricky and costly transportation of heavy glass modules, extra structural support requirements or a technically demanding on-site install required.
While the aesthetically stunning iPanel system is undemanding in the setup phase, it also provides superior energy-generating performance compared to traditional glass modules due to BIPVco’s Flextron technology.
RETROFIT WITH METROTILE ROOF SYSTEMS
Combined with a retrofit Solar Panel system from BIPVco, your Metrotile roof will generate energy for many years to come, and the BIPVco Flextron panel’s lightweight design keeps the overall weight of your roof down. The retrofit system can be fitted to the majority of Metrotile Lightweight Roofing profiles with the low weight/high strength retrofit bracket system co-designed by Metrotile and BIPVco.
