More solar roofs in Germany
Several Rubberfuse “solar roofs” have now been
installed in Germany. The first job, a show case,
was a fully adhered system with FB membrane,
but actually most of the installations use the
mechanically attached roofing concept.
Biosol TF (Thin Film) Membrane is the selected
name for the panel made of thin film photovoltaic
modules laminated to a TPO/FPA membrane.
This panel combines the reliability of a PPbased
TPO sheet with the newest generation of
the thin film photovoltaic technology. It has been
developed together with Biohaus, a company
with 20 years of experience in the integration of
amorphous modules. Biohaus is now part of
Centrosolar AG, a recognised specialist for
demanding PV integrated concepts.
A recent reference is the roof covering the Baden
Import warehouse, located in Scheessel. This
8.000 m2 roof includes 220 ea TF membranes and
is designed to generate a total of 59,84 kWp. The
works (actually a renovation) have been carried
out by Frank Bolzenius, the first German applicator
who has been awarded the Rubberfuse
Authorised Applicator status. The “non-solar”
portion uses Sintofoil ST membrane, mechanically
secured to the substrate.
