INTEGRATED SOLAR CELLS – KERABIT AURINKOKATTO
The Finnish subsidiary Kerabit has, among other things, delivered a solar cell solution of 32 kWp to the Technical Museum in Helsinki. The museum had specific requirements as the building is a building of cultural heritage restricting both the bearing capacity as well as appearance. The solution is Kerabit Aurinkokatto / solar panels. These are so-called CIGS panels are made of thin film for installation on ceilings that should not be exposed to greater weight. The solar panels are integrated in the roof’s water- proofing layer and thus form part of the protection at the same time as they meet the aesthetic requirements for an unchanged roof. The system, which weighs only about 7 kg / m2, is significantly lighter compared to more traditional panel systems and is ideal as a solar panel solution for existing buildings.
MAINTAINED WATERPROOFING LAYER WITHOUT DRILLING HOLES – KERABIT SOLAR
The Kerabit Solar roof bracket system is designed for mounting traditional solar panels without the brackets having to be fastened in the bitumen layer, leaving the roof intact. The brackets are also designed to distribute the weight of the solar panels over a larger area.
