SOLAR FLAT ROOFS
A roof was once seen only as a means of protecting a building from the elements. But now through the introduction of insulation to increase thermal efficiency, followed by the ability to generate renewable energy from the roof space, it has become a valuable resource for building owners.
By using solar photovoltaic (PV) panels on your building you can actually generate a yearly income that could pay off the initial cost of completing the roof work and installation, and in subsequent years will give you a significant return on your investment.
The use of solar white as the top coat to our exposed Decothane systems provides increased solar reflectivity for the roof. This results in lower roof surface temperatures, which can have many benefits such as reduced internal heat gain in summer and can lead to lower air conditioning costs, reduction of the Urban Heat Island Effect (UHIE) and improved performance of photovoltaic panels.
All the roofing systems we offer can accommodate the addition of crystalline panels secured on a frame that may be weighed down with ballast or fixed to the deck.
