Plug and play approach to solar panel systems
We were approached by the design company for a major building supplies company to help develop and manufacture their vision for a fully ‘roof integrated’ solar panel system.
Not only roof integrated but that it should be a plug and play approach that could be installed by roofers rather than electricians and fitted in place of conventional roof tiles.
Working with the design team and material supplier a special DMC composite material was developed for the revolutionary two part assemblies. Prototype compression tools were laid down and units produced which were then built onto a series of test installations.
A further programme of refinement was followed by testing and approvals. Finally resulting in production tooling being laid down and the product being launched to ‘critical acclaim’ at InterBuild, the largest exhibition on the UK construction industries calendar.
