The German company Creaton has developed a new type of photovoltaic tiles that solve the problems that conventional solar panels have when it comes to adapting to certain types of roofs. The new PV-Autarq roof tiles equipped with photovoltaic cells open the door to a revolution in domestic solar energy production.
The process of installing solar panels on the roofs of houses is not always a simple task. Moreover, in certain cases it becomes an impossible job to undertake. The urban regulation itself can put certain impediments. And what is even more relevant. In some types of roof it is not feasible to install solar panels. This is where photovoltaic tiles come into the picture.
the german company Creaton has developed new roof tiles with photovoltaic cells who are called to solve all these problems. Photovoltaic roof tiles that open the door to a revolution in domestic solar energy production. These are the new PV-Autarq roof tiles. They can be installed even in the most complex conditions. Let’s go into detail.
Creaton presents the new PV-Autarq photovoltaic roof tiles
This new photovoltaic roof tile is a flat tile model whose surface is covered by a series of solar cells designed by the German specialist Autarq. They feature 3.2-millimeter toughened safety glass, which the company says can withstand the impact of weather elements such as hail.
The output power reaches 10 Wp with a density of 120 watts per square meter. It should also be noted that they can operate over a very wide temperature range. From -40 ºC to 85 ºC. They are also capable of withstanding mechanical stress levels of up to 5,400 pascals. All these features, taken together, have been key to achieving IEC 61215 certification and safety according to IEC 61730.
For the peace of mind of your customers, Creaton offers a guarantee of up to 25 years for the components of your new photovoltaic roof tiles. And by the way, they are available in various colors.
Installation of Creaton PV-Autarq photovoltaic roof tiles
Creaton also stresses that his new PV-Autarq photovoltaic roof tiles can be installed in combination with conventional roof tiles. This allows a high level of flexibility when carrying out the installation and placing a number of photovoltaic tiles according to our needs. The tiles are individually connected to each other and all connection cables as well as plug contacts are hidden inside. In addition to being aesthetic, it offers additional protection for these components.
