Semi-transparent photovoltaic glass for rooflights, canopies and balustrade.
Our ClearShade PV glass is a semi-transparent energy generating glass that can be integrated into a variety of solutions.
Solar PV, or photovoltaics, have been around for a number of years and with ongoing research and advancements in technology, innovative solutions beyond the standard and familiar roof panels are now available.
Precision Glass offer a range of semi-transparent glass with built in energy generating, photovoltaic, capabilities.
A shading solution with energy generating capabilities.
With the new Approved Document O focusing on overheating for new build projects ClearShade PV now offers a shading solution that can integrate with your renewable technology to enhance the microgeneration capabilities of your home.
Available in standard sizes, or custom made to suit your project, ClearShade PV panels can be provided as an alternative to standard glass in a veranda or rooflight.
Requiring a standard click and play electrical connection on only one edge, ClearShade PV can also be used in external balustrades to provide privacy whilst also generating electricity.
ClearShade PV is manufactured using a specialist printed interlayer enabling a range of shading/transparency requirements to be met. The deeper the shading, the greater energy produced.
Using different technology to traditional solar PV panels, ClearShade PV works in both direct and non-direct sunlight. Energy can be generated from both sides of the panel, and can even generate electricity on overcast days.
Walk-on energy generating solar PV rooflights.
ClearShadeStep integrates photovoltaic technology into a walk-on glass panel. This technology allows roof terraces to generate electricity for the building without compromising space or usability. An energy generating roof terrace is fully accessible and designed to take standard loadings for floors, ensuring your roof terrace can be used for entertaining on those warm summer evenings.
