SolarFrameWorks to Supply BIPV Solar Roofing Components to Johns Manville

SolarFrameWorks, a leading photovoltaic solutions company, has signed an agreement with Johns Manville, a premier global manufacturer of energy-efficient building products, to supply its proprietary BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaic) CoolPly solar roofing products. JM E3 Company, a Johns Manville’s business entity, will market these solar roofing products.

Johns Manville’s vice president and general manager of the Roofing Systems business, Fred Stephan, said that the CoolPly roofing product from SolarFrameWorks enables crystalline solar panels to be installed on to a roofing system without any penetration of the membrane thus avoiding potential damage to the roofing system. Stephan further said the company is pleased to collaborate with SolarFrameWorks to integrate its lightweight roofing components with Johns Manville’s roofing membrane systems.

BIPV CoolPly with crystalline photovoltaic modules provides maximum kilowatt power density when installed as large arrays. Other features such as air cooling chamber and tilt facility enables the photovoltaic panels to kept cooler thus maximizing the energy output of the panels. CoolPly is available in polyvinyl chloride and thermoplastic polyolefin to suit these roofing membranes.

Tim Swales, vice president of research and development for Johns Manville, said that by combining the expertise of SolarFrameWorks in photovoltaics and Johns Manville’s experience in commercial roofing, a new range of solar power generating roofing products will be offered to the market.
