ZigZagSolar

Solar facade for energy efficient buildings

ZigZagSolar is an energy harvesting Building-Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) system unlimited in every aspect of design & engineering. Zigzagsolar is the next generation energy-harvesting architectural facade with all the pros of both a PV-system and an architectural facade. Harvest energy in a future-proof and aesthetically pleasing design maintaining maximum freedom of design for architects. By a combination of pv-panels facing the sun and tilted decorative panels the electric yield will be increased and the solar panels will be invisibly integrated into the building.

Pro/con

Unlimited creative architectural design options
Outstanding support
Principled success
Innovative architectural facades
Reducing fossil energy consumption
Optimized orientation
Always start by installing solar applications on your roof
ZigZagSolar is a complete facade system therefore it should only be specified as a facade system. If there is no need for a facade, then ZigZagSolar is more expensive than a roof top system or a solar park

Specification

Areas of Application New and refurbishment, commercial and residential buildings
Flexibility Maximum freedom of choice in the application of decorative facade panels such as Aluminium Composite Panels, Cosentino, Wood, Trespa, Rockpanel and transparent panels such as Perspex or Glass.
Maintenance Implementation of an aluminium profile at the front-edge of the pv-panels to offer protection by inaccuracies during maintenance, inspection of cleaning.
Material 22-cell standard produced solar panels | Upgradeble to HIT solar panels with electric yield by 30%
Modular design ZigZagSolar is build up from single full-operational casettes | ZigZagSolar casettes will be fixed onto an aluminium mounting-systems such as BWM or ALLFACE.
Operating conditions Horizontal and vertical aluminium profiles are used to create an optimal flattened system.
Power 126% of actual yield in kWh per m2 PV panel.
