Our award-winning RIS system has been around for over 20 years. If you have a question, you may find the answer here.
Most roofs are suitable for our roof integrated system. Please get in touch with your architect’s drawings and we’ll be happy to confirm and offer advice if required.
For a new build, please send us an email containing your architect’s drawings (all elevations and a site plan if possible). If it’s an existing building, please provide the roof dimensions and details of any obstructions such as roof lights or vents. If neither of these are possible, please provide the address and we may be able to give a very rough guideline quotation.
The design of the system will depend on the roof shape and dimensions so there isn’t a fixed cost per square metre. Please contact us with details of our project for a personal budgetary quotation.
The roof needs to have at least a 15 degree slope to ensure the drainage system is sufficient in removing any condensation from behind the panels. If less than this, contact us and we can discuss the options. There’s no maximum roof angle as the RIS system can be used vertically as our Facade Integrated System (FIS).
Back in February, GB-Sol provided free PV Slate installation training to pupils from a local youth club. This was for a project they'd designed - a digital bench to provide shelter to the homeless and also facilities to charge mobile phones.
Impressed by such an innovative idea, GB-Sol donated the PV Slates as well as a whole kit including batteries, charge controller and made special double USB charger and a 12 volt adaptor, to supply 24 hour power.
This week, GB-Sol had a special visit from pupils at Hawthorn High School. Working with Newydd Housing Association, they are designing a digital bench at a Pontypridd Church. It will provide a sheltered place for the homeless to sleep, and include USB charging facilities powered by solar.
The students brought along their roof frame and GB-Sol’s PV Product Manager, Lloyd Symonds, taught the school pupils how to install the PV Slates. These were fixed to the South elevation with natural slates on the opposite pitch.
A special charging pack was designed including two USB ports and an LED light. This will be connected to a battery to allow use of the electricity outside of daylight hours.
GB-Sol work on all sorts of unique projects, if you’d like our can help with yours, please get in touch.
