Infinity - the edge-to-edge solar roof

The Infinity solar roof is an almost seamless glass roof with exceptional power generation capacity.  Solar panels are mounted within a structural framing system and the roof is them finished with high quality welded aluminium flashings that are powder coated for colour matching.  The result is a sleek glass and aluminium roof covering from ridge to gutter and side to side, with huge solar power output and a 25 year warranty.


Complete solar roof from edge to edge, fully waterproof

Roof windows can be included

Hundreds of installations across the UK, going back to 1995

Can be produced to the exact dimensions of the roof including triangular solar panels for hips & valleys

The system offsets the cost of the standard roof covering e.g. tiles or slates

Unique and flexible design concept

Infinity is unique, as GB-Sol can manufacture custom size laminates also which allows for complete utilisation of the roof area.

The waterproof mounting system framework provides backup drainage for management of any water ingress and condensation.

Once a roof has been membraned & battened, the frame is fitted directly to the battens.  When the framework is in place solar PV panels are added and the capping strips are riveted in place, retaining the panels by compressing the gaskets to form a perfect seal.

Finally the surrounding flashings are installed.  These are high quality welded aluminium and powder coated to your specified RAL colour.  They will have been designed exactly for the array specified. 

BRE tested

Working with BRE as partners in the EUR-Active Roofer project, Infinity was used to develop the tests which inject dense tropical rain in the horizontal airstream from a wind tunnel in front of the roof, while simultaneously imposing a vacuum behind.  This simulates the very worst case conditions and shows that Infinity is completely watertight.

Infinity Case Studies

Infinity - FAQs

The system has a total thickness of 80mm above the battens.

The roof needs to have at least a 10 degree pitch to ensure the drainage system is sufficient in removing any condensation from behind the panels.  If less than this, then you will need a single ply, steel sheet or similarly waterproof roof surface for us to fix over.  

The maximum roof pitch for standard installations is 45 degrees.  Steeper pitches require additional considerations depending on the size and location of the roof, so please contact us to discuss your project in further detail.

20kg per square metre, so much lighter than most clay tiles & slates

GB-Sol has been at the forefront of solar panel and mounting system design for nearly 30 years.

We are proactive in reviewing our designs and ensure a culture of continuous improvement in methods, materials and testing.  Global solar and construction accreditation bodies are used to test and certify our solar panels and mounting systems.

In independent fire tests, GB-Sol’s Infinity and Integrated solar roofs achieved EXT.S.AA, the highest possible rating under BS 476-3: 2004 - Roof Fire Test.  Testing also confirmed passes for the CEN/TS1187:2012 Test4.  AA (national class) is equivalent to Broof(t4) (European class), the highest class and the only classification allowed to span full roofs and the compartmentation of buildings.
