Germany-based module manufacturer Centrosolar AG has developed a new installation option for its thin-film solar module TF Multi Professional. Now, the large-surface module can be installed on roofs covered with trapezoidal sheet metal. Previously, installation of these modules was possible only on plastic foil roofs.
‘Our customers have increasingly been asking for installation options on trapezoidal roofs,’ explains Dr. Josef Wrobel, sales and marketing director of Centrosolar AG. ‘Given the module's size and low weight of only six kilograms per square meter, it is ideal for large industrial rooftops, which are often covered with trapezoidal sheet metal.’
TF Multi Professional can be mounted on trapezoidal roofs in two ways: parallel or perpendicular to the direction of the recesses in the trapezoidal sheet metal, which are known as beads. Centrosolar notes that it supplies all components necessary to install the system.
