Latest News Mon, Jun 29, 2020 3:34 PM

In response to increasing focus on sustainable solutions to support the UK target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, Marley has launched its Marley SolarTile® range. The integrated photovoltaics (PV) system that offers easy installation, sleek design, energy cost savings, proven performance, and a 15 -year guarantee.

Choice and options

The Marley SolarTile® range comprises of three sleek, low-profile PV16 solar panels for roof integration. Each is available in a range of power output and styles.The range covers the Monocrystalline – black 320Wp, the Monocrystalline – black 300Wp and the Polycrystalline – black 270Wp.

Specification, aesthetics, and performance

As the Marley SolarTile® range integrates perfectly with the full Marley roof system and all tile types, specifiers can also benefit from the reassurance of Marley’s 15-year guarantee when the panels are installed as part of its complete roof system.

Marley SolarTile® offers a very low profile and unobstructive design providing the level of kerb appeal and enhanced aesthetics demanded by housebuilders and homeowners.

The range also provides exceptional wind resistance performance with double fixing to battens and trusses, ensuring outstanding resistance against wind uplift and an industry-leading rated wind loading for any current roof integrated PV system.

Finally, Marley SolarTile® is the only roof integrated PV system accredited with the highest resistance to spread of flame and fire penetration across all current European fire tests.

Easy installation for new builds and retrofit projects

Roof integrated solar panels, like Marley SolarTile®, can be installed easily in any new roof application. The solar panels and flashings can be fitted to the roof first and then the roof covering can be fixed around them.

Integrated solar panels are also highly applicable for retrofit projects. Simply removing a patch of tiles and installing the solar panels leaves spare, perfectly matched tiles available for any future roof repairs. As well as being easy and simple to fit, the installation time for Marley SolarTile® is quick. The patented connection of simply pushing the panels together to create a weather-tight and secure fixing means installation can be less than one hour per kilowatt-peak.

Stuart Nicholson for Marley, comments: “According to the Energy Savings Trust, a typical home could save between 1.3 and 1.6 tonnes of carbon per year and make a saving of up to £260 on the annual electricity bill by installing solar panels.With legislation changes expected to follow the current Future Homes Standard consultation, both specification and household demand for PV solutions is expected to increase.”

“Backed by the Marley 15-year system guarantee, our new SolarTile® range achieves exceptional fire performance, wind resistance and weather tightness and is the perfect answer for any solar roof vision.”
