Introducing Solarvolt™: The Advanced Building-Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) Solar Glass System by Vitro Architectural Glass
In today’s world, the demand for eco-friendly and sustainable solutions is greater than ever. That’s why Vitro Architectural Glass has introduced Solarvolt™, an innovative building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) solar glass system. This advanced technology is designed to perform the functions of classic glass facades, vision glazing, and spandrel glass while generating solar energy and reducing building energy consumption.
Fully Integrated. Built to Perform.
The Solarvolt™ glass system is engineered to be fully integrated and built to perform. With its advanced solar energy generating capabilities, it provides a practical solution to both new construction and existing building projects. The Solarvolt™ glass system can be integrated into most standard glass building systems, such as post-bolt systems, and tailored to comply with all design requirements for glass facades.
Customized Solutions for Unique Design and Construction Needs
Vitro Architectural Glass offers customized glass-glass solar glass systems that provide a variety of options for design and construction. The Solarvolt™ system is ideal for integration in both existing buildings and new construction projects and can be adapted to meet unique requirements depending on facade type, facade grid, construction type, building height, and location.
Thermally Insulated Window Glass
The Solarvolt™ glass system is an ideal solution for thermally insulated window glass. In this application, the insulated structure surfaces are fitted with the Solarvolt™ glass system as weather protection. The Solarvolt™ glass system’s advanced insulation properties provide thermal insulation and soundproofing functions with real power.
Glass-glass Solarvolt™ glass systems can be structurally integrated into building envelopes and roof surfaces adjacent to heated rooms. Insulation-glazed solar lites also protect the surface from the weather in addition to providing thermal insulation and soundproofing functions with real power. Systems with triple glazing fulfill the passive house standard.
Solar energy doesn’t have to be just functional – it can also be beautiful. The Solarvolt™ glass system’s back-painted glass can be integrated into BIPV solar systems to showcase a variety of colors. This is ideal for spandrel glass applications and other areas where laminated safety glass is not required.
Large-Scale Facade Projects
For large or complex projects, photovoltaic facades provide buildings with more than just a balanced energy supply by converting sunlight into electric energy. They also illuminate spaces to create the desired lighting. Natural daylight is proven to have mood and productivity benefits; however, anti-glare shading is necessary in some situations. The Solarvolt™ glass system is engineered to meet unique project requirements, no matter how large or complex the project may be.
Solar Energy for a Sustainable Future
The Solarvolt™ glass system by Vitro Architectural Glass is a game-changer in the world of eco-friendly and sustainable solutions. It not only generates solar energy, but it also reduces building energy consumption and protects the building from weather and noise. Its advanced features and flexibility make it a practical solution for any building project, no matter the size or scope. The Solarvolt™ glass system is the future of building design, construction, and sustainability.
