SunEwat is a range of laminated safety glass products featuring embedded photovoltaic cells. By merging glass the construction material with photovoltaic cells, SunEwat effectively combines design with electricity generation.
SunEwat photovoltaic modules meet all aesthetic and functional requirements for seamless integration into buildings. They can be used instead of conventional materials and comply with the relevant standards for both building products and photovoltaic products.
Since SunEwat modules are custom made they can be tailored specifically to each project. This gives architects a great many options for combining electricity generation with facades, canopies, sunshades, balustrades, louvres, spandrels and so on.
The assembly comprises two sheets of toughened glass, with the external sheet ideally being made of extra-clear glass in order to maximise electricity production. The inner sheet can be clear, extra-clear, coloured, screen-printed or any other type of glass. SunEwat can be assembled in double glazing (Thermobel) to provide the required level of thermal insulation.
Deploying SunEwat photovoltaic modules improves the buildings energy performance and enhances its environmental image.
