Romag release new PV roof tile

Romag has brought to market the new Intecto integrated PV tile, designed to fit alongside residential and commercial roof tiles.

The system has been developed to enable architects, housebuilders and roofing contractors to provide an integrated PV solution without compromising power production.

Installed directly onto wood roofing battens, the lightweight tiles conform to higher Code for Sustainable Homes and BREEAM ratings.

Kevin Webster, Romag’s technical director, said: “There has been considerable recent debate about the aesthetics of solar panels and how colour matching may compromise the effectiveness of solar PV products.

“By successfully blending into the roofscape and maintaining power output efficiencies, Intecto successfully overcomes both these challenges and provides an effective solution to the need to maintain the integrity of a building in its local surroundings.”
