Protan Solar Roofs

Protan Solar Roof is a concept that paves the way for photovoltaic or thermal panels to be installed on roofs covered with Protan membrane.

Ready for onroof energy sources

The right membrane type and quality are selected on the basis of whether the panels are photovoltaic or thermal. The panels can be integrated on the roof or free standing.

Normally the membrane is fastened mechanically when a photovoltaic (PV) or thermal panel array is going to be put on the roof. Protan SE membrane reinforced with polyester is therefore used for these purposes.


The right colour for the job

PV panels work most efficiently when they are kept cool. Light coloured surfaces usually reflect sunlight better than dark colours. Our white Protan Cool Roof and light grey Protan SE membranes are therefore primarily used when there are plans to install PV panels on the roof. Protan Cool Roof has some of the best solar reflectance values on the market for this type of product and makes an optimum contribution to a Protan Solar Roof system with PV panels.

Thermal solar panels convert solar energy into heat which is used to heat water. This type of solar panel works more efficiently the hotter it is. It is therefore an advantage to have dark surfaces that absorb as much of the heat from the sun as possible. For this purpose we recommend our black or dark grey Protan SE membrane.

Protan Cool Roof

Protan Cool Roof is a roof system where a white membrane is used when laying exposed roofing with a documented high Solar Reflectance Index. It also has high thermal emissions, which is a measurement of how efficiently heat is radiated as thermal radiation to the surroundings.

Protan SE Membrane

Whether it is flat or curved, SE membrane manufactured by Protan can be fitted everywhere. The softened PVC membrane adapts to climates with ease.
