WHAT MAKES GENCLAD PRODUCTS DIFFERENT?

Commercial production of a unique through colour PV module developed by EPFL /CSEM in Switzerland.

 

Development of a PV façade and roof covering module that is part of the fabric of the building with all the structural, mechanical and physical properties of conventional cladding systems but with the ability to generate solar electricity.

 

Colour and material integration with the fabric of the building.

 

Direct cost comparison with existing cladding and roofing solutions.

WHAT IS THE CLADDING SYSTEM?

The GenClad team is built on the vast experience of professionals who have combined their expertise in the areas of façade mounting and construction with PV system design and installation.

 

The system is time proven, tried and tested aluminium rail and channel arrangement combined with a unique module frame and attachment system.

 

The result is a quick to erect, robust coloured façade that has a pedigree derived from EDM Spanwall’s extensive portfolio of cladding constructions across the world.

WHAT OPPORTUNITIES DOES THE GENCLAD SYSTEM OPEN UP FOR ARCHITECTS ?

Truly integrated PV as a primary building material

True through colour that will last
