Photovoltaic bent tile: beauty and energy without compromise

Industrie Cotto Possagno combines the functionality of clay bent tiles with modern photovoltaic technology, maintaining the appearance of the bent tile practically unaltered. The result is a product with extraordinary features:

  • the typical thermal flywheel properties of earthenware, and those of the waterproofing system, remain unchanged;
  • fixing rods and/or tanks are not required for laying; this avoids all problems caused by infiltration and thermal bridges;
  • the installed by-pass diode prevents any problems caused by moving or unexpected shade (trees, chimneys, aerials, leaves etc.);
  • the ventilation channel between the PV module and the bent tile makes the system less sensitive to high summer temperatures (lower temperatures imply greater yield);
  • in the case of a power drop due to an irregular module, the module automatically disconnects to prevent the need for replacement. If you wish to replace it, however, the snap-on multi-contact fixtures make the operation quick and easy without the need for specialist technicians;
  • finally, the system offers the advantage of to be installed on an existing roof, replacing only the square metres required without incurring additional costs for perimeter waterproofing.
