Photovoltaic Skylights

PHOTOVOLTAIC SKYLIGHTS

The basic function of skylights placed in glazing of roofs of buildings is lighting the interior. Their use in the construction of photovoltaic glass enables the use of skylights to produce electricity for the installation.

ML System offers standard and structural photovoltaic skylights based on single or double chamber insulated glass in which the outer pane is replaced with a photovoltaic module.

Skylights equipped with fillings in the form of photovoltaic modules provide:

  • adequate lighting of rooms (translucency is adjusted to customer requirements)
  • high thermal insulation (modules constitute the outer pane of thermo-insulated glass sets)
  • optimal energy production
  • equipped with the NoFrost function ensure self-snow removal of roof surfaces
  • permanent access of natural light to the rooms (NoFrost function prevents snow from accumulating on the skylight)

ML System photovoltaic modules are fillings compatible with the majority of aluminum and glass systems intended for the production of skylights from such manufacturers as:

  • Aluron,
  • Aluprof,
  • Yawal,
  • Ponzio,
  • Reynaers,
  • Sapa,
  • Wicona,
  • Schuco,
  • Aliplast,
  • Rehau,
  • Alusystem
  • i inne.


The dimensions of the modules (fillings) are adapted to the architecture of the building - the requirements of the designer and investor. There is a possibility of making modules with irregular shapes.

Advantages of photovoltaic skylights

Free electricity

No need for snow removal, protection against weather conditions

Generating savings

Generation of more electricity in winter

Stable construction, modern design, simple maintenance custom application

By using of the ultralight glass, the implementation of the structures on the roofs is possible because of their low carrying capacity

Choice of transparency level
