Since the launch of ProZip over 20 years ago, the B ra d c la d G ro u p has always looked to the future, developing new ideas to keep the ProZip product at the forefront of the roofing industry.
Early solar panel systems, based on crystalline technology, have been fitted to ProZip panels after the roof system was installed, using a structural framework. This is often costly, slow to install and results in a solar panel system which imposes itself on the building.
Now, through a partnership with BIPVCo in the UK, Bradclad are able to offer ProZip with an integrated PV thin film solar panel system.
Manufactured in the UK and using the very latest CIGS technology,the PV films are laminated to the metal roof panel and incorporated into the roof during construction.
Unlike more conventional crystalline solar panels, the ProZip Flextron requires no framework or bracket system. The solar panels are not fitted to the roof – they are part of the roof. With efficiency levels that match their crystalline rivals, the thin film Flextron option offers the building designer a solar panel system that is sympathetic to his choice of roof.
Inverters are hidden, fixed to the underside of the laminate, and remove the need for any visible cables or wires on the finished roof.

The standard ProZip panel is produced in either a colour coated steel or aluminium. Projects in Europe can be completed using Prisma coated steel from Tata, available with a coating warranty of up to 25 years. For more hostile conditions, such as those found in the Gulf, ProZip Flextron is supplied in PVDF coated aluminium, available in any RAL colour.
