Redland is launching InDax: a cost-effective solution for contractors and specifiers looking for an integrated PV system that can be used both for new build and retrofit contracts.
InDax is supplied as a package complete with fixings and flashing in individual modules. The minimal number of parts and low weight makes for quick and easy installation.
InDax modules have been thoroughly tested to ensure they provide the same levels of weather-tightness and resistance to wind uplift a roof tiles while the technology used for the PV laminate delivers one of the most efficient power outputs on the market. The system meet al the product performance requirements of the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).
Demand for this system is expected to come from residential developers needing to meet local planning requirements for renewable energy generation and from public sector developers building to Code Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. Either way a key selling point for the product is its aesthetic appeal: the low overall height and the black coated aluminium framing make for an unobtrusive addition to the roof.
InDax is also an ideal retrofit solution as it can simply be installed in place of existing roof tile courses. It avoids many of the installation problems associated with on-top PV systems and is also up to 70% lighter.
InDax is available through merchant distribution from July 2013.
