Based on proven crystalline technology, the fourth generation of Monier InDaX photovoltaic integrated modules fulfils two functions: clean, solar electricity generation and a secure roof covering.
Low overall system height with modules mounted in attractive black coated aluminium framing.
Safe, flexible and quick assembly
Modules can be installed from left to right or right to left and they can be installed in either rows or columns. This flexibility, along with a minimum number of parts and the low system weight, means the installation can be carried out simply and quickly. Modules are installed from top to bottom ensuring maximum safety during installation. Separate drainage channels overcome any unevenness in the roof structure.
Wide pitch range capability
The InDaX system can be installed on roofs with pitches between 15° and 65°.
Maximum energy yield
Modules are arranged in arrays and mounted in specially designed framing that optimises the ventilation at the rear of each module and thereby maximises the power output. Holes in the eaves profile allows condensate to drain away.
Weathertight and high wind uplift resistance
InDaX modules fulfill the same protective functions as roof tiles, i.e. weathertightness and resistance to wind uplift. Modules can withstand loads up to 550 kg/m2. High quality flashings from the roof window industry are used with the weathertightness of the system guaranteed for 15 years.
25 years linear performance guarantee
Monier guarantees that during the first year of operation the module power output will be at least 96.5% of the rated power output. From year two to year twenty-five, the manufacturer guarantees that the module power output will reduce by no more than 0.6% per year of the rated power output such that by the end of the twenty fifth year of operation, the modules will still provide a minimum power output of 82% compared to the rated power output.
The Redland Training & Resource Centre provides practical courses, designed to give merchant and contractor staff understanding of pitched roofing and confidence in dealing with Redland products. Click here for information on our Photovoltaics in Pitched Roofs training day.
To qualify for a Feed-in-Tariff, both the PV system and the installer must be MCS certified. Redland's InDaX system has undergone rigorous performance testing for dynamic wind loading, deluge and driving rain conditions and spread of fire resistance and has now been awarded Certificate No: MCS BBA 0149 in addition to MCS BBA 0019.
Church’s crowning glory sees BMI Redland reach the heights
Craftsmanship and attention to detail received their just reward when the re-roofing of Shettleston New Parish Church in Glasgow’s East End won the Roof Tiling category in the National Federation of Roofing Contractors’ UK Roofing Awards.
A force for good in roofing
As part of an initiative to attract former service personnel into the construction industry, Coleg Cambria, Deeside, North East Wales; is hosting a Forces in Construction Insight Day on October 10th.
BMI pitches up with a new flat roof training facility
Following the completion of a new BMI Icopal flat roofing training area, and the refurbishment of the existing BMI Redland pitched training facility, BMI’s National Training Centre is now able to offer contractors, merchants and students an extensive range of both pitched and flat roof courses at the one location. This makes BMI the only UK roofing manufacturer able to offer training in both disciplines and at the one site.
