Integrated Solar Technology
Kingman Group is thrilled to unveil an exclusive partnership with Mitrex, aimed at providing Solar cladding solutions to the Australian Market.
Mitrex has ingeniously developed methods that seamlessly incorporate solar panels into building facades, resulting in visually pleasing and fully integrated solutions. This revolutionary approach, known as building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) systems, extends a unique opportunity to architects, engineers, building proprietors, and investors. It empowers them to harness the benefits of solar energy without compromising on the aesthetic aspects.
Mitrex’s range of offerings, including Solar Facade’s, Solar Railing’s, Noise Barriers, Rainscreens, and Solar Glass cater to diverse aesthetic preferences, building efficiency needs, and safety requisites. Unlike traditional rooftop solar panels, which pose design limitations and are constrained by available roof space in urban settings, Mitrex rejects such confines.
The amount of sunlight that hits the earth in one hour provides more power than the entire world consumes in one year.
Photovoltaic cells are required to convert this source of unlimited, clean energy. However, the adoption of solar technology has traditionally been limited by size, aesthetic options, and land area needed. Mitrex offers solar technology that is aesthetically pleasing and can be integrated onto every available surface, allowing clean energy to be generated on a mass scale.
The BIPV solar technology is entirely customizable to achieve the look of any surface material, transparency, pattern, or texture, and a patented coating process maximizes energy generation and ensures the panels last for decades. We use monocrystalline or thin-film solar technology depending on the application and aesthetic desired. All Mitrex modules are safety-tested and code compliant to guarantee safe and durable solar building materials.
At Mitrex, we prioritize the high efficiency of the solar modules while maintaining design flexibility. From facades to glass, roof, or siding, Mitrex provides various solar building material options that make adoption easy.
Take Advantage of Your Vertical Surfaces
Opaque BIPV Technology
Mitrex opaque BIPV technology utilizes a customizable tempered glass facing to mask the solar cells’ appearance while ensuring the panels have a high energy performance.
The opaque BIPV Solar technology is patterned with fade-resistant and UV-stable colours, meaning the panel’s designs will not fade like traditionally UV-sensitive materials such as wood. The coating materials are characterized by high solar transmittance, minimal absorption, and increased durability.
The tempered glass is also just as strong as traditional facade materials such as aluminum and concrete and resists being marred, scratched, and pitted by the elements.
Mitrex offers a range of opaque BIPV products, including Solar Facades, Solar Glass, Solar Railing, Solar Roof, and Solar Siding.
Transparent BIPV Technology
Mitrex transparent BIPV technology allows for invisible energy generation while maximizing light transmittance through the tempered solar glass.
Using thin-film solar technology, Mitrex can supply Solar Glass that seamlessly powers the structure in which it is incorporated. Mitrex offers a range of transparent BIPV products, including Solar Glass, Solar Railing, and Solar Greenhouse.
