No more 'Ugly' Solar Panels!
Our new Crest PV Solar Tiles are engineered to fit quickly and easily with your roof tiles, giving an almost seamless, attractive finish to your completed roof with the benefits of an instant clean efficient energy supply.
The solar tiles fit seamlessly with the Crest Planum concrete flat tiles and the superb Crest S9 clay tiles. They fit in perfectly with the rooflines so the solar tiles blend very well with the roof tiles and appear virtually invisible.
The solar tiles are made from high-quality materials which have been specially selected and tested for this product. They are designed to have a lifespan of at least 25 years. The roof tiles themselves come with a 30-year guarantee.
The solar tiles have a high efficiency. 50 solar tiles generate up to 4000 kWh of electricity per year, that is as much as 15 standard solar panels of 1 x 1.7 metres. The sample roof surface for this comparison is the same in both scenarios, 25m².
Simple and quick assembly makes the Crest PV solar tiles ideal for new construction and renovation projects.
Value of your home
Solar energy does add value to your home. The beautiful aesthetics of our solar tiles increase this further. A nice thought if you come to sell your home!
The solar tiles can be supplied in different widths. The Standard width is 1500mm, but we can also provide a 600mm variant, which allows for a roofscape to optimise its energy potential.
