Tata Steel roofs are PV ready

Tata Steel roofs are PV ready

Tata Steel's Confidex® Guarantee for Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra®, their durable roof and wall cladding pre-finished steel product, has now been extended to include cover for areas that are situated under photovoltaic (PV) frame modules.

The move means the whole building envelope is guaranteed to perform for the same duration of up to 40 years, giving building owners who wish to install a PV array the assurance that it will not have a detrimental effect on the performance of the pre-finished steel underneath.

“With the trend for decreasing photovoltaic costs, and local authorities in the UK incorporating them as part of their supplementary planning guidance, they are becoming much more attractive to install on the roof of a building,” said Peter Barker, Manager New Product Development, Tata Steel.

Peter added; “If the building owner is considering retrofitting photovoltaics in the future, specifying Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® also ensures that the roof is PV ready, allowing modules to be installed at any point throughout the Confidex® Guarantee Period"
