The Roof Integrated System was designed by GB-Sol in 1994 and has evolved into the perfect solution for mounting integrated PV panels within a roof surface and to withstand all weather conditions experienced in the UK and beyond. Tested by BRE under hurricane conditions, it is proven to be completely watertight.

- Sits discretely within the surrounding roofing materials - tiles, slates, zinc, steel, etc.
- Internal drainage systems for water ingress & condensation protection
- Installed throughout the UK, first installed in 1994
- Light weight solar roof - lighter than tiles & slates
- Panels can be produced to any required dimensions
- Also suitable for vertical façades
Manufactured in the UK
GB-Sol will size and design your scheme upon receipt of the basic information providing a budgetary quotation
The system offsets the cost of the standard roof covering e.g. tiles or slates, and the time on a bare roof can be significantly quicker than cutting tiles and fitting hooks
GB-Sol's Integrated systems are unique in using solar panel laminates, the structure of the mounting system itself forming the frame-work.
Our ability to manufacture bespoke size laminates also allows for complete utilisation of the roof area.
Each panel is supplied complete with EPDM edge gaskets that complete the sealing of the roof. The mounting system frame-work provides backup drainage for condensation.
Once a roof is at its normal membrane level, a GB-Sol integrated solar roof can be fitted directly to the battens using the standard fixings provided.
When the framework is in place solar PV laminates are added and the capping strips are riveted in place, retaining the panels by compressing the gaskets to form a perfect seal.
Finally the surrounding flashings are installed. These are aluminium with the option to be powder coated to your specified RAL colour. They will have been designed exactly for the array specified.
The GB-Sol design service is free. Once we have some basic details of the installation we will respond with an initial quotation, showing the proposed system size with the total dimensions of the array plus its flashings.
