  3. 3. At Onyx Solar we develop building integrated photovoltaicmaterials which are used for the replacement of conventionalconstruction materials from different parts of the building’s exteriorsuch as roofs, skylights, windows or façades.At Onyx Solar we are committed to the study and start-up ofenergy efficient measures and sustainable technologies whichwill allow us to retrofit existing buildings and to design new eco-friendly projects. Our philosophy consists of developing uniqueand elegant solutions for architectural integration, by combiningboth thermal optimization and photovoltaic generation.Our Building Integrated Photovoltaics –BIPV- systems can turn theroof, the windows or the curtain wall of a building into a complete,multifunctional, high-performing, solar-energy power plant. OnyxSolar counts on the most extensive and innovative approach todesign and implement BIPV applications.PHOTOVOLTAICSBUILDINGINTEGRATED"Solar architecture is not about fashion,itisaboutsurvival"Sir Norman Foster

  17. 17. Double glazed photovoltaic insulating units can be incorporatedinto the project providing better thermal insulation properties.Normally they consist of an external photovoltaic laminated glassof 0.24, 0.32, 0.40, 0.47, 0.59, 0.75 in (6, 8, 10, 12, 15 or 19 mm)thick, an air chamber of 16 mm for a greater thermal insulationperformance, and an inner pane of 6 mm thick glass.Additionally, Argon filling can be used with the chamber for abetter thermal performance.DOUBLE GLAZED INSULATING UNITSTRIPLE GLAZED INSULATING UNITSIn order to achieve even better thermal insulation, triple glazedinsulating units could be considered as a possible solution.Generally they consist of an additional inner pane of 0.24 in (6mm) thick glass which is incorporated into the double glazed unit.Argon filling can be used with the chamber for a better thermalperformance in the same way that the previous case.PHOTOVOLTAIC

  19. 19. For projects where laminated glass is required, we consider variousoptions in order to meet the customer’s specifications. Laminatedglass is composed of several panes of glass, bonded together byan interlayer (EVA or PVB normally).The thickness of the panes uses to be a 0.12, 0.24, 0.40, 0.47, 0.75in (3, 6, 10, 12 or 19 mm) glass which can be toughened and heatsoaked. Additionally, the interlayer material can be adapted inorder to improve the degree of insulation and to provide a widerange of colors, being both necessary in order to achieve a greateracoustic insulation and to meet the aesthetic requirements of theproject.Laminated safety glass is comprehensibly tested for wind forces,seismic activity or impact resistance, in order to comply with all thefunctional, quality and safety standards required. Also, other testsare carried out in order to comply with additional regulations suchas the UL 1703 certification or the International ElectrotechnicalCommission –IEC-.One of the main applications of our laminated glass consists ofits usage in ventilated photovoltaic façades, roofs and curtainwalls. For an easy and quick installation, we have developed acomplete set of complementary products and services, whichalso allow its installation in any type of project.PHOTOVOLTAICLAMINATEDSAFETYGLASS
