In Flörsheim, near Frankfurt, SUNOVATION has equipped the facade of an industrial company with 112 facade modules of the Sunovation eFORM series. The project-specifically manufactured glass-glass modules with a size of 1200 x 1200 mm have been attached to the facade of the industrial warehouse with an incline of 90°. The modules consist of a satined rear glass and a clear front glass and they are backlight with LEDs. On a module area of 1.44 m², 49 crystalline 5“ solar cells are embedded permanently elastic between to glass plates by means of a special production process. In total, this facade system has a performance of 13.5 kWp. During the day this glass facade is impressive due to its photovoltaic cells, which shows the use of renewable energies. However, the LED lighting, integrated into the solar modules, is the highlight of the construction.
At night the facade is illuminated with bright light and thus impresses with a spectacular distant effect. Due to the use of RGB-LEDs a color change is likewise possible as the lighting in corporate colors or for certain occasions. This type of facade design is particularly interesting for the use in representative buildings. Also existing building can be upgraded with this product easily and get a contemporary, modern optic.
