Monier SOLARtile

Smart, sleek, solar: Monier SOLARtiles are solar system specifically designed to seamlessly integrate with Monier flat profile concrete tiles to provide sustainable energy.

Solar panels on roofs can reduce power costs, but typical solar arrays are heavy, unsightly, and can only be fitted on certain areas of a roof and require a crane to install. To solve this problem, Monier has worked to deliver SOLARtiles their own modular and sleek tile-integrated solar panels, which blend in with the rest of the roof. 

Lightweight, but strong, Monier SOLARtiles are built to take a beating from the elements. They are hail-proof and strong enough to be walked on like most other roof tiles.

Unlike traditional bolt-on systems, the impact on natural wind flow around the roof is minimised, which means no extra strain or debris building up around the system. Also, there is no need to cut, grind or drill through the existing roof during installation.
