Johns Manville (JM) recently announced that it has reached an agreement with SolarFrameWorks for SolarFrameWorks to supply its proprietary building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) CoolPly™ solar roofing components to JM. Johns Manville will market these products through its JM E3 Co. business entity.

“SolarFrameWorks’ CoolPly product provides a solution that requires no penetration of a roofing membrane to attach crystalline solar panels to a roofing system,” said Fred Stephan, vice president and general manager of the Roofing Systems business for Johns Manville. “Avoiding roof penetrations maintains the integrity of the roof system, which reduces the risk of leaks. This partnership further strengthens JM’s leadership in sustainable roofing. We are excited to partner with SolarFrameWorks to incorporate their lightweight, flexible and durable components into our single-ply, built-up and modified bitumen roofing membrane systems.”

SolarFrameWorks’ BIPV CoolPly allows maximum kilowatt power density with crystalline photovoltaic (PV) modules when installed as large arrays and around HVAC units and vents while maintaining high wind ratings. In addition, the tilt and proprietary air cooling chamber maximize the per-kilowatt-hour energy output of the solar panels by keeping PV panels cooler to obtain the best possible efficiency.
