SolarGaps are much stronger than you think

The effectiveness of solar panels in the process of creating SolarGaps has become the most important point for us. As the amount of space for placing solar elements is limited to the size of the slats, these photovoltaic elements should be very productive. That’s why we chose SunPower solar panels with ETFE (fluorine-based plastic) coating with 22% efficiency and a lifespan of 20 years.

ETFE is used in the aviation and aerospace industry, it withstands high voltage and toxic conditions.

The outer shell of SolarGaps is made out of very strong and durable aluminium. The blinds were tested with air gun, which proves its ability to protect your windows from poor weather conditions like storms or hail.

Due to its resistance to ultraviolet light, the system can withstand exposure to high temperatures for a long period. The operating range is from -20 ° C to 60 ° C (20% humidity) and from -10 ° C to 40 ° C (80% humidity).

But if suddenly during bad weather dents are formed on your panels – do not rush to call for maintenance. Under the influence of heat, the coating returns its primary appearance, just wait for sunny weather.

When asked about cleaning do not be afraid to wipe the blinds from dust or dirt. The good thing about SolarGaps solar blinds is that you can always reach your solar panels when needed. You can use a piece of cloth and some plain water or use a mild detergent if necessary.
