If you’re a builder looking to boost your green building credentials, read on. A new trend in roofing that couples HPM’s standing seam panels with specialty clamps makes it easy to install photovoltaic (PV) systems without compromising the integrity of the roof. . . or, to put it more simply, solar power without the pukas.
Whether PV panels are planned as part of the original design or a future addition, your best bet for the no-puka roof is HPM’s Shur-Lock roofing. These snap seam panels, coated with premium finish Durapon 70 and available in 14 colors, allow you to span any size roof without the need for through screws. (Just ask the engineers at HECO, who chose Shur-Lock for a 22,000 sq.ft. PV installation at Kahe on O`ahu.)More
