Light Solar GB Panel

Panels made of innovative glass components (called “LightSolarGB”) provided with a special thermal belt for highly insulating power and integrated with solar cells and LEDs for luminescent, self-sufficient smart facades, roofs and indoor applications.

The colour of the LED can be varied to obtain different light conditions and effects. The photovoltaic technology maintains constant conversion efficiency even in diffused light conditions allowing for high performance in different installation configurations (surface angle and orientation).

DSCs are also a bifacial photovoltaic technology that exploits both internal and external light sources and their efficiency is not affected by high temperatures.

In addition, thank to the Li-Fi (Light-Fidelity) technology, the products can be used for remote building control and monitoring, or for add purposes.

The Light Solar GB Panels are dry assembled and prestressed and can be used for the construction of multifunctional and luminescent building envelopes and indoor applications.

SBskin dry assembly system VS traditional mortar-based assembly system

With the innovative SBskin assembly systems, only 30 minutes are needed to assemble a 2 sqm panel, as opposed to what happens with mortar-based solutions which depend on curing time. This results in significant time and money savings without compromising the quality of the result. In the case of the Light products, in particular, the dry assembly also guarantees a correct and precise connection of the LED devices, through customized weatherproof connections.

With the traditional mortar-based assembly systems, the quality of the construction of the building element (façade, roof, internal partition…) is strictly related to the specific, local labor skills. On the contrary, the dry prefabricated SBskin panels allows for a perfect realization of translucid building elements with only 2 mm joints between the glass blocks.

SBskin’s panels are also prestressed to resist earthquakes and wind forces, allowing for high-rise building installations.

Besides the enhanced insulation power, the use of plastic profiles to assemble the panels allows for an easy maintenance and dismantlement, recyclability of the subcomponents and a high product customizability.

Advantages of the dry assembly system

  • Ideal for curtain-wall application;
  • Time for construction: 30 min for 2 sqm;
  • Joints: 2 mm;
  • Results independent of labor skill;
  • High mechanical features to resist earthquakes and wind force;
