Product summary
The A-75 ATM PV module uses the same cells and materials as the standard Atersa A-75 PV module (same production process and quality guarantees), with a special frame and measurements that have been specially adapted for its integration in ceramic ventilated façades. The tedlar is blue for better visual integration, incorporating rapid connection cables to facilitate assembly within the ventilated façade. Special pyramidal front glass is used, which results in greater protection and increases the radiation captured by the vertically mounted solar cells by at least 10%.

Info on building integration of PV product
Supporting structure has been developed by Mecanofas (Karrat S7 model). It consists of metallic profiles that avoid direct contact of the PV modules and ceramic paneling to the inner wall. This provides several benefits: hidden anchorage, better mounting efficiency, easy access, anti-drop system. This final aspect is specially important: in case of damage of any PV module, it remains fixed to the metallic horizontal profiles an can be removed safely
