Product summary
InterSole is a system for integrating solar panels in sloping roofs – easy to mount and watertight. Mounted on your roof using an extremely ingenious design of overlapping plastic sheets and special anchors, the solar panels are equipped to weather storms. The fitter can use the special anchors as a foot support to work safely and quickly. The sheets are made of recycled, low-maintenance 100% chlorine-free plastic. The inexpensive and easy to install InterSole has been awarded the TÜV certificate, which guarantees safety and reliability.
