Sarnafil Inc., Canton, Mass., and Solar Integrated Technologies (SIT), announce the completion of a North American supply agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Sarnafil will supply SIT with its high quality thermoplastic roofing membrane on an exclusive basis for the North American market. In addition, the two companies will cooperate in marketing the SIT SR2001 Solar Electric Roofing System.
"We are very pleased to extend our relationship with SIT," says Brian Whelan, president and CEO of Sarnafil Inc. "They are at the forefront of integrated solar roof design, a technology that has been attracting a lot of attention throughout North America. We are excited to supply the waterproofing membrane for SR2001 and to participate in bringing the product to the building owner and construction markets."
SIT's SR2001 System consists of 12 flexible photovoltaic modules, factory laminated by SIT to the Sarnafil EnergySmart Roof® membrane, forming a 10-foot by 40-foot flexible solar roof panel. During roof installation, the panels are hot-welded onto the new Sarnafil EnergySmart Roof and wired to the building' electrical system. The result is a solar-electrical roofing system that protects the building's interior from the elements while generating power for the building's electricity needs.
"The agreement with Sarnafil is an important strategic milestone for SIT," says Ed Stevenson, CEO of Solar Integrated Technologies. "It extends our supply relationship with the worldwide leader in thermoplastic roofing membranes. Based on our evaluation of roofing materials, the Sarnafil vinyl roofing membrane was the best material to meet our stringent performance requirements for reflectivity and fire resistance and has the longest track record of proven performance."
