BIPV Sunscreen

The BISEM™ BIPV Sunscreen is an economical, pre-engineered sun shade that can be installed with the BISEM™ BIPV curtain wall or with any manufacturer's pressure plate curtain wall.

Our photovoltaic sunscreens give you an energy generating solution for your Zero Energy Building. They are a versatile part of our electric envelope, and provide a great sustainable product if you are building a LEED® Platinum project.

  • The BIPV Sunscreen can also be installed as a stand-alone photovoltaic sunscreen onto any wall substrate.
  • Our Engineer's were tasked to use standard curtain wall installation practices and develop a system that could be easily installed by any qualified glazier in the United States.
  • Clear instructions for mechanical and electrical installation are included with this versatile product.
  • The system will also incorporate electrochromic glass for variable SHGC.

  • BISEM Factory Wiring

BISEM's parallel wiring enables each panel to output a constant voltage under all operating conditions, allowing all panels to become independent contributors to the array's power bus. It's a new level of freedom for designers. Multiple PV technologies can run side-by-side. Panels on the same wire can face in different directions.

  • Online Electrical Monitoring

Examples: Monitoring Kiosk Example #1 and Monitoring Kiosk Example #2
These two installations are examples of the Monitoring that comes as part of the system in the complete solution.

  • Inverters

We prefer SMA inverters for our installations
