BIPV Curtain Wall

The BISEM™ BIPV Curtain Wall Systems generate electricity; they are water tight, and sustainable. We designed them to provide simple Zero Energy Building solutions at very affordable price.

Our engineers were tasked to develop a system that performed to German standards for energy efficiency but used American building standards for constructability. The result is an electrified curtain wall that integrates photovoltaic panels to facilitate a Net Zero Energy Envelope.

The BISEM-Wall is a flexible aluminum chassis that will also seamlessly incorporate electrochromic glass and super high R-Value glass. The system can be easily installed by any qualified glazier in the United States. Clear instructions for structural, waterproof, and electrical installation are part of the "Multi-Trade Solution" offered with this super green product.

If you are looking for a LEED® Platinum building, you have come to the right place!

Accessories
BIPV Curtain Wall
  • 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
