Photovoltaic in-roof mounting system Solrif

The in-roof system by Schweizer combining excellent solar energy yields with functional aesthetics and simple installation has become market leader first in Switzerland and Europe and increasingly worldwide.

Solrif®, the patented photovoltaic in-roof mounting system by Schweizer, turns a frameless standard module into a solar power generating roof tile; thus, replacing traditional clay roof tiling of pitched roofs. Unlike on-roof systems, this roof integrated mounting system is a true alternative to conventional roof covers. More and more leading manufacturers of photovoltaic module are offering their modules with the simple yet proven Solrif frame.
