"OUR ONYX SOLAR PANELS ARE PROUDLY POWERING THE DUBAI FRAME"

Onyx Solar is the world’s leading manufacturer of transparent photovoltaic (PV) glass for buildings. Onyx Solar uses PV Glass as a material for building purposes as well as an electricity-generating material, with the aim of capturing the sunlight and turn it into electricity. 

The panes are made of layers of heat-treated safety glass which can provide the same thermal and sound insulation as conventional architectural glass, not to mention the fact that they also let natural light go through in the same way as conventional glass.

Thus the PV glass panes could be installed replacing conventional glass on building facades, curtain walls, atriums, canopies and terrace floors, among other architectural applications.

These glass panes could additionally be installed on a wide variety of existing buildings and facilities, therefore contributing to their enhancement both from an aesthetic and energetic point of view.

PHOTOVOLTAIC PV
Glass generates free and clean electricity thanks to the sun, turning buildings into vertical power generators

MULTIFUNCTIONAL PV
Glass lets natural light go through. It also provides thermal and sound insulation, ensuring great filtering power as 99% of UV harmful radiation and up to 95% of IR radiation can be absorbed.

FINANCIAL BENEFITS
Our PV Glass works as a revenue-accelerator. Enjoy long term energy savings, tax credits and incentives.

AESTHETIC
We can easily adapt our PV glass to the needs of our customers making it possible to choose the shape, color, size, thickness and grade of transparency of the glass therefore facilitating its integration in a wide range of projects and designs.

EASY TO INSTALL
Installing our photovoltaic glass is no different from installing conventional glass.

ONYX SOLAR AMORPHOUS SILICON PHOTOVOLTAIC GLASS

Amorphous silicon photovoltaic glass (PV glass) features a combination of functionality, efficiency and aesthetics. 

This material can be the perfect substitute for conventional architectural glass placed in buildings because it offers the same mechanical properties in addition to the advantages mentioned a few lines below. 

 

PV glass is in compliance with all international safety standards when used in construction for architectural purposes. It also generates free clean energy thanks to the sun (active solar properties). 

PV glass panes physical features such as their shape, color, size, thickness and grade of transparency can be all customized to meet the requirements of the wide range of projects in which they are being used.

ADVANTAGES OF AMORPHOUS SILICON SOLAR PV GLASS
• It produces more power than crystalline silicon glass in overcast weather and high temperatures.
• It offers different visible light transmittance levels, up to 30%.
• It offers flexibility in design since it can be tailored to the architectural needs.

NATURAL ILLUMINATION AND SELECTIVE FILTER

Amorphous silicon glass is the ideal material to be used as it can provide buildings with a lot of natural illumination in their interiors. 

Its filtering properties are also high-lighted because both harmful UV radiation and IR can be absorbed, thus,improving its thermal insulation.

THE LARGEST PV GLASS PANELS MANUFACTURED IN THE WORLD

Our photovoltaic glass panes come both in standard and customized dimensions. Our largest PV glass panes measure 13.5 feet x 6.5 feet.

Onyx CRYSTALLINE SILICON PHOTOVOLTAIC GLASS

Crystalline silicon glass features more power installed per SqFt in comparison to amorphous silicon glass. 

This means that under direct sunlight crystalline silicon glass can yield twice as much energy as amorphous silicon glass. 

This PV glass technology is suitable for those buildings and facilities with good solar orientation which seek maximum energy output. Crystalline silicon PV glass is the most suitable material to be used on canopy and skylight applications, spandrel glass, solid walls and guard-rails. 

PV glass presents the same mechanical properties as conventional architectural glass used in construction for architectural purposes.

ADVANTAGES OF CRYSTALLINE SILICON PV GLASS

• Crystalline silicon glass can be easily customized, especially in terms of shape, even trapezoids can be fabricated without difficulty using this technology.
• Greater nominal power capacity per SqFt (Wp/SqFt).
• Crystalline silicon glass installations take up less area for a given amount of kWp to be reached compared to amorphous silicon glass installations.
• Crystalline Silicon glass’ efficiency can go up to 16%.

100% CUSTOMIZABLE

The company ́s policy is focused on satisfying the different architectural styles worldwide.
