Tractile is the new alternative in roofing
IN SIMPLE TERMS TRACTILE PROVIDES A 4-IN-1 COMBINATION OF ROOF TILE, ELECTRICITY, HEATED WATER, AND INSULATION IN A VERY ARCHITECTURALLY APPEALING PACKAGE. THIS IS WHY WE CALL IT THE SMARTER ROOF.
Tractile provides an innovative combination of interlocking systems, high performance composite materials, and solar technology. Developed in Australia, the highly awarded Tractile Roofing system can be used on residential and commercial projects and has been designed with a focus on design, performance, energy, and sustainability.
Tractile is superior to traditional roofing products.
SYSTEM AND TECHNOLOGY
Worlds first integrated solar roof tile solution, generating both electricity and heated water from a single unit. Combines photovoltaic solar cells with thermal hot water in a common platform.
Tractile Roof system is made of modern, lightweight composite materials. It uses a hook located on the underside of the tile designed to interlock with the roof battens.
Every now and then a product comes along that revolutionizes an industry. When it comes to roofing that product is Tractile.
The Roof Integrated Photovoltaic and Thermal (RIPV-T) system is an exciting new technology which merges photovoltaic (PV) and solar thermal hot water (STHW) systems, simultaneously providing both electricity and heated water.
Through this combination, the system also achieves significantly increased electrical performance in hot conditions, due to the thermal energy generation cooling the PV cells.
In this way, more energy is generated per unit surface area when compared to separate photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collector’s side-by-side.
Traditional PV systems turn an average of 10 to 20% of the sunlight into electricity. The remainder (80 to 90%) is lost as heat. Also, as PV cells heat up in warm or hot conditions, their performance is reduced.
EXCESS ELECTRICITY PRODUCED BY THE TRACTILE SOLAR SYSTEM AND NOT USED BY THE HOME, CAN BE STORED IN A BATTERY OR SOLD BACK TO THE ENERGY GRID.
A TRACTILE ROOF IS ENGINEERED TO WITHSTAND EXTREME WEATHER CONDITIONS OFFERING LONGEVITY WITH LOW MAINTENANCE.
Responding to the threat of climate change a Tractile roof shields and protects the home and family.
Tractile provides an innovative combination of interlocking systems, high performance composite materials, and solar technology.
In simple terms Tractile provides a 4-in-1 combination of Roof Tile, Insulation, Electricity and Hot Water in a very architecturally appealing package.
