All in the panel details

The PV tiles measure 992x1640mm. They can be installed in a landscape or portrait orientation and are easily combined using patented push-fit technology to create solar arrays of any shape and size and the industry leading 5mm panel spacing and hidden fixings give a high-end, sleek aesthetic.

Two styles are available, providing a variety of looks and electrical outputs:

  • Monocrystalline-black - deep black colour, black frame, outputs of either 300Wp.
  • Polycrystalline-black - dark colour, slightly blue, black frame, output of 270Wp
Panel performance
Marley SolarTile® is the only roof-integrated solar system accredited with the highest resistance to spread of flame and fire penetration in all European fire safety tests, achieving BRoof T1, T2, T3 and T4.

These solar PV tiles also provide excellent weather-tightness and wind resistance, without the need for extra roof batten support, adhesive flashing rolls or fireproofing materials. The certified wind resistance for Marley SolarTile® is more than four times higher than competitor products and suitable for even the most exposed locations.

Marley SolarTile® is compatible with the entire range of Marley roof coverings, including clay and concrete tiles and cedar shingles and shakes, and it is suitable for installation on low-pitch roofs.

Monocrystalline Panel

Monocrystalline solar cells are cut from a block of silicon that has been grown as a single crystal. The result is a more powerful and efficient cell with a deep black colour, which is further enhanced with a black backing sheet and black frame. This allows for the best possible aesthetics within the roofing space.

It is available in 300Wp panel, with an efficiency of 19.2%.

Polycrystalline Panel

Polycrystalline-black PV cells are manufactured from a cast block of silicon which is made up of many smaller crystals. The surface is then treated to increase uniformity and darken the colour. These cells have a slightly blue appearance, and the dark aesthetic is completed with a black backing sheet and black frame.

Our Polycrystalline offering comes as a 270WP panel, with an efficiency of 17.3%.
