Active Roof® - The Technology

Active Roof Technologies® (patented and patent pending) systems are the latest, most economical Solar Energy Collection System available today. Where ordinary roofs just waste the sun's energy, an Active Roof System® actually harvests the sun's thermal energy and puts it to good use. Unlike solar energy collection "panels" that are added to an existing roof, an Active Roof® is the actual solar heat collection system. An Active Roof® is unique in its ability to transfer free solar heat into the living space when wanted, while it keeps it out during the summer months - and it does this automatically. It truly is the most modern, efficient, economical and earth-friendly roofing system available anywhere.

How it's Made

An Active Roof System is made of an engineered metal panel roofing system that is coated with our proprietary Solanar finishes and integrated with a patented and patent-pending Air Containment Chamber and a sophisticated yet simple Energy Management Control System.

How it Works

The Active Roof® uses the large surface area of your roof to maximize collection of solar heat energy striking the roof surface. Exclusive Solanar finishes conduct that energy into the Active Roof® Air Containment Chamber where an Electronic Energy Management Control System circulates the heated air where needed. In the winter, this free energy is used to heat the air to increase indoor comfort. In the summer, the Active Roof System insulates and reflects the sun's heat from the building, which reduces energy demand on the cooling system and saves you money.

Better for the Environment

Not only better - Active Roof® is the best choice for protecting our environment:

  • Made of recycled materials, it is an environmentally superior choice to asphalt composition shingles, which are made from petroleum products. It is also designed to last as long as the structure on which it is installed, eliminating water leaks and the cycle of expensive, messy roof replacement and the environmental impact of that routine on landfills.
  • The sophisticated Thermal Collection System and insulating properties of an Active Roof® also helps reduce stress on our earth by reducing fossil fuels usage year round. By supplementing conventional heating systems during heating season, the demand for such fuels is dramatically reduced. In warmer weather, an Active Roof® reduces heat transfer from the roof into a home or building, thus reducing the loads on the air conditioning System. This reduced demand for electricity equates to a reduction in your electric bill as well as fewer greenhouse gas emissions. Ultimately, the Active Roof® may even eliminate the need for air conditioning in some locations.
  • Active Roof® installations reduce the fossil fuel usage and carbon footprint of every home or building on which they are installed. No other roof material can boast such a statement. If environmental responsibility is your first priority, then Active Roof® has to be your first choice.

Summertime Action

An Active Roof System incorporates a super-efficient insulation and reflection system. Much like a thermos bottle keeps the coffee inside hot without burning your hands, the insulated Active Roof System controls absorbed heat in a specially engineered Air Containment Chamber. This chamber thermally decouples the roof from the main structure. In the summer time, it reduces energy demand for the building by dramatically reducing cooling loads. The Active Roof System is the only roof you can buy that is both a fully functioning solar energy system and a state-of-the art roofing system.

The roof that pays
for itself.
