Positive facade architectural solution to better integrate building projects into their environment

March 2023

Ultraçade Power is a composite aluminum ventilated facade system to solarize facades and make photovoltaics accessible. This system provides an architectural solution for integrating solar panels vertically. The ventilated facade system improves the energy coefficients of buildings through the air gap that is created in the construction system. The energy coefficient of the building is improved by about 30% by this air space which creates a chimney effect that will limit the impact of heat in summer and cold in winter. It is an architectural solution because the solar panel is framed. There are 13 shapes in total that allow you to adjust to all project lengths, and all project heights, with only standard pieces. It's like a game box, the architect can use the pieces, adapt them to his project, and have, with 13 different shapes, a completely unique project. The product is Made in France, with varied mounting brackets and a 25-year warranty. Also, it complies with CSTB 3194 specifications.

Looking For Visibility, Credibility

The environmental benefits

  • Up to 90% self-consumption of the energy produced by the facade
  • Up to 30% improvement in the energy coefficients of the building by the system of implementation of ventilated facade of our solution
  • Aesthetic architectural solution allowing architects and project leaders to have a solution that easily integrates into the environment of their projects
  • Today only 10% of old buildings can receive photovoltaics on the roof, while more than 60% can receive them on the facade

  • Makes it possible to give access to industrialists, shops, public buildings to photovoltaic energy for their electrical self-consumption and to save money while participating in the energy transition

The Financial benefits

  • The additional cost linked to the "positive" part of the product is only 20%. this allows a return on investment close to 5 years
  • No additional cost linked to a reinforcement of the roof structure
