Santa Clara, CA January 19, 2016 – Upland Corporation, a Manufactures’ Representative Firm that provides industry-leading building material solutions to the commercial construction industries and MiaSolé have entered into a Sales Agreement. Upland Corporation will sell MiaSolé FLEX modules New Mexico and El Paso, TX territories. Since 1984, Upland Corporation has helped architects, building owners and contractors by providing quality building solutions to these valued construction partners.
Upland Corporation will engage in the sales and marketing of MiaSolé FLEX modules, the most efficient thin-film lightweight flexible modules on the market today with an efficiency rating of +16%. MiaSolé FLEX modules bond directly to the roof surface with a simple peel-and-stick adhesive. The low-profile FLEX module provides superior wind resistance and a seismic advantage providing huge benefits over traditional rack-and-panel solar systems.
The FLEX-02 Series module is available in two formats. The FLEX-02W module is 39.3 inches x 102.3 inches and is rated at 360-watts, and designed for low-slope commercial single-ply roof systems. The FLEX-02N module is 14.6 inches x 102.3 inches and is rated at 120-watts, and designed specifically for standing-seam metal roofs. The FLEX-02 Series module is IEC 61646 & IEC 61730 and UL 1703 certified.
The FLEX-02 module provides Upland Corporation customers other significant benefits. The low weight of the module (<0.7 lb/sq ft) allows installation on roofs that cannot support the weight of traditional glass solar panels. Because the FLEX-02 panels adhere directly to the roof surface, there are no penetrations, eliminating the worry of leakage and damage to valuable contents within the building. The FLEX-02 also is aesthetically pleasing, blending into both metal and TPO roofs and preserving the original look of the roof.
