Gulf Coast Architects Attend Englert Seminars on Integrating Standing Seam with Solar Technology

More than 30 Gulf Coast architects, most of them from Mississippi, attended two days of seminars on integrated metal roofing and solar technology Feb. 9 and 10 in Biloxi. Topic of the seminar was “The Solar Sandwich,” an explanation of how LEED-compliant cool metal roofing is the pivotal component for Perth Amboy, N.J.-based Englert Inc.’s SunNet BIPV solar photovoltaic laminates and the Dawn Solar Thermal system.


The sessions featured examples of how the systems work together on existing residential and commercial structures and how the three can earn more than 20 LEED credits and save between 20 to 80% on a building’s energy costs.

Englert sponsored the seminars. Sessions were led by Englert staff including Butch Dubecky, southeast sales director, Mark Halbert, sales representative for Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana, Bill Dooley, architectural representative for Florida and the Caribbean Islands and John Silvia, southeast architectural sales representative.


Also speaking at the seminar was Frank Hogan of S-5 who addressed the use of metal roofing clips used expressly for attaching crystalline photovoltaic panels and other rooftop components to standing seam. Charities Barnes of Englert coordinated the two-day program.
