Designed for use in-roof solar photovoltaic (PV) panel systems, Protect A1 Solar from Glidevale Protect is a heavy-duty roofing underlay that not only supports the installation of in-roof solar PV panels but also contributes to maintaining the integrity of the roofing structure.

Weighing 145gsm, Protect A1 Solar is a type HR impermeable roofing underlay that is suitable for unrestricted use in wind uplift zones 1-5 at the maximum batten gauge of 345mm according to BS 5534 standards.

It reduces the risk of condensation forming on the underside of the solar panels, which could otherwise lead to roof timbers rotting. The product’s impermeability and high resistance to water vapour transfer means there is no need for a ventilated counter batten space above the membrane. This feature not only simplifies the installation process but also cuts both labour time and material costs.

While Protect A1 Solar is a highlight in Glidevale Protect’s product line, the company also offers a variety of other pitched roofing membranes, including vapour permeable, type LR underlays that can be used alongside in-roof solar PV panels.
