MBCI Photovoltaic Systems
MBCI produces two photovoltaic
systems. The first is a rigid glass-based polycrystalline silicon
module installed on standing seam metal roofs using a
non-penetrating clamp that mechanically attaches to the seam. The
second system is flexible thin film typically adhered to the metal
roof panel in a factory, which allows the photovoltaic array to be
installed with the roof panels.
2. CPI Daylighting
UniQuad Structural Translucent Panel System
CPI Daylighting's UniQuad structural
translucent panel system is an assembly of two independent
translucent insulated panels joined by a mechanically interlocking
structural connection that eliminates the need for adhesives. The
UniQuad system can span up to 12 feet without compromising panel
deflection, is available with up to 0.22 U-value and 50 percent
light transmission, and has Removable Skin Technology that allows
the exterior panel to be replaced as needed.

on trapezoidal sheet metal roofs. The Tau+'s fasteners and
Clickstone attachment technology increase installation speed and
4. AmeriLux International
LEXAPANEL Standing Seam Systems
AmeriLux International's LEXAPANEL Standing Seam System is
manufactured with LEXAN polycarbonate, which has high light
transmittance and thermal resistance. The LEXAPANEL system has a
high load capacity and can be used in glazing applications
including canopies, skylights and overhangs.
5. Conserval Systems Inc.
SolarWall air heating and ventilation systems use the sun's
energy to pre-heat ventilation air for buildings and
crop-and-process drying applications. Depending on the size and
application, SolarWall systems can displace 20 to 50 percent of
heating fuel consumption and can also act as a rainscreen.
6. Covertech Fabricating Inc.
rFoil Reflective Insulation
Covertech's rFoil reflective insulation is designed to control
heat gain and loss, and prevent interior condensation on all types
of metal buildings. The insulation is made of polyethylene bubbles
bonded to and sandwiched between a radiant barrier metalized foil
and a white polyethylene sheet.
7. Huber Engineered Woods
Huber Engineered Woods' ZIP System radiant barrier incorporates
ZIP System technology with radiant heat protection. ZIP System
radiant barrier roof panels are available in 1/2-, 5/8- and
7/16-inch thicknesses and block up to 97 percent of radiant heat
transfer, which can lower attic temperatures by as much as 30
degrees. The all-in-one sheathing makes installation more efficient
and the roof panels eliminate the need for felt paper.
8. Major Industries Inc.
LightBasic Quick Ship Skylights
Major Industries Inc.'s LightBasic Quick Ship Skylights are
pre-engineered, feature a self-flashing design, and are ship
assembled in a number of standard sizes from 4 by 4 feet to 5 by 20
feet. The translucent, single-slope skylights blend glare-free
light, economy and thermal performance in a single package.
9. Big Ass Fan Co.

10. Englert Inc.
E-375 Commercial/Residential Soffit Panel
Englert's E-375 Commercial/Residential Soffit Panel in solid or
vented styles features a 3/8-inch Deep V-Groove, unobtrusive seams
with a positive lock and concealed fasteners. E-375
Commercial/Residential Soffit Panels provide a net-free ventilation
area of 10.12 square inches per square foot.
11. Solatube International Inc.
Solatube International Inc.'s new SkyVault with a 29-inch
diameter opening features an amplifier that reorients daylight
downward to increase optical efficiency. The tubular daylighting
device eases glare, reduces light loss at ceiling level and focuses
light downward in high-bay applications for greater light
availability at task level. Airports, convention centers, lobbies,
warehouses, manufacturing facilities, retail centers and other
large spaces with high ceilings are ideal for SkyVaults, which
maximizes output, minimizing impact on the building envelope and
reduces installation costs. Higher daytime luminance and more space
between units results in fewer roof penetrations. SkyVaults have
insulated, sealed, curb-mounted roof assemblies that integrate into
the vapor barrier and minimize heat loss and gain through the
12. ATAS International Inc.
InSpire Wall by ATAS is a metal wall panel that acts as an
auxiliary component to a heating system. It heats fresh air and
utilizes free solar energy. The InSpire wall panel, a transpired
solar collector, is mounted a few inches from the building's outer
wall. The precision perforations in the wall panels allow outside
air to travel through the panel's face. Solar-heated air at the
surface of the panel is drawn through the perforations where it
rises between the two walls and enters the building's central
ventilation system or supply fan.
13. CertainTeed Corp.
MemBrain Vapor Retarder
CertainTeed's MemBrain vapor retarder and air barrier breathes
and allows excess moisture to escape from wall cavities. The vapor
retarder and air barrier is a polyamide film that changes
permeability from less than one perm at low humidity, such as
during winter, to greater than 20 perms at high relative humidity.
It is used in place of traditional polyethylene vapor retarders
with un-faced fiberglass insulation to provide an insulation system
for areas with seasonal changes in temperature and humidity.
14. MacroAir Technologies Inc.
MacroAir's AirElite fan, available in 8- to 20-foot diameters,
has a 1/2-horsepower motor, onboard electronics and integrated
control system. AirElite delivers high-power industrial performance
in a quiet, low-profile package.
15. Mitsubishi Electric U.S. Inc.
Variable Refrigerant Flow Zoning R2-Series and
Mitsubishi Electric enhanced its Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF)
zoning R2-Series and Y-Series cooling and heating systems with a
smaller footprint, improved heating startup and other efficiencies.
The enhanced models operate quietly and simultaneously heat and
cool zones. VRF zoning systems are outdoor units suitable for
16. Butler Manufacturing
SunLite Strip Daylighting System
Butler Manufacturing teamed with Sunoptics to deliver the
SunLite Strip daylighting system, a patented, self-curbing system
developed for applications to the Butler MR-24 standing seam metal
roof system. The 24-inch-wide system fits on top of the seams of
the MR-24 panels, using the seams for structural support to remove
it from water flow. The dome construction with prismatic embossing
captures more light at low sun angles than other lenses. Thousands
of mirror-like elements along a SunLite Strip lens magnify the
effect of light transmission into a building and maintain 100
percent diffusion, eliminating hot spots, glare and ultraviolet
damage. The SunLite Strip frame has a self-curbing design that
avoids the risk of leaks around flashings of conventional

19. Carlisle Metal Products
CM150 SL System Roofing
A sloped shingle roof tied into a flat singly-ply roof on the
Mount Bethel Fire Hall in Mount Bethel, Pa., was replaced by a CM
150 Snap Lock system metal roof. The 16-inch-wide panels with
striations were used to address potential oil canning in the
design, completed by Rohrbach Associates PC, Iowa City, Iowa.
Carlisle Metal Products, Carlisle, Pa., supplied the metal- and
single-ply roof areas. Alan Kunsman Roofing & Siding Inc.,
Freemansburg, Pa., also installed CMP FW1 Soffit Panels and CMP
Fascia and Gutter.
