Mitrex BIPV cladding generates clean, sustainable power. Using patented photovoltaic technology, the exterior of a building or structure can be transformed into a vertical micro-power plant with this clean energy contributing to a net-zero carbon future.
With Mitrex, architects and designers have complete control over the look and feel of the building. The limitless pattern and color options can be customized to seamlessly design needs without compromising the design vision and aesthetics.
The company's business model makes it possible for everybody to embrace BIPV technology and allows them to price their products competitively as an alternative to traditional cladding materials. Building owners also have the opportunity to earn revenue from the energy generated by the solar products.
Mitrex technology is suitable for new builds of any kind. This technology is also applicable to deep retrofits and recladding projects. The limitless applications of Mitrex products include sports centers and shopping malls, health and institutional buildings, logistic and transportation facilities, agricultural and industrial buildings, and even data centers.
Mitrex's BIPV cladding systems are quick and easy to install. They provide full installation services through certified partners, which include insulation, panel mounting, electrical connections, caulking, and finishing of the entire facade.

Seamless Solar Technology
New solar technology must balance three conditions: it must look good, be cost-effective, and installed swiftly. At Mitrex, they have developed Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) technology that meets all three challenging requirements. Mitrex's solar solutions transform walls and balcony railings into solar panels, extending a building’s energy-generating potential from the rooftops down to the vertical walls. Both the cladding and railings look good while generating clean, green power and in this way, allows architects, facade designers, building owners, and investors the opportunity to design-in and profit from solar technology without compromising their design vision.
Solar Panel Recycling Processes
Mitrex uses two types of solar technology: silicon and thin-film photovoltaics. These types can both be recycled through different industrial processes. Currently, silicon-based panels are more common, so the impact of recycling these panels is drastic, though the value of recycling thin-film-based cells is also important as their use becomes more common.
