Integrated Solar Roof. Innovation that’s in keeping with narrowboat aesthetics.
Like all good ideas this is a simple idea. It brings together several established practices and puts them together in a neat way. It saves time and reduces costs.
Sure there are those amongst us who would like to carry forward the steel roof tradition. But please be aware that steel roofs have not been around for very long at all.
Building a narrowboat with the roof off saves time. It means that parts made more efficiently in the workshop can be dropped into place. It’s how other boats have been built for years.
On finishing the fitout the rigid modules are placed over the cabin sides. They overlock each other and the cabin to create a watertight fit and a fixed with bolts and sealant. Cables from the solar panels and lights are then connected.
Integrated Solar Roof. Innovation that reduces costs by speeding up build time.
