Mitrex eFacade is a testament to the harmony of form and function. The elegance of architectural cladding meets the power of BIPVs, fusing aesthetic design, solar power, and unparalleled performance.

Solar Facade

The building envelope, reinvented

Too good to be true? Not anymore.

Our range of architectural solar products, including the innovative eFacade, is crafted to seamlessly replace your building's facade while harnessing the power of the sun. 

With a robust aluminum honeycomb core and a layer of high-efficiency solar cells, each panel is a powerhouse of clean energy. But the magic lies in the customizable facing– a canvas where any pattern or color comes to life, marrying the beauty of architectural solar facades with the practicality of BIPV.
