Mitrex Solar Facades
Mitrex solar integrated 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. Our clean energy contributes to a net-zero carbon future.
The Microgrid and Mitrex powered building will help humanity lower our dependency on the centralized grid, especially in times of disaster. Everything is getting more efficient and decentralized. Having depended on grid-connected buildings is a thing of the past.
Global warming is getting closer to the tipping point, and more and more natural disasters are happening. Having a building ready for hurricanes and winds of up to Hundreds of kilometers per hour (ASTM E1886) that is Fire tested (NFPA 285/S 134 ) and generating electricity is not an option. It’s a necessity.
With the evolution in EV cars and battery storage and all car manufacturers moving to all-electric vehicles, the building community, from the initial concept of architects to final completion, are looking for a viable, scalable solution to accommodate all the extra power requirements for new and Retrofit projects.
At Mitrex, we thought about all of this and more when we were designing our solar facade. Cost-effective, Fast install, aesthetically pleasing commercially available superior solar facade from a reputable cladding company with decades of experience in the field.

Mitrex technology is suitable for new builds and renovations of any kind. The limitless applications of Mitrex products include sports centers and shopping malls, health and institutional buildings, logistic, Subdivisions, Storge facilities, transportation facilities, agricultural and industrial buildings, and even data centers. This technology is also applicable to deep retrofits and recladding projects. The sky is the limit to implementing Mitrex facade into building applications; the facade is just the beginning.
Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities are fully automated and equipped with cutting-edge technology machinery. Our high-quality products are engineered for safety and durability. We quickly fabricate and deliver panels that meet specific design and aesthetic requirements.
Mitrex is looking into a future in that cars and buildings are electric, a logical and sustainable ecosystem. Digging fossil fuels from the depth of earth in other continents and burning them to CO and Co2 to run cars and warm-up and run buildings are neither logical nor sustainable.
We can all contribute to the fight against global warming and reverse what we have done to nature while having a superior material on our buildings that last for generations to come. No compromise!

Solar Integrated Energy
The adoption of solar panels as BIPV(Building-integrated photovoltaics) or BAPV(Building-applied photovoltaics) has struggled with poor design and limited choices. As mentioned, a significant advantage of Mitrex BIPV and BAPV panels is that they are entirely customizable to achieve the look of any surface material, pattern, texture, or image desired, including granite, porcelain, brick, wood, or customized graphics.
We achieved this through an innovative surface treatment that fuses the pattern to solar glass, creating a durable, fade-resistant surface that is self-cleaning for maintenance-free operation. And because the panels are frameless, in that they are mounted and wired through the back of the panel, they look exactly like traditional edge-to-edge composite cladding panels.
Solar Integrated Energy
Another major limitation of most solar panels is that they are restricted to a standard panel size because of design, supply chain, or manufacturing constraints. Limitations in panel size hamper the ability of architects to design buildings with complete creative freedom. Mitrex solar cladding panels overcome this problem because they can vary both in size and shape, adapting to the needs of architects as required. Mitrex can manufacture solar cladding in many different sizes, including multiple panels with minute differences, based on architectural design needs. Our custom-designed manufacturing line creates a high-quality edge that ensures that each panel is flush with the next upon installation, resulting in a beautifully flat surface made of imperceptible photovoltaics.
To simulate materials with different textures, we can use a textured glass facing. Depending on the type selected, the efficiency will be affected. However, certain options have enhanced efficiency without compromising on aesthetics. Specifically, solar glass features improved solar energy efficiency in comparison to highly textured glass. With textured glass, more light is diffused or reflected, meaning the panel is less efficient. However, the texture can help give the facing a more natural look and feel. The facing glass options include low iron, matte solar glass, pyramid solar glass, wood glass, rain glass, and satinlite glass. Although the efficiency is affected, electricity will still be generated, and beautiful aesthetics will increase the likelihood of adoption.
Mitrex BIPV uses the power of the sun to produce clean electricity. Our systems can be integrated into any building design while meeting all aesthetic needs. These products are backed by an aluminum honeycomb sandwiched between layers of solid aluminum sheets, making it both lightweight and extremely strong. Mitrex cladding panels are an energy-efficient solution for both existing and new facades. These panels also provide thermal resistance and exterior noise control to a building while ensuring durability and safety.
From design and building perspectives, Mitrex BIPV systems have limitless applications. These panels transform typical, single-purpose building materials into multi-purpose cladding that acts as a building envelope while also generating power.

Mitrex solar cladding panels are designed to compete favourably with non-solar cladding solutions—namely ACM, Precast Concrete, and other types of cladding panels.
Mitrex Solar electricity generating facade is superior to ACM panels in several areas, including quality ( No oil canning issue ), High-end low iron vs. thin Aluminum, strength ( aluminum Honeycomb technology ), Lightweight, and design customization made in North America. Compared to Precast Concrete Panels, Mitrex solar electricity generating panels are much lighter, easier to install, and do not need the building to be reinforced to receive the added weight of Precast Concrete Panels. In addition, Mitrex panels are fade-resistant and practically maintenance-free.
Even after decades, the Mitrex facade will look the same as day one. Mitrex solar cladding is the right choice for any building, whether a new build or retrofit.
