The essential partner for manufacturers of active facades

Solaxess SA is a Swiss company specializing in the design of materials for the photovoltaic (PV) industry, intended for the realization of architectural projects. Thanks to technology developed by CSEM, and three years of reliability and certification, Solaxess contributes significantly to the aesthetic improvement of photovoltaic panels. Now, they are an integral part of buildings, whether on facades, terraces or roofs.

The company is active in distributing its products to PV panel manufacturers around the world. Our films, 0.1 to 0.5 mm thick, are integrated onto standard PV modules during their manufacturing process. This means it’s possible to obtain a white, grey or other light-coloured PV panel that is completely uniform.

The main innovation is the capacity to maintain optimal performance, with excellent aesthetics. This specificity is essential for the development of so-called ‘active’ facades in the field of BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaics).

Our films allow builders, developers, and architects to treat PV panels as a new building element in their own right.

These new photovoltaic panels are totally invisible, even from close up. They could be mistaken for aluminum, Eternit or lacquered metal panels.

Solaxess has now moved in to new premises specially adapted to its development.
