After an issue with moss caused significant damage to the roof of one of the student accommodation houses, the university decided it was time for a change.
Brunel University in Uxbridge houses around 15,000 students every year and prides itself on excellence both in and out of the classroom.
After an issue with moss caused significant damage to the roof of one of the student accommodation houses, the university decided it was time for a change. The university was keen to try something new and asked for solar PV panels to be installed.
The Redland InDaX PV System differs from most PV units in that it is fully integrated into the roof rather than sitting on top of the tiles. This means that the integrity of the roof is maintained whilst delivering clean solar electricity generation.

50 Double Roman
50 Double Roman
Featuring gentle rolls and subtle pans, 50 Double Roman is a classic interlocking concrete tile with a distinctive Roman profile, available in a wide range of colours to blend harmoniously with any environment. Available in through-coloured and granular shades. InDaX photovoltaic integrated modules fulfil two functions: clean, solar electricity generation and a secure roof covering.
“I specified the 50 Double Roman tile because it suited the aesthetic of the surrounding buildings."
"The SpecMaster Guarantee was really important to the university and included all of the components that would be needed to complete the job. Having worked with Redland on multiple projects in the past, I know the products are of a high quality and my clients are always pleased with the end result.”
