Englert. The company now offers an integrated system that combines its UltraCool-coated metal roofing with integrated PV, solar hot water heating, and rainwater harvesting. The SunNet solar standing-seam roof features ?-inch-thick laminate solar collectors. Mounted underneath is a solar thermal system that draws heat from the roof and transfers it to the hot-water system. Finally, three rainwater harvesting kits capture water for non-potable use; integrated LeafGuard and Gutter Tunnel protection help keep debris out of the containment tanks. 800.364.5378. www.englertinc.com
