Flexible ​Solar Panels

Flexible ​Solar Panels

Born to work well even in particularly difficult circumstances and under heavy mechanical stresses typical of extreme ocean racing, the photovoltaic module "SOLBIANFLEX" is a true revolution in the field for the high efficiency never achieved by a light and flexible panel and for the outstanding resistance to weather and degrading agents such as thermal shock, fog and salt water, solar radiation and shocks (can be walked on). The panel is made of special polymers selected by researchers of CNR, a patented technology.

Solar 4 RVs™ is the Australia and New Zealand importer of Solbian products.

Marine grade Solbian (Italian made) premium solar panelsare flexible, lightweight, extremely powerful and resistant to the harsh operating conditions of the marine environment.

Monocrystalline Flexible Solar Panels with SunPower E20® series cells 

   SunPower E20® series cells were developed in the US and capture significantly more sunlight and conduct more electrical current than other solar cells.  Solar panels containing SunPower E20® series cells are the highest efficiency panel available on the market today, providing more power in the same amount of space.  Efficiency refers to the percentage of sunlight hitting the panel that gets converted into electricity therefore a higher panel efficiency means that the panel can generate more power.

​  These Monocrystalline panels made in China are thin, lightweight and semi-flexible.  We tested them and found they are non-slip if walking on them with aqua shoes and most sneakers but they can be slippery with bare feet or thongs/flip-flops.  Walking on the panels however should be avoided where possible as a point load could cause damage to the cells.   ​ 

​The panels can be permanently installed using adhesive sealant or VHB tape or temporary installation is an option using eyelets provided at each corner or zips.

These panels carry our Solar 4 RVs brand so we monitor the factory quality carefully and inspect and test each panel before delivery to the customer.
