The modules are assembled to make large self supporting structure, for the covering of both industrial or civil buildings, suitable for different use and architectural forms. The modules can be connected each other with connectors that provide a quick and fixed assembly.
Electrical and hydraulical connections are easy to connect too and proper tanks are placed on the side of the roof.
With these characteristics the roof becomes a complete appliance that generates energy, heating and cooling (solar and thermal energy), easy to transport and to install, a fully integrated modular roof at low cost.
We invented specific blocks for every need of the roof.
Modules, supporting and insulating part of the roof are connected with specific tubes and plates. The gasket system and the protective glasses made a reistant barrier against harsh weather conditions. Side metal sheets assure an high insulation level all over the perimetral surfaces of the roof, the gutters are designed for water harvesting. Electrical cables and hydraulic plumbings are integrated in the module structure and available on the inside for installation and inspection.
The inner part of the roof is covered with specific metal sheets that insulate, hide and protect the exposed parts of the roof system.

The basic external surface. The glass used, is a 3,2 mm tempered prismatic anti-hail glass, which is pasted on a peripheral frame aluminum-treated.
The glass can vary in colors.
Below the anti-hail glass, there is a solar thermal panel, with network connections to the interior.
The solar panel is made of a thin absorbing pigmented aluminium sheet, associated with the hydraulic circuit made of copper pipes.
It is a photovoltaic panel, with personalized frame, consisting of 66 polycrystalline cells.
The power rating of the panel is 270 Wp.
The electrical box of the photovoltaic panel is inserted in the main body in its own seat and sealed to bring the electrical connections within the network in order to connect them and inspect them for maintenance.
The photovoltaic panel is glued to the thermal panel, this allows to get maximum performance even in the presence of hot and sunny climates and facilitates the melting of the snow during cold winters.
The module is made in a single industrialized process called PLS (poliurethane layers system). Parts are assembled together and foamed to make solid and light monolites. Fixings, sealing elements and covers are all standardized for the MAS roof system.
Up to three modules on long side (or five modules on short side) can be mounted on the roof without needings of supporting beams, for an approximate span of 6 metres. The weight of the roof is only 35-40 kg/m², with energy panels that are already integrated in the structure of the module.
The roof is earthquake proof due to his high mechanical performance with a patented connection system made of plates and tubes.
The roof is made of a sandwich of materials that made him insulating for a value of thermal transmittance of 0,20 W/m²K, (comparable to 16 cm of pure rockwool).
The system includes:
- 3,2 mm of glass
- 35 mm double-glazing unit
- 30 mm rockwool
- 60 mm polyurethane foam
- 0,6 mm metal sheet (2x)
Moreover, where modules are connected:
- Aluminum and rubber gaskets
- Metal sheet and rockwool (50mm) fire-proof covers
The sealing system is made with perimetral gasket and closure caps.
It guarantees the ermetic closure between the interior and the exterior of the building.
The sealing rubber is covered and pressed on the glass surface by aluminium edges and caps. This make gaskets uv-resistant and weatherproof.
The sealing system is the same used for side closures of the roof.
Local companies made the parts of MAS modules with the highest quality standards; MAS Roof is responsible for the assembling in the factory with a single industrial process.
The transport is operated by a single supplier in 20' containers.
With two container we can transport a 100 m² shed roof, including full length window and structure. The entire structure can be mounted in a day by two skilled MAS employes.
Once operative, the roof wil be able to provide a large amount of energy that can be used for the electrical needs and the conditioning of buildings.
At the end of its life cycle the roof is completely removable, as also all the parts of the modules that can be disassembled and recycled or reused.
