GAF Energy, a Standard Industries company for solar roofing, has recently obtained approval from Los Angeles County for its Timberline Solar roof installation in buildings and residential areas. After a multi-month evaluation of the Research Section of the Department of Public Works Building and Safety Division, it got approval.
The review confirmed that Timberline Solar satisfies all the conditions of the County's 2023 Codes for Electrical, Residential, Building, Green Building, and Existing Building, as well as the 2022 Building Energy Efficiency Standards. Launched in 2022, it gains certification of UL 7103 as 'a Building-Integrated Photovoltaic Roof Covering'. In addition, it earns a Class A fire rating under UL 790 and ASTM E108, establishing its standard in fire resistance. The company produces and assembles its products like Timberline Solar at its R&D and manufacturing facility in San Jose, California.
The Timberline Solar Energy Shingle (ES) transforms traditional shingles with innovation to create an attractive look. In addition, it fulfills the third-party safety standards for both the roofing and solar energy sectors. This innovative solar roof received more than 30 awards and honors for design and innovation.
President of GAF Energy, Martin DeBono said, "In designing Timberline Solar, we put safety and durability first. We know that is what homeowners care the most about—and, as a team, we are committed to making the safest and most durable solar roof on the market."
