Safety first; Onyx Solar is commited to deliver high quality products only, which meet international standards, codes, and safety guidelines. Accordingly, its production process has been verified by independent certifying bodies.
The company has deployed in its production process an Integrated Management System that has obtained the respective certifications according to the ISO 9001:2005 standard (Quality Management), and the ISO 14001:2015 standard (Environmental management).
Onyx Solar’s amorphous Silicon glass has been UL-1703 & ULC/ORD-C1703 listed: “Standard for Flat-Plate Photovoltaic Modules and Panels” standard. This is a milestone in this industry, since no company had been able to certify extra-large and semi-transparent PV Glass to this standard before.
Moreover, TÜV NORD lab has certified Onyx Solar’s crystalline glass according to the IEC 61215:2005 standard “Crystalline Silicon Terrestrial Photovoltaic (PV) Modules - Design Qualification and Type Approval”, and to IEC61730 2004:1&2 standard “Photovoltaic (PV) module safety qualification - -Part 1: Requirements for construction & Part 2: Requirements for testing”
In addition, in order to prove how the product properly follows the most stringent safety standards in construction, required for architectural glass, Tecnalia lab has tested our crystalline and amorphous silicon laminated glass in accordance with the requirements set by the UNE-EN 14449:2006 standard: “Glass in building - Laminated glass and laminated safety glass - Evaluation of conformity/Product”; this is a benchmark standard in the field of architectural glass for building integration. All tests turned to be a great success.
Among the most notorious tests, those on impact resistance (UNE-EN 12600:2003 standard) stood out, with the products achieving the highest ratings.
Tests for resistance to manual attack (UNE-EN 356:2001 standard) have also been conducted; amorphous Silicon glass got a P4A rating. Awesome!
Another important test undergone measures resistance to extreme climatic conditions (UNE-EN ISO 12543-4:2011 standard), keeping the glass explosed to extreme humidity conditions. After the test, our PV Glass preserved its lamination quality.

All these milestones demonstrate Onyx Solar’s leadership in photovoltaic glass for buildings.
