the best and most efficient solar panel on the market

The SUNBEAMsystem Tough+ series, developed for professional purposes and high-end installations, now has the elegant black design option. Developed to integrate perfectly in the looks of both modern yachts and historical ships. All models are fitted with Sunpower™ cells with an efficiency of no less than 24.40%, resulting in a high production on even the smallest surfaces.

Tough+ Black series is equipped with the same superior materials that have previously been developed for the original Tough series by SUNBEAMsystem. The innovative Tough surface offers a longer lifespan than any other thin and lightweight solar panels. The anti-slip profile is not only practical for deck mounting; it also catches more light in low sun angles. Besides, the dirt-repellent properties also improve daily production by helping to keep the panels clean.

All Tough+ Black models come with the protected Shadow Optimized design to improve output in partial Shadowing conditions.

Being only 3mm thin, the panels can be seamlessly integrated on any hard surface (both flat and slightly curved). The flat SUNBEAMsystem Flush power cable will be invisible after installation, leaving no external wiring exposed, resulting in a robust and durable end result.

The Tough+ Black series is shipped without stainless steel eyes and includes a separately packed double-sided 3M sticker sheet for easy mounting.  If you prefer to use a kit instead, we recommend a soft flexible glue like the white Sikaflex 291i or 591.
