GAF Energy is recalling its line of Timberline Energy Solar Energy Shingles due to a defect that creates a potential roof fire hazard, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s recall notice.
There has been one report of a fire and five reports of “thermal incidents” from the solar energy shingles malfunctioning and overheating. No injuries have been reported. The shingles are used on light commercial and residential applications.
To remedy the situation, GAF Energy will provide a replacement for the defective jumper modules in the roofing system. The company will also check all the electrical components of each shingle to ensure no further fire hazard.
The company is contacting individual purchaser of the solar shingle system by phone to arrange for repairs. If facility managers have not yet been contacted, they should call their installer to facilitate repair.
