International solar PV module provider Upsolar was awarded with UNI 9177 standard, an Italian Fire Class 1 reaction certification.

The company’s UP-MxxxP series modules consist of non-flammable materials that ensure fire resistance and environmental sustainability.

Giuseppe D'Elia, Upsolar’s country manager in Italy said: “The results of this Fire Resistance Test are a testament to the excellence of the materials used by Upsolar in the production of our high-quality photovoltaic modules. Upsolar’s modules, especially when combined with power optimizing solutions from our technology partners SolarEdge and Tigo Energy, are among the safest products currently available on the market. By minimizing the risk of the formation and spread of fire, our modules simplify operations for installers while assuring the safety of our customers for the long run.”

The UNI 9177 test complies with the “Guide to the Installation of Photovoltaic Systems - Edition 2012” published by the Italian Ministry of the Interior’s Department of Fire, Rescue and Public Civil Defence.

  • Photovoltaics International 24th Edition

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt. Almost all the big-name suppliers have now announced some form of manufacturing capacity expansion, a trend that analysts agree will only gather pace as long as the levels of demand predicted over the next few years turn out to be correct.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
