New Product: Renusol GmbH develops new thin-film module mounting systems


Product Briefing Outline: Renusol GmbH has introduced three new mounting systems-ConSole DS, VarioSole DS and InterSole XL-for thin film solar modules using a new injection-compression technology. They are designed for thin-film modules and solar plants for industrial roofs. The thin-film laminates are anchored in linear fashion with this system, while integral anti-slip protection makes installation faster and simpler. Europe-wide patents have already been filed for all new systems.

Problem: The growth in thin film modules/laminate production requires new mounting techniques that incorporate low-cost solutions while providing fast and safe fitting. Conventional c-Si module mounting systems are not designed specifically for thin-film applications.

Solution: ConSole DS has been designed for modern flat-roof mounting system for thin-film modules/laminates measuring 1.1m x 1.3m and has been developed in close partnership with ersol Thin Film GmbH.

InterSole XL is an advanced version of the in-roof mounting system InterSole and lends itself particularly for use on agricultural and commercial buildings as such buildings are often roofed in profiled corrugated sheets or trapezoidal profiles and purling spacings of up to 1.5m. InterSole XL is designed with a view to spanning both roof characteristics and makes it possible to incorporate the PV modules into the building shell above the water-bearing layer. InterSole XL provides extra safety during installation thanks to the supporting aluminium profiles. These profiles also ensure that any wind and snow loads are reliably transferred to the building's roof structure.

VarioSole DS makes frameless glass/glass laminates (1.1m x 1.3m) even easier to fit on pitched roofs. First, integral anti-slip protection and spacers ensure that the laminates can be laid safely on the substructure during installation. Second, the laminates are anchored in linear fashion and secured with clamping bars. These clamping bars can also be matched to the structural requirements of the laminates made from various combinations of glass if required. Third, the height-adjustable, highly loadable roof hooks mean the number of mounting points can be matched to the roof's substructure. An additional centre support and additional suction fasteners are also available.

Applications: Thin-film modules/laminates for industrial rooftops.

Platform: ConSole DS, VarioSole DS and InterSole XL mounting systems with integral anti-slip protection.

Availability: Currently available.

The demand for rooftop solar PV is soaring, driven by falling costs of the technology against energy crises that are gripping countries globally. But while an increasing number of households turn to solar to generate their own electricity, there is now a need for more specialist equipment, technologies and services to ensure the solar transition can reach as many customers as possible. Delivering these is now a major challenge for rooftop solar installers. This webinar will analyse the characteristics of the rooftop solar market, discussing how the products, logistics, installation and servicing of solar systems has evolved in line with consumer demands.
