Renusol America will be unveiling its new ‘Renusol MS’ system at Solar Power International 2013.
Renusol MS is a simple, compact and cost effective pitched roof solution that was developed specifically for mounting PV modules to trapezoidal sheet metal roofs that attaches directly to the sheet metal, which eliminates the need for long rails and attachments to purlins or rafters.
Made of stainless steel and aluminium for longevity, the Renusol MS system consists of a clamp base for quick installation, self-piercing and self-tapping screws with hardened tips that eliminate rooftop drilling, and pre-assembled, adjustable mid- and end-clamps for securing the PV panel. EPDM gaskets under all clamp bases and fasteners protect against leaks. The system was said to have been third party tested for waterproof assurance.
“Eliminating the need for rails with this innovative clamping system means enormous savings in installation time and shipping costs for installers,” said Renusol America CEO Bart Leusink. “A complete mounting system for a 5kW system can fit in a shoebox size package and be shipped to the jobsite overnight.”
The Renusol MS system is compatible with all widely used sheet metal roofs 26-gauge or thicker with flat trapezoidal peaks at least three-quarters of an inch in width. The adjustable Renusol MS system fits all commonly used modules, reducing the inventory that installers need to carry. The system is also ICC and UL approved, which helps to expedite the permitting process.
The new mounting system will be displayed on Renusol America’s SPI booth #3310.
