A leading company in the solar PV mounting systems market has announced the launch of a new product which will ensure a more precise fitting.
Designed specifically for roofs in the UK, Coventry-based Mount Solar is a manufacturer and supplier of mounting systems and they have designed a new set of four stainless steel solar roof anchors which are capable of accommodating even the narrowest of rafters.
The launch follows a £20,000 investment in product development which lasted for 6 months, alongside industry consultation and product testing. The roof anchors, which has been patented, has been approved by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors and has passed the Building Research Establishment’s independent tests in accordance with MCS012.
“The new anchors have been specifically designed to provide an adaptable mounting system for all solar panel installations where rafters can be as narrow as 35mm,” explained Mount Solar’s managing director Dan Pearson.
Alongside the standard roof anchor, the company has also designed an extended version which features a longer arm and height adjustable versions. So all varieties of UK roofs had be accommodated.
“Consequently, the fitting is more precise and saves valuable installation time.”
Mount Solar was established in 2009. They were the UK’s first specialist solar mounting system company.
