Mounting Systems

Mounting structures are used to fix solar panels (PV modules) to the roof or to the ground so they aren’t moved by wind or snow.

Most modules are fastened using top clamps, which clamp the module frame to a mounting rail or roof attachment. The clamps can double as spacers and clamp two modules simultaneously, reducing the total number of fasteners required. Regardless of clamp type, it is also important to clamp the module in the right places.

Most PV modules are designed to be clamped at the quarter-points where the mounting holes typically are. This ensures optimal loading on the module frame and provides maximum static and dynamic load capacity. Most manufacturers also allow for mounting on the short ends of the module.

Roofs vary considerably and different roof hooks are available for all types of roof coverings. Roof tiles such as slate, shingle, concrete, rosemary, etc have different options and it is important to install the correct roof fixings for each type of tile.

In addition, there are solutions available for flat roofs, pitched roofs, ground mount systems and also floating systems where panels are located on a water surface.
