A standing seam metal roof has a life expectancy consistent with that of framed PV modules. Combining that with a 30-year power source, along with zero-penetration technology, creates the most sustainable roof system available with alternative power generation.
PV KIT Aluminium Disk:
The S-5-PV Kit features a new stainless steel mounting disk with twelve nodes to allow the module-to-module conductivity of anodized aluminum module frames.
No lugs or wire required except to connect one string of modules to another and to ground the system. This connection detail represents installed electrical cost savings of $6-$12 per unit.
PV KIT Setup Examples:
Left: Without the S-5-PV Direct Attachment Solutions, lugs or copper wires are required to bond PV panels within a string of modules.
Right: Using the S-5-PV Direct Attachment Solutions, wires and lugs are no longer needed from module-to-module, but will still be needed to bond strings together and to ground the system.
Note: The drawings above show an example of continual conductivity; please refer to the engineer for specific job layouts.
