As solar panels are getting bigger, Van der Valk Solar Systems is continuously adapting their range to this. That is why they have added a new product for “extra” support for solar panels on flat roofs: the aluminum panel support for the ValkPro+ system.
FlatFix Fusion has been updated
The FlatFix Fusion system has been successfully applied in many projects throughout Europe in recent years. Esdec’s research & development department is continuously looking for opportunities not only to develop new products, but also to make existing products even better. And that was done last year for, among others, FlatFix Fusion.
High and low base optimization
The high and low base, where the panels are attached to the mounting system, have been renewed so that they have even better and more durable clamping power. This is not only important for more extreme weather conditions, also when maintenance has to be carried out on the PV system, the securing must remain optimal after removing and replacing a panel.
Renewed end clamps
The clamp now has small bulges on the underside that fit precisely into holes in the high and low base. In this way, the clamp always remains in the correct position when tightening and installing can hardly go wrong. Esdec also looked at how it could be made easier to ground a row of panels. The solution for this has been found in adding a notch in the end clamp where grounding clips fit exactly. This ensures a nice and safe way of grounding.
Improved wind deflextors
The side plates have been modified and now have rounded corners. The most important update in this section is that the side deflectors now have push-out cable outlets. In combination with the cable exit guide, you can now bundle and dispose of your cables in an even safer way. This is also a desirable addition to the system’s advantages for strain relief of the cables.
