Extreme hot weather conditions in Dubai (reaching up to 48 degrees Celsius during the summer months/118 degrees Fahrenheit), and the available sun energy of 2200 kWh per kWp presented the optimal opportunity for rooftop solar. The solar installer selected the PVKIT® direct-attach (rail-less) solar solution paired with the S-5-V clamp to provide an aesthetically pleasing, low-profile mounting system, allowing the maximum use of space on the roof.
Featuring just three components, the U.S.-made PVKIT enabled solar installers to fix solar panels directly onto the metal roof. The PVKIT’s pre-assembled components considerably reduce installation time and cost for PV mounting by eliminating the need for an elaborate rail system, while also providing better load distribution into the roof and substructure.
Using the S-5! mounting gear was also a mere 15% of the weight of rail mountings, and the only system recommended by the roof system manufacturer Aegis Roofing Company.
