An enhanced version of the original PVKIT rail-less, solar mounting solution for metal roofs, PVKIT HUR (High Uplift Resistance) is part of Centroplan's solar and metal roof system; and it is the first-of-its-kind PV mounting system specifically designed for high wind uplift performance of installed solar panels.
Designed for coastal communities, island geographies and other high-wind zone areas, the system is also the first metal roof PV mounting system to receive FM Approvals' toughest PV Standard—FM 4478.
Centroplan's listed system combines the PVKIT HUR paired with the S-5-E™ standing seam clamp, JA modules and the Butler MR-24® roof.
Designed to withstand extreme wind uplift forces such as hurricane forces, as well as heavy snow loads, the 6" (152 mm) length of the overhead grabs, providing a larger contact area with the top of the PV module’s frame. This prevents it from releasing as the module frame bows under extreme forces. A new contact surface design and angle also increases the grip on the frame. The new baseplate design further prevents the module from bending and disengaging under high wind uplift forces. Together, these features improve the structural integrity of the module-to-roof attachment.
