S-5-PV Direct Attachment Solutions

The concept of combining photovoltaic arrays with standing seam metal roofing is growing—and for good reasons. A standing seam metal roof has a life expectancy consistent with that of framed PV modules.

A 30-year power source on a 40-year roof, along with zero-penetration technology, creates the most sustainable roof system available with alternative power generation, all without compromising the roof manufacturer’s warranty!

Solar Panel Mounting

The new stainless steel mounting disk is designed to ensure conductivitiy with anodized aluminum module frames.

Solar Panel Mounting

(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.
