AEROCOMPACT releases sliding solar mount for standing seam rooftops
Solar Rack System Manufacturer AEROCOMPACT has added three sliding seam clamps to the COMPACTMETAL product range, allowing roofers and installers to mount solar modules of any length and width on almost all types of standing seam roofs without having to drill through the roof. The compact, CE-certified, pre-assembled mounts are available worldwide starting today.
Models TMRD08, TMK1508 and TMK2008 can be installed on roofs with craft seam panels or on industrial standing seam system roofs made of coated steel, aluminum and other materials. They are also suitable for copper roofs with the optional stainless steel saddle as the attachment prevents the aluminum clamps from reacting with the copper and corroding.
Installed with a click
Solar modules can be mounted directly on the AEROCOMPACT click clamp with integrated earth pins. The system-wide universal clamp is adjustable in height between 30 and 46 mm.
The clamp can be “clicked” into the connection profile of the upright zoom clamp or – when mounted in portrait format – into a rail system. For the rail option, AEROCOMPACT offers the X40/50 mounting rail from the CompactPITCH modular system. It is attached directly to the upright seam clamp with an XPN cross connector. With the planning software “AEROtool” from the company, different system variants can be designed and a construction analysis report can be generated.
“Thanks to the new sliding seam clamps, we are completing our product family. Whether Domico, Zambelli or Klip-lok – we now have a compatible solution in our range for every roof brand,” explains Christian Ganahl, CTO at AEROCOMPACT.
The current range of standing seam clamps includes double seam clamps, corner and snap seam clamps and round seam clamps. All clamp types have been extensively tested on sheet steel panels.
The clamps can withstand wind loads of approximately 220 km/h. All measured values have been tested by an independent certification institute in test series on different types of roofs. AEROCOMPACT offers a 25-year warranty.
AEROCOMPACT will be exhibiting the clamps and other new products at Solar Power International in New Orleans in September.
