PanelClaw Inc., a manufacturer of photovoltaic module mounting solutions, has launched Polar Bear – the company's first commercial flat-roof mounting system. Polar Bear is a non-rail based, ballasted mounting system offering features designed to save integrators, architects, inspectors and building managers money and time.
The product features only three components (support, claw and deflector) and two types of fasteners, PanelClaw says. Factory-installed electrical grounding allows for faster array installation, and a tilt-up design aids installation and array or roof maintenance.
Polar Bear, which will be distributed exclusively through groSolar, was subjected to extensive independent wind-tunnel testing at Colorado State University's Wind Engineering and Fluids Laboratory; computational fluid dynamics modeling; finite element analysis; static load testing; electrical grounding standards research; and extensive beta testing at three separate large-scale commercial sites installed by Nexamp.
