Simrit, a unit of Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies, has debuted a theft-proof solar retaining clip for use with frameless thin-film solar PV modules. The company says the product ensures ‘homogeneous surface pressure, combined with tolerance-compensating silicone layers, to reduce module damage caused by movement.’
The clip requires no mounting hardware and only two essential parts, according to Simrit. The solution includes a bolt-free fastening clamp that is attached to an aluminum profile to help prevent theft. The clip is compatible with industry standards and certifications, and it does not require electrical grounding.
