Screw-free click installation


The Pi track consists of a horizontal support that the manufacturer says combines the geometric advantages of Z and I profiles. According to the company, that means less material and lower costs and at the same time higher stability and greater range. The solar modules can simply be clicked into the Pi track – no need for drilling or screwing.

Mounting Systems designed a specially adjusted adapter for this. The company is also presenting the in-roof support frame system Zeta, which was specially designed for the French market and will be available there in late 2010 as a fully roof-integrated system, so it will receive the country’s highest possible feed-in tariff.

The Zeta is designed for framed modules with any frame height and can be installed on any roofing. It is mounted directly on the roof battens and therefore replaces the conventional roofing. Rain rolls right off the module, which according to Mounting Systems is just as waterproof as a conventional tiled roof. An additional substructure is not necessary, and a special click system offers quick and easy installation, the company says.
