PanelClaw announced today it will reveal the next generation of its ballasted commercial flat roof solar mounting systems at Intersolar North America, July 12-14, in San Francisco (booth # 7851).
PanelClaw’s Polar Bear FR Gen II and Grizzly Bear FR Gen II solar racking solutions feature design enhancements that deliver lower project costs and offer greater design flexibility.
"Innovation is at the core of our value proposition," said Costa Nicolaou, PanelClaw President. "Polar and Grizzly Bear Gen II represent the fulfillment of our promise to invest in cutting edge engineering and deliver the next generation of ballasted solar mounting systems."
Overview of PanelClaw Gen II Mounting Solutions
Greater Design Flexibility
PanelClaw’s Gen II flat roof solar mounting systems offer several new features that provide increased flexibility to address varied roof conditions and project requirements. Product enhancements include a new 5 degree tilt option, increased inter-row spacing selections, and enhanced wavy-roof friendliness.
Drastically Reduced Grounding Costs
All PanelClaw’s module mounting claws are UL 2703 certified electric grounding and bonding devices. UL 2703 certification enables PanelClaw partners to ground large array segments with a single grounding device, reducing labor and material requirements and increasing installation speeds for Polar and Grizzly Bear Gen II projects.
Advanced Roof Protection
Polar and Grizzly Bear Gen II deliver superior thermal compensation through the addition of a new a-thermalized deflector and an integrated recycled rubber roof protection pad for both Polar and Grizzly Bear. These features, combined with the existing thermal flexibility of PanelClaw’s non-rail based system, provide advanced roof protection and are designed to help PanelClaw partners obtain roofing manufacturer approvals and reduce installation times.
