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.

3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape is a family of single coated, pressure sensitive adhesive tapes designed for difficult sealing applications. The backing on this tape is an ionomer film that is very tough yet flexible and abrasion resistant. The very soft and thick acrylic adhesive has excellent sealing properties and good outdoor durability. This single coated tape is designed to seal over an existing joint, seam, or penetration. The adhesive is designed to adhere well to the ionomer film so that overlapping tape joints can be made while maintaining a strong seal. 3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape - instant sealing that rolls on fast and looks good.
