NORTH ANDOVER, MA – PanelClaw, a leader in photovoltaic mounting systems, announced today the addition of the Kodiak Bear™ FR flat roof solar mounting system to its portfolio of ballasted systems. Available in 15- and 20-degree tilt angles, Kodiak Bear features maximum factory integration, integrated wire management, and multiple row-spacing options for increased energy production. The new system will be revealed at Intersolar North America, July 10-12, at booth #9023.
Among Kodiak Bear's advancements is a highly engineered ballast block exclusive to the system. The 8,000psi concrete block, manufactured to rigorous quality standards, is designed for optimal freeze-thaw resistance and secure stacking. Its durability and precision will ease system deployment from design through commissioning.
"PanelClaw has launched five products in five years—a strong statement of our commitment to innovation," said PanelClaw President Costa Nicolaou. "Kodiak Bear retains the best elements of our trusted flat roof product line, and goes even further to incorporate features our partners are looking for to achieve low-hassle, high-yield projects."
High Benefits, Low Installation Time
Kodiak Bear features just three major components—and a single loose fastener—making it uniquely simple to install. The system's Supports are constructed from galvanized steel tubing, which is easy to handle and eliminates metal edges near roof surfaces. As with all PanelClaw systems, Kodiak Bear's module-attachment Claw is ideally suited for use with a wide variety of photovoltaic modules. Its single-module layout flexibility and optimized array footprint easily accommodate even complicated layouts.
Additionally, Kodiak Bear is available with a flexible wire management tray that quickly and seamlessly integrates with the system's recycled rubber roof pads.
