Powerway Easily Passes Test of Japan 42m/s — A Force 14 wind

Recent testing found the PowerFit system is suitable for all kinds of flat-roofed PV plants thanks to its high load capacity and fully-aluminum design. Its specially conceived wind deflector system effectively reduces wind pressure, and guarantees system safety while maximizing carrying capacity.

Wind tunnel testing is required to verify the structural and mechanical strength of solar mounting systems. The simulation involves driving intense winds through a controlled-airflow tunnel to stress a module, while scientists measure its stability and safety. This test is one of the most sophisticated ways to challenge an outdoor module, to verify its wind load capacity and see if it will achieve relevant standards.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
