Mounting with precision

Coventry-based Mount Solar has launched a collection of multi-purpose solar roof anchors designed for narrow rafters.

Mount Solar says that the stainless steel anchors should accelerate the speed of installations and have been approved following independent tests by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) and a study by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC).

Dan Pearson, Mount Solar’s managing director, said:  “The new anchors have been specifically designed to provide an adaptable mounting system for all solar panel installations where rafters can be as narrow as 35mm.  In addition to the standard roof anchor, there is an extended version with a longer arm and also height adjustable versions available to accommodate all varieties of roofs.  Consequently the fitting is more precise and saves valuable installation time.

“The design and introduction of the mounting system follows a £20,000 investment in product development, tooling, industry consultation and testing over the last six months.  The innovative stainless steel design has also been protected.”
