Anchoring excellence

UK solar mounting manufacturers REDtip has launched a stainless steel roof anchor it says is purpose-designed for UK roofs.

REDtip adds that the rooftop anchors reduce the need for grinding or cutting roof tiles and feature hooks designed for plan or rosemary tiles, large format flat tiles, profiled pan tiles and slates typically used in the UK. REDtip says its anchor range fits the dimensions and specifications of 80 per cent of the nation’s pitched roofs.

REDtip’s Gordon Ridgers said: “Maintaining the integrity of a slate or tiled roof is the single most time-consuming task facing any PV system installer. But, until now, there has been no other option for installers who have had to use imported hooks that are not designed for the style, size or fitting specifications of the roof materials we have in this country.

“The competitively priced REDtip anchors eliminate the hassle, simplify the installation and save a great deal of time… and therefore money.”
