EJOT UK’s Building Fasteners Division is reporting strong interest in its UK specific solar fixing bracket – i-Clip, following the product’s preview at the Roofex Show in Birmingham, early in May.
Product manager, Ben Gallant, said: “Solar i-Clip is a ‘one-bracket – one-stock’ solution consisting of a mounting plate, spacer and arm – and is specifically designed for UK domestic installations. Solar i-Clip’s modular design is fully adjustable with in-line fixing holes and full horizontal and vertical adjustment. This eliminates the need for on-site manipulation, normally found using the continental bracket types. A specially modified EJOT self-drilling fastener provides a high strength fix without splitting narrow trusses commonly found in the UK.
“The fastener variant was tested and selected to eradicate the need to insert a noggin between the minimum width rafters of a trussed roof design, allowing Solar i-clip to be mounted directly whilst conforming to Eurocode specifications.”
Solar i-Clip is available to order online at www.ejot.co.uk
