PVKIT® (2.0)
Direct-Attach Rooftop Solar Panel System

Save up to 50% in Freight, Labor, Logistics and Installation Time With Direct-Attach™ Solar Mounting.

Getting project materials to the jobsite and onto the roof are often considered unavoidable costs associated with solar mounting.

It costs money every time you have to move materials and/or equipment. What if you could greatly reduce the weight and volume of your solar system?

Using the PVKIT can save you up to 50% in:

  • Hardgoods – For example, a 50kW system requires about 150 lbs. (68kg) of parts vs. 970 lbs. (440kg) of rail.
  • Shipping – 80% lighter weight than rail mounting. Fewer than 3.5 lbs./kW (1.6kg) vs. 19.4 lbs. (8.6kg/kW) for rails.
  • Material transportation to the site – The 50 kW system delivers to the job site in the trunk of your car.
  • Lifting equipment not needed – Equipment is only necessary for projects more than 500kW.
  • Installation time and cost – Locate modules as desired without customizing rails. Installation time is 30-50% less.

Want to Reduce Solar Mounting Costs on Your Next Metal Roof Project?

Getting project materials to the jobsite and onto the roof are often considered unavoidable costs associated with solar mounting.

*Due to the variety of attachment needs, S-5-PV Kits are sold separately from S-5! mini clamps. The S-5-PV Kit fits only S-5! mini clamps, NOT standard clamps.

Your Metal Roof Already Comes with Rails for Solar Mounting. Why Pay for Rails Twice?

Using the roof’s integrated “rails” makes solar mounting quick and convenient. What’s more, direct-attach with the S-5-PVKIT 2.0 reduces the weight of the mounting system by 85% while providing 25% better load distribution and 70% fewer components, as well as lower material costs compared to rail mounting.

With total mounting system weight below 3.5 lbs./kW (1.6kg)/kW compared to 19 lbs. (8.6 kg)/kW for railed systems, the savings in transport costs and logistics is tremendous. The solar zone layout is more flexible. The added load to the building structure is far less. Material handling is reduced and simplified with only 3 components for the mounting system. Electrical bonding is automatic. “Lay and play” installation saves time on the roof.
