Mounthing system for Slate roofs
Slate roofs are often found in old buildings, such as churches and luxurious houses. Common slate roofs are made with fibre cement slates and natural slate. It is possible to place solar panels on every slate roof by using the ClickFit system.
MATERIALS AND INSTALLING
The ClickFit system is attached to the roof by means of slate hooks. The slate hooks get covered between the slates and are attached to the batten, the shingle or the purlin. This is specialized work, because slates are usually very fragile. Special attention should also be paid to the waterproofing of the roof.
The mounting rail is screwed onto the slate hooks. For an optimal filling of the roof, the ClickFit system can be built up both as a single layer and as a double layer system, where the double layer system is more solid and more stable. The solar panels are hung onto the mounting rail by using the installation aid, so that the solar panels can be easily slid into the right place. The solar panels are subsequently screwed onto the mounting rail by means of the mounting screws and universal clamps. There is already a special screw thread in the mounting rail that simplifies the screwing in of the solar panels.
Materials and tools
The ClickFit assembly system is suitable for all brands and types of solar panels. The system is made of durable and high quality aluminium and stainless steel components.
There are special black clamps and caps for black solar panels that are placed over the assembly profile and the mounting screws. This gives the solar panels and the assembly system a complete black finish.
There is only a 10 mm socket wrench needed for the assembly of the solar panels."
