Range of products for undertaking photovoltaic installations on roofs. Solutions designed to guarantee a quick, efficient and reliable installation. We have different systems with their corresponding solutions for assembly, fastening and watertightness, complementing a vast selection of products from the INDEX® catalogue.
What are the types of fixings for solar panels?
The fixings for solar panels have a very clear purpose: to support the photovoltaic panels by means of a firm and resistant anchorage capable of withstanding any environmental circumstance.
They are a fundamental part in defining the orientation of the structures and all of them are manufactured with resistant materials (aluminium or steel with Atlantis C4-M coating) to withstand adverse weather conditions.
At INDEX you can find a wide range of fixings and accessories designed specifically for this purpose:
- Adjustable triangles. They are ideal for fixing solar panels at an angle and are mainly made of steel and aluminium. They are used as a complement to the support and help to regulate the inclination of the panels on the roof.
- Profiles, joints and guides. Generally, profiles are used in coplanar mounting systems, where the fastening is completely attached to the roof of the building. The peculiarity is that, in order to be able to install them, the surface must have its own inclination to ensure an optimum result.
- Connectors for the assembly of solar structures. These pieces are key to, as their name suggests, joining the pieces that support the photovoltaic panels. Within this group we can find screws, nuts or washers.
- Direct fixing. The direct fixing anchors are perfect for joining solar panels in a fast, safe and efficient way. Within this category, on the INDEX website, you will find screws with washers and rivets made of resistant materials that facilitate their installation.
- Staples. Staples are an essential element for reinforcing the fixing of solar panels and also facilitate the electrical connection between the panels and the supporting structure. They are valid for intermediate areas as well as for the ends of the solar panels.
- Adjustable accessories. At INDEX you will find a wide range of adjustable accessories for solar panels. These range from adjustable hooks to double-threaded screw plates. All these products are used for fixing to structures of different materials and are always accompanied by complementary elements.
- Sealing accessories. Washers and sealing tapes are used as a complement to the fastening systems that pass through the roof. It is important to note that the sealing tapes are designed for coplanar mounting systems with direct fixing on the roof.
- Kits for solar installations. The kits we have available on our website are adapted for coplanar or triangular installations and include all the necessary elements to complete the whole assembly process.
