2022 saw the price of oil and gas skyrocket due to supply and labor shortages, bans on foreign oil and the control of supply by foreign nations. This motivated many companies to re-think their energy sources to become less dependent on volatile oil prices while reducing carbon footprint. Solar energy is a great alternative, but panels must be properly installed and maintained to harness the most energy. For commercial facilities that include hundreds of square feet, there is a better way for contractors to reduce weight, improve installation time and reduce or eliminate damage to materials. For years, companies have depended on VELCRO® Brand products as a reliable solution to securing solar panels.
How to Install Solar Panels on a Roof While Reducing Weight, Labor & Cost of Repairs with VELCRO® Brand Products
Many commercial buildings need to align with new renewable energy regulations and incentives from local governments. Installing solar panels requires plenty of consideration. They need to be precisely positioned and mounted to capture sunshine at all hours of the day, from multiple angles.
VELCRO® Brand fasteners will not break down over time in outdoor conditions and reduce the need for mechanical parts that add weight and require tools or additional installation time. Without the need to drill holes, there is little to no risk for leakage or corrosion in the solar panel or roof. This also trims down on costs incurred from the risk of worker injury and damaged materials.
For commercial roofs, VELCRO® Brand fasteners create a secure closure that is easy to reposition and remove during maintenance and upgrades to a solar panel system. As quickly as solar energy infrastructure is evolving, updates could happen sooner than expected.
