Solar panels are being installed on commercial and residential roofs. These arrays provide perfect harbourage for birds, and homeowners are desperate for a solution that does not involve piercing or damaging the solar panels with mechanical fixings or adhesives, hence avoiding warranty infringements.
This innovative system is designed specifically to keep all birds from getting under solar arrays, protecting the roof, wiring, and equipment from damage.
A typical solar panel is approximately 1.6m tall and 1m wide, on a typical panel one should use 3 clips on each long edge and 2 clips on each short edge.
This non-penetrating system is fast and easy to install, and can be removed for service.
STEP 1: Place clips every 450mm / 18 inches. Slide the clip onto the underside edge of the panel support bracket. Slide as far outward as possible so the clip is all the way on the lip of the panel.
STEP 2: Set the wire mesh screen in place. Make sure the fastener rod comes through the screen at an upward angle as to keep downward pressure on the screen, pushing it towards the roof.
STEP 3: Slide the speed washer onto the shaft of the clip assembly until snug. Make adjustments to the screen as necessary. Tighten speed washer to panel edge.
Include a 75mm (3inch) overlap of the mesh when installing the next section.
STEP 4: Cut off any excess mesh screen sticking over the top edge of the solar panel array. Cut of the clip assembly rod flush with the exterior of the speed washer.
