Wagner Solar has announced the launch of the TRIC F box, flat roof racking system and TRIC clip panel fastener for the UK market at Solar Power UK 2012. 

The company’s new TRIC clip panel fastener is capable of automatically snapping into the right position, letting the installer know with an audible click when it’s secure. The patented-design allows the clamp to still be moved after it has been clicked securely in place. Wagner believes that the innovative new design will save significant installation time because the clamp comes completely pre-assembled, ready for installation.

Kamil Shah, Marketing Manager of Wagner Solar added: “We’ve launched the TRIC clip in the UK market at Solar Power UK 2012 and we’ve had unanimous positive feedback, people have seen what issue we are trying to solve and to them it’s a no-brainer.”

The TRIC clamp is available in silver or black to and is suitable for all common framed PV panels with frame thickness from 30 to 55mm. 

Wagner Solar is also debuting its new TRIC F box, to the UK market at Solar Power UK. The TRIC is an extremely low ballast flat roof racking system that is suitable for all types of industrial flat roofs.

Wagner’s TRIC F box has been designed so that it can be installed with just two tools, dramatically reducing installation time and the product’s lightweight means the ballast required is also smaller. Wagner estimates that the minimum ballast could be as low as 5kg per module.

“From the outset, our TRIC racking systems have been designed and developed with the installers needs in mind – this has been characterised by the pre-assembled components which speed up installation and make them easy to handle. Our TRIC F box continues in this direction,” commented Jan Stasik, Technical Manager at Wagner Solar UK Ltd.

Wagner will be offering two variants of the TRIC F box, for both south-facing orientations and east/ west-facing. The design of the mounting system means that all modules are installed vertically and, due to an angle of 10°, Wagner estimates that the useable roof area can be increased by a minimum of 65 percent and a maximum of 95 percent depending on orientation.

The new TRIC F box will join the rest of Wagner’s TRIC racking range in carrying a 10 year product warranty as standard.

Wagner Solar is showcasing both new TRIC products at Solar Power UK in the NEC, Birmingham in booth D27.
