When installing solar modules, fitters have been trusting the proven mounting system from the Eberswalde-based solar system company since 2005.
mp-tec will be presenting the latest generation of its Quick-Line mounting system at Intersolar, the world’s largest trade fair for the solar industry. In updating the system, mp-tec took user ideas into consideration, with the result that all base profiles now allow for two installation options. The base profiles are fitted with a channel for T-nuts as well as one for square nuts. In addition, the separate components are now even more resource-friendly. In the light of rising prices for raw materials, mp-tec has been able to keep component prices stable thanks to technological advancements in the Quick-Line mounting system. Despite the lower weight of the profiles, they feature high stability and high resistance to both wind and snow loads.
New to the range is the Big 150 base profile, which enables span widths of up to 6.70 m. It is particularly suitable for the construction of large-scale photovoltaic systems on industrial, hall or stadium roofs with purlin spacing to a six-metre grid. The Quick-Line system enables span widths of 1.75 m to 9.60 m, depending on the choice of base profile and load scheme. Complemented by insert profiles, special back rail module profiles, clamps, hooks, fasteners, screws and cross and profile connectors, Quick-Line offers the right solution for virtually any application.
The 3,795 respondents to a manufacturer-independent survey carried out in May 2011 on photovoltaikumfrage.de also realised the value of this. Asked about the most well-known manufacturers of mounting systems, mp-tec was named second out of 76. The survey shows that system owners choose Quick-Line because they see its flexibility, the minimal installation work it requires, its stability and its optimum load transfer, even with large purlin spacing, as major benefits. Asked about the choice of manufacturer, users of the system stated that the high quality of workmanship and the broad product range were the deciding factors.
mp-tec provides a 15-year guarantee on all assembly components. The system made of premium, weather-resistant aluminium and stainless steel is DEKRA-certified.
