TWO NEW PV SYSTEMS OFFER NON-PENETRATING INSTALLATION
Two new PV systems are available: 1) a rigid glass-based polycrystalline silicon module that can be installed on standing seam metal roofs using a non-penetrating clamp, and 2) a flexible, thin film module that can be adhered to the metal roof panel in a factory environment, allowing the PV array and roof panels to be installed simultaneously. These PV systems can be installed on existing and new metal roofs because they don’t penetrate the substrate. Furthermore, a metal roof likely will outlive the solar equipment, saving removal and replacement costs associated with other roof materials.
LIGHT SHELF ALLOWS FOR EASY CLEANING
The InLighten light shelf features an extruded-aluminum chassis system in several panel choices. It comes in depths of up to 30 inches of reflective surface. InLighten light shelf’s new design incorporates a unique mounting bracket that allows the panel to be tilted for cleaning, an important maintenance factor in schools, daycare centers, offices, and other commercial and institutional applications. The light shelf can be attached to multiple curtain wall systems and storefront framing systems for application in new construction and retrofits.
NEW COMBINATION FIRE ALARM/ECS MEETS NFPA, UL, DOD STANDARDS
The Farenhyt Emergency Communication System (ECS) provides fire alarm technology and mass notification capabilities in an all-in-one system. This real-time communications system meets the latest NFPA 72, UL 2572, and Department of Defense standards and runs on most wire-types, making it an effective retrofit option. As many as seven ECS-RCUs (“remote command units”) can tie into a facility’s Farenhyt ECS system to provide live paging in specific areas of a property. BD+C
