Solar panels are either mounted on rooftops or on the ground and are exposed to the wind which exerts forces on them, in the form of drag or lift or a combination of both. Drag and lift forces on a flat panel could result from the shear stress at the panel’s surface or the difference in pressure induced by the wind on both sides of the panel or a combination of both phenomenon. Especially the connecting parts of solar panels and mounting structures tend to loosen due to such wind load, for which HARDLOCK® solution can be best used.

Numerous bolted joints are used to construct solar mounting system and it is difficult to carry out complete check on every joint on the upper side of panel arrays. HARDLOCK® nut is extremely effective at increasing the reliability of these joints by preventing all loosening!
