AEROCOMPACT announces the launch of its new CompactPITCH XT35-VLOW quick mounting aluminium hook with a base plate 20 mm thick designed for PV systems on pitched roofs, which makes it particularly suitable for Mediterranean roof types and flat battens such as monk and nun or Portuguese tiles.
Unlike standard roof hooks for pitched roofs, the CompactPITCH XT35-VLOW new hook has two positions in the vertical plane instead of the usual plates with serrations and screws so all installers have to do is push the hook from the side into the guides of the base plate.
AEROCOMPACT offers both fastening screws for simultaneous positioning and mounting and positioning screws for decentralised base plates or concrete anchors.
Fixed in place with one screw
The base plate is fastened with wood screws. Then the hook is fine-adjusted by moving it horizontally in one of the two guide levels. Only one wood screw is required for the final fastening.
Fastening the base plate decentrally can also be done quickly and easily. In this case, the cantilevered base plate is fastened to the substructure with wood screws. The roof hook is fastened decentrally using a hexagon socket (which is supplied) and a threaded pin, which is clamped in the base plate by tightening it.
The base plate can also easily be anchored in concrete. “The final fastening with a single screw is unique”, says Christian Ganahl of AEROCOMPACT, who has applied for a patent for the concept.
To further reduce installation time, AEROCOMPACT offers the CE-certified roof hook optionally with a pre-mounted quick-release CL adapter. It can accommodate all X-mounting rails quickly and conveniently with the help of the innovative click mechanism. With the X40-X50 mounting rail, the framed modules can also be installed in landscape mode. The additional horizontal rails are simply mounted directly onto the base rails with the XDL cross connector.
AEROCOMPACT has stored the roof hook in the AeroTool planning and engineering software database. The company provides a 25-year warranty.
